Welcome back to a super fast review of the Rocky Patel Mulligans cigar. I wanted to get something posted for today and since I have smoked over five of these sticks, this is the one that got picked.
You will notice in the video that I may not have a chance to finish the whole thing but like I said, these are pretty consistent and I am very positive I can go on previous ones for the last bits if needed.
Starting off, this cigar is a Holt’s exclusive . It is available in five sizes with the torpedo being backordered (how does an exclusive mistake cigar get backordered unless they are going to keep making them?) and the Fat Shot (6×60) is the one I am smoking right now
Appearance of the cigar is normal with nothing that really stands out. Most of these sticks are very nice looking and do not remind you of a bundle cigar at all, at least in the appearance.
Snipped the cap, lit it up and was met with a woody taste with a tiny bit of a spice.
Leather came in to the picture after a half an inch or so into the cigar.
Around the halfway point and the flavors are still pretty basic like in the beginning but more of a natural tobacco has come through. Still a decent cigar for the money but don’t expect a Fifteenth Anniversary in a <$3 stick. Coming down to a little past the bands and we have to go I am told. Best way to describe this would be to say it is a little plain. Main flavors travel throughout but never blossom in to something that envelops your palette with flavorful goodness. Easily a golf course cigar. Most people will shy away from this, especially those of you that can afford to smoke $8+ cigars 4+ times a day or those of you that only smoke a couple per week, but I would not hesitate to try some other sizes to find the sweet spot in the line to smoke. For a lower cost Rocky Patel it isn't bad. I still prefer the Cameroon Especial over this though. I apologize for the rushed look and feel of the video and writeup but the wife is off and we were running around (like I said above, I may not even be able to finish this cigar before we are off again), plus I do not have a set smoking room and recording in the living room while she is home just leads to disaster. I am trying to find a place to set up in the basement permanently so I will always have a place to record whether she is home or not.

Thanks for another review. Always interested in looking for new everyday sticks, and I can see trying these if I find them on sale. $55 for a bundle cigar seems steep to me. Don’t think I ever ordered from Holt’s before, either. Keep ’em coming, Mike!
You gave me one of these at old world. I’ll have to try it soon, such a big ring size it maybe a yard gar!!! Nice review.
Not sure why, but this cigar doesn’t appeal to me. But thanks for the review …and for keepin’ on keepin’ on!
I guess it’s your “blah”
That makes me say “nah”.
Thanks for the review, though!
Hey Mike, have you ever considered including you wife in one of your reviews? Maybe it’d be cool to get a his/her perspective in there. She might even allow you to smoke in the living room more often.
Wow. They have keyboards in crayon, now?
Hi Mike, good one, did a good job for a short review,do watch you every day, enjoy them, thanks.
Nice review Mikey. I haven’t been down to holts in a few weeks but I’ve never seen them in the actual store
Nice quick review Mike, what was the hurry? Getting a hair cut for once? Not sure I am going to try to go and find one of these, but who knows.
