Rocky Patel Vintage 1979

Description

’79 – a most fine Vintage indeed

Choosing a favorite Rocky is no easy task, but if you pushed me, I’d lean towards the Vintage family. One of the cigars that helped put Rocky on the map, the “Vintage” series features tobaccos aged for over a decade, and the results are nothing short of excellent. But nothing could prepare you for the masterpiece at hand today: Rocky Patel Vintage 1979. 

Yeah, you read that right: 1979. This cigar features a gorgeous, silky-smooth genuine African Cameroon wrapper leaf first cultivated 40 years ago. Don’t believe me? Taste one for yourself and you’ll be quickly convinced. The amount of delicate sweetness and subtle spice that pours out with every puff on this gem is the type of flavor you can only get from expertly aged leaf. As for the performance? Don’t worry about it. Every one of these cigars that I gobbled down (I mean… sampled) delivered a razor-sharp burn line and a smooth, buttery draw that was oh-so-appealing. I won’t lie: these boxes are going to set you back a pretty penny. But for a cigar this rare and delicious, it’s worth every red cent.

Another Rocky Patel offering that I've yet to sample. This one came in a nice assorted sample pack of 10 RP cigars. This particular cigar is priced at more than $12 a stick which is pretty steep. Perhaps I should have saved this for a special occasion but it's too late now! This is a fine looking cigar, sturdy, well constructed, firm with a very good dry draw that tastes like buttered wheat with spicy notes. The burn is indeed razor sharp, smooth and satisfying. Pairs well with a dry vodka/gin martini. This is a "big" smoke in a little stick. Long ash accumulating in the first inch. Very enjoyable. Can't remember if I've had one of these but I suspect I have. The ash continues to grow with no signs of dropping off, a sign of an excellent constructed cigar. A fantastic smoke. Let's do it again!
