The Rocky Patel Platinum Limited Edition is a premium cigar that is superbly crafted with the use of the finest and aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos wrapped in a beautiful Habano seed wrapper. Usually, this cigar line is square-pressed to ensure an effortless draw. Every cigar piece exudes medium to full notes of dark chocolate, hints of pepper, leather, vanilla, and spice. Once you taste it, you would certainly be able to say that the Platinum Limited Edition is one of Rocky’s best blends ever.

Cigar connoisseurs are likely to fall in love with the craftsmanship of Platinum as seen in some of the world’s best tobaccos. These are nurtured and harvested from their very own Rocky Patel farms located in Estelí and Condega. The blended filler from Nicaragua kicks off the tobacco arrangement with excellent flavors. Next to the ensemble is the special Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that wraps around the San Andreas binder.

The Platinum Limited Edition can be medium to full when it comes to strength. It gives off notes of citrus zest, smoked cedar, leathery spice, bittersweet chocolate, and licorice. This combination has garnered several 90 plus ratings and loyal followers of cigar aficionados.

Rocky Patel Platinum Limited Edition will go well with fine-tasting rum and long-aged single malt whiskey.

Platinum was first revealed in 2013. That time Rocky Patel was in a dilemma about choosing between an Ecuadorian Habano-seed wrapper and a Connecticut broadleaf. Eventually, it was the Maduro that won. However, Rocky was not sold out with the Habano-wrapped blend, which is why he later launched the Platinum Limited Edition. It is an offshoot brand that has been rationed into small quantities called Robusto, Toro, and Torpedo.

The experience of smoking the Platinum Limited Edition remains incredibly smooth. One thing more is that it has a continuous burn from the first time it is lit.
