I’ve had a few Punch cigars and found them to be a good, solid manufacture with enough variance in their lineup to have something for everyone. The Sucker Punch King Hit, should make the folks at Punch quite proud. A great golf course cigar, the King Hit is likely to be a frequent guest on my golf outings.
I have to admit, the Punch Sucker Punch King Hit kind of surprised me with the flavor and consistency.
The light tan wrapper had me thinking the King Hit was going to be a bit mild for my pallet. Once I fired up the first one and took a draw I was pleasantly surprised. Punch has somehow concocted a mixture of Ecuadorian fillers wrapped in a shade grown Connecticut wrapper to give the King Hit just the right amount of spice and leather flavors us full bodied smokers. With this kind of flavor profile, you’re not limited as to when or where you fire up. I’ve found it suits just about any occasion, grilling, golfing, after work smoke, during work smoke, you get the idea. Consistency was very high among the five I smoked with none having any obvious defects. Flavor profile was just as consistent as the construction as each cigar was relatable to the next. I would add, once you get down below the halfway point, the spice notes start ganging up and by the last bit, it can be quite robust.
Lots of smoke, easy draw, and consistent construction, the King Hit rules.
The super easy draw actually kind of scared me at first. My first thought was the King Hit was going to burn up but again, I was wrong. As far as burn time goes, I would say the Sucker Punch King Hit is normal with loads of smoke and a great ash. While playing a few rounds the ash was quite firm having to be flicked off from time to time to keep from making a mess.
If you like a reasonably priced medium bodied cigar with a bit of spice to it, the Sucker Punch King Hit might just be for you…
There are plenty of times a less complicated smoke is really all you want. Golfing is one of those times. The sample pack I tried, gave me a good introduction to the Sucker Punch King Hit and it’s fairly flat flavor profile. Paired with the generous price point of around $4.50 per cigar when ordered by the box, the Sucker Punch King Hit a no brainer for a quick, easy smoke for most any occasion. I would love to hear your opinion on this one so reach out to us if you want to share.
