Rocky Patel Vintage Connecticut 1999 Churchill Cigar Review

This 7×48 cigar features a firm, very oily light tan wrapper with a bit of tooth and a very contrasty look. It’s almost like the peaks of the wrapper have been polished for effect. It has minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and a mild tobacco aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with good smoke output giving medium bodied flavors of a deep and slightly musty, creamy textured earth and tobacco with a long oily finish. The first third burns slowly with a perfect razor sharp line, loosening the draw slightly to a prefect resistance. Flavors are a very smooth oily creamy wood, with a long finish of the same. The 2nd third hits the 1/2 way point 55 minutes in, dropping the ash after the first couple inches. Flavors remain exactly the same, giving a very consistent experience. Ending at 1:35 the last third adds a syrupy sweetness to the mix, giving a more substantial body to the woodiness taking it up to medium-full, also increasing smoke output slightly. Thank you very much to Thomas Long for sending this in for review!

    Hey Brian,

    Good review as always. Now for hard question what is your favorite brand? Now knowing I couldnt answer that question myself I’d like to ask your favorite 5 or even 3 if possible? Just wondering if any cigat brands held a special place in your heart and why?

    Thanks

    Love this stick, one of my favorite Rocky Patels and favorite Connecticuts. I agree with the review it has much more body and stength than you’d expect from a connecticut. I always try to have a few of these in on of my humidors.

    Great review. I had one of these early today with a cup of coffee. I found it a little dry but i paired well with the coffee. This is actually one of my favorite Rockys.

    A little too plain for my tastes. For me it was all about the sweetness. Reminded me of sugar cane, which is fine but I want some depth like coffee or chocolate. I agree with the creaminess but I prefer the 1990 quite a bit more
