Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Sixty
6 x 60 - Maduro - Box of 20
Vintage By Rocky Patel 1990 Sixty cigars offer a voluptuous, round-shaped cigar handmade with a tantalizing blend of 5-yr-aged Dominican & Nicaraguan fillers rolled in a 12 yr-aged Maduro wrapper. The smoke is full-flavored, creamy, perfectly-balanced, and teeming with rich, sweet tobacco flavor.
This cigar will forever be in my heart as well as my humidor. RP Vintage 1990 cigars are my favorite.
This Sixty finished off my tour of Rocky's vintage sticks and, as I anticipated, was the best of them all. Not just the 1990, but the 1992 and for arguements sake, the 1999. (can't really compare them) This cannon smokes a whole lot smoother than it's smaller counterparts and burns perfectly as long as you don't try to smoke it too fast. Pair it with a quality cup of coffee and prepare yourself for an hour of relaxation. The only thing that didn't tickle me was that it only lasted about an hour. I probably could have given it a little box time to tighten it up...so my bad. As far a flavors, there's a whole kaleidoscope of deep dark roasted stuff going on to keep you interested right down to the nub. One of my absolute favorites.
Really thought this would be great, but oh well. Absolutely no flavor. Compare to a Nat Sherman Banker Maduro. Tasted like a machine made cigar. Completely uneventful. End cap fell off. Uneven burn. Usually a cigar has different characteristics throughout the smoke. Same soapy flavor all the way through. Veiny, coarse wrapper with visible stem parts and holes no less. No wonder they sell so many factory seconds.
