Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro No 2 By Cigar Aficionado

Posted by Ana Cuenca on May 04, 2017

Rocky Patel Sun Grown enter to the market more than 10 years ago. This line grows popular to become one of the pillars of the Rocky Patel lines. Rocky has been known as a hustler and a marketer genius but with the experience and years in the making, he manages to become one of the best cigar manufacturers nowadays. Last year he rethought the Rocky’s Sun Grown brand and created a totally new blend with its base on this one. This time he experimented with a Maduro version of his Sun Grown.

The initial blend was made in Honduras. It now emigrated to Nicaragua's Patel new factory TraviCusa. The new wrapper was now a dark and oily Connecticut broadleaf and Rocky baptist it as the new Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro. This new version is one of the fuller-bodied cigars that has brought out from the Nicaraguan soil.

Even though the original version used also a dark wrapper, the new blend has a more tasteful, stronger and complex flavor profile. To fully differentiate both blends, Rocky used now a truck-pressed format, that gives to the cigar a more elegant appearance. This format makes possible that all the Nicaraguan tobaccos used as binder and fillers press a most bolder flavor. Also, a variance in the packaging and even the ring label is a more harmony and attractive format.

The whole new line was created in five sizes, defined as Robusto with a 5 x 50Toro 6 1/2 x 52Sixty 6 x 60Lancero 7 1/2 x 38 and a petite Belicoso 5 1/2 x 52. The cigar caught the full attention of the audience in late 2016 when Cigar Aficionado magazine ranked it with one of the higher numbers ever, 95 points. Cigar Aficionado 2016 Top 25 cigar of the Year No 2 was a beautiful and deserved nomination.

As Rocky Patel himself said in one of his Instagram videos: "HARD WORK PERSISTENCE and PASSION can get you to the top". Shop Now Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro cigars at Cuenca Cigars online.
