Hello everyone, today I am reviewing another new cigar from Rocky Patel called the RP Xtreme Sumatra. I’m kind of excited because it seems that I am the first to review it. I could be wrong but I didn’t find any info on it from other cigar bloggers. Anyway I scored it from Famous Smoke Shop and that my friends is how it got into my hands. So with that said, I’m ready to give you my verdict on whether it will pass the mighty “Stew” test or not.
CIGAR MAKE UP:
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian Sumatra
BINDER & FILLER: Honduran / Nicaraguan & Honduran
Length/Ring: 5 x 52
Price: I paid about $12.00 for a five pack before taxes.
My Observations: Hats off to Rocky Patel on this creation because its well put together and awesome to look at. I say this because the cigar is sort of red in color that looks flawless when held in your hands. From the head to the foot there is absolutely no imperfections, which just goes to show you that Rocky is truly a stickler on quality control.
• On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots. Over all “A” in the grading department.
Cigar Label: Red, gold, white, black, and maroon with the trade mark “RP” on it.
Snip: Straight cut.
Pre-Draw: Very smooth with an espresso taste
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a light hint of pepper, sweet tasting espresso, and wood. The 2nd third continued with these flavors but seem to get sweeter as I puffed away. The last third finished just as it started but believe me when I tel you, this cigar is truly “awesome!’
Burn line: Even.
Liked it: Yes, it rocked!
Recommend it: Yes!
Hint: Look for a deal on it when Famous features it on their “Monster Deal”
Until Next Time
