Rocky Patel used to be one of those brands that we smokers loved but reviewers snubbed. Not anymore. Now, Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 list regularly includes the highest rated Rocky Patel cigars of the year.
Predictably, the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars aren't necessarily our standbys. But they are some of the best sticks RP produces. When you want to treat yourself or celebrate a special occasion, the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars will fit the bill nicely.
The Rocky Patel Sungrown Maduro isn't just one of the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars. It's the highest-ranked of all time! It snagged the #2 Cigar of the Year spot on Cigar Aficionado’s rankings in 2016 with a stunning 95 rating. A gnarly Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper adds bittersweet chocolate and bold pepper to the earthy spice of the Nicaraguan long-fillers. It's the strongest of all the highest rated Rocky Patel cigars and is a truly special occasion stick.
Tied with the Sungrown for the top spot, the Decade Torpedo is the most accessible and reliable of all highest rated Rocky Patel cigars. The draw is spot-on and the flavors comprise that winning Decade formula that we all know and love: creamy roasted nuts, sweet black cherry, and earthy cocoa. It’s one of the best RP sticks of all time as well as one of the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars ever.
Perhaps the most exclusive RP cigar yet, the A.L.R. Second Edition Toro is one of the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars and a true indulgence for fans of the brand looking for an ultra-premium from their favorite blender. The blend of aged San Andrés wrapper and small-batch Nicaraguan long-fillers are rolled together then aged for two years to mature and develop the complex palate of sweet malty chocolate, toasty vanilla, dark fruit, and toasted wood with hints of coconut. It’s probably the most luxurious of the highest-rated Rocky Patel cigars.
