Rocky Patel Renaissance

Characteristics An almost perfume-like bouquet and a rich, sophisticated smoke that sizzles at the top end of medium-well. Insider's Tip A limited-production cigar, only 6,000 boxes are produced annually. The dark, oily Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper has been aged for four years, and is combined with a rich Nicaraguan filler and a binder from Jalapa. The 5½ x 50 Robusto is our favorite. Note: Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
