The Toro sized cigar owes its good looks to the dark Ecuadoran Habano-seed Oscuro wrapper that was culled from the upper primings of the plant. Underneath, a double binder and a hearty Nicaraguan blend amounts to a very lush and satisfying smoke, full of complex fla- vors that range from coffee and coconut to blackberry and licorice. Patel created only 2,000 numbered boxes of the Robusto and the Rocky Patel 50 is the most expensive cigar line he's ever put out, limited edition or otherwise. Much of the tobacco is provided by the famed grower and leaf broker Nestor Plasencia, long- time supplier to Rocky Patel's myriad brands. But the Fifty is produced in Estelí, Nicaragua, at Patel's Tabacalera Villa Cuba factory, more commonly known as Tavicusa.
