Rocky Patel Fifty


It’s been a long time since I first blazed the Rocky Patel Fifty and I was looking forward to this one… It didn’t disappoint.

At the start, this cigar felt soft and smoochy, but it never became an issue

Creamy Earthy Spice with lots of smoke on the first third and my nostrils are singing to me.

Halfway thru the black pepper picks up and almost brings tears to my eyes on the retrohale; my tongue is getting spiced out, I think I need to slow this down; I’ll rest this cigar for a bit

An hour into it and I’m at the last third. The flavors are ramping up and I’m diggin’ it.

Total time 1-1/2 hours
Stay Smokey
Stay Chill

When I first purchased this Rocky Patel Fifty I thought it was going to be a good candidate for my “Sunroof” cigars; something that I didn’t have to think about, something that wasn’t too complex, an “Easy Ride”.

I think this is too good for that. This one deserves a little more respect. I think I’ll sit down for my next one.
