Rocky Patel Honduran Classic Robusto
5 1/2 x 54 - Maduro - Bundle of 25
Rocky Patel Honduran cigars are handmade with a blend of Honduran & Nicaraguan long-fillers BOX-PRESSED in attractive Corojo or Maduro wrappers that burn clean with a firm ash. These affordably-priced cigars are well-packed and have a nice heft to them, too. The smoke is robust and heady, yet not overpowering, and swarming with a well-balanced mix of creamy, earthy caramelized flavors. A very impressive, MUST-SMOKE cigar that will make a great addition to your collection. Order some now.
Bought some on a Christmas special was hooked immediately, quickly bought 26 more. Spicy, chocolate flavor right to the nub. Prefer it to some of my more expensive brands in my Humidor!!!!!!
I was so excited to try my first RP! What a let down. The flavor of this stick was great, with deep rich peppery notes that no other cigar has for me yet. However, the uneven burn and obscene tunneling left me relighting this over and over. After it went out a fourth time I cut it up to see the problem, and it tunneled up two inches. Still love the heavy/full flavor but not worth the anguish.
I received two of these as part of a sampler. Smoked the first one after a week; it tunneled so badly I ended up tossing it. Smoked the second one tonight figuring that over a month in the humidor would have helped it. Nope, same problems - it needs constant relighting or it either tunnels or goes out completely. The flavor is decent, but due to the construction issues I will buy no more of these. I've had better made cigars at half the cost. I expect better from a Rocky Patel.
