Rocky Patel's famous Vintage line gets a new sibling…
There are few cigar brands as popular as the Rocky Patel Vintage Series. Since their inception they have been the source for many 90+ ratings, and they have become a fixture in humidors all over the country. The secret to Rocky's success is in his blends, where he spends years balancing each leaf to make the perfect smoke.
A Cameroon wrapper is a welcomed addition to the illustrious Vintage line. And, in typical Rocky fashion, this isn't your run-of-the-mill Cameroon wrapper. This beauty is aged for 8 years before it's wrapped around a tasty blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. Medium-full in body, this gem is plump with flavors of leather, cedar, spice, and a hint of sweetness on the finish. Another amazing blend from Rocky, and a perfect addition to a prestigious line.

Customer Reviews of “Rocky Patel Vintage '03 Cameroon”
Vintage 2003 begins with a perfectly balanced blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers that offer a wonderful aroma and flavor. The icing on the cake is a Cameroon wrapper, aged for eight years, which adds a nice hint of sweetness with some lighter notes of pepper and cedar. Enjoying this cigar with your favorite Octoberfest style lager will make for a great evening on any fall day.
Robusto (5.5”x50): A really great start to testing the blend. The size is very conducive to the blend and the rich, semi-sweet Cameroon wrapper shines the most here.
Churchill (7.0”x48): Definitely the surprise of the bunch. The 48 ring gauge allowed for a ton of flavor and it only got stronger as the cigar burned. While it’s a long smoke, you’ll enjoy it right down to the nub.
Torpedo (6.25”x52): The shorter size seems to work better with the 52 ring gauge for some reason. Flavors seem to be more pronounced and this is a solid hour and half smoke.
Toro (6.5”x52): The fatter 52 ring gauge allows for a cooler smoke than the 50 ring gauge. Flavors are nice but slightly muted.
Sixty (6.0”x60): Blend tastes very watered-down with this size. Easily the size with the least flavor in the line, yet, we could see this being a nice blend for the golf course due to the long smoking time and light flavors.
