Rocky Patel Royale Robusto Cigar Review – This 5×52 soft box pressed stick features a dark chocolate firmly packed wrapper with a slightly toothy oily velvet texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large triple cap and faint cocoa and pepper aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with mild-medium bodied flavors of a creamy texture with a sweet cream flavor followed by a hint of coffee and cocoa through the finish. The first third comes up to a medium body with the cream dialed down, the body flavors going to a smooth milk chocolate and the pepper coming up to match on the long finish. Burn is slow and the line nearly perfect. The 1/2 way point comes at just over 30 minutes shifting to a deep coffee dominating both the draw and finish carrying the rest of the flavors on the background with perfect construction. The last third shows no further changes.
