This cigar is one of Rocky Patel’s very best – it’s fitting that he called it the “Royale.” In a world of cigars with outrageously ostentatious names that the actual smoke can’t even touch, it’s so satisfying to get one that finally delivers all the way. Forget “King Louis the XXL Luxurio Millennium Aristocrat” blend, this is a totally legit Rocky Patel Royale cigar.
It’s not just us saying so, of course. This beautiful rolled tobacco masterpiece earned a stellar 94 rating from Cigar Aficionado and was named the #5 cigar on the Top 25 Cigars List of 2014!
Bow down, bitches.
Outside, there’s a roasted pecan brown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Inside, things get more inventive with a classic Rocky Patel double binder featuring Connecticut Broadleaf and Connecticut Shade wrappers. If you’re one of those guys who, when asked if you prefer blondes or brunettes simply answers, “yes!” then this is the cigar for you. Why choose between Connecticut leaves when you can enjoy the mixture of both? Just like blondes and brunettes, they’re so much more fun together! If we had to guess, the binders were probably chosen in combination to temper each other and strike an interesting flavor balance.
Inside those, you’ll get a nice spicy Nicaraguan filler blend that brings rich chocolate flavor that melts across your tongue and will have you wondering just how these chart-topping smokes really are made. It just seems that the smoking experience is totally different from other cigars – smokes like these are simply on another level.
Light up and drift away. There’s plenty of pulls left to come.
