Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Special Edition Sixty
The first few puffs on the Rocky Patel Special Edition Sixty are delicious, even if they are a little hard to get. This cigar is well made, the wrapper is dark and slightly oily, and it's huge, but it's pretty dense. I'm almost surprised it passed Rocky's draw test, especially given that I've already done two overlapping punches.
This Special Edition cigar is truly that – a special edition that isn't widely available. The flavors are smooth and creamy. The aroma is sweet and rich. Other than the tight draw, this cigar is excellent.

The Rocky Patel Special Edition Sixty is an impressive cigar that lasted a long time (almost 2 1/2 hours). The flavors were great through the entire smoke. After smoking about an inch, the draw became easier, though I also punched it a 3rd time to create a larger hole. The burn got a little weird in the last third. The Sixty went out and was hard to relight, and when I did, the wrapper stopped burning evenly and became jagged.
Because of the length of the smoke, the wonderful flavors, and the amount of sweet tobacco rolled into this cigar, I give the Rocky Patel Special Edition Sixty a CigarScore 4.
