Exceptional value from Rocky Patel.
Because of the meticulous quality control employed by Rocky Patel, as well as his use of only the finest, fully-fermented tobaccos, finding low-priced, long-filler, factory 1sts options sporting the RP emblem is no easy task. However, the re-released R4 line breaks all the rules! Hand-rolled in Honduras with 100% long-leaf, Rocky's R4 was made for value-hunters above all-else. His aim is true, and he certainly succeeded in what he set out to do: to introduce a new, affordable brand that enthusiasts could enjoy on an everyday basis without breaking budgets.
Medium to full in body, these dark, decadent handmades have a little kick to them in the best-possible way! Rocky's R4 represents all the characteristics of quality, consistency, and flavor that premium cigar lovers have come to expect from Mr. Patel's expansive portfolio—but without the hefty price-tag. This bundle is one of the best bargains at CIGAR.com and is an excellent choice if you want the most bang for your buck. Not only is the regular, everyday sale price right on the money, each R4 is also a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will leave a smile on your face and plenty of dough in your wallet!
Rocky Patel R4
Robusto (5.0"x50) Maduro: Rich from start to finish and burns very evenly. This smoke is very easy to draw and contains rich notes of coffee in which the flavor is consistent throughout. Corojo: Very spicy with many nuances of pepper. The aroma has few hints of spice and the cigar is surprisingly smooth for its strength.
Toro (6.0"x52) Maduro: Contains some acidic flavors and becomes increasingly stronger with each puff. The smoke is very creamy and has a chocolate aroma, but no chocolate flavors. This cigar has a slightly tight draw and provides a noticeable sweetness on the palate. Slightly uneven burn. Corojo: Noticeable spice immediately to the lips. The smoke is somewhat creamy but includes accented notes of pepper. Again, the burn is a bit tight and uneven.
Torpedo (6.0"x52) Maduro: This torpedo burns evenly from start to finish and has a very good draw. Cocoa nuances engulf the palate and this smoke is complex in comparison to the others. The construction is flawless and there is very little acidic content. Corojo: Very complex, especially towards the finish. Many earthy undertones arise from the peppery nuances and this cigar seems to be bland if not for the spice it produces. The smoke does not overwhelm the palate and never gets too strong.
Double Corona (7.5"x52) Maduro: The draw is very tight and the wrapper is slightly oily with veins protruding throughout. Some acidic flavors are experienced immediately and then it mellows out into a rich body, with notes of espresso. The ash is very dark and there is a subtle sweet aftertaste which also includes some charcoal flavors. Corojo: This cigar is very mellow at first and then increasingly becomes stronger with spice and pepper flavors that cling to the back of the throat. The burn is even and the draw is very easy. The pepper flavors increase inch by inch, and provide a very long finish.
