The Rocky Patel
Olde World Reserve
The Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Maduro Torpedo is a cigar after my own heart. With a simple structure and a very dark wrap that stills maintains a light feel, this cigar smokes like a dream. It’s best lit by slow-burning matches if you can get them; light evenly while slowly rotating the cigar to get a nice even burn. On the first puffs you’ll taste the effort the Nicaraguan tobacco farmers took to bring you this amazing flavor of rich soil and heavy oak. There’s just the slightest taste of coconut, almost undetectable if you aren’t looking for it, on the end of your exhalation. While you stand downwind and bask in its manly scent, this cigar has a strong smoke trail like a .357 magnum firing into the dark of night. A truly strong cigar—not by size or weight, but by flavor alone. Just as behind every great man there is a great woman, behind this cigar you must have a fine bourbon to truly arouse the contrast of flavors between cigar and whiskey.
