KavalanWhisky Posted May 6, 2019 Share Posted May 6, 2019 Busy weekend but managed to fit in a few smokes so not all bad, I've only smoked the San Cristobal El Principe before so when I saw a box of La Punta in my local cigar lounge it was a perfect excuse to kill two birds and decided to pick one up. The size was good, exactly the same as one of my favourites the BBF so I was excited to see what flavour profiles it would deliver. I smoked it the next day and paired it with a latte at one of my favourite coffee shops but it was a warm rainy afternoon. Initial cold draw I got notes of hay but not much else. Lighting up and first couple of puffs I was hit with woody and earthy notes, very mild flavours. Smooth with no peppery tones. Mid way through I was get the odd hint of toast and roasted almonds mixed with the undertones of earthy notes, the coffee was a little strong so I decided to use Ice water as a palette refresher. Final third, it was a very smooth finish, no real development of flavours just a good smoke but a bit too mild for my tastes. But was great and ash held on for decent size chunks before I kept ashing on my jeans but apart from that a good overall experience. I would rate it 86/100 as I prefer a more full bodied smoke. Not sure if I would try a more aged example but was a nice first La Punta. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
