 Honduran Broadleaf Maduro, Honduran Broadleaf , Maduro, Rocky Patel, Rocky Patel Cigars, Vintage 1990, Vintage 1990 Maduro As you can see, I haven’t smoked this popular Rocky Patel cigar since 2019! Let’s see what this Vintage 1990 (Maduro) by Rocky Patel Cigars has in store for me today.

Once lit, volumes of dry smoke thru a perfect draw delivering tobacco flavors of earthy coffee and leather tobacco flavors start to define this mild to medium cigar… The retrohale is a mild pepper spice to go along with this smooth ride so far.

Moving into the second third, the black pepper flavors coat my palette along with strong dark coffee And cocoa tobacco flavors… This is like smoking a cup of black coffee

In the last third, the leather tobacco flavors have moved up front to join the earthy coffee and cocoa and pepper that provides a lasting finish.

This was a good solid cigar… I think I should be sure to have a few on hand… I’m down to my last two, time to purchase some more of these Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 (Maduro) cigars!

Until next time…
Stay Smoky
Stay Chill

Vintage 1990 is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero draped in a tantalizing natural Broadleaf wrapper from Honduras. It’s medium-bodied and box-pressed with a really enjoyable, complex smooth-rich flavor.
