I first had this cigar at Highland Cigar Company last year when it was a newer release. Chai had me give it a whirl and see what’s what.
The short version about the RP Sun Grown Maduro is that. A Broadleaf wrapper is draped over dual binders and Nicaraguan filler. I expect some sweetness to come through, depending on Patel treated his Broadleaf wrappers.
The mainstay of this cigar is that the flavors start off with cocoa and spice. Construction is pretty spot on for this6X52 vitola. Hints of creaminess come through, along with pepper and cinnamon. The cigar feels light in my fingers but it’s well constructed enough that the ash hangs on for a good quarter inch. This is a more medium to full bodied cigar with a very eye appealing wrapper. Continuing on the simplicity, the band is also lacking in intricacies but that’s not a strike. Sometimes, simplicity is king.
I’l have more photos for this blog post later.
Overall, it’s a good addition to Rocky’s lineup.
