Smoke Notes Cigar Reviews: Rocky Patel Super Ligero Robusto

Today marks the beginning of a brand new  blog feature: Smoke Notes– short and to-the-point cigar reviews of the latest sticks to hit our shelves.

In this inaugural edition of Smoke Notes we take a look at Rocky Patel‘s latest full-bodied monster: the Rocky Patel Super Ligero.

 

rocky_super_rob_stickRocky Patel Super Ligero Robusto (5×50)

W: St. Augustine Habano
B: Habano (unspecified)
F: Nicaraguan and Costa Rican triple ligero.

Factory: Plasencia’s El Paraiso, Danlí, Honduras

Rocky’s new Super Ligero was concocted to be the brand’s most full-bodied offering yet, packing a beefy blend of triple ligero tobaccos into a sweet and spicy habano leaf for a strong smoke that packs an uber-rich flavor punch.

 

 

 

 

Notes:

  • Both burn and draw were absolutely perfect on this robusto, I honestly can’t think of any way they could improve on it.
  • The spice was indeed strong on this one, but loads of tasty flavor nuances kept it from being a “one-trick pony” pepper-bomb.
  • The smoke itself was plentiful, dense, and “chewy.”
  • This stick has the kind of interesting full-bodied flavor and strength to draw a whole new audience into the world of Rocky Patel cigars.

Flavor Report:

Red pepper, vegetal notes, fruity sweetness, cream, black pepper, cocoa, white pepper, cinnamon, jalapeno, smoky wood, chicory

Overall:

8/10 – Highly recommended for smokers who prefer full strength and complex taste.
