Rocky Patel Sun Grown

Continuing with the “Humidor Staple Series” that started with the Oliva Serie O, I have for you another cigar that finds its way into a lot of people’s humidors. The Rocky Patel Sun Grown is one of the cigars that hooked me on this hobby. As you will see in the video, things have not changed much over the years.

Today I have for you the 6.25″ x 52 Torpedo which is cloaked in a 5 year aged Ecuadorian Sun Grown Sumatra wrapper with a Nicaraguan Binder and a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos in the filler. Let’s find out how my old friend has been…

We must have started with the same “Best of the Best”-type sampler! I agree entirely on Olivia O and RP Sun… yup yup, good stuff (and doesn’t break the bank).

Nice looking cigar, thanks for the suggestion, I’ll be sure to try one out.

Had one the other day, great smoke!

Nice review Brian. One of the first cigars I had when I started smoking cigars and one I still enjoy. The torpedo is my favorite size.

Nice review Brian, always one of my favorites!

I love The RP Sun Grown, Olde World Reserve and Vintage 92. Rocky Patel is the man of his words….It is a great review.

Same thoughts as ‘dj’ comments. I have several of the Oliva O and RP Sun’s in my humidor and revisit with them periodically. Nice review on the RP Sun (and Oliva O). Both are full of flavor.

RP cigars seem to have run the gamet for me. I have smoked about 15 different ones, and not I have another one to try.

One of the Rocky’s I like and an absolute staple in the humidor. Was gifted a SG Fuerte by a friend and it’s also a great cigar.

This review made me dig up a few RP Sun Growns from my own humidor. It went real well with the rum and reminded me of why I always did like that smoke. I try to always keep some around.
