Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Royale

Rocky Patel Royale Cigar


Today we review the Rocky Patel Royale Robusto which is 5" long with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. This is a nine to ten dollar cigar for a single and $160 to $180 for a box of 20 at your local retailer and came out in September, 2013.

Patel and his manufacturer, Tabacalera Tavicusa, spent six years to develop this blend from Nicaragua and Honduras and is marketed as a box-pressed medium to full strength smoke. Box pressed simply means the cigar is square rather than round. I found the strength of the cigar to be more on the medium side rather than a full-bodied. The wrapper is well rolled and pressed with a fairly thick leaf and makes for an excellent presentation.

I found the cigar to have strong earth tones with hints of perhaps almond and a spice or two I could not pin down. It was a very smooth smoke and was overall of good quality. That said, I feel the price point for this particular cigar is a dollar or two excessive and would have no qualms buying a box of 20 to get the price per stick down to a level commensurate with that quality.

Rocky Patel cigars have an excellent reputation and they have a broad range available to the public. Patel cigars are always easy to enjoy and relax with your favorite cocktail and this particular cigar may be better suited with an espresso or cappuccino than your favorite Scotch. Overall I am happy to recommend the cigar as a quality smoke and an excellent way to spend an hour with other cigar lovers or just relaxing by yourself.
