Cu-Avana Punisher Shorty Edition Cigar Review
This 4.5×60 stick features an oily, dark brown firm wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a satin feel and peppery tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw and plentiful smoke output after clipping it down a 2nd time, with the entire effect/flavor being heat and tingle, completely overwhelming any actual taste from the tobaccos. The finish is long and the same, making your mouth absolutely salivate constantly. It takes nearly 30 min to get 1/2 way through where the heat starts to die down enough that it lets some of the flavors come through. The draw has a medium bodied creamy smooth tobacco and leather, holding the cream through the finish, blending well with all the spice. Burn isn’t great, needing a touchup to continue. 50 minutes in at the top band point the heat is exhausted, just leaving a mild-medium tobacco, cream and slight leather with a long finish of the same. Ending 1:05 in the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you to viewer Bryan White for sending me this to review!
