Rocky Patel

Hey guys. I have a friend who is always smoking Rocky Patels. I wanted to buy him a 5er or something, but there are so many, I don't know what they would call their best. I've tried the Decade and Edge. What is their best ?

    In my opinion one of his newest releases the RP May 28, 2011 Unica. It was released in a limited 500 boxes of 100. So much better than the Decades, Edge, and Cameroon that I like.

    Patel Bro's is a great smoke and paired really well with hot chocolate, so perfect for the winter months. Also Olde World Maduro was great.

    I like the OWR Corojo and Maduro as well as the Vintage 1990. I like the Decade too, but everyone talks about the blend being changed and not nearly as good anymore. Not sure if I've had the old or new blend.

    If your friend is already a fan, ( as I am) he would probably like the Vintage series 1990, 1992, and maybe the 1999. I am not a fan of the 1999.. The new 2003 is really nice as well. He would enjoy the Decade, and Edge.... and I do like the Patel Brothers cigar. There is a Patel Brothers "Next" cigar, that is interesting too. Best is a matter of opinion.
    As a reference point I did not like the 1961 though. But, I tried it because of the many good experiences I had with Patel's stuff.

    Rocky Patel vintage 1990 and 1992 I really like......Edge was OK but really love the 90 & 92.

    Thanks guys. I've had the edge and decade and a few of the others, and I think that's what he smokes, but I was perhaps looking for one of their over-the-top cigars, if they exist. I'll probably look into the 1992 Vintage and, if I can find them, something from the newer lines.
    Always thankful for the input BOTLs.
    Thanks

    I really enjoyed the Patel Bro

    Not really a big fan of RP stuff besides the Edge Maduro (almost black!) and the 1992 Vintage. My buddy seems to like them a lot and he prefers the NRA tribute stick over any he's had so far.

    I's say a big thumbs up to the Olde World maduro, but I thought the Patel Bros was just another good everyday cigar. The MOW kicks it's ass.

    If you can find it, the rp valedor. Great stick IMO.

    I'm surprised nobody has put forth the Sun Grown, RP's best stick in my opinion. The Decade used to be awesome and the OWR Maduro is great but its been a long time since I've had one of those. The Sun Grown has always been solid, I'd definitely put one of those in there.

    Edge Sumatra, Patel Bros and Nording are my top three Patel blends
