Rocky's private stash.
Like a crazed ship captain boldly steering into uncharted waters, Rocky is at it again. The guy is a cigar maniac, and trust me when I tell you, what he has achieved here is nothing less than extraordinary. Introducing the Rocky Patel Private Cellar, a personal favorite of Rocky, that no doubt will become one of his most well-known creations to date.
From first light, it's easy to see why Rocky has so much vested in this blend. It has all the bases covered. Looks, check. Top-notch tobaccos, check. Complex and interesting, check. Droves of flavor, check. But before I get too ahead of myself, let's get to the blend at hand. It all starts with a dark, alluring Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, oozing with oils and sheen. This seamless leaf hugs a long-filler bouquet of Nicaraguan fillers secured by a Nicaraguan binder. This blend took years of tinkering and tweaking, and it's immediately evident. Cool, thick notes greet the palate as waves of rich, bold, yet refined flavors enter the fray. Hints of natural sweetness, dark chocolate, cocoa, earth, and an undeniable spicy-sweetness are all in attendance. It's safe to say this is another one of Rocky's cigars soon to be endowed with another 90+ rating.
