There are good cigars and there are great cigars and the Punch Super Selection #2 is one of the truly great cigars. I have been working on a cab of these for a while. I am not sure of the date, but they have been sitting in my humidor for at least 6 years. From time to time I smoke one and am always delighted. I remember when I opened the package when it arrived at my office. When I cut away all of the extra packaging and wrapping and opened it up I was met with the richest, earthiest aroma that I have ever experienced from a box of cigars. They were dark and oily and it took all I had not to just smoke them up, but my patience has been rewarded. This morning I took a nice long ride. God, I love long rides. I chose a particularly beautiful specimen to accompany me. It still had that deep earthy aroma and had developed a lovely haze. I fondled it and smelled it for a while before lighting. The first puff was heaven. Rich, spicy, but mostly tobacco. Deep earthy, aged tobacco. I could smoke these all the time, but I won't because each one smoked depletes my dwindling supply and I may never get a cab like this one again. I love cigars, but I especially love a truly great cigar.

Re: Punch SS #2

having had a few terrific punch-punchs, and knowing they also make the one you reviewed and the Royal Sel #11... which to choose from?

sounds like an excellent experience though. you have more willpower than i do, that's for sure.

Great review!
The guy that initially introduced me to the Slippery Slope will say (when he pulls out a prized beauty) "Man...they're so good I don't even wanna smoke 'em!".

all fairly close IMHO...........If I had to pick one (and it's tough), I would have to pick the SS.

Too bad these are on the cut-list...I gotta get my hands on some!

Very nice review!
Damn I totally forgot about that..............well I hope I can get a Cab or 2 before they get cut.

If not oh well.......but I would like to get at least 1 cab to hold onto.

i must say, forgetting about what you have in a humidor is really not fair at all.

Re: Punch SS #2

No, its not that I have that many...I wish. I built myself a cabinet humidor last year, and being so empty it becomes cavernous and difficult to find things. :D

I bought them as singles, and I typically put unbanded singles into old boxes. Out of sight out of mind.

be assured that my forgetfullness is a function of the size of my brain, not the size of my collection.
