Rocky Patel Disciple
The Rocky Patel Disciple is the dark twin to the brand’s White Label—the two were released together and are meant to contrast each other. When you buy cigars online, you can compare these two premium cigars and enjoy the ways they interplay.
RP Tobacco Products
Rocky is no stranger to dark tobacco—the spicy, chocolatey Mexican wrapper of the 91-point A.L.R., the leathery leaf of the Vintage 1990, and the reliably earthy Costa Rican Maduro on the Olde World Reserve—these are all excellent examples of what this popular cigar company can do with mature tobacco.
We should caution you, though. Mexican San Andrés wrappers like these never lose their peppery kick all the way it seems. No matter how much fermentation they undergo, you always get a spicy note to wake you up and give you a little “Buenos Dias!” from our neighbor to the south. This is then matched with the other earthy and sweet notes that come from the Maduro cover leaf. When you buy cigars online, be prepared for a premium experience!
Inside, you’ll find high-quality Nicaraguan tobacco to round out the blend of one of the best cigars on the market. This adds richness and flavor to the smoke in a way that pretty much every company is trying to emulate these days. Nicaraguan tobacco is an absolute winner—there’s no doubt about that—and so the Disciple is using a reliable long-filler to build with.
The taste of this famous smoke when all leaves are blended is earthy, woody, and of course, peppery. It’s a tasty puff if you’re someone who likes cigars with a little personality. We’re not sure if Rocky was meaning to conjure up images of Jesus and his disciples with this stogie, but it’s probably inevitable. That said, you don’t have to be the least bit religious to enjoy this premium cigar.
There's a lot to love about RP cigars. The company has a long history of making high-quality smokes, and the blends always deliver flavor and complexity. The Disciples are no exception.
Buy Cigars Online
When you buy cigars online from RP, the Disciple is just one of your premium options. For instance, The White Label is the twin to the Rocky Patel Disciple, and it features a smooth Connecticut shade wrapper for people in search of milder smoke. It doesn’t turn things all the way down, however. There’s a Honduran binder leaf in there for a very nice layer of complexity. This is a premium cigar that’s perfect for any time of day, and it would be a great choice for beginners, too. It has a mellow flavor profile with notes of wood, cream, and nuts.
Check out the sizes before you buy, too. There’s one cigar shop favorite called the Bala that’s kind of interesting. It’s a perfecto-type shape in the sense that it tapers along its length. It’s 5.75 x 58, and the foot is supposed to be closed and pre-punched. If you’re in the mood for a cigar that’s made a bit differently, grab the Bala for some smoke experimentation.
It’s another delicious slice of darkness from Rocky P. Grab your lighters and enjoy!

What Are the Flavors Like?
The Disciple features notes of pepper and earth, with a hint of caramel sweetness.
What’s the Strength Level?
This is a medium to full-strength stogie.
Who Is the Disciple For?
Disciples are for people who like a little spice when they buy cigars online.
Will I Want To Smoke It to the Nub?
It’s not a guarantee—the spice is not something everyone loves.
What’s a Good Pairing With It?
This has us in the mood to throw back a white Russian, but a Mast Landing Gunner’s Daughter Milk Stout would be quite refreshing, too.
What’s the Best Time/Place To Burn the Disciple?
During the rare moment when you’re smoking while listening/learning something. Maybe you’ve got a podcast or documentary to go with it?
While one of Rocky’s recent dark blends, the Catch 22, did not set the crowd on fire, but we‘re hopeful the Disciple will perform better.
