Rocky's done it again.
After Rocky introduced Decade (10th Anniversary) the praise was unanimous, with many critics citing it as his best blend yet. But that was before he released the 15th Anniversary. Capping off 15 years of continued success in the cigar business, the 15th Anniversary goes above and beyond any of Rocky's previous offerings.
A truly delicious morsel, each 15th comes draped in a flavorful Ecuador Habano wrapper, concealing a long-filler core of lush Nicaraguan tobaccos and binder. This recipe yields a wonderfully balanced and extremely smooth cigar that delivers with every puff. No doubt Rocky's finest creation, the 15th produces savory notes of cocoa, espresso bean, and spices behind a long sweet finish. Throughout the slow burn expect the intensity to build, inching toward a bold satisfying crescendo.
Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary has impressive resume. It was awarded the #6 Best Cigar of 2011, scoring 93-points. It was again honored as a Top 25 Cigar of 2018, landing at #20, scoring 92-points. One such review noted: "The Ecuadoran wrapper that covers this cigar combines with the Nicaraguan tobacco on the inside to produce a medium-to-full-bodied smoke redolent of nuts, chocolate, oak and vanilla."
