Not trying this cigar is prohibited.
If you’re a fan of Rocky Patel, it’s likely that you already know he’s one of the industry’s biggest defenders, spending much of his time in Washington, DC fighting for the protection and rights of the premium cigar industry. So it’s natural that he’d want to send a message to the FDA with one of his new cigar releases. And he does it perfectly with the new Rocky Patel Prohibition. The message is far from subtle: the federal government’s ban on alcohol during Prohibition was a complete failure and the FDA’s attack on premium cigars will result in a similar outcome. Gorgeously packaged in Rocky Patel-branded Mason jars inspired by the moonshine bootleggers of the Prohibition era, Rocky Patel Prohibition is much more than just a message to the FDA…it’s a damn good cigar. Handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Rocky’s Tavacusa factory,Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro: rich and sweet with spicy nuances and notes of coffee, leather, dark chocolate, and molasses. Medium-bodied.
Connecticut: weighs in at a considerably smooth medium body. Cedary, with hints of cream, hay, and slight black pepper.Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andres received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "A toasty, bready smoke whose notes of cloves, black pepper and molasses combine for a zesty, sweet-and-spicy character overall."
Judging by these other reviews, I maybe swimming up stream; I thought they were good, but nothing close to great-- 86
Picked up one of each at my local B&M. I'm a fan of both the wrappers and Rocky Patel cigars so I gave them a shot. They sat in my humidor for about a month and grabbed both on a Sunday, making sure I had plenty of time to enjoy them. I started with the San Andres and, as usual for a Rocky cigar, awesome cigar from the taste to the construction. Another gem from Mr. Patel and crew. Later, I fired up the PA Broadleaf. Being an AJ fan I'm extremely familiar and slightly partial to this leaf. Rocky hit the nail on the head with this blend, too. Again, perfect construction with a very entertaining flavor profile, these two cigars are knockouts! Do yourself a favor and try these wonderful creations. You will enjoy every minute!
The Mexican wrapped cigar is wonderful. It starts off with loads of black pepper and chocolate. Then as you progress through this cigar it adds a toasted sweetness to the mix. A very complex and enjoyable smoke. I can't wait to try the Broadleaf; I'm sure it's just as good.
I haven't tried both, but the San Andreas version is amazing. Perhaps my favorite RP cigar of all time.
I went to an event the other night for this cigar and there is only one word to sum it up, WOW! This stick rivals Undercrown for its taste and smoothness. The burn is excellent! I had a second one a few minutes after I finished the first. One of the best sticks I've had all year!
