Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Box-Pressed Toro: Quick Review

Rocky Patel Vintage 1990
This Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Toro is another stick from that 5 Rocky's for $12.00 sampler I picked up at Holts.com a few weeks back.

I see a nicely constructed cigar with an oily maduro colored wrapper. There is a nice sweet tobacco aroma from the foot and the free cold draw delivers a good blast of sweet spice.

The burning cigar starts out with medium body and flavors of cocoa, mild black pepper and burning grass. Further along there are other flavors of oak, bitter coffee that fades in and out, sweet cream and brown sugar. As the cigar draws to and end the full bodied finish has flavors of chocolate and toasted nuts.

Overall the cigar has an even slow burn, it smokes cool, has good flavors and the box-press holds its shape well.
