Rocky Patel Decade Robusto Cigar Review

Posted on Monday, March 30, 2009 in Cigar Reviews

This was a very nice medium bodied, woody, earthy 5×50 smoke with a slightly sweet dried fruit note. Very smooth and cool, the smoke was rich and thick. It has a perfect draw and burn from beginning to end. Available as a cosmetic factory second called X-Out Liga “D”.

    You’ve said before that the robusto is the best in this. I now agree. I have had problems before with the larger sizes burning weird or going out. Smoked a robusto today, had no issues.

    This is one of my favorites. To bad I can’t afford to have them as much as I’d like. When I do get them they sit for quite a while in the humi. Only pull em out when I know I’ll have an hour of complete relaxation with no interruptions. The rocky private cellar is also a new fav. Love to see a review on that one as well.

    Having this one tonight that I scored from my winnings of cigar lottery 12. :) Very nice. My first RP and I am stocked to try some more.

    My girlfriend loves these,I believe it’s because of the easy draw.

    I smoked my 1st Rocky last nite, this Decade that came in the Delicious Dozen from CI. Wat a let down. A couple problems right from the start. Using a CC Perfect Cutter taking 1 snip the cap fell apart. There was several small pieces that came undone, I tried to lick them in place but after about an inch in they wouldnt stick and was goofing up the draw so I removed them. Actually it looked as though the cap was repaired with several small pieces. After getting down to the binder the draw was better and the taste was nice. Then bout the 1st band point it started going out, many times, I lost track of how many times I had to relight it. Performance was bad, taste was good. Theres still 2 more of these in the sampler so Im hoping this was just a bad example and will hold my finale judgment.

      The 2nd Decade Ive smoked burned ok, only had to relight it once. Cap was fine.

    I think this stick is best in the Tubo. Not fond of the pressed. Sure is tasty though.
