Rocky Patel Cuban Blend

I picked up these from another site. I think they are made by RP for them exclusively. It had a jet black wrapper and reminded me of the Partagas Black Label a lot. I was impressed with this stick and will look for some more. If you run across some give them a try.

    Rocky makes about a billion "exclusive" brands for B&Ms....hence the "Royal Vintage"..."Ocean Club.." etc. I really wish he would just concentrate on a smaller amount of cigars and make those taste more amazing. I kinda get tired of hearing..."Another exclusive blend by Rocky Patel....only sold here!"

    I know what you mean Krieg, but this one was actually better than most and I got it cheap. I just tried some RP Puro Cubano's (same deal) but so far I do not get the same fuzzy feeling about these. Jury is still out.

    I've tried the Cuban blend and I seem to recall enjoying it, been a while though and I do have some camping in the humi...maybe I ought to bust one out and see if I still enjoy it.

    how was the burn? I had some royal vintages, and every one of them had burn issues. I kinda think someitmes that these "exclusive" brands aren't put through the highest QA check as his regular sticks.

    The Cuban Blend was not bad on burn, the Puro Cubano not so good. One came unwrapped during the burn cycle. I suspect you are right about the quality.
