Rocky Patel 'Sun Grown' Robusto

Rocky Patel Sun Grown cigar 1
Rocky Patel 'Sun Grown' Robusto. 5.5x50. Excellent build with straight lines, subdued veins, and nice even shades. Medium brown wrap with darker shades toward the foot. Cut and lit well. Medium draw pre-light, easier shortly after light. First half tastes of herbal spice, mild pepper, roasted almond. Second half tastes of almond, earth, allspice on the exhale. Aroma was mild tobacco and coffee. Medium body. Wrap was creamy from the midpoint down.

Ash was clean with perfectly even marbling, holding two inches before an effortless drop. Second drop was at an inch. Burn was slightly uneven at light but was easily and immediately corrected.

This is an excellent cigar. The construction is top shelf, something I've come to expect from all of Rocky Patel's lines. The tastes starts with spicy peppery notes that never turn bitter, gradually becoming more roasty and creamy. Another wonderful stick from a premium brand. Worth a good 45 relaxing minutes. Highly recommended.

From the company:

"The 90-rated Sun Grown brand is best described as medium-plus in body. With its lush 5-year-old Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, the ignited Sun Grown becomes a little bit spicy on the palate with a hint of pepperiness. A perfectly balanced blend from Honduras."
