Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon
Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican
The wrapper on this Rocky smoke is a chocolate shade of brown with a triple cap and double banded. The draw after I clipped the cap off was perfect with a sweet taste off the cold draw. The aroma off the cold wrapper is of sweet hay and feels pretty packed from head to foot.
Lighting up this stick I am met with a slight pepper which dies out after a quarter inch or so. After the pepper dies I start to pick of earthiness and a sweetness that I can’t quite put my finger on yet.
The burn on the cigar has been perfect. The burn line has been sharp and burning slow. The ash is holding on strong but can be a little flakey around the edges. The flavors of earth and that sweetness are still there with notes of wood starting to kick in as I reach the halfway point.
The flavor profile stayed the same except for the pepper kicked up a notch here on the home stretch. The burn needed no touch ups throughout my experience.
The four I smoked for this review were all pretty consistent between the flavor profile and construction. I would definitely pick a few more of these up. They were well worth the money spent on them. So go out there and give em a try, don’t take my word for it.
Keep em burnin’
