Rocky Patel Cuban Blend Toro Natural Corojo cigars are handcrafted with a potent, long-aged blend of Honduran Ligero rolled in luscious Corojo wrappers. The smoke is bold, spicy, complex, and exceptionally smooth with a heady aroma. A great buy if you love full-bodied cigars with a Cuban-like taste.

I had my first Cuban Blend Rocky Patel out of the sampler I recently bought from Famous Smoke. I allowed the stick to rest in the humidor for about two weeks before trying to smoke it. Construction was firm and a bit on the tight side while still being easy enough to draw without too much effort. The wrapper had one small defect: small ripped hole half the size of a pencil eraser about a third of the way down, but the wrapper was good looking and well-rolled nonetheless. Pre-light was mild and similar to flavor when lit. Flavor is lightly sweet with a solid tobacco core that was smooth and consistent from start to finish with medium strength and light to medium body. Burn has been a bit uneven with four touch ups needed even with several puffs a minute but the cigar remained cool enough to retain the flavor down to the nub. The ash was firm and grayish with no flaking. My opinion: The Cuban Blend is a nice cigar in flavor if you enjoy this type of taste and overlook the slight burn issues. While not as pungent and flavorful as my vintage 1990s or 2003 Cameroon favorites, the consistent flavor was much better than many other sticks at a similar price point and I plan to leave my other stick from the sampler to rest longer which should help with the burn.While I will keep to my favorites when buying boxes I have enjoyed the stick being in the sampler and may buy again if the price is right. Time in the humidor will improve this stick and I would rate it better than some of the Cohiba Red Dots I have smoked for smoothness and overall quality of flavor.less

Nice tasting cigar but more than half the box was difficult to smoke,very tough draw. Had to toss more than a dozen because it's not enjoyable if I have to struggle to smoke them.less

An interesting name - Cuban Blend - not really relfective of it's namesake, never-the-less, a very nice smoke - on the sweet side from start to about the middle and then it spices up. I enjoyed it to the nub - good draw all the way. The appearance was rustic - big veins, some construction mishaps - not as pretty as some of the other RP lines. All that said, I'll have another please...less

I just can't enough good stuff about about the RP Cuban Blend Corojo. I smoke the petit belicosos, robustos and the toros. The are always consistently excellent. I usually watch the Cigar Monster and when one of the 3 go on sale I stock up. The box of toros I'm smoking now have been aged for over a year in my locker at the local humidor. They are excellent! To give you an idea of my tastes, I like Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic, 601 Red, Green and the Black, as well as RP Olde World Reserve Corojos. You have got to try these excellent, affordable cigars.less
