Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto Box Pressed
Rocky Patel Special Reserve Sungrown Maduro is made at the TAVICUSA factory owned by the Rocky Patel company in Esteli, Nicaragua. This full-bodied, full-flavored cigar is made with a beautiful, dark USA Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. All sizes are box-pressed.
Box-pressed, triple-capped, and adorned with a sharply contrasting red and white band, the Sun Grown Maduro by Rocky Patel is a beauty to behold and hold.
The entire length of the barrel has great spring, so you know that the draw will be on point and that slightly oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper smells sensational. It’s also a bit on the rougher end in regard to texture, almost like fine-grit sandpaper, which we like a lot in a toothier cigar.
Aromas are a blend of bittersweet cocoa, dark roast coffee, earthen maduro maturity, leather, and a magnificent spiced finish. The latter of which blends familiar flavors like black and white pepper with a dash of star anise and cedar, and tops it all off with a smidgeon of tartness from the extended fermentation process.
