Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andreas

Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andreas
With a toasty cocoa flavor mix, top notch construction and a nice burn time, this Prohibition, San Andreas is another winner from Rocky Patel. Let's take a closer look and find out why. 

I picked this cigar up from Cigar Train a while back and just picked up the Broadleaf the other day so I'll review it soon.

This Prohibition is covered by a stout, toothy and oily maduro colored San Andreas wrapper. Checking aromas from the foot there's a nice note of cocoa, while the free draw has nuances of oak combined with spicy cedar. 

Once the cigar is toasted and burning there are initial medium bodied flavors of cocoa and leather. As the burn progresses nuances of spicy cedar, toast and toasted nuts join in. 

The burn's a bit wavy in the first half, but it corrects itself by the midpoint and the second half has lots and lots of chocolate in the flavor mix. The Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andreas finishes its sixty-five minute burn with my favorite flavor of burnt mocha mixed with toast. 

Overall I really enjoyed this San Andreas and I'm excited to give the Broadleaf version a spin. Try this stick out, I think you'll like it too.
