By now, Rocky Patel is a name synonymous with incredible premium cigar, but the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Cigar was the very first cigar to bear his name! As one would expect from a Rocky Patel release, this is a well-balanced smoke with an even burn and impeccable construction.
The 1990 Vintage is made up of a wonderfully aged 12-year-old Honduran Maduro wrapper, build around a blend of 8-year-old Nicaraguan and Dominican Ligero fillers. The result is a mild to medium bodied, smooth and balanced, cigar with wonderful notes of nuts and caramel. As any cigar aficionado will tell you that when Rocky blends a cigar, it tends to lean towards the sophisticated palate, and may not hot the right notes with the novice smoker.
Rocky says that when blending tobaccos from various regions, it takes greater skill and knowledge, but the result is the symmetry and marrying of all these flavors to produce a great tasting cigar. “I blend every cigar myself. It's time-consuming and painstaking. I'll literally go through a hundred blends until I settle into a palate winner. Most of my blends are a year in the making.”
The Rocky Patel 1990 Vintage received an epic 92-rating from Cigar Aficionado in October 2004, and made it into the Cigars of The Year list in 2004 & 2006!

Way too Strong - Ben on 10/01/2018

I had high hopes for these but I could not get through one of them. Not to my liking.
