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!
