Rocky Patel Thunder is one powerful smoke!The Rocky Patel Thunder name forewarns the cigar aficionado that they will not be having visions of a leisurely walk in the park while smoking this offering.  The powerful taste palate that the Rocky Patel Thunder introduces to the smoker is packed with a complex set of robust flavors that more closely resembles a powerful storm cell.

Reviews have been very positive about this new blend of Nicaraguan, Ecuadoran, and Costa Rican leaves.  A dual binder surrounds the filler while an oily rich, dark wrapper finishes off the product with sophistication and enticing appeal.  A green and gold band graces the outside with the lettering construction of the name announcing the resounding strength of the cigar.

All reviewers report a peppery blast that greets the tongue upon light-up with a favorite cigar lighter.  The strength in flavor continues throughout the smoke with complex notes weaving the flavor palate.  White pepper and espresso take center stage in the second third, while a sweetness that had been hanging in the background steps up to be noticed in the last third.  The burn that the Rocky Patel Thunder produces is fairly even.  A rich moderate smoke that gives off an aroma of earthy scents fills the air and penetrates the senses.  To top off the experience, the cigar holds on to a solid ash, reportedly, for about two inches.

A robust and complicated array of spicy and striking flavors has reviewers writing rave reviews of this recent offering called Rocky Patel Thunder.  Moderately priced, Minish Desal has blended an awesome creation with a unique combination of leaves that is sure to find a home in the humidors of powerhouse loving aficionados everywhere.
