Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Maduro Toro

6 1/2" X 50, Maduro

Appearance: This is one pretty looking stogie. Firm and slightly box pressed, with a beautiful dark maduro wrapper that practically looked chocolate coated and good enough to eat. No visible lines or flaws, very nice.

Pre-Light: Clip was easy and flawless with my Credo cutter. Pre Light draw seemed a tad loose, even for my liking, though the flavor notes were great, cocoa and a rich earthiness. This cigar begged to be lit.

Burn/Draw: The burn was spot on the whole time, relatively straight and self correcting. Never an issue, which is the way it should be. The ash was firm and pretty well mottled ranging from almost white to quite dark in certain specs. As for the draw, the looseness that I detected prelight was initially annoying. Although the draw wasn't quite where I would have liked it to be, it didn't hurt the overall experience.

Flavors: This was a pretty tasty cigar, and very much in the vein of the other Rocky Patel cigars I have had. Notes were of cocoa and coffee, with earthy undertones, and leather. It was rich and full and the tons of rich full smoke produced definitely added to the experience. Overall would like to try more and so far I recommend it.

Yep. Alas my blog is not the most girl friendly place on the planet, I apologize. I originally started the blog a a place to lump all my cigar reviews into one place so people can find them. I used to post them on a message board, but after the board crashed and I lost them I thought it might be a good idea to take more control of them myself. It has grown to a little bit more than that now, as I interject other things in every now and then. I used to post some of my political views on occasion , but with my increasing disdain with the American political process, I have stopped following politics almost altogether. So I pretty much only post about cigars and sports anymore (with a stress on Celtic FC soccer/football, and my true sports love Boston Red Sox Baseball, which is inthe offeseason at the moment.). I dont know if any of my audience reads anything other than the cigar reviews, but that won't stop me from posting.
