Smoke Notes: Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andres

rocky_pro_saRocky Patel Prohibition San Andres (6 1/2×52)

W: San Andres, Mexican
B: Nicaraguan
F: Nicaraguan

Factory: Tavicusa, Esteli, Nicaragua

The Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andres cigar combines binder and filler tobaccos from Rocky’s farms in Nicaragua with a San Andres Mexican wrapper leaf. Uniquely packaged in Mason jars inspired by the moonshine bootleggers of the U.S. Prohibition era, the name and theme of Rocky’s Prohibition is a perfectly timed statement on the FDA’s attack on premium cigars.





  • The cigar had a powerful, earthy aroma before lighting.rocky prohibition c
  • Smoke output started out as average, and then increased greatly during the course of the session. By the end I was surrounded by a thick, delicious fog.
  • The second 3rd of the cigar was so smooth that I nearly forgot its formidable strength. A spice-laden retrohale quickly reminded me.
  • The cigar I smoked for this review was provided as a sample from Rocky Patel (Hence the plain “tester” band on the cigar.)
  • All of the tasting notes of this cigar were playing off of a dominant, central earthiness.
  • Prohibition is offered in a single size only: 6 1/2 x 52
  • Strength of this cigar maxed out at a high medium.


Flavor Report: Earth, Black Pepper, Molasses, Peatiness, White Pepper, Baking Cocoa, Meatiness, Mesquite, Smoky Cedar, Brown Sugar



7/10 – Rich, nuanced taste and an exemplary burn and draw make the Rocky Patel Prohibition San Andres a great choice for those looking to move up from beginner smokes to one with a bit more depth in character.
