There a fair number of super-premium cigars bearing a Connecticut Shade wrapper, but only a handful of them would be considered especially complex, and only one boasts Rocky Patel's name - the Rocky Patel Signature Series.
This sterling cigar starts with a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper - a specially selected grade that's in very limited annual supply. The silky capa surrounds a wonderful blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers which have been blended to create depth while keeping the flavor smooth. Present are notes of leather, sweet wood, roasted nuts, coffee and cream with a hint of pepper on the finish. If you're prepared to have your mind changed about Connecticut Shade cigars, try the Rocky Patel Signature Series.
