Most things get better with age; wine, cheese, fine cuts of beef and cigars. The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut is such a cigar. However, Vintage 1999 does not have the price tag of other vintage items. Rocky Patel has managed to produce a high end premium cigar at an affordable price. Furthermore, there are many deals and discounts to be found at elcigarshop.com when shopping online. Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 is a cigar I highly recommend you try!
The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 features a seven-year aged blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-leaf ligero wrapped in a true Connecticut shade-grown wrapper that was harvested in 1999.
Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 is a tasty, well-balanced, mild cigar with an essence of red pepper, almond, floral spices and a touch of sweet saltiness. The spice remains throughout the tiny Petite Corona without being overwhelming. The cigar provides a buttery smooth pillow of smoke. Vintage 1999 paired with a beer is a truly enjoyable, delicious smoking experience.
A beer to suit a milder cigar should be equally mild, so as to not overpower and ruin your smoke. Frequently, I choose a beer with creamy vanilla flavors with a touch of effervescence for this pairing. This will quench your palate nicely between puffs. Beer styles that fit into this category are Marzen, Bock, Wheat Beer, English ESB, American Pale Ale, Brown Porter, and Weiss bier.
A rich and hoppy wheat beer like the Schneider Weisse Hopfen-Weisse is a wheat beer with creamy flavors of vanilla and wheat with a delicate champagne-like tingle that will keep your palate refreshed during your smoking experience. Enjoy!
