Cigar Aficionado Top 25 Cigars of 2016 - #2 - Rated 95

Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto is not only the latest and greatest cigar from Rocky Patel and company; it is one of his most excellent concoctions to date! More than a decade after the release of the original highly acclaimed Sun Grown, Sun Grown Maduro has been presented as somewhat of a complete reincarnation, this time appealing almost exclusively to fans of ultra-full-bodied cigars. Unlike the original Honduran blend, Sun Grown Maduro is made in Rocky’s TaviCusa factory in Nicaragua. The blend consists of a spicy, bold blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco beneath a dark, veiny Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. The immense complexity, along with the combination of robust and smooth, has earned Sun Grown Maduro very prestigious accolades from various websites and magazines, including an unheard of 95 rating in Cigar Aficionado, along with a high placing on the magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of 2016 list. Buckle up and get ready for a roller coaster of flavor, because Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro offers one heck of a ride.

Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro is not your typical maduro cigar. The precise blend of Nicaraguan fillers, coupled with the double binders and classic broadleaf wrapper make a sort of hybrid flavor profile of spicy and sweet. The construction is immensely beautiful, not just aesthetically, but in terms of the way the cigar burns and smokes. A medium-firm draw delivers dense clouds of thick, white smoke, pounding the taste buds with an immediate blast of spicy Nicaraguan pepper. The spicy introduction is soon followed by layer after layer of delicate nuances, including mocha, chocolate, and nutmeg. A rich, earthy undertone remains constant throughout, holding the sweet and spicy flavors together in beautiful harmony. The finish is sweet, clean, and quick, never ceasing to bring about a desire for more. Astoundingly beautiful, Sun Grown Maduro is a whole new kind of cigar from Rocky Patel.

A cigar of this caliber is obviously aimed at a more experienced audience. However, the modest price point really calls for just about anyone to enjoy it freely. Obviously, connoisseurs with more developed palates will truly appreciate the complexity and strength of Sun Grown Maduro much more than beginners, but nevertheless, it makes a wonderful cigar for just about any audience. The 5 x 50 Robusto is a great way to become acquainted with the rich, bold Sun Grown Maduro blend. Sun Grown Maduro pairs well with dark beer or coffee, and is in a special class of high-end maduro cigars, including Camacho Triple Maduro and Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro. Whether or not you are a fan of maduro cigars, Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto is a cigar worth trying, as it is very far from the maduro cigars you are probably used to. Don’t take our word for it, though. Try one yourself for a truly eye-opening experience.
