The decade commemorates Rocky Patel’s 10th year in the cigar industry so it’s expected that the group would go “all out” on the blend and make up of this cigar. In comparison to other Rocky Patel cigars, the decade is superior, but in our opinion is so so in comparison to other notable brands. This cigar gets high marks amongst the collective cigar community, but we just don’t get the hype. It isn't horrible but doesn’t live up to the initial expectations. At roughly
$8.00 a stick, it’s worth a taste and although we didn't fall in love with this cigar, we could see how others would.
Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
