Rocky Patel NRA Valedor Toro

This week I’m doing a review on a cigar that didn’t get a lot of fanfare at this years IPCPR when it was introduced. That cigar is the Rocky Patel NRA Valedor. This is supposed to be the official cigar of the NRA. I was excited to try this cigar as I’m a lifetime member of the NRA and I enjoy most Rocky Patel cigars. I couldn’t find much information on the cigar before the review, but I did find the blend information:

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan and Honduran
MSPR: $7.50

I smoked the sample I got from the show several weeks ago and my local Tinder Box finally got some in. My buddy, Shawn, was gracious enough to pick me up some. I was curious to see how the released cigars compared to the show sample. How did the cigar hold up? Was it a shot heard around the world or a misfire? Watch the video and find out.

Has any one complained about the video stopping than start again, stop, and start, this is not the first time that this has happened. Just thought I would ask, thanks.

Hey Swede,

No, no one has and I just watched it on 3 different computers. It could be a process running in the background of your computer or something taking up your network bandwidth. Check to see if your antivirus is running a scan while you were watching it. It can do that too.

Immediately after study some with the weblog posts on your website now, and I actually like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site list and will likely be checking back soon. Pls look at my web site too and let me know what you assume.
