Rocky Patel LB1

Rocky Patel LB1

Rocky Patel LB1 1600 900 Luca Cominelli

The name of Rocky Patel’s LB1 line stands for the name used in the factory to identify that exact blend in the making of the cigar. It uses Ligero from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras and Nicaraguan tobacco for the filler, grown on the Rocky Patel farms in Condega and Estelì.

The entire line consists of five sizes, including the Robusto, which is sold in 20 count boxes.

Rocky Patel LB! Robusto 2

Rocky Patel LB1 Robusto: the cold draw presents hints of cocoa and black pepper. The opening starts with roasted notes.

Rocky Patel LB1 Robusto 3

The first third continues on the roasted notes, which are joined by the earth. Strength is at a medium level (3/5).

In the central section, earth and roasted notes are confirmed. The smoke becomes slightly dry. Slowly a spicy component of white pepper makes its way through and becomes more and more marked. Hot spices are also perceptible. Strength remains constant (3/5).

In the final third, the earth disappears and is replaced by leather. The roasted notes are confirmed, and the spices, the latter, however, are less pronounced than the second third. Slight hints of balsamic herbs are perceptible in the finish, which considerably refreshes the smoke. Still pretty dry smoke. Strength grows slightly (3.5/5).

Overall, the Rocky Patel LB1 Robusto releases an intense smoke. The evolution in each third is perceptible. The balance between the flavors is excellent, especially in the final part, where the hints of balsamic herbs make the last part even more enjoyable. The only drawback is the rather dry smoke.
