ROCKY PATEL JAVA MINT
WRAPPER: Brazilian Mata Fina BINDER: Nicaragua FILLER: Nicaragua
First there was Java, now there’s Java Mint…
If you love mint chocolate chip ice cream or those dark chocolate covered mint cookies, this is the cigar for you. It’s made with the same blend of long filler tobaccos, binder and dark chocolaty brown Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper as the popular Java line, only this time they added a quality mix of mint, mocha and vanilla to the infusion process. The flavors are intense with a nice finish of mint that lingers on the tongue until you take the next pull. As I’m enjoying this “smoking dessert”, it reminds me of drinking a great cup of dark roast coffee with chocolate mint creamer as I’m sitting on the porch smoking a cigar and watching the snow come down. It’s an exhilarating experience, the cold, the snow, the hot sweet coffee and the clouds of smoke from the cigar. I remember thinking to myself “it doesn’t get much better than this”. Drew Estate and Rocky Patel have captured that moment with this cigar. They’re that good.
