Rocky Patel Decade Toro

The wrapper had burn issues on both. It would run and not self correct. Great pre-lite flavors, but after lighting the flavors are not smooth, but they are present. It's a stick I would smoke again, but nothing to get super excited about. I did like the mint notes as it is a new flavor I have not experienced in a cigar often.

I grew up in a Cuban family. Cigars remind me of significant events in my life such as my childhood, proposing to my wife and celebrating with friends. After mostly smoking Padron, I branched out and experienced the world of tobacco. My palate was surprised by the many flavors and blends the industry had to offer.
