altToday’s cigar reviews on Puff.com cover the Rocky Patel R4 Robusto and the C & C Connecticut Robusto.  Both are quite affordable, but are they any good?  Keep reading to find out all the details.

Rocky Patel R4 Robusto

I’ve had the pleasure of being able to sample several Rocky Patel cigars over time, and I can’t say that the brand has ever disappointed me.  When I ran across the R4 line and saw its very affordable price tag, I just had to snag one up.  After all, smoking cigars can get expensive, so finding a stick that offers quality and affordability is a beautiful thing.  Will the R4 be good enough as an everyday cigar, there is only one way to find out, so let’s get on with the actual review.

I’ll be giving the Rocky Patel R4 Robusto a try for this review.  It measures 5 x 50, and is just one of four sizes in the line.  The others include the 6 x 52 Toro, 6 x 52 Torpedo, and the 7 1/2 x 52 Double Corona.  The cigar’s filler and binder are both made up of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos.  Finishing off the composition is a Corojo wrapper.  As far as strength is concerned, the R4 is described as being smooth and medium-bodied.

The Rocky Patel R4 may not be the prettiest cigar I have ever seen in terms of its presentation, but it does appear to be constructed well.  The light brown wrapper has some oil present and a few medium-sized veins throughout.  The cigar feels smooth to the touch and has just a bit of give when pressed.  The band near the head matches the wrapper’s color nicely and features the R4 name in the middle of what appears to be a sun.  Prior to lighting, I detect a barnyard smell and a cold taste of wood.

The R4 exhibits a solid burn overall once lit.  The draw is good – not too tight nor too loose.  The burn stays even on its own without requiring any of my help along the way.  No re-lights are necessary.  The ash is white and solid in nature.
