COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 51: 4.0-Mile Cigar
Ecuadorian: Sumatra, Nicaragua, Rocky Patel Royale, Toro Well, I’ll be… today was the first time I’ve smoked the Rocky Patel Royale and what a beauty.

This Box Pressed Toro has been hiding in my TupperDor since July 2018 and I just now noticed them… Go figure!

Besides the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, the first thing that caught my attention was the double binder of Connecticut Broadleaf and Connecticut Shade tobaccos… this is leading me to believe that this will be a fine full-flavored cigar… and the results were spot-on!

Even though this first experience was during my Cigar-Walk this morning, the Rocky Patel Royale held its own against the elements (it was trying to rain). I’m thinking that the next time I smoke this, it will be in the solitude of a quiet Cigar Lounge or my Mobile Cigar Lounge so that I will be able to focus more on some of the nuanced tobacco flavors I may have missed while walking…

OBTW, this was a perfect Four-Mile Cigar right down to the Finger Burning Nub!
