Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro Robusto Description
This Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro Robusto cigar is made in Nicaragua. Outside, you'll find a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Inside, the binder is Nicaraguan, and the filler is Nicaraguan. This is a Robusto cigar with a length of 5.00 and a ring gauge of 50.
By far my favorite Rocky Patel Cigar and probably my favorite cigar of all times (although I have not had the distinct pleasure of an Opus X Cigar, not yet at least). This is a solid medium cigar but the first inch will fool you since it is quite mild. But it builds nicely and quickly. A very flavorful cigar on the palate. A real tobacco aroma, the aroma that cigars are supposed to have. The ash is firm. Once your at the last 2 inches of this thing you are a little disappointed because you know soon it will be over. I have smoked these things to the last 1/2 inch and been begging for more. This is what I suppose good blended cigars are supposed to be like. Building from mild to an amazing medium crescendo. I do not like flavorful cigars that are harsh in the beginning because they seem to ruin my palate and I cant enjoy the flavor. But Rocky did a great job here by making this stick build and build and build. Like all Rocky Patels Cigars the wrapper, draw, and consistency of these sticks are top notch. I have actually tried some of the seconds of this particular stick and they are amazingly good, although they are not box pressed, labeled, nor do they have the look that a first rate Rocky does, this guy must be particular about his smokes. I highly recommend this smoke to everyone.
Quite the enjoyable cigar, especially in the Toro. First had a couple of Petite Coronas from samplers, but the Toro was a much better way to go. A nice sweet edge throughout most of the stick, with a pleasant spiciness. Definitely one of the best offerings from RP, of which there are many.
This is absolutely one of my top three favorite Cigars. The burn, draw and flavor are great! Highly Recommended
