Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler Description
Come for the ratings, stay for the cigars. We’re detecting a common thread among many a lot of these Rocky Patel samplers—ratings. High ones. Lots of them. Everywhere.

Every time. Just imagine how incredible these premium smokes would look in your humidor.
The Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler contains one each of the following cigars.
Rocky Patel Decade
Released in 2007, the Decade remains one of Rocky’s best sellers. And it’s not difficult to see why, but we’ll get into that in a second. The Decade did take ten years of blending and testing before it was ready for the public, but that’s not where it gets its name. The Decade is a celebration of Patel’s tenth year in the cigar business.
Much of the inner workings of the Decade remain a mystery. All we know is the cigar’s core is made of “a secret blend featuring only the finest tobaccos in the world,” according to the Patel company. The details don’t matter too much when you’ve got a certified hit on your hands like the Rocky Patel Decade, though.
A Nicaraguan binder holds this top-secret blend close, and a stunning Sumatran wrapper that is oily and toothy covers everything up. The result is leather, pepper, nuts, and wood. The Decade is medium to full-bodied. Its finish is long and savory. Here is a rich experience from the Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler that’s hard to forget.
Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro
The 95-rated Sun Grown Maduro was ranked 2016’s #2 cigar of the year by Cigar Aficionado. This Maduro is a great addition to the Sun Grown line. With the Sun Grown Maduro, we’re dealing with a full-bodied cigar that gets its punch from a Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper and an aged blend of Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers. If you’re looking for a bold yet not overpowering smoke, then you need to check out the Sun Grown Maduro in the Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler. You’ll be on the receiving end of bittersweet chocolate, pepper, caramel, and cream.
Rocky Patel Royale
Next in the Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler is the 94-rated Royale. This cigar does something interesting. Its binder is constructed from both Connecticut broadleaf and Connecticut shade tobacco. The former is strong and thick, where the latter is thin and mild. The result is a beautiful complexity. An Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper covers it all up. Once this thing is burning, notes of spice, almond, leather, and earth gallop down the stick.
Rocky Patel Edge Habano
The Edge Habano has entered the building, and it appears to have brought its own flavor. Nice. This smoke is the first Nicaraguan puro in the Edge line and was highly anticipated. Longer-filler tobaccos from three top Nicaraguan growing regions—Jalapa, Esteli, and Condega—make up the cigar’s core. Next, the stick is dressed in an oily Nicaraguan Habano seed wrapper that is fermented and aged. Once lit, this full-bodied, smooth cigar delivers flavors of cedar and spice.
This is an excellent smoke, but only one comes in this sampler. Make sure to keep this one secret until you can get your hands on another to share. But not this one. This one is yours. You put in the long hours. You deserve it. Enjoy.
Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary
The 93-rated 15th Anniversary is a fantastic cigar. And why wouldn’t it be? Only the highest-quality Rocky cigars make it through quality control.
This smoke marks Rocky’s first 15 years in the cigar business. Years where he delighted smokers again and again. We should probably start a petition to have a new Patel Anniversary cigar released yearly.
Rocky manufactures many of his cigars in Honduras, but not the 15th Anniversary. Made in Nicaragua, this smoke’s Nicaraguan blood runs deep. A Nicaraguan binder and tobaccos are wrapped carefully in an Ecuadorian Habano leaf. You’re left with a medium to full-bodied cigar delivering notes of cocoa, nuts, spice, and espresso. This is the type of smoke that is so well built you buy two—one to rock and one to stock. Beautify your humidor today by adding the 15th Anniversary.
Please enjoy the Rocky Patel 93 Rated 5-Star Sampler at your leisure.
