Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate very soft oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, trple cap, even slightly spongy pack and rich peppery floral aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw with great smoke output showing thich oily flavors of a smooth tobacco and an earthy nuttiness through the finish. The first third grows a fair complexity reminding me of the decade but with more zing and pepper especially through the long smooth finish. There’s a nice bit of peppery chocolate and creamy textured nuts on the draw, body is at medium and construction is perfect. 25 minutes in the half way point comes with no flavor changes, keeping the perfect construction dropping ash in small barely 1″ chunks. Ending at 55 minutes the last third showed no changes just keeping the same smooth complexity all the way down. Thank you very much to viewer Chris McDavid for sending this in for review, I really appreciate it!
