Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon
The man knew what he had.
The story goes, it took around 120 different tries to get the blend just right. Of course, it was well worth it. If a cigar company could guarantee this level of success, they’d happily put together hundreds of test cigars just to get here. But you have to catch a little lightning in a bottle, at the end of the day.
The Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon cigar is another version of the classic. Instead of the Sumatra wrapper, this one features something equally exotic: a Cameroon cover leaf. Known for fragrant woody flavors, Cameroon tobacco typically adds a complex and unusual dimension to the flavor profile of a cigar. Here, it combines with Nicaraguan tobacco to produce smoke described by Rocky Patel as “elegant and well-balanced, starting off with sweet hickory notes, soft spice, and caramel.” RP also adds that “as the cigar progresses, coffee and roasted nuts enter the equation before a clean and flavorful finish.”
The 90 rating doesn’t lie – the Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon cigar is a worthy blend to carry the name.
As time has passed by, Rocky Patel has had occasion to make cigars for the 15th and 20th anniversaries of the company, and they’ve been quite nice in their own right. But the OG will always be the Decade until something truly stellar comes along to unseat it and become the new jewel in the crown of the RP empire.
