Hearty, extra-long-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos, balanced by a lighter Dominican filler and binder, rolled meticulously in blushing Rosado wrapper leaves grown under Ecuador's naturally cloud-filtered sunlight. The smoke is medium bodied, very smooth, complex, and delicately spicy with a sweet aroma.
I bought a sampler of Rocky Patels after buying a couple of Edge Toro's at a local tobacconist. For some reason, I saved the Rosados until last...boy was I glad I did. The Edge is a great smoke, a little on the heavy side but great. The Rosado is just perfect. There is enough body there to let you know you're smoking a cigar, but not overwhelm you. There is plenty of smoke and a great draw. The cigar's construction is second to none.I highly recommend this cigar to anyone who enjoys a well balanced smoke. It is similar to the AVO #2 and Perdomo Champagne Toros with a bit more complex flavor. All three have a great draw and are excellent smokes, the Rosado wins the tiebreak on price.
A really gorgeous cigar. I love the rosado wrapper. Well constructed with the exception of a tough draw at the beginning, (I nearly caved my head in on the first 1/4, but these are handrolls). A great medium flavor that develops a progressively complex flavor the further you go (A nice peppery flavor at the end). Get ready to burn your fingers on this one!
When you first remove this beauty from it's wrapper, run the length under your nose and enjoy the bouquet of this puppy!! You'll know you are in for a treat! From the first toasting of the foot, to the "finger burning" end, you will enjoy this smoke, as I sure have on the 5 I've burned so far! Even burn, holds the ash an incredibly long time and the flavor is top notch and smooth! Not harsh at all, even during the last inch! Highly recommend if you want a medium bodied treat! I'm working my way thru the Rocky line, and I'm impressed by all so far, especially the "Rosado"~~
I received 4 of these in 2 best of rocky Patel samplers. I was really excited about them and assumed I would love them based on the description. With my fist one, I was very disappointed. It tasted harsh, peppery and just generally kinda bad. I decided to let the remaining 3 sit in my humidor for a while. I pulled one out to go golfing the other day and what a difference. I loved it so much that I had another as soon as I got home. Great taste, burn, appearance and draw. The round piece of wrapper did fall off of one when I used my punch, but the construction on the other 2 was flawless. I have a box sitting in my cart right now. My advice is to let these sit for a little after you get them, like I said I hated the first one and after a little rest I m pretty sure this is one of my favorites. I plan on trying one right out of them mail when I get my box, just to see if the bad one I had was a fluke. Also, just as a side note, these are actually 6.5x52, not 6x52 like the description says, or of least the ones that come in the best of Rocky Patel sampler are.
