Was Perusing MRN Today....


Recommended Posts

.....smoking a Norteño, and I came across the Punch Triunfos. I know it’s a machine made and has been discontinued for 40 years, but something about that 109 head and a 42 gauge really does it for me. Even the name is fantastic.

Random post, I know.

Personally I don't get it.......it's seems like every man and his dog these days thinks that anything with a 109 drop head equals a great cigar.

Well, a lot of them have been recently.

I agree, however, that there is a rather weak correlation between the shape of the head and the flavor ;)

Not “great”, just great looking. If they came out with these again my reaction would be:

Haha, what ever floats your boat dude. 

I enjoy the go......not the show.     To each their own, I can see the interest, it just doesn't feature that highly for me.

I know myself--maybe it's my Asian-ness, but I'm particularly susceptible to marketing. Hell, if they put them in a nice box with nice bands they could charge me a lot more--I'd buy a cajon of them. And even if they tasted like crap I'd tell myself "just 30 more years and these'll be fantastic."

I agree and I'll add this is not even a "109" head", it's the typical MM'head of yesteryear…

you're taking the words out of my mouth - standard machine-made head, nothing special.
