In 2005, the original Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve series was released. It came with both Corojo and Maduro wrappers. After a brief production hiatus in 2012, the Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Maduro and Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo were re-released in 2018. The original release received critical acclaim due to the fine and rare tobaccos included in the blend, so Rocky Patel was more than pleased when the company was finally able to secure enough of the unique leaves needed to bring the series back to consumers. The brand has now undergone design tweaks, with the bands and boxes being updated for a more contemporary feel.
While the Corojo blend stayed the same, the Maduro has undergone some changes. The main differentiator is adding a new Nicaraguan filler that accompanies the original Honduran fillers. The wrapper is a Costa Rican Maduro and the binder is Nicaraguan. Flavors that pop out of this medium to full-bodied cigar are of espresso, oak, sweetness, earth, and cabinet spices.
