Rocky Patel Signature Series Robusto Cigar Review
This 5x50 cigar features a very dark chocolate firm wrapper with slight tooth, a rock hard feel, triple cap, minimal veins, tight seams and a damp musty cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw, medium-full bodied flavors of a slightly sweet peppery earth with a zingy oily long finish. The first third moves through in 20 minutes with no flavor changes, just nice rich thick smoke. The ash is nice and tight while the burn is a little off needing a minor correction. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, the ash had dropped off after the first third, and flavors were changed slightly adding a nice milk chocolate flavor to the end of the draw through the finish, mixing well with the pepper. Ending at 55 minutes the last third showed no further changes, just holding the great rich flavors till the nub, while the burn evened out completely.
