Rocky Patel Vintage 1990

Julio The Perfect Trifecta

In search of a damn good cigar? Look no further! Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 was made in Danli, Honduras and boasts a gorgeous Honduran Broadleaf wrapper that’s been aged for 12 years. It’s been featured in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year multiple times with impressive ratings of 92 & 93! Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 is more than just a good cigar. This wonderfully smooth, oily, and creamy stick delivers with hints of sweet cocoa and coffee. The perfect option at any time of the day.

I enjoyed this with my father and we had nothing but great conversations and laughs as time passed while enjoying a nice glass of whiskey, on Father’s Day. The Honduran Broadleaf wrapper appeared a bit intimidating at first, and we automatically thought this would be a full-bodied, in-your-face cigar. Oh were we wrong! This beautifully boxed-pressed cigar was amazing from the moment we lit it up to the moment we put it down; “the perfect medium-bodied cigar we were looking for”. I like to call this Vintage 1990 the perfect trifecta, because it’s Dominican and Nicaraguan blended long-fillers combined with the Honduran Broadleaf wrapper is simply perfection.
