Characteristics The ruggedly textured, box-pressed Costa Rican 5-year-old dark and oily maduro wrapper plays well against the Nicaraguan filler and binder. The result is a rough-hewn yet civilized flavor, somewhat akin to early Colonial furniture. There is also a slightly milder version with a beautiful Rosado Nicaraguan corojo wrapper. Insider’s Tip Be sure to remove the paper wrapped around the foot of the cigar before lighting; it is there for decoration, not to be smoked. There are four shapes, with our favorite being the maduro 5 x 54 torpedo. By the way, the “RP” brand on the band stands for Rocky Patel, the man behind the cigar.
