Rocky Patel Vintage Connecticut 1999 Petite Corona
4 1/2 x 44 - Natural - Single
Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 cigars are the latest edition to this marvelous series that's become a hit with cigar smokers 'round the world. Each Rocky Patel Vintage Connecticut 1999 Petite Corona cigar has a perfectly-balanced blend of Dominican & Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos - all aged 7 years - highlighted by a mild, 1999-vintage Connecticut wrapper. The cigars are aged 120 days after rolling, and unlike the Rocky Patel Vintage '90 & '92, are NOT box-pressed. A sensationally smooth, toasty, medium-bodied cigar that hits on all cylinders.
I really like the VIntage 99 petite corona. It is the perfect size for a lunch time smoke. These last me about 45 minutes. Generally a good draw, pretty consistent, nice creamy tast.
This is a great tasting cigar. Smooth and creamy from start to finish. I am a fan of the petite corona size but so far 2 out of three have had construction issues. One had a soft-spot/void under the first band and the other had a tight draw. Even with these issues this is a great cigar. I'll be trying the robusto size in hopes of eliminating some of the burn issues. My rating is south of 90 only because of construction issues.
Picked up a box cheap at auction,my first Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 was a robusto and was a very good cigar. The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Petite Corona is too small, so far all but one has had burn issues. The smoke is too hot because of the size,and just when it is starting to taste good its over. From now on nothing smaller than a robusto.
