Rocky Patel is one of the hardest working men in the cigar industry and his hard work totally pays off in spades. The Rocky Patel OSG was the original sun-grown blend when it first appeared over a decade ago. The current blend is slightly different, but both are super tasty. The OSG hails from Honduras and features a thick, oily and leathery Honduran Sun-Grown wrapper which secures a Honduran binder and a bevy of Nicaraguan fillers, and the cigar is then laid down for a long five year nap. Light one up and let flavors of wood, cashews, and toast coat your palate with blasts of pepper that develop towards the back half of the smoke. Try this smoke with a tequila.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
