REVIEW NOTES

This cigar looks good enough to eat without burning it! Beautifully constructed, this dark chocolate looking cigar has no noticeable flaws. Box pressed and well packed, it feels loaded with tobacco without being too firm. Smells of cedar and what I guess I would call a slight earthy smell. Just after lighting, it starts off in the medium to full bodied territory with flavors of earthy tobacco and spice. Black pepper is there by the 2nd third of the cigar along with a wonderful coffee note. This stick also draws perfectly and leaves a nice velvety texture in your mouth. I haven't mentioned the finish yet, but it is very long, lingering on the pallet for quite some time. By the last third, the body is closer to full than medium and the spices have overtaken the pepper. Remnants of coffee are still there, and maybe a deep earthy taste. Well, I have to say that this cigar has been one of my favorites to date. It is absolutely my favorite in the Rocky Patel line so far. The gorgeous construction, flawless draw, wonderful core of flavors, and lengthy finish are just the icing on the cake, if you will. Excellent!
