Quick Smoke: Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo Limited Edition 2008 ‘A’

9 Jun 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Some cigars sit in your humidor for years unsmoked. In this case, it’s because I rarely have time to smoke an ‘A’ size, which is generally 8-9 inches long with a ring gauge of 50. Thanks to my email account, I can see that I picked up a “Rocky Patel Limited Edition 2008 ‘A’ Sampler” (16 cigars) back in April 2009 for about $5 a cigar, though I’m sure the suggested retail price was quite a bit more. The decade of age hasn’t mellowed this full-bodied smoke, which was subsequently cancelled only to be brought back in 2018. The cigar features an especially oily (age may be a factor here) Honduran Corojo wrapper around Nicaraguan binder and filler. The flavors are heavy in leather and oak with light spice.

Verdict = Buy.
