⊗ Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro Robusto is not only the latest and greatest cigar from Rocky Patel and company; it is one of his most excellent concoctions to date!

Unlike the original Honduran blend, Sun Grown Maduro is made in Rocky’s TaviCusa factory in Nicaragua. The blend consists of a spicy, bold blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco beneath a dark, veiny Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. The immense complexity, along with the combination of robust and smooth, has earned Sun Grown Maduro very prestigious accolades from various websites and magazines, including an unheard of 95 rating in Cigar Aficionado, along with a high placing on the magazine’s Top 25 Cigars of 2016 list. Buckle up and get ready for a roller coaster of flavor, because Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro offers one heck of a ride.
