Hello everyone, its time for another cigar review. This time I chose to go with yet another cigar from one of my favorite cigar makers, the great Rocky Patel. The cigar is the Rosado, which was gifted to me by my oldest brother Eddie. I smoked this cigar while I was on vacation in Block Island and I have to say right off the bat, it was well worth my time.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Dominican
Length/Ring: 6 X 50
My Observations: This is an awesome looking cigar due largely to its deep brown leaf wrapper. I have to say right up front that who ever rolled this creature for him, really knew what he or she was doing. On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots and the cap was centered perfectly.
Cigar Label: I love the color scheme that Rocky went with for this cigar and found it to blend in perfectly with its makeup. The label consists of maroon, silver, and black colors. “Great Job Rocky!”
Snip: Straight cut.
Pre-Draw: Smooth with a berry type flavor.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of spice, earth, coffee, nuts and some type of berry flavor. The 2nd third continued with all of these flavors, but was suddenly joined with a woodsy flavor. The last third consisted of earth, wood, and nuts. All of these flavors blended well together and I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar.
Draw: Smooth and perfect
Burn line: Jagged at times and needed some touching up.
