A new decade of Rocky Patel Vintage cigars.
Rocky Patel's Vintage Series is his bread and butter. They're the cigars that put him on the map years ago. And even today, they continue to wow customers - new and old alike. There's a reason why these heralded handmades have scored so highly, on so many occasions - with ratings reaching as high as 93-points. Because, well, the cigars are simply exceptional.
And now, the Rocky Patel Vintage cigar saga continues. This round features a dark and oily 8-year-aged Cameroon wrapper overtop a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers that are equally well-aged. Flawlessly constructed, this medium to full-bodied handmade delivers a serious array of flavor including notes of cedar, black pepper, coffee, and a caramel-like sweetness on the finish. It's got some oomph, it definitely has plenty of flavor, and it's smooth and well-balanced too. Yet another feather in RP's now-overloaded cap.
Rocky Patel Vintage '03 Cameroon received a well-deserved 92-rating, earning a spot in the Top 25 Cigars of 2017. The reviews noted, "Its melange of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos serve to showcase and exalt the rare wrapper, which is delightfully sweet-and-sour in character."
