Rocky Patel - 15th Anniversary - Torpedo
Shape: box pressed torpedo
Length: 6 1/8"
Ring size: 52
Approx. cost: $11
Cigar Aficionado Rating: 93
Bdawg says: Cigar Aficionado this cigar as their #6 cigar of 2011. This is the highest rank that Rocky Patel has ever received in C.A.'s yearly rankings. I liked it a lot, but I still prefer RP's Vintage 1990 Churchill.
This cigar has a beautiful well constructed, oily, smooth, Hershey bar colored wrapper. The draw is easy, producing a good amount of flavorful smoke and a tight gray ash. The flavor is full of coffee beans and leather. The burn is slow and even.
