Rocky Patel Super Ligero Robusto Pre Release

Rocky Patel Super Ligero Pre Release
Last weekend was Little Smoke 2014 put on by Legends of Fire at Northern Quest Casino. This Rocky Patel Super Ligero Pre Release was part of our VIP pack Friday night. Rocky explained the blend of this cigar, but I don't hear so well and I keep notes even worse. I do remember that it's a multi-national mix of tobaccos.

The Super Ligero is covered by an oily, stout Maduro colored wrapper. For a Maduro it has small veins, with tight, hard to see seams. From the foot the aroma to the nose is sweet and spicy. After clipping the triple cap the free draw has notes of ripe fruit and white pepper.

Once the cigar is burning I was amazed at the plumes of smoke it produced. The first flavors were a full bodied mix of spicy white pepper and ripe tree fruit. After a few puffs I could taste some raw sugar in the mix. As it burned on there were other flavor notes of toast, chocolate, espresso, leather and charcoal. The sixty minute burn finished with a full bodied peppery, burnt mocha mix that was quite tasty.

As I puffed away on this Super Ligero, I though to myself that it just might become my daily smoker. There is one pretty interesting thing to note about this cigar. Although it was full up front and full at the finish, I thought it smoothed out into the medium body range for most of the burn.

Famous Smoke Shop has the Rocky Patel Super Ligero shown on their site for $7.00 as a Robusto, but it's in back-order status. With any luck Cigar Train here in Spokane will carry these.
