Seasonal Smoke From Rocky Patel
Posted: May 7, 2008
This small-batch release is being made in a diminutive factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, called Tafenic, which is run by Abdel Fernandez. The cigar is made with Nicaraguan filler, an Ecuador wrapper grown from Sumatra seed, and a Cameroon binder, something new for Patel. He described the cigars as medium to full in body, with a spicy, peppery flavor.
"It just has enough spice," he said, "with almost some sweet undertones to it."
The cigar will come in four sizes: robusto, which measures five inches long by 50 ring gauge, and has a suggested retail price of $6.65; Toro, 6 1/2 inches by 52, $7.90; Toro Grande, 6 by 58, $8.50; and Lancero, 7 inches long by 42 ring, and retails for $7.30.
The cigars will be on sale within two weeks. They were previewed earlier this month at the Tobacconists Association of America meeting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
