Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Robusto
Rocky Patel’s Vintage Series is his bread and butter. They’re the cigars that put him on the map years ago. And even today, they continue to wow customers – new and old alike. There’s a reason why have scored so highly, on so many occasions – with ratings reaching as high as 93 points. Because, well, the cigars are simply exceptional.
And now, the Rocky Patel Vintage cigar saga continues. This round features a dark and oily 8-year-old Cameroon wrapper overtop a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers that are equally well-aged. Flawlessly constructed, this medium to full-bodied handmade delivers a serious array of flavor including notes of cedar, black pepper, coffee, and a caramel-like sweetness on the finish. It’s got some oomph, it definitely has plenty of flavor, and it’s smooth and well-balanced too. Yet another feather in RP’s now-overloaded cap.
Rocky Patel Vintage ’03 Cameroon received a well-deserved 92-rating, earning a spot in the Top 25 Cigars of 2017.
