The Rocky Patel Nicaraguan is a great cigar the one I received had a nice beautiful flawless wrapper the burn was even and it had a nice smooth draw and the cigar had nice aromas and flavors there was cedar, cinnamon, citrus, cream, hay, leather and pepper and into the second to third quarter of the cigar the aroma and flavors started to blend together a create a nice sweet apple pie like aroma and flavor towards the end of the cigar.
Although this cigar has a nice looking wrapper and the taste is average, I m very disappointed in the burn. Because if you put this cigar down longer than a minute it goes out. Furthermore the burn is uneven to the point that I just give up and throw the unused portion away. The center will usually will burn out first, or it burns at approximately a 60 degree angle leaving a nasty looking and messy object in your hand. I shared with my brother, and he did not like it either. Perhaps a bad box? I don t know, but I will not order this cigar again.
