Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary Toro
Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary cigars are handmade in Nicaragua using a blend of Nicaraguan longfillers from a special farm in Esteli, rolled in the entubar method. Completing the blend are a Nicaraguan Jalapa binder and Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. With a full body and plenty of strength, Rocky Patel likened it to a Decade on steroids, adding that it has the elegance and balance, of the Decade, but with a richness, complexity, and spice that kind of puts it over the top. A must-try!
This to me is the Premier Cru version of the Olde World Reserve. The flavor profile is quite similar, but more refined and complex, and with a much improved wrapper. Upon lighting the flavors are of wood, sawdust, and leather. With time, additional flavors of toasted nuts, toasty wood, mushrooms and sweet wood enter the picture, while the leathery notes provide a unifying theme throughout. The ash is fantastic, and the burn excellent overall. My only beef is with the finish which is quite timid, marked by soft, leathery notes. This is an excellent medium cigar bordering on being outstanding.
best cigar i have ever smoked hands down! the variety of flavors and blend is the most pleasing to the palet
