Rocky Patel Royal Vintage in Robusto (BP) by Rocky Patel Cigars

COVID-19 Day 668
My first impression of this inaugural experience with the Rocky Patel Royal Vintage in Robusto (BP) was that it felt light for the length and girth of this specimen… other than that… a Dust Bowl…

Once lit I discovered an open draw with a little resistance that offered up a decent amount of dry smoke that progressed into the dry slightly bitter tobacco flavors at the start… Let’s let this warm-up and see where she goes…

At the halfway point, everything still remains the same pretty much… maybe I needed to let this rest a little longer… who knows.

Oh well, I have four more to try from the 5-pack I purchase recently

Stay Tuned…
