After Toast:

First Third – This cigar starts off with a spicy leather like note mixed with salt and oak. A few minutes in a nice full array of perfumed cedar notes mingle in and leather moves to the finish. The burn starts slightly wavy and ash holds.

Second Third – Nuts and spicy oak take the stage here with a caramel like note beginning on the finish.  At the end of the third those cedar notes come back into the fold. The burn turns sharp and ash fell at the half way point.

Final Third – Cedar mixes with that spicy notes in this third and earthy notes take over the finish. The burn remains sharp.

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Glenlivet 18

Wine – Pardon& Fils Beaujolais

Overall Experience:

The Rocky Patel Sun Grown is always a classic go to smoke for us here at Toast and Vine. Lots of full bodied pronounced flavors on the profile and a nice slow burner make for a great smoke experience.
