Let me first tell you about the box of Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Churchill. When I saw it, I though “Wow! What a beauty!” I could admire this beautiful black varnished box endlessly until someone would remind me of my real mission. And my real mission is telling the world about the cigar it will definitely like.

So, the box wasn’t the only object I liked of course! The cigar itself looked fine, with a velvety touch and an overall nice construction. An oily wrapper with no sign of cracking and a semi-pressed shape showed this was an incredible cigar that couldn’t disappoint me.

Before I even cut it, I felt a very nice smell of cocoa and pepper. And it was not like an unpleasant burst that gets you down and makes you forget about the cigar for a very long time :) Instead, it made me want smoking it as soon as possible, till the very edge.

When I cut it with my Xikar cutter (it’s not advertising, I simply like the brand :) ), I felt the same aromas sniffed before – they showed off even more powerful and strong.

The cigar itself didn’t disappoint me. It had everything a good Rocky Patel should give to an aficionado: a peppery hint along with spiciness on the palate, and lots of cocoa and cedar afterwards made me feel I made the right choice.

My overall attitude towards this cigar: I would definitely buy it again and again. I would also say that if you consider yourself a real aficionado or a smoker with some experience, I would definitely advise you smoking it at least once in your life. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. Neither by the money range, nor by its taste and top quality. One tip would be to savor it slowly to let the cigar expose its potential. No rushing here.
