Thanks to everyone for voting last week on this cigar. I first tried the Decade a few months ago and wasn’t all that impressed, in fact, I thought it was pretty offensive to be carrying the Rocky Patel name. I’m glad that my first impression didn’t make me write off the Decade all together and your votes inspired me to try it again.
The 3-4 Decades I smoked leading up to this review were nothing but pleasure to smoke. All the great qualities and flavors that over the years have lured me to Rocky Patel over and over again are all present in the Decade. Not to sound too much like a loser but the Decade is like going on a journey of Rocky Patel cigars. Its a slow starter, nothing but the usual natural tobacco flavors similar to what you get when smoke many of the Indian Tabac stuff. But then you’re met with a lot of familiar flavors that each have their own part of the cigar and transition nicely from one to the next. From the RP lines of the Olde World Reserve, Sun Grown, Vintage and I’m sure there is a bit of The Edge in there as well all can be found when smoking the Decade by Rocky Patel.
