Had one of these each yesterday, one at lunch, the other after dinner. Both are great smokes but I believe that the SLR will be better with seven years of age on it than the Punch with similar ageing. The Punch is full bodied yet very smooth and creamy. The draw was a bit tight but nowhere near plugged. Perfect burn and excellent flavors of cream/toffee and caramel. The SLR, while medium bodied, was much spicier with that honey taste that you get from that brand. Better draw than the Punch, it was constructed perfectly. Realized that after I smoked it that I only have a cab and a half left-oh no!!!!!!!! Oh well, I ordered another cab today. Don't want to run out-LOL.
