Hello everyone, tonight I am bringing you the Rocky Patel Honduran Classic from Famous Cigars. I scored this cigar along with four other ones from their hourly Monster Deals. This is the second cigar I have smoked from the Famous Rocky Patel line and I look forward to rendering my verdict on it to you. So sit back, light up a cigar, and let’s get into this review.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
WRAPPER: Maduro (No other info available)
BINDER & FILLER: Honduran / Nicaraguan
Length/Ring: 5.5 X 54
Price: I paid $ 19.50 for a five pack.
My Observations: This cigar is a very nice looking creation that sports a nice dark chocolate leaf wrapper. On a closer inspection, I found small non noticable veins that blend in perfectly with the makeup of this cigar. I found no imperfections and the only complaint I have was the cap that was a little off centered. On my finger touch inspection, I did find some soft spots but truly believe that it will not affect this smoke in any way.
Cigar Label: I like the look of the label that depicts the country of Honduras on it. The colors consist of blue, black, and gold.
Snip: Straight cut.
Pre-Draw: Very nice draw which I detected a nice tobacco rich flavor.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of earth and pepper flavors. The 2nd third continued with the earthy flavor but suddenly changed to a rich caramel flavor that kept me begging for more. The last third continued with the rich caramel that was joined with slight notes of coffee. Over all a nice combination that keeps you interested for sure.
Burn line: Jagged.
Liked it: Yes
Recommend it: Yes
Hint: Its worth the try.
Until Next Time
