Rocky Patel Connecticut
Wrapper - Connecticut shade leaf
Filler - Dominican and Nicaraguan
Ring Size – 50
Length – 5.50”

Construction: Light brown. A little bit of tooth with veins. Very firm. On the dry side.

Prelight: Peppery scent.

Burn: Lit evenly. Burned evenly. A very solid gray ash. Almost no resting smoke at all. It burned a little fast. No relight required.

Draw: Lots of smoke with each draw. I wish there had been more flavor.

Smoking notes: This is a very mild cigar. Very smooth. It gave my tongue a peppery tingle. Not much change in body or flavor. Short finish. Light and airy.

Overall Impression: This was only an average cigar for me at best. I guess I expected more from a Rocky Patel and was disappointed. Each draw gave me a mouthful of smoke but there was not a lot of flavor. It gave my tongue a peppery tingle but it didn’t have a peppery taste. The closest thing to describe the flavor was burnt coffee. Not bad but not great either. This might be a good cigar for someone who enjoys a mild cigar or someone who likes a coffee taste.
