Rocky Patel's birthday is February 26th. So if you see him, wish him a happy one, buy him a round, and tell him how much you liked his limited-edition birthday cigar. And trust me, you will thoroughly enjoy this cigar.
The Rocky Patel II-XXVI has a lion's share of good things going for it. First and foremost, the blend is a personal favorite of Rocky himself. And let's face it, the guy has good taste. Second, this baby looks gorgeous. Draped in a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, and brimming with Brazilian and Nicaraguan long-fillers, it's a sight to behold. Then there's the wonderful profile. Smooth, cool, and medium to full-bodied, this handmade screams complexity. Up front you're greeted with dashes of white pepper and dark chocolate. As the burn progresses additional notes of leather, coffee, and an oaky core shine through. This absolutely delicious handmade is made only better by the presentation. Packed inside gorgeous piano finish boxes, this limited-edition run is nothing short of spectacular. The only downside is that a mere 1,000 boxes are being produced in each size. What the hell are you waiting for?!
