Rocky Patel turned 60 this year and celebrates the occasion with the aptly named Rocky Patel 60, which turned up a 93-point powerhouse in this issue of Cigar Insider. See which size in the vertical brand tasting impressed our panel of tasters, along with a high-scoring Cuban Montecristo, and a complete vertical of Perdomo’s Inmenso 70 brand, a line of gargantuan smokes, all of which are rolled in ultra-thick 70 ring gauges. Plus, we look at the new Ferio Tego series, a pair of cigars from Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott, who left Nat Sherman to branch out on their own. Cigar Aficionado Hall-of-Famer Ernesto Perez-Carrillo adds a slim new size to his La Historia line, which is made in the Dominican Republic, and we also smoke the newest 601 La Bomba Warhead from Espinosa, which shows power and balance with its vibrant all-Nicaraguan blend.
