Rocky Patel 1961 Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 stick features a dark chocolate colored wrapper with a firm dry toothy feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and faint hay aroma. First light reveals a tight draw but great smoke output showing medium bodied flavors of a slight sweet earth and wood, with a heavy oily wood and spice finish. The first third opens with a slightly sweet earth followed by a rough pepper and spice lingering through the finish. The ash hold son cleanly to the 1/2 way point, at which flavors remain pretty consistent, just dropping most of the pepper and spice shifting to a very smooth creamy texture all the way through, holding the core of the medium bodied earth. Ending at 50 minutes the stick burned quickly but very well with perfect performance, staying consistent through the last third. Thank you very much to viewer ‘goldendd’ for sending this in for review, I really appreciate it!
