Rocky Patel Cargo
All of the great taste and quality you would expect from a Rocky Patel at a modestly priced, great smoking cigar
Customer Testimonials
I thought I had put up a review of these, but maybe it was only on the banter. This is based on only a couple of the toro grande, and one of the toros. Both of the first, had a nice white pepper undertaste which continued all throughout the cigar that helped keep my interest. Both were nicely rolled, no burn issues, the draw was easy with lots of smoke volume, but with a lightness to it ... because it is mixed filler, it did not hold the ash for long, but that was no problem with me, just keep it in the ashtray and tap it. The first one I used a guillotine cutter, and had only started having problems with getting clippings/loose tobacco in my mouth after 4 inches were gone ... no big deal. The second one, I used a punch and it performed flawlessly. I don't like real spicy cigars, so as I said, the toro grande is mild to medium with just enough spice to keep things interesting. Really liked the cigar for it's price and performance, very much unlike any other RP I've had (somewhere I saw a write up which said they use the clippings/leftover tobacco from the 15th Anniversary cigar for this. The one toro that I've had performed well but was so mild I barely tasted anything ... now this is only one cigar and that was straight off the truck without any humi time. I doubt that it would change much, but I could be wrong. I am surprised that the toro would differ at all in flavor from the toro grande. Again, both sizes performed well, having excellent construction, in my limited experience with them.
Last night I had my third RP Cargo toro grande ... the first two had a very easy draw, had a light white pepper taste on the tongue which made them interesting and made me wonder what cigar the tobacco came from ... I saw in one description that the tobacco was clippings from the 15th Decade ... The first one I clipped and it held together well but after 4 inches the bits of tobacco started coming out in my mouth, so the second one I punched and had no loose tobacco at all ... very good smoke and draw ... the one I had last night did start unraveling/flaking about half way through which was annoying, but still I continued to like the smoke ... mild to medium. I don't know why, but the single toro size I've had did not seem to have the strength, the toro grande has had ... was very mild.
I feel blessed to have got a box of these for a real bargain $39:99. After ordering them I was reading some mixed reviews on other sites and was wondering how these were going to turn out to be. Well I need not have worried, just as all of Rocky's other fine offerings these were no disapointment. Right from the doorstep I eagerly opened the box and disapeared outside with my cutter, lighter and cigar. I had read there some mixed fillers in amongst the long filler in these cigars, so I was carefull when clipping the end to only clip it about half of the diameter. This cigar lit easily, had a nice easy draw, burnt perfectly for about 45 minutes of tasty pleasure. Rocky scores again, these are a fine cigar especially for the price I paid. As a bonus the box is pretty neat as well.
Well I recently tried a Cargo cigar, its was actually pretty good. It's not a cigar I would pass out for black tie affair, but its great for the golf course, poker game, or Friday night party. This is a great middle of the road cigar that I will always have on stand by in my humidor. I do suggest that you use a punch instead of a cutter, they seem to mess up a bit with a cutter but this may just have been me or my cutter.
