The firmness of the cigar allowed me to chew on it a bit more than usual which i enjoyed. Aroma excellent throughout. ” -Adam B. (Bushboy)

Editorial: Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival – 2015

The Rocky Mountain Cigar festival is always a great event with good people, and awesome vendors. It has been growing steadily since it’s inception in 2011. Unfortunately I was deathly ill last year and wasn’t able to attend and see the new venue. This year I was feeling great and ready to smoke, and it didn’t disappoint. Joined by our panelist Jack, we conquered almost the entire festival.

Blind Cigar Review: Rocky Patel | Super Ligero Robusto (Prerelease)

“This was one of the 2 or 3 best cigars I have reviewed for BMP this year. The flavors hit me just right, the smoke was wonderfully smooth and creamy, and it was about as low maintenance a stick as you could ever ask for. Based on smoking this one stick alone, I would go out and buy a box tomorrow. I am anxiously awaiting the reveal.” -Dave (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: Rocky Patel | Catch 22 Toro (Prerelease)

“I really enjoyed this cigar quite a bit. It had a mellow and smooth smoke for almost the entire time, never harsh and never bitter. I kept thinking while I was smoking that this would be a great late spring or summer smoke because it was so bright tasting. It had a fresh upbeat taste that was medium-full in flavor, so it would be a great way to end the day. Nicely constructed too made it a big hit for me.” -Paul (pmr1010)
