Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the Rocky Patel Vintage 2003. This is my first Rocky Patel review for 2012, and I have heard good things about it so I’m pretty pumped to find out if he’s hit a home run or struck out. Anyway, I found this cigar at the Smoke Stack in North Providence for my Rhode Island readers. So with the history behind us, I am now ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Nicaraguan
Length/Ring: 6.5 X 52
My Observations: This is a very nice looking cigar that was rolled perfectly. I say this because of its nice medium brown leaf wrapper that is surrounded by small non noticeable veins. On my finger touch inspection I found no soft spots.
- Over all “A” in the grading department
Cigar Label: Blue and white. Very nice touch Mr. Patel
Snip: Straight cut.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a small touch of spice, and lots of leather. The 2nd third consisted of coffee, leather, wood. The last third continued with these flavors and that’s how it finished out.
Burn line: Nice and even.
Liked it: Yes
Recommend it: Yes.
Until Next Time
