I was able to surreptitiously obtain this target with the help of my asset on Twitter @doc8466. Thanks for sending this character safely for me to interrogate! Oh, and accompanying this target was some libation that I have since consumed. Be jealous.
This target vexed me. So much so that I shaved its head with my Spy Cigar Scissors and lit its foot on fire. I figured the square disguise was just a ploy to piss me off.
Square. Dark Maduro wrapper. Solid construction. Small veins. Sweet “barn-ish” scent.
As this target started speaking, the whole experience became… edgy. Pun intended. Perfect draw, weird feel in the mouth though. That’s what she said. Fantastic burn. Nice razor thin burn line. Marbly, strong ash.
Sweet Maduro flavors. Medium bodied mouth feel. Short finish. Lacks complexities found in some Nicaraguan tobacco blends. Weird room aroma. Boringly enjoyable.
I have an ambivalence towards Rocky Patel blends. In short, I love certain blends and I loathe others. Rocky Patel I Press lacks the flavors I have come to expect and enjoy from Rocky, especially in a Maduro cloak. It’s just not enough. I need more results to put together a proper interrogation, and this cigar never rallied in the flavor department. I rallied in the flavor department once, and security escorted me out.
