ROCKY PATEL - DECADE CAMEROON ROBUSTO
Size: Robusto (50 x 5)
Strength: Medium to Full
While working on new blends at the factory and taste-testing tobaccos, Rocky made a startling discovery. To taste the new crop of Cameroon wrapper they wanted to test it with a control they knew very well. So they passed the Cameroon wrapper over top Decade’s filler and binder. Instantly, they knew they had something special. A whole new taste profile that might even trump the original. The use of an Authentic Cameroon wrapper leads to a smooth, complex, and very well-balanced profile that’s layered with sweet and smoky notes of wood, caramel, coffee, and roasted nuts. In a word, exceptional.
The Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon becomes the third wrapper to be used on the Decade blend. The wrapper is Cameroon and the binder and filler are from Nicaragua. The Cameroon wrapper, prized for its unique sweetness and earthy undertones, is carefully cultivated in Africa and are a commodity enjoyed too rarely. Rocky kept the binder and filler tobaccos of the original Decade a secret, and the same mysteriously delicious tobaccos are utilized in this Cameroon version. This is definitely a Rocky Patel cigar that cigar enthusiast and novice can enjoy!
"Though first puffs of this dark pyramid are sweet with coconut and vanilla bean, the smoke picks up some savory elements of leather and a bit of earth."
