Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009

Submitted by Rob on June 13, 2009 – 11:20 amNo Comment

Wrapper: Sumatra
Filler: Nicaragua
Size: Robusto(5 x 50)
Strength: Medium

Construction: The Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009 did not have the best construction. This Rocky cigar had lots of veins and even started cracking during our smoke session. Some of the cigars from the back even started to come unraveled. The tobacco was firmly packed – we have to give it some credit somewhere.

Draw: Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009 has a great draw. You can be comfortable cutting or punching the stick and not have to worry about the smoke.

Burn: Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009 is fairly even but can still be described as jagged. The wrapper did crack on a couple sticks and even came unraveled during the smoking process. On a positive note I can say the Rocky Patel did burn at just the right pace. The ash was somewhat flaky and white in color with a few gray sections.

Taste: The Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009 starts off with a nice spice but quickly mellows out. This Rocky Patel doesn’t have very many unique flavors and everything is just neutral. An earthy, chocolaty, undertone will reside in the finish of this Spring cigar. The smoke is smooth and easy on the palate.

Consistent in flavor, this Rocky Patel Spring Collection is still earthy and the smoke is still great. The chocolate can still be tasted lingering in the background keeping this cigar in the medium body range.

Earthy, earthy, earthy are the only words I can find to describe the final third of this cigar. Consistent all the way through you are finishing with a chocolate flavor, perhaps even some coffee, and there might be a slight introduction of some nutty notes.

Final Verdict: Rocky Patel Spring Collection 2009 has a $7.xx price range. Rocky Patel makes decent cigars that are good to keep in the humidor, this one is inparticular is going to be a love it or blah (boring) smoke. Due to the limited release of the Sping Collection, the consistency in flavors and the price point I would keep a few of these cigars in the humidor. Stopping me from buying the whole box would be the wrapper, burn and lack of any unique flavor profiles.
