“Rocky Patel Fifteenth Anniversary” Corona Gorda
This box pressed cigar had a dark brown oily wrapper with small veins and a velvety soft, seamless looking construction. The pre lit aroma consisted of sweet tobacco and barnyard notes. The burn was perfect as well as the draw which produced good amounts of oily, medium bodied smoke. The ash stacked very well and was a beautiful salt and pepper color. The first third of the cigar was producing flavors of a sweet tobacco and pepper on the draw with leather and pepper notes continuing on the finish. At the half way point, the sweet tobacco morphed into a faint tobacco with a sweet fresh bread like flavor with a leathery and peppery heat on the finish. The last third showed yet another transition. The draw flavors consisted of a faintly sweet tobacco and coffee note with the previously mentioned leathery and peppery finish. I have to say that I really enjoyed the complexity this cigar had. As always, Stay Toasting!
