For whatever reason good cigars fall in and out of my smoking rotation all the time. I’m not completely sure why that happens, but it probably has something to do with all of the great cigars that are out there to try. Much is the case with the Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve (OWR) Corojo. This is a cigar I used to regularly smoke, however, in the last year of so I can’t remember picking one up. However, about a month ago I decided to pick a few up and rediscover what I used to like about this cigar.
The OWR is a wonderfully constructed cigar with a delicate vein structure. The wrapper is a medium shade of brown and has little more than a classic tobacco aroma. For this review I smoked the robusto which comes in at five inches long with a 54 ring gauge. What I find nice about this line of cigars is the soft box-press, which actually hides the fact that this cigar has a 54 ring gauge.
Time to break out the cutter and set fire to the end.
Name: Old World Reserve Corojo

The Rocky Patel OWR Corojo is a good cigar, I just wish they were a couple bucks cheaper. With that said, the $9.00 price point won’t keep me from buying more, it will just keep them out of my daily rotation. Getting to revisit a cigar like this is a treat when it’s as good as you remember. Although there is nothing special about the OWR that just makes me say wow, it is a consistent cigar that has never let me down. You can confidently throw your money down on the counter for a few of these cigars.
