These pricey-looking Evolution by Rocky Patel Torpedo Maduro cigars are one of the best buys in the store. Priced for savings, the cigars are box-pressed in a rich-tasting, extra-dark Sumatra oscuro wrapper that adds a note of sweetness to the spicy Nicaraguan tobaccos. Order this superb value now!
I bought one of these from a local shop just to try it and wow was I impressed! It starts with a spicy start,but as it burns it turns in to a well rounded, medium body smoke that left a pleasant almost leathery taste. This cigar was one I couldn't put down! The burn was consistent throughout and the taste was spectacular! If you've never had a Rocky or even have for that matter, you should add this to your humidor.
I bought two boxes because there was a special deal. First, the cigars were square-shaped, and not round. The burn was uneven and nearly 100% of them in both boxes burned - from first one out of the box to the last. Too much maintenance to enjoy. A handful also had extremely hard draw. I thought Rocky Patel was supposed to be a reputable brand with fairly high quality and standards. Major disappointment with this purchase - I probably will stay away from this brand from now.
