A New Cigar by Rocky Patel
Upfront, I am the new reviewer for Famous Smoke. I have 3 or 4 reviews posted. I've made it clear that I ain't no shill for Famous. I have a review coming up for a cigar that I hated and it will be posted. My reviews are funny and irreverent.
That being said, they sent me a Famous Signature Series by Rocky Patel.
For the most part, I believe their house brands are excellent. All of them made by big name manufacturers in the business.
I had never smoked this cigar until they sent it to me. And it blew me away.
If you like Pepin Garcia cigars, then this is your baby. Lots of spice and boldness and complexity. And they are brilliant right out of the cello.
Below, I posted the review part of my blog. It's the truth, I swear to God. There is no embellishments whatsoever.
I like the cigar so much, that I bought a box of Toros on cigarauctioneer.
So I am asking if any of you have tried this stick and what do you think of it?
If you would like to read the rest of the review, go to Famous Smoke and click on blogs at the top of the page and then scroll down the list until you find the review.
"The pre-light was delicious. Faint smell of cocoa and earth. Upon light up, I was struck with two tastes...black pepper in the back of my mouth and cream which tamed the pepper. And then a panoply of flavors came forth...earthiness and minerals...a tart taste of citrus backed up by the tartness of black cherry...but these tastes were faint and not overwhelming. As the second third came around the earthiness and minerals blended and wrapped around the slightly spicy taste. It urged the senses with one taste after another...and as it wound down, I could taste a little licorice or anise. I couldn't believe so many flavors would combine so nicely. I smoked it to the nub. While it started out as a full flavored, medium body smoke, it ramped up towards the end into a full flavored, full bodied smoke."
