Rocky Patel Rosado Toro
6 x 50 - Rosado - Single
Hearty, extra-long-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos, balanced by a lighter Dominican filler and binder, rolled meticulously in blushing Rosado wrapper leaves grown under Ecuador's naturally cloud-filtered sunlight. The smoke is medium bodied, very smooth, complex, and delicately spicy with a sweet aroma.
Expected more. Smoked two hoping the second was better. Tasted too much like a cigarett. Maybey just a bad batch?
I love Rocky's smokes....well most of them. Unfortunately, the Rosado Toro's I've had have all been pretty much flavorless. The burn, construction and appearance are all fantastic and what I would expect from a Rocky cigar. The taste, however, was almost non-existent. I would personally steer clear of these and go with the Cuban Blend. The Rosado's fell completely flat with their taste.
A really gorgeous cigar. I love the rosado wrapper. Well constructed with the exception of a tough draw at the beginning, (I nearly caved my head in on the first 1/4, but these are handrolls). A great medium flavor that develops a progressively complex flavor the further you go (A nice peppery flavor at the end). Get ready to burn your fingers on this one!
