Xen by Nish Patel Cigars
Xen by Nish Patel
After discontinuing the Patel Bros. line of cigars, Rocky Patel announced the addition of two new brands for some of the other Patels in the family business, Xen by Nish Patel and Thunder by Nimish Patel. Nish is Rocky's brother. He has been a public figure for many years and now he finally has a cigar to call his own. Xen is made at Rocky's Nicaraguan TAVICUSA factory in four box-pressed shapes. The Xen is the first box-pressed Connecticut on the market utilizing an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and proprietary fillers. Rocky thought the cigar was so good, they have been unwilling to identify any tobacco but the wrapper, a relative rarity.
While the E.P. Carrillo NWC has enjoyed most of the praise for Connecticut of the year, Xen by Nish Patel deserves some consideration. It's got a core that is nutty with spices, fruits, cocoa, leather, meatiness and creaminess joining the fray as a consistent pepper serves a reminder that there is a bit of Nicaragua in here. It's mild in strength, though anything but in flavor and body, both of which are solidly in the medium-full category. For those that have written off anything by Rocky Patel, this is your cigar to try. It has consistently shocked people for all the right reasons. It's a smooth, flavorful and rich Connecticut with a killer price. Furthermore the versatility of Xen by Nish Patel means that new smokers can enjoy this cigar, getting tons of flavor from what will go down as a classic Connecticut, an absolute winner.
