Rocky Patel Fifteenth Anniversary Robusto Review
Rocky Patel Fifteenth Anniversary Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Habano Ecuador, Binder - Jalapa, Filler - Nicaraguan. Medium - Full bodied.
Initial taste of toasty bread which then became a toasty coffee flavor with cinnamon and an underlying spice.
Second third of the cigar had a very enjoyable vanilla sweetness emerging along with the coffee flavor, spice and hints of cinnamon. Very tasty.
The last third of the cigar had the coffee flavor but now it is more of a dark coffee taste, along with a toasty sweet vanilla. Spice picks up now and there are notes of cinnamon. Very well balanced. Very enjoyable long finish of sweet creamy coffee and spice.
Construction and burn were absolutely perfect - beautiful brown wrapper without any veins and a razor sharp burn that produced a nice light gray ash that held on for 2 inches before falling. Draw was excellent as well.
This is a very good cigar that I thoroughly enjoyed. It had excellent balance and very enjoyable flavors. MSRP for this vitola is $9.50. Rocky has another winner with this cigar - definite recommend to try.
