The Indian Tabac Super Fuerte line from Rocky Patel is a beauty. From first sight right down to the finger-burning nub, this cigar will captivate you. Handmade in Honduras, this gem employs an awesome blend of long-leaf tobaccos from Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras to generate voluminous clouds of thick white smoke and a creamy, rich flavor with hints of chocolate. To tame this robust blend, a luscious wrapper is applied - either a dark, Nicaraguan Maduro or a flavorful Cuban-seed Corojo - just before aging each cigar for a minimum of 4 years. This patient aging process leads to a mature, round character that's buttery smooth and ultimately satisfying.
Note: Super Gordo size IS NOT box-pressed like the rest of the line.
Indian Tabac Super Fuerte received a well-deserved '92' point score from Cigar Aficionado, which added: "A dark, well-built cigar that draws well. The flavors are rich, round and elegant. The smoke is nutty and spicy, with a medium- to full-bodied character."
Back in 2000-2005, these were amazing. They had habana 2000 wrappers and there wasn't a bad choice in the entire Indian Tabac line. Now they have ultra-generic corojo wrappers that all but make these cigars obsolete and a bit pricey for what they offer today.
Rocky has an extensive line today but even the Patel cigars of today aren't as good as the Tabacs of yesterday.
