Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro cigars are a full-bodied, no-holds-barred take on Rocky's critically-acclaimed Sun Grown selection for fans of dark, earthy, and spicy cigars. Offered in 4 sizes, including a 5 x 50 robusto, named Cigar Aficionado's 2016 #2 cigar of the year. The core consists of robust Nicaraguan long-fillers and a savory double binder neatly rolled in a toothy, dark-chocolate hued Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Expect a wallop of zesty flavors right out of the gate for a balanced, complex, and memorable smoke with a long, peppery finish. In a word: WOW!

The Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Toro is better than any cigar twice its price.
Best Flavor, Best Burn, Best Cigar
Wonderful Robusto with consistent burn, excellent draw and true maduro taste.
Perhaps the best maduro I’ve ever smoked down to the nub; Robusto is too short, gotta do the Toro
I like these as a strong afternoon cigar. Dark and meaty, they seem pretty consistent in the flavor and construction. Every one has a good draw if slightly wonky burn sometimes. Nothing egregious. A pretty safe bet.
I am new to premium cigars and this was the second cigar I had smoked. The first time I smoked the RP Sun Grown was overwhelming and not good flyer . The second one I smoked was after a few other cigars, completely different experience. I am still learning the nomenclature of the cigar world so my wording is just that. The Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro is now one of my top two favorites. Great flavor, stayed lit OK had to relight a few times because of how I smoked, slowly , the flavor taste was amazing it coated the roof of my mouth with rich flavor, the flavor stayed most of the day. The smoke aroma ?? was pleasant. That is how I judge a cigar, no ash or appearance just flavor and enjoyment. This cigar has great flavor, is total enjoyment and is a pleasure to smoke. Made me happy......
This is probably one of the worst 6x60 cigars I ve had. It has a poor draw that is just a little less than tight and each puff delivers disappointingly little smoke. I have to do triple or quadruple puffs to get flavors. When I get those it tastes mostly of candy, chocolate and caramel. It also has a tendency to go off quickly requiring almost a puff every 10 seconds to remain lit, which makes it hard to keep the cigar actually cool. Just disappointing. Too much hassle, not enough flavor. Not what I expect from Rocky Patel.
