Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo – Cigar Review

Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo

This is a cigar review of a Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo by Rocky Patel Cigars. The size chosen for this review is the Toro. This cigar has a Honduran corojo wrapper and Nicaraguan fillers. This is a medium bodied smoke experience and prices around $9.50 at your local shop.

Construction/Appearance:

This Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo is a nice matted light brown in color with tiny veins and nearly invisible seams. This smoke is box pressed. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Nuts and Cedar

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Rich Nutty notes 

After Toast:

First third – ​Nuts, subtle cedar and spice kick this smoke off with a richness on the palate that’s amazing. This is a medium bodied smoke thus far. The burn is sharp and ash holds through the third. 

Second Third – The nutty notes carry over and get real buttery here. What a nice note on the palate. The burn remains sharp and ash falls at the halfway point. 

Final Third – Much of the same in this third with that rich buttery nutty note just hammering the palate. This is such a great flavor you don’t mind the lack of change in the transition. The burn remains sharp. 

Suggested Pairing:

Scotch – Aberfeldy – Turns that buttery nut note into buttered popcorn. 

Wine – Stags Leap Karia Chardonnay

Overall Experience:

We were able to get this one at the Big Smoke Florida 2019 directly from Rocky Patel himself. This Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo is a nice flavored simple smoke. The buttery nut like component is so good you’re happy it never fades through a transition. A true medium bodied smoke that made for a great Sunday night in preparation for another work week.
