Rocky Patel Evolution Torpedo
6 1/2 x 52 - Maduro - Single
Evolution by Rocky Patel cigars are a revolution in flavor. This full-bodied blend has a Nicaraguan longfiller core box-pressed in Ecuadorian Sumatra Claro or Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrappers. The smoke is earthy, creamy, and full-flavored, underscored by notes of sweet tobacco. If you're a fan of Rocky's luxury editions and similar upmarket cigars, you'll be as impressed by the price as you will by the richness and complexity of this affordable selection.

I bought two boxes because there was a special deal. First, the cigars were square-shaped, and not round. The burn was uneven and nearly 100% of them in both boxes burned - from first one out of the box to the last. Too much maintenance to enjoy. A handful also had extremely hard draw. I thought Rocky Patel was supposed to be a reputable brand with fairly high quality and standards. Major disappointment with this purchase - I probably will stay away from this brand from now.
I bought one of these from a local shop just to try it and wow was I impressed! It starts with a spicy start,but as it burns it turns in to a well rounded, medium body smoke that left a pleasant almost leathery taste. This cigar was one I couldn't put down! The burn was consistent throughout and the taste was spectacular! If you've never had a Rocky or even have for that matter, you should add this to your humidor.
