Cigar Review: Rocky Patel 1990

This is the second time I was able to taste this great cigar. I was surprised each time to see how mild it was. I really don't think it is a medium cigar. It is so smooth and each time it is a great quality wrapper, draw, and burn. I would describe it as a very easy to handle burning oak. Here is what has to say;

"The Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 line is a medium bodied smoke. This blend of rare aged tobacco has the perfect balance of flavor, complexity, and richness. A very smooth earthy smoke with notes of cedar and a light espresso flavor. In pursuit of the finest tobacco"s the world has to offer, Rocky Patel uses this 12 year old Honduran Broadleaf wrapper along with a 5 year old filler and binder that will satisfy every smoker from novices to the most discriminating of aficionados."

The actual cigar smells like an old cob-web ridden barn and its wrapper is a smooth oily Honduran. I noticed its little sweet nuances in the smoke but they were so light and creamy they are really hard to "find". After smoking a whole cigar, I felt none of that film that develops in your mouth. Perfect burn and great finish. So in conclusion, I would definitely recommend this smoke to others but if you are looking for a deep fully bodied cigar this isn't for you. It is very mild smoke that I would have after a big meal. I wouldn't want a rich deep cigar when I am buttoning my belt from a huge meal! I give this mild cigar a 7 of 10.
