When it comes to quality, few boast the same level of obsessive dedication that Rocky Patel does. All of his award-winning, top-notch blends are created under the strictest of guidelines and are subject to frequent spot checks from the man himself. So what does this mean for you? An excellent product that you can depend on, time and time again.
Rocky Patel Platinum is no exception to this rule. The dark, oily and inviting Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper starts things off right, and there’s nary a blemish to be seen. Beneath this fine cloak, a bevy of Nicaraguan long-fillers and a San Andres binder complete the mix. This box-pressed handmade is medium to full-bodied, with enticing flavors such as vanilla, sweet spice, and black pepper that develop to include leather, wood, earth, and coffee. The experience remains impossibly smooth, with an even burn from first light to nub. Get Platinum, and you’ll never look back.
Rocky Patel Platinum received a well-deserved 92-rating noting: "Chocolate intonations come through immediately on this sharply pressed cigar. Underlying toasty notes are balanced by earth and vanilla bean."
