Rocky’s first ten years in the business, the 6 1/2″ x 52 Rocky Patel Decade Toro cigar might also be the pinnacle of his achievements. By now everyone is familiar with the story of how Rocky left his lucrative gig as an entertainment lawyer to pursue his passion for fine, hand-crafted smokes. Working tirelessly to craft cigars he knew would appeal to post-Cigar Boom smokers, his efforts culminated in a number of 90+ rated cigars including fan-favorites The Edge Corojo and Maduro plus the phenomenal 1990 and 1992 Vintage lines. Seeing his ten years of hard work finally paying off, Patel took the opportunity to create a secret blend of filler and binder tobaccos and layered them beneath a rare Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. And so the Decade was born.
Shiny, oily, and very finely veined, the dark Sumatra wrapper shows a bit of tooth and smells of soft cedar. With a light boxed press that enhances the smooth draw, the Rocky Patel Decade Toro cigar presents itself as world-class cigar.
Perfection takes time. For the Rocky Patel Decade, it’s the perfect blend 10 years in the making. The Decade showcases a rare, gorgeous Sumatran wrapper surrounding a secret blend featuring only the finest tobaccos in the world. The result is nothing short of breathtaking. Complexity, balance, and elegance have earned the Rocky Patel Decade a stellar rating of 95 points – an instant classic.
