Rocky Patel Royal Vintage Robusto Cigar Review

This 5.5×50 semi-box pressed stick offers a medium tan wrapper with a dry paper texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, an even spongy give and faint nut and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a loose draw, typical of RP, good smoke output but it’s very light and airy. Medium bodied flavors of a bitter oily tobacco with a long finish dominate. The first third transitions to an oily, creamy nut with a solid medium body and long finish of the same. Burn is perfect, ash is tight and white. 20 minutes in at the start of the 2nd third flavors ramp up to medium-full body with a very rich and creamy caramel, with an oily pepper and spice finish. Ending 50 minutes in, the last third changed to a big creamy nut flavor keeping the pepper and spicy oily finish but dropping the caramel. Thank you very much to viewer Owen Johnson for generously sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!
