Rocky Patel Nimmy D Sixty Cigars For Sale OnlineThe Rocky Patel Nimmy D cigar was just one of many blends revealed by the company at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show. Named after Patel’s cousin Nimish, this blend is a follow up to the Thunder, a cigar created by Nimish himself. In recent years, Nimish has steadily taken on more responsibility at the company, and this stogie is a clear example of why he’s being trusted to create his own blends. This stick is not quite as powerful as the Thunder, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer enough punch of its own.

This smoke features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, a Jamastran Valley binder, and fillers from Hondurus and Nicaragua (both Jalapa and Esteli tobaccos). It is available in three formats, including Robusto (4 1/2 x 56), Toro (6 x 52) and 60 (6 x 60). The Rocky Patel Nimmy D is milk chocolate in color and slightly oily and silky to the touch. It is incredibly smooth, with only a small vein or two visible on its surface. The band is a classy sky blue and silver, with the name of the blend stamped in delicate silver lettering. The pre-light draw produces a mixture of leather, earth, dark chocolate and black pepper notes.

The initial third of the stogie delivers more of this black pepper to the smoker. It is strong and maintains its hold longer than most other Habanos. Once it settles down a little, some earth notes emerge and grow stronger throughout the first half-inch. Reviewers noted that about an inch in, a combination of sugar cane and dark chocolate present themselves, though they remain in the background. The black pepper is the dominating flavor in this part of the stogie, and is particularly punchy on the retro-hale.

In the second third of the Rocky Patel Nimmy D cigar, the black pepper fades some and is replaced by the earth up front. The black pepper maintains a strong second place in terms of strength, however. The dark chocolate and sugar cane remain in the background until around the halfway point. The chocolate steps up into the foreground with the earth while the sugar cane becomes a tertiary note.

The last third of the cigar sees a reemergence of the black pepper, which almost matches the earth in terms of intensity
. The dark chocolate is still present, but is strictly a secondary note at this point. The black pepper and earth flavor retain their hold on the stick all the way to the nub.

While this smoke isn’t as intense as the Thunder, it is still medium to full-bodied in strength
. It produces an excellent finish that reviewers were particularly fond of, which helps manage the intense black pepper. The burn and draw both rate well, though this stogie can be a fast burner with aficionados who like to draw aggressively. It is said to be best when savored and handled slowly. With its strong, punchy flavors, this is a stick for aficionados who love bold, intense offerings.
