Thread had slowed that's for sure. I have some new additions I will have to take a picture of and post later.

Punch has always been one of my favorites. It's a unique flavor. I can't say I'm much of a Maduro fan though.
I've probably smoked 20 boxes of Punches in various sizes, and the rule is they're rolled a bit loose for me. Odd that yours drew a bit tight. Did you let the box sit for a few days before trying one? JR tends to store their cigars a bit moist so they don't dry out during shipping.
2 of my favorite cigars ever were Canary Islands labels. One was called La Fama and the other was Capote. I believe both brands vanished after the cigar boom fizzled about 10 years ago.
They were the sweetest, creamiest, nuttiest tasting cigars I have ever had. Mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm. Very mild. Now, I like a lot of different strengths and flavors, but in the mild category, these were untouchable.
I'm a big fan of Montecristo's. I had a number 1 when I was in Europe a few years ago, along with a few Cohiba cubans. I stick more with Padron, Punch, and Oliva at this point.
I also smoke a pipe. I'm not as into different brands of Tobacco since my local shop does a custom blend (Called General Buford for the American Civil War general who was one of the commanders at Gettysburg, where the shop is). I also have a hand carved pipe made by a gentleman who lives in the area around my home. I'll take a picture when I have time to get some new batteries for my camera.
also, welcome to head-fi, its good to have you.
