Rocky Patel Vintage 2003
One of these is Rocky Patel, who uses Cameroon wrappers in his Vintage 2003 cigars.
As you might be able to tell, this leaf is well-aged. The crop was raised in 2003, after all! (Yes, really.) But don’t let that throw you off. These leaves have matured to create a fantastic set of flavors that are classic Cameroon: dry cedar, leather, walnuts, and a touch of creamy nougat on the finish. These are thanks in part to the Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers that make up the heart of the cigar.
The Vintage 2003 has gained some fairly respectable fans. It earned a 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado and was also named the #16 cigar of 2003. The judges praised its “sweet and sour character,” saying that Rocky Patel “keeps this classic leaf alive [and] relevant.”
This tobacco has been aging for over a decade to become the delight it is today. Bless your humidor and pick up a few if you’re in the mood for one of the better examples of a Cameroon-wrapped stick on the market.
