Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon Churchill
Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 cigars are the latest addition to the highly-rated 1990, 1992 & 1999 Vintage series. They boast a perfectly-aged Cameroon wrapper deftly rolled around an 8-year-aged Nicaraguan-Dominican core. This medium-bodied cigar teems with rich, complex flavors; moreover, the Cameroon wrapper augments the smoke with a lingering sweet spice that stimulates the palate, plus hints of cedar, dark chocolate, and espresso on a nutty finish. Another masterpiece from R.P.! Order yours now.
This cigar was very well constructed & has a slightly chocolate, earthy scent with a nice tobacco sweetness at the foot. This is a medium bodied cigar with a mild/medium strength. The draw was loose, even for a Rocky, but this cigar burned cool all the way down to about an inch. The burn wasn't quite perfect but didn't require any touching up at all & the light gray ash stacked up nicely in thirds. Each draw produced quite a bit of smoke with flavors like creamy caramel, leather, chocolate & spice throughout the smoke. The finish leaves a spice on the tongue but it's never overpowering. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these excellent smokes.
