I read about the Rocky Patel Fifty-Five in Cigar Aficionado on a flight from NY to Atlanta. Upon visiting one of my favorite cigar shops in Alpharetta, I saw the Fifty-Five and thought I’d try it. While pricey, the store owner said it was the best smoke he’s had in a long time. After just a few minutes, I agreed! It took 1.5 hours to smoke and the cigar was consistent from the beginning to end! The draw was smooth and the taste bold but not strong. I immediately went online to Famous Smoke and ordered a box and am enjoying them as much as the first. Recommend with Bourbon or fine Scotch although a big Cabernet is probably good too. These are on the expensive side but try them and I’m sure, like me, you will agree the price is justified!
