Rocky Patel Fusion Double Maduro Toro

Got this in the Newbie PIF from Brian - bbrodnax. Really enjoyable way to spend the evening. The heat of summer is waning, and it was only 90 degrees or so when we headed out to the patio not long before sundown. With the ceiling fan kicking up some breeze, and the real thing rustling through the trees, I cut the head and drew a breath of chocolate and rich tobacco before lighting up.

It's a beautiful stick - great maduro color, straight, firm construction, and two - yes, two - bands! You know that appeals to me!

After toasting and lighting I puffed in a nicely-balanced blend of the maduro big three - earth, wood, and leather. The smoke was rich and plentiful, and dry in my mouth. For the first half of the stick the flavors remained fairly constant, with an occasional hint of pepper, almost unnoticeable. I found myself thinking it was a nice, but not remarkable, cigar.

But at the halfway point rich cocoa flavors infiltrated the mix, and the peppery spice stepped up a little. Through the end of the smoke I enjoyed the rich interplay of these flavors.

All in all I didn't find it terribly complex, but it was very pleasant and interesting.

The burn was pretty good. Any slight unevenness was easily corrected by rotating the stick. It went out a couple of times when I neglected it too long - the downside to suddenly having a fun ashtray!

The light-colored ash seemed firm enough, but dropped off obediently when requested.

This is a really nice, medium-powered cigar that should appeal to a broad range of tastes.

And the table is a recycle project - we picked up the bones at a thrift store and made the mosaic inlay.
