Rocky Patel Signature Series Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 cigar features a very dark chocolate firm wrapper with slight tooth, a rock hard feel, triple cap, minimal veins, tight seams and a damp musty cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, medium-full bodied flavors of a slightly sweet peppery earth with a zingy oily long finish. The first third moves through in 20 minutes with no flavor changes, just nice rich thick smoke. The ash is nice and tight while the burn is a little off needing a minor correction. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, the ash had dropped off after the first third, and flavors were changed slightly adding a nice milk chocolate flavor to the end of the draw through the finish, mixing well with the pepper. Ending at 55 minutes the last third showed no further changes, just holding the great rich flavors till the nub, while the burn evened out completely. Thank you very much to viewer Cesar for sending this in!

    That’s not the Vudu, it’s the Famous signature series by Rocky Patel. The Vudu has a black band.

    • Oh crap on a stick! Thanks for catching that. I have both here – I pulled this, saw the big V and mixed them up without even thinking. Yea for stupid similar bands.

      Fixed!

        Well, now that that’s cleared up, have you tried the Vudu? If so, how do they compare, or are you saving that for another review? 😉

  • JJO

    Yeah, this is the Signature Series. They’re apparently both Famous exclusives. Sounds pretty good anyway.

    Famous has so many house blends that I’d like to try, but someone in management there has made the conscious decision that Corona/ Lonsdale smokers don’t matter. Everything starts at 50 ring guage and goes up from there.

    Thanks Bryan… great review and RP are always good cigars… 🙂

    yup, the Vudu have the dark unreadable band. lol. That particular one is the “Famous Signature” by Rocky Patel.
