Review: Rocky Patel 1961

Cigar Aficionado gives this cigar 90 rating. I regret I can’t be nearly as generous. So named to celebrate Rocky Patel’s birth year, the 1961 is anything but a party.

While the light is quick and the draw smooth and slinky, there is virtually no ash hold; the stick had me constantly reaching for my ash tray!

In the end, it was more enjoyable to watch the ‘gar burn than to actually smoke it.
