Default Cu-Avana Punisher... It tastes like burning

I dont know if anyone has tried these, but i fired one up today that i got in a sampler. This cigar is interesting to say the least. It tastes like the exact opposite of a sweetened tip cigar. The minute i put the cigar in my mouth and lit it up my lips started burning and went numb. This lasted for about half of the cigar. The taste of the cigar itself wasnt bad but i couldnt get past the fact that my lips felt like they had been sprayed with pepper spray.It would seem they definitly coated the tip in something as a gimic maybe i dont know but i dont think i would buy many more of these. Very interesting just to try though.

Quick reading on the intewwebz leads me to believe the wrapper is infused with a chili of some sort. Maybe just capsaicin for the heat?

Lol, I guess that is why it's called the Punisher! Sound like a very interesting cigar. I might have to give it a try sometime.

Sounds nasty to me. I gave the regular intenso's and don't care for them either. Sounds like something to avoid.

Same thing happened to me. 10 seconds after I put it in my mouth, my lips started to burn. Knowing nothing about this cigar, I thought that there must be chemicals on the wrapper. I put it out instantly and my lips continued to burn for 5 more minutes. I felt punished to say the least...

I picked up some Intensos off cbid for just over $2 a pop. I wouldn't pay CIs regular prices, but I got my money's worth. Good, strong earthy flavors with a hefty spice and light sweetness on the finish. No real development and not much complexity, but a good solid smoke otherwise.

I had planned on trying the Punisher, but I'm with the majority here. Sounds like a gimmick, so I'll pass.
