One more day guys…one more day and its Friday and the start to another weekend. I’m in my Thursday spot reviewing the newest addition to the Rocky Patel Seasonal Collection in the Summer Collection 2009. I’m pretty new to Rocky’s Seasonal Collection having smoked the Winter 2009 and Spring 2009 so I can’t compare the 2009 Summer to the summer version from last year.
Video runs around 12 minutes and while I’m pretty tame in the video, I think the Summer 2009 is the best of the Seasonal Collection that I’ve had. I think it bring a wonderful mocha flavor with an undertone of a “zesty” balance of flavor. I don’t know how exactly to describe zesty. Some I’ve spoken to describe it as “fruity” and I can see that. I guess by “zesty” I mean a combination of sweet/spicey flavor with a sharp, clean finish. I don’t know if that makes sense.
Wanna do me a solid? Get a hold of a Series JJ by Don Pepin Garcia and smoke it on Wednesday, July 22nd. July 22nd is the “2nd Annual Smoke a JJ for JJ Day”. I plan to light up a JJ or two on what would be my Little Robusto’s 2nd birthday. So grab a Series JJ and join me as I remember, better days.
Barry from acigarsmoker.com rated it a 93 and I have to say, that Barry’s review is spot on.
