The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 offers a very light earthy spice when first lit up.  It has a really clean and full draw which offers a lot of smoke.

Fifteen minutes into this cigar, it begins to present a toasty almond note, clean dry oakyness, and it is very smooth and sweet on the end. It provides a great draw and a nice even burn.

Halfway through the 99′, it presents a hint of sweet cream flavor and a nice toasted almond finish.  The burn is remaining even and the draw is very consistent.

The Rocky Patel Vintage 99′ finishes off with a nice almond flavor. The sweetness has disappeared, and the dry oak notes have taken its place. It’s pleasantly smooth and dry with a cream finish. The burn has been consistent not needing a touch-up at all.

Conclusion:
