New Stock at Got Cigars? in Decatur, Georgia

Over the last few weeks we’ve picked up some new stock. Some of the new cigars include:

Rocky Patel San Andreas – a robust, full bodied cigar deserving of a review all on its own. Coming soon (the review, not the cigar!)

Last Call by AJ Fernandez – a 45 minute smoke designed to win the night. Semi-sweet flavors mixed with light wood and a great draw provide the way for closing time.

Last Call Maduro by AJ Fernandez – the same as above, but with added sweetness.

Avo South American

Avo Nicaragua Syncro South American Ritmo

Syncro Ritmo – an earthy, but complex cigar, only we have them in the Robusto sized, as well as the torpedo largo.  The box press only adds to the classy feel of this amazing cigar.

Brick House and Brick House Maduro – both are outstanding, inexpensive value cigars from JC Newman, but don’t let the word “value” fool you.  This cigar is medium to full bodied, and in the natural, has a decent amount of wood and earth, while the maduro picks up with some spice and sweetness.

Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Patel Bros.

One of the newest cigar makers the industry at the time when I first picked up smoking cigars was Rocky Patel. He’d left his career as a lawyer and found a much better following and probably more success in the cigar industry by making his own cigars. Most folks probably know him for the Edge, a full flavored vitola only for “professional smokers.” Quality on these cigars was astounding and the price was unbeatable.

Shortly after the release of the Edge, Patel launched the 10 year and 12 year blends which were an instant hit due to consistent flavor and great rankings from Cigar Aficionado. Personally I tend to like the 12 year 1990 in a Churchill form for maximum smoking pleasure.

I had the opportunity to try out the Rocky Patel Patel Bros yesterday and I have to say it’s a wonderful stick. A gorgeous dark maduro Pennsylvanian broadleaf wrapper adds flavor and power to this unique Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar starts off with robust, spicy and somewhat overpowering flavors that meld into dark roasted coffee notes.
The second third of this cigar mellows even further with toasty earth and mild spice while allowing a perfect draw throughout. The ash held on for about a half inch, indicating flawless construction. A medium to full finish on the palate reminded me of the Casa Magna blend, only a little more complex.

For those interested, this is the first cigar released that was a collaboration between Rocky and his brother Nish. The two for some time wanted to create a special cigar and this is definitely one that continues the legacy of Rocky Patel.

We’ll cover this cigar and a little more about it on an upcoming episode of Pure Indulgence, found only on Radio Dentata. Don’t forget that we did have the opportunity to speak with Tim Wong of Rocky Patel for almost an hour and as soon as the podcast link is up, you’ll find it first here!
