When I first heard Rocky Patel was releasing Super Ligero, I half expected a cheesy band with some corny superhero theme. But I have to admit I was wrong. Dead wrong. After taking one for a spin, Super Ligero not only looks sharp, but its going to appeal to a ton of people.
Don't judge a book by its cover. I preach it a thousand times over. But this is one handmade you can safely pass judgement on from very first glance. The verdict? A bold son of a gun that packs one hell of a punch. Dressed in a dark, feisty Honduran Habano wrapper, Super Ligero isn't afraid to let its presence known. And once you pull back this veritable peel, the fruits that await inside are even more intense. Muy intense long-fillers from Nicaragua and Costa Rica produce a heady profile laced with oak, cinnamon, white pepper, and toasty tobacco. Growing more intense throughout...I suggest sitting down to full enjoy this one. Move over Edge....Super Ligero now wears the crown as Rocky Patel's strongest.
“I call it "Big Smokey". Carries a good flavor and billows of smoke. A handsomely made cigar with great construction and true ring size. It's a really good cigar for everyday smoke. It may be RP's strongest but the Edge is smoother and still packs a punch, specially the Edge Maduro. The EM is the bomb! The Edge Maduro wins my vote. Neverthess, Ligero is a good cigar.”

“This cigar is in my top 5 so far for 2015. This will soon be another sought after blend from Mr. Patel. It is a certified flavor bomb in every way. Not too strong, but not for beginners either.”

“Just finished the Lancero, brings to mind the JdN Dark Corojo. Dark, earthy, peppery/spice and very powerful! Great smoke output and razor sharp burn. I don't usually smoke Rocky Patel, but very good cigar.”
