Rocky Patel Factory Selects R80 cigars are a perfect offering for those who like tons of flavor with a smooth finish. Each cigar is blended using 5-year-aged Nicaraguan & Honduran ligero tobaccos to provide copious amounts of flavor, balanced out by an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper to smooth out the smoke and add a dimension of creaminess. Truly a masterpiece that we heavily discounted so you don't have to burn a hole in your pocket to get these premiums sticks. Pick yours up now!
Very consistent creamy smoke from beginning to end. Similar to the Edge Lite, which is one of my favorites,but doesn t smoke as dry as the Lite. Wrapper has a nice taste on lips, doesn t have even a hint of bitterness. Draw was a tiny bit stiffer than Edge, but still very easy draw with plenty of smoke. This is one that I will always have in the humidors. Absolutely nothing separates these from boxed Rocky s except the color is not within tolerances, color and burn was very consistent, no veins or spots.00
Bearing in mind these are factory selects and priced accordingly. I ve had much better smokes from the Oliva selects. If I was broke and could not afford a better made cigar then these would be acceptable. Appearance is nice and taste is okay, but I consistently run into bad burns and hard draws with this cigar. Not a big deal considering the price. I may try them again in the future, but as the title states - you get what you pay for.00
