FrontRunners: Select Smoke

Many of the latest cigar blends intimidate the occasional smoker with their heavy body and tongue-biting spiciness, but the Rocky Patel Reo offers a more accessible way for smokers to challenge their palates. The Reo is one of this year’s smoothest new smokes, providing a gratifyingly bold taste without the unrelenting peppery character exhibited by many of its peers. Its Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos fill a Costa Rican wrapper that has been aged for five years. Box pressing slims the profile of the 51⁄4 x 54 torpedo, which is the most elegant of the four available sizes. ($118 for a box of 20) rockypatel.com
