Punch Royal Seleccion No.12 SLB - 25 cigars [5.1 x 42]
Here is a gem by Punch and a clear demonstration that the Mareva is one of the most appreciated and best welcomed formats. This is a far-reaching Habanos, where cigar makers very much demonstrate their knack. If the saying that the best candies come in small boxes could be applied to cigars, this one would serve as one of the best examples. Medium aroma and flavor that remain delightfully present throughout the smoke.

- I am totally in agreement with the comments stated by PollyWolly, great cigar and value for money. Don't know it has been discontinued or too popular, I have waited for too long to re-order and I only have 8 left from my last order in 2010...

A Small Punch With A Big Punch
With copious amounts of smoke that bring with it some of the most authentic tastes of its Cuban heritage, the Punch Royal Seleccion No.12 stands alone in this size category.
It is hard to imagine a cigar of this demeanor being able to produce smoke that would rival a coal-burning locomotive at full stoke. But aside from the volume of smoke derived from this pint-sized vitola, the bouquet of aromas would prove difficult to beat in any contest.
This cigar, and this cigar alone, could convert any lover of the leaf who has never had the incredible experience of smoking an authentic Habano (no matter what their size preference) over to a Cuban cigar devotee for life.
BE FOREWARNED: This cigar is a FULL BODIED treat that needs an experienced cigar smoker to really appreciate its goodness. Like most Punch cigars, it brings with it great value and solid workmanship. The burn is precise and the ash seems to defy the forces of gravity.
This is the one cigar that I would advise any fence-sitter who has been afraid to order online, to do so once he grows bigger cajones. (It continues to amaze me how uncertain and distrusting so many cigar smokers are when it comes to purchasing Cuban cigars from a reliable source. And when they finally do, upon receiving them they continue to be distrusting by finding some minor fault with the cigars.)
Be careful not to burn your sweet little pinky's with this cigar, as you most likely will be smoking it to the nub.
