Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Unica ToroThe Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Edicion Unica Toro cigar took first place at the annual Honduran Cigar Festival of 2011. This stick was specifically created for this prestigious event. Part of the name of this stick was to pay homage to a legendary Honduran ruler, Humo Jaguar. He led the once great Mayans in the city of Copan, which is found in the Western hemisphere of Honduras. These Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Edicion Unica Toro cigars are the fifth major release of 2011.



The country of Honduras is affectionately referred to as 'The Cradle of Tobacco'. For over 1,500 years, tobacco has been an integral part of their culture, starting with the Mayans seeking to communicate with the spirit world. The Mayan word sicar (cigar) means 'to smoke'. These Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Edicion Unica Toro cigars are an honorable representation to the heritage of this culture. The company chose to make this line a limited offer, producing only 500 boxes. Each box of these medium to full bodied smokes contained 100 sticks. Its rich complexness gives off a wonderful aroma according to the magnificent reviews.



The Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Edicion Unica Toro cigar is a Honduran puro blend. This stick has a beautifully dark Honduran Jamastran wrapper. The filler is comprised from Jamastran and Talanga Valley Ligero tobaccos. The binder is Honduran. This particular stick was only produced in the toro sized vitola; a 6 x 52. Upon cutting the cap, several reviews stated that the pre-lit draw was simply outstanding! Flavors touching the palate were of rich coffee with a hint of spiciness. Everyone stated that the first puff, once lit, engulfed the mouth with rich chocolate and a slight peppery flavor. Later into the first third, creamy notes mixed perfectly with the chocolaty notes. The end of the first third incorporated a citrus flavor that, surprisingly, mixed well with the chocolate, cream, and pepper. Reviewers stated that this blending was uniquely interesting.



Through the second third of the stick, a few of the reviews noticed that the chocolaty notes gave way to a classic tea flavoring. The peppery notes subtly changed to exotic spices. Reviews unanimously agreed that at no time did the pepper or spice become over powering. From beginning to end, the Rocky Patel Special Edition Humo Jaguar Edicion Unica Toro cigar never became harsh to the nose or to the palate. The burn remained steady at an even rate and temperature throughout the entire length of the smoke. The ash stayed consistent and held on well. One reviewer was quoted as saying, "...the flavors are rich and deep throughout - making for a textbook case for a full-bodied smoke."



In summary, this rich, flavorful stick lived up to its name of a legendary leader. It is well balanced with regards to the fullness of body and the medium to fullness in strength. The first draw was nothing short of pure excellence and remained so throughout the entire length. The burn remained even and steady holding a nice ash.
