The 5 1/2 by 50 corona gorda is made with a little-used leaf, a broadleaf tobacco planted in Honduras, in a field in the Talanga Valley owned by U.S. Cigar Sales.

    First cigar I ever nubbed. I liked the <i>Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Robusto</i> so much I bought a box. Nice draw, long white ash, smooth and earthy you can't go wrong with a Rocky.

    I love most all of the <i>Rocky Patel Vintage cigar</i> line, but the 1990 robusto is my favorite. It is smooth, but still full. The draw is great,and the burn is even. I have yet to get a bad cigar from the Vintage line.

    I have had many other brands, but this is my very favorite cigar. A dark brown wrapper with a great roll. Tight and firm, but a nice draw and slow burn. The flavor jumps out when first lit, but smooths to a complex medium to full body smoke that lasts to the nub. I hate putting this cigar out.

    This by far is one of the best cigars that I have ever smoked. I'm only 23 and haven't had all the cigars in the world but I have tried enough to know what I like. Rocky Patels are one of the best smokes that I have ever had. It's a nice long relaxing smoke that you wont be disappionted with I promise.
