Selected by Cigar Aficionado 2020 #9 Cigar Of The Year – Rated 95

Making cigars that earn high ratings and rave reviews is nothing new to Rocky Patel, but with Number 6 Corona, he may have just outdone himself. Introduced in 2019, the Number 6 is one of Rocky Patel’s cigars still made in the company’s Honduran factory, El Paraiso. This masterpiece features high-end tobaccos from two different countries, all patiently aged and hand selected especially for this blend. As for that blend, the wrapper is a golden brown Corojo leaf from Honduras, the binder is a Honduran Jamastran leaf, and the filler blend consists of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco from Jamastran and Jalapa, respectively. The result is a medium-bodied cigar presenting a plethora of flavor and balance, exclusively aimed at the most discriminating cigar snobs. Rocky once again hit one out of the park, as Number 6 earned a 95 rating in Cigar Aficionado and a top 10 spot on the famed magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of 2020.

The packaging for the Number 6 is stylish, simple, and contemporary, including a long black band with white and gold lettering. Each vitola is masterfully constructed and offers a generous draw and plenty of silky white smoke on each puff. A burst of cedar is immediately noticeable, along with a generous amount of black pepper, soon settling into the background while earthy tobacco flavors take the driver’s seat. Sweet floral notes are constant from start to finish, along with some hints of brown sugar on the finish. Medium-bodied and easy to enjoy, Number 6 is quite a satisfying smoke for any time of the day. The 6” x 44 Corona is an awesome way to get acquainted with the blend, and is also the size that made the top 10 list!

Of all cigar manufacturers, Rocky Patel Cigars is without a doubt the one with something for everyone. Their blends over the years may as well be innumerable, with cigars for just about every taste, experience level, and palate out there. Where does Number 6 fall on this spectrum? In all honesty, anyone that lights one will likely be impressed, but only the most seasoned palates will be able to truly appreciate everything that makes this stick special. In other words, this is a cigar for the hardcore connoisseurs. It pairs well with bourbon or scotch, and is comparable to such Honduran examples as Camacho Corojo or Alec Bradley Prensado. Number 6 Corona is proof that Rocky is still in the game, and there’s no doubt that for many that try it, Number 1 may be a more appropriate name.
