"((( A Second Chance )))"
After reviewing The Rocky Patel Petit Corona back in September of 2010, I'm giving this one a recheck, now that it had time to rest in the humidor :::
This corona has a nice chocolate brown wrapper, with a even, flat cap. The cigar is medium in body. The burn is clean and even, although the the ash is somewhat loose. Throughout the first half of the smoke, hints for oak, and and nutmeg were present in the nose and on the pallet. Throughout the second half of the burn, aromas of nutmeg were replaced with sharp notes of black pepper, and ceder, in the nose. For a small cigar, this petit corona, emanates large amounts of gray smoke. The burn time on this cigar is approximately 60 minutes.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd now rate this corona 7

"((( What's all the hype about ? )))"
The Rocky Patel Patit Corona, is a full bodied cigar, with a dark brown, smooth wrapper, that burns with a tight draw, and a gray, and somewhat loose ash. Upon lighting the cigar, the nose is instantly flooded with strong hints of wood, and strong spice. Though out the burn, the cigar seems to be too overpowering, and uncomfortable to smoke. This Corona leaves a strong bitter aftertaste in the mouth. The approximate burn time is 50 minutes. The Rocky Patit Corona, could possibly benefit from time spent resting the humidor. I'll rate this cigar a second time in the near future.
On a scale of' 1 to 10 I'd rate this cigar 4.
Note--Opinion-- This cigar is not worth it's hefty price tag. .
