Handmade in Honduras, the Vintage 1992 Series is one of Rocky Patel’s bestselling blends. Released in 2003 alongside the Vintage 1990, Vintage 1992 contains the same blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos as the Vintage 1990 but contains an aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper for a noticeably different profile. The 10 year vintage dark brown wrapper and tobacco blend allows for a refined, balanced medium-bodied smoke.
The excellent construction of the Vintage 1992 is smooth with a slight oily undertone and no apparent flaws. There are hearty tasting notes of cocoa, nutty almonds and cashews balanced throughout with a creamy finish with hints of spice and earth.
The Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Toro is a premium cigar, with premium construction, available at a price point that makes these outrageously affordable for every cigar smoker. With El Cigar Shop’s amazing discounts, you will want to definitely stock up on these beauties.
Vintage 1992’s earthy and savory notes needs a pairing that won’t overpower them. Bourbon with water, or a large ice cube, mellows out any harshness in the liquor. Old Weller Antique Isa wheat bourbon, aged for 7 years, has a nice sweetness and spicy flavor. However, at a whopping 107 proof, Old Weller deserves a little watering down. When paired with the Vintage 1992 Toro, the earthiness of the cigar cuts the heat away from the bourbon. This pairing ends on a very high note. The all-around experience is well rounded and is certainly a pairing that can fit into almost any smoking situation.
