REVIEW NOTES

To me this is a very nice looking cigar. It is very firm, just the way that I like it. When I sniff the wrapper I get a very soft cedar and that is about it. However, when I smell the foot of the cigar I get a great chicken coop and wet hay. I love the smell. I clipped my cigar with my Palio cutter and gently toasted the foot with my CI Lotus Laser torch. For me the draw on this cigar is perfect. It has only slight resistance. Two to three puffs gets me plenty of smoke. As for the flavor it is very creamy and nutty with a slight spicy finish. Now the cigar I am smoking tonight has been resting in my humidor for over six months and I do notice a difference. This one starts out much smoother and more mellow than the earlier ones that I have smoked. I like it both ways. The flavor is starting to remind me of whiskey, simply love it. No problem with the burn and the ash holds on pretty good. Now I do have a soft spot for this cigar. The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 was my very first cigar and that could be why it is still to this day one of my absolute favorite cigars.
