Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro

Rocky Patel released a maduro version of its full-bodied Sun Grown line that features a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper in 2015 called the Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro. The cigar is made at Rocky Patel’s TAVICUSA factory in Esteli, Nicaragua whereas the original Rocky Patel Sun Grown was made in Honduras. It also has a different blend altogether from the original Rocky Patel Sun Grown.

Cigar Aficionado gave the Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto a very high 95 rating making it the 2016 #2 Cigar of the Year noting it an exemplar of the fuller-bodied blends coming out of Nicaragua today.

From Cigar Aficionado: “The first Sun Grown was a dark cigar to begin with, but this more modern version has surpassed the original in every respect—it’s darker, it’s stronger and it’s more complex. The cigars are also trunk-pressed, giving them an attractive appearance that hints at the bold blend of Nicaraguan tobacco under the broadleaf wrapper—and they harmonize beautifully, imparting earthy, nutty notes and bittersweet chocolate with the sweeter properties of the wrapper. Astute observers will notice the new packaging as well. Both band and box have their own unique design to adequately give these cigars their own identity.”
