Rocky Patel Xtreme Sumatra Robusto

Rocky Patel Xtreme Sumatra Robusto (5x50)

Video review HERE.

This cigar is available at Famous Smoke Shop. The Rocky Patel Xtreme has an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers.

The cigar had a good test draw. At light up the initial flavors were sweet citrus and almonds with coffee.

After a minute or two the flavors developed into semi sweet grapefruit notes and raw almonds with pepper. The finish was long with almonds.

A couple inches in there were some espresso notes. The other flavors remained the same. The finish has some vanilla notes.

At the midpoint there was some richness developing. There were some subtle vanilla notes. I would like the cigar to have more richness that it does.

In the final stages the cigar sums up with coffee, grapefruit citrus, almond, and sweetness. The pepper remained good. All in all a good cigar but I would like for it to have more richness.

Score: 86
