Rocky Patel Xtreme Sumatra Toro
6 x 52 - Natural - Single
Rocky Patel Xtreme Sumatra joins the already desirable value brands of cigars from RP. Tobaccos from Nicaraguan and Honduras are bound in a Honduran and wrapped in delightful Ecuadorian Sumatra leaves. With a robust aroma you will find this to be complete dark horse.
I like these. Draw is just right, plenty of smoke, great taste and great aroma. They do require a lot of touch ups and have a problem with tunneling. Too distracting for me to smoke while driving. Best enjoyed when relaxing to maintain the lite.
My humidor is half filled with RP sticks. This thing tunneled straight down the core halfway through the cigar before I could even ash it. I clipped it in half hoping to save it but the burn continued to jet down the center. I hope to have better luck with the next, 0 for 1 so far.
I have purchased 5 boxes of Xtreme Toros. Maybe I got lucky, but they have all been good smokes. Maybe a handful were a tough draw, but the majority burned and smoked very well for me. I will continue to purchase these cigars. For the price they are a great daily smoke.
Loved the taste of these that came in a sampler so ordered a box of Toro's. Like sucking a tennis ball through a garden hose. Too bad. A couple that weren't too tight were fine, but a lot them I had to throw away. For the most part I love Rocky Patel's stogies.
