$55 Box of Rocky Patel

Just picked up a box of Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo Lancero for $55. Never bought a box of them before. Good deal or not? BTW, is it real corojo?

They're good. Just let them rest a month or two.

Re: $55 Box of Rocky Patel

yeah, i'd say that's a really good deal. i've never had the corojo before, but i do enjoy the maduro lancero. it's a well constructed lancero that has a really good draw right from the start. what do you mean is it a real corojo? not sure where it's grown but probably Honduras or Nicaragua.

That's about 60% off the going price, which I think almost anyone would consider a good deal.

What I mean is, is it legit corojo, because I've read that true corojo was/is very susceptible to blue mold among other diseases, and much of what is currently called corojo is actually a hybrid of corojo seed, and some other seed. Doesn't matter enough to turn me away from them since I still bought 'em! And I have a couple maduro box presses which are tasty.
