 Aged Tobacco, Connecticut 99, Rocky Patel Cigars, Toro, Vintage 1999 Connecticut This is a mild and a very smooth cigar… delivering creamy buttered toast and nut tobacco flavors with a black pepper spice on the retrohale that let’s me know it’s there.

At the halfway point the buttery-smooth smoke still continues with familiar tobacco flavors in addition to leather flavors joining the party. The nutty notes are starting to get warmed up tasting like an almond paste (Mascarpone). The retrohale has really tamed down at this point.

At the final third this Vintage 1999 Connecticut by Rocky Patel has evolved into a tasty smoking experience… this has earned a place in the Walking-Cigar Rotation.

 Aged Tobacco, Connecticut 99, Rocky Patel Cigars, Toro, Vintage 1999 Connecticut  What a treat! … I had to purchase more of these Vintage 1999 Connecticut by Rocky Patel since I last smoked this a couple of months ago.

And, I’m glad I did! I was rewarded again with buttery-smooth smoke of creamy nuts and leather with a well-rounded pepper spice on the retrohale… And not to mention the flawless razor-sharp burn… I was very impressed with this Vintage 1999 Connecticut experience today and they’re deliciously affordable too!

I’m almost ready to say these are Box Worthy

 Aged Tobacco, Connecticut 99, Rocky Patel Cigars, Toro, Vintage 1999 Connecticut Wow! What an unexpected surprise!

Four delicious miles are in the bag with this “Aged” Vintage 1999 Connecticut by Rocky Patel on today’s Cigar Walk. Not to mention that I haven’t smoked this Vintage 1999 Connecticut by Rocky Patel in over two years, so I’ve forgotten what this cigar was all about!

Three years of resting has made for a perfectly smooth and flavorful walking companion this morning! I just might have to purchase some more of these dandy cigars!
