Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Torpedo Maduro

Once I saw this cigar I loved it because of the way it looks. After reading the very positive reviews around the blog I felt it is a must to get some. So I’ve finally purchased a pack of Five and I’ve smoked them all so far. Well here what I found:

Size: 5 x 54

Wrapper: Costa Rica (Maduro)

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Initial thoughts:

An attractive cigar that is beautifully made and box pressed. The wrapper is one of the darkest I’ve every seen with medium sized veins and decent amount of oil. The prelight draw was very open but not the boring one brings a woody cocoay and cherry like flavors.


The initial puffs were very smooth and creamy with flavors of sweet cocoa and wood and a mild to medium body. An inch down the body is already medium body at most but with silky smooth creamy smoke that has some spiciness and deep chocolate and wood; and a cherry complement the back ground. Hint of leather pop up by the end of this third.


The smoke gets sweet while here add caramel to mix with the choco, woody cherry maduro flavors, and there are very nice spices and leather of the background. The smoke is still rich and creamy loaded with very sweet flavors at the half way point. This third finishes peacefully.


Here the smoke start as medium to full body but no harshness, with new flavors of sweet tobacco, more spiciness and leather. The cigar finishes here with no change since the beginning of this third.

Final thoughts:

This is maybe the best Rocky Patel cigar I’ve had. This is not the most complex stick, but I feel it could be an everyday every time smoke. Yes I like it but not very soon going to get another pack

  1. I have had a few of the Olde World Reserve in the Crorojo wrapper but I did not like them as they seemed overly peppery to me. The Maduro version looks like a nice rich cigar and I might have to try one or two.

  2. I think you nailed it with that cherry note. I agree, it’s not a Padron ’64, but it’s still a smooth and fairly complex maduro. Probably my favorite Rocky, though there are still about 50 Rocky Patel blends I haven’t tried yet. :)
