Patel Bros. Next Generation Robusto Cigar Review
EDIT: I gave credit to the wrong person, my sincere apologies! I know I have a couple cigars here from someone but I didn’t have a name note with them and this was apparently one of them! Would the sender please contact me to confirm what they sent in so I can correct things?
This 5×50 stick features a dark chocolate firm and smooth wrapper with small veins and stretch marks along the seams, a bit of a rough looking triple cap and a mild barnyard and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful thick rich smoke producing medium bodied flavors of super slick and creamy textured savory meat and earth, with a touch of pepper adding to the long finish. The first third brings body up to medium-full, plenty of rich thick smoke and flavors of a mix between the savoriness, deep earth and a citrus twang. The finish is much the same adding a pepper zing on the last bits as it fades away. 35 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, flavors shift slightly dropping the citrus and replacing it with a syrupy sweetness that keeps building and takes over the finish. Construction is flawless. Ending at 55 minutes flavors in the last third were unchanged to the last inch where it got very hot and flavors washed out to a char taste and I ended it.
