Rocky Patel is one of the leading cigar makers in
the world today and perhaps no other cigar represents the brand better than the
Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Robusto. This luxurious stick is as complex and as
balanced as they come, featuring an amazing blend of truly delectable tobaccos.
The 5 ½” x 50 Robusto is created with a thick core
of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. A Nicaraguan
binder and lush 12 year aged Honduran Broadleaf wrapper complete the 55 minute
or so smoke. Box-pressing is utilized to enhance the qualities of the fine
tobaccos and will deliver one heck of a great ride!
The sultry experience begins with rich coffee,
earth and wood flavors that flow easily through the expertly crafted stick.
Some pepper and spice notes lurk underneath the medium-bodied character while a
sweet caramel nuance floats gloriously along. The Vintage 1990 Robusto finishes
grandly with a smooth and balanced finale.
This is one of the truly great smokes available
today and so belongs in every enthusiast’s rotation. Tasty and filling, the
Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Robusto is one you will want to revisit again and
again. Enjoy with a fine 10 year aged Bual Madeira for a delightful escape.
