Another great cigar sent to us courtesy of our friends at Famous Smoke Shop. This month we bring you the Rocky Patel Nicaragua. An extremely well done cigar that if full flavored and very well balanced.

LOOKS: The Rocky Patel Nicaragua features a medium colored Habano wrapper leaf with some small to medium veins running through it. The wrapper leaf is slightly toothy and gives off an almost suede finish. The size we are reviewing is the torpedo and it is brilliantly executed to a nicely finished point on the top.

The band of the Rocky Patel Nicaragua is green on the top with gold trim and writing that reads, “Rocky Patel.” Below, a black band trimmed in gold that reads, “Nicaragua.”

TASTE: The Rocky Patel Nicaragua really impressed me in the flavor category. This cigar is full flavored but not overbearing. The cigar opens with strong wood notes of cedar and just a hint of mild pepper. As the cigar progresses the cedar wood notes remain consistent and are joined by a slight nuttiness, as well as, an increase in the pepper flavors. The Rocky Patel Nicaragua finishes strong and balanced with the aforementioned flavors pairing excellently with each other.

STRENGTH: Full medium to mild full.

BURN: Out of the five sticks I smoked, all but one burned almost perfectly. The other was being smoked outdoors on a mildly windy day. Even and crisp burn with nice white smoke.

Buy it? If you are a fan of Nicaraguan cigars and like full flavor and full strength, then you should definitely pick up the Rocky Patel Nicaragua from Famous Smoke Shop. The flavors blend extremely well together making this stick quite enjoyable.
