Robusto So, years ago some jerk said that Patels were the absolute best. That was enough, for me, to not try a Patel, ever. So, I stopped in at JR's in Southfield and asked the not-Greg guy to throw together 4 or 5 cigars based on the scant info I had given him. In the group was the Patel Winter collection Robusto. You know, I've forgotten the others. The Robusto was a delightful smoke. Not a fan of Nicaraguan tobacco from way back, I found this Winter Collection Patel good flavored and just the right intensity. In fact it motivated me to try another Patel with the San Andreas wrapper. Not exactly a big mistake, however not what I was expecting. I found the flavor to be very good, but way too strong for me. At a family gathering I could share the Vintage 2006 San Andreas, to which everyone agreed was a good flavored yet very strong smoke, yet, all I could do was tell them about the wonderful Winter Collection Robusto. Alas, I had none to share. 4 4 1 July 8, 2021 Richard W.
