The winter time is usually a time for strong brews, hearty meals, and time spent by the fire. This winter however, has been uncharacteristically mild (knock on wood because I’m not complain’) but that hasn’t stopped Rocky from crafting another memorable full flavored full-bodied masterpiece. Introducing the Rocky Patel Winter 2012, the newest offering from Rocky’s coveted seasonal collection.
Following in the footsteps of previous seasonal blends, the Winter ’12 pulls out all the stops to create an experience all its own. Each Winter ’12 is carefully draped in a dark and velvety Habano maduro wrapper teeming with natural oils. This impressive leaf hugs a double binder combination of Costa Rican and San Andres leaves that cradle a rich long-filler blend of Nicaraguan and Panamanian tobaccos. This complex blend performs perfectly, as the slow burn reveals spicy-sweet flavors highlighted by an espresso and coffee bean crescendo. Complex no doubt - the Rocky Patel Winter ’12 will tease your palate as each puff is different from the last. The Winter ’12 is one Rocky’s best seasonal releases yet. But like our good friend Frosty, these won’t last till spring, so enjoy ‘em while they last.
