Creamy, buttery, thick smoke, toasty. Absolutely wonderful.

"Great smoke for the price"
Have bought 2 boxes of these in the last couple of months. Great every day smoke.
Had only one bad one in the lot and a couple that have burned unevenly, but for the price and taste I'm willing to overlook the one or two mistakes.
Also, the box is spectacular, a real keeper! So much so that my father-in-law uses one for his money at our weekly poker game.

"A cigar that taste like A cigar."
Most cigars are constructed to be either extra flavorful or extra strong. This one is different. A good even flavor profile and A good balance between strength and flavor. I had no burn problems as others have stated and no issues with the blending of the flavors. The cigar that I smoked was great. I will definitely be ordering more. In my personal scorebook I gave this cigar a well deserved 97. Some people may say that I'm too generous with the way I score cigars, but I know what I enjoy and this cigar suits me fine. If I smoke A cigar and can find no fault with it, I will not hesitate to rate it accordingly.

"It's a go to smoke."
Indian Tabac started it all for me with the Tee pees and Chiefs. These things are like your favorite beer, you never get tired of them. I don't know why people overlook these. Delicioso.

"Far from a Patel"
Since I am a Rocky Patel, fan I was eager to try another of his creations. I was disappointed to say the least. This cigar starts out bitter and mellows just a bit. It burns very hot and usually uneven. I see why Rocky didn't put his name on these.

I know I already did a review of these, but I wanted to add that they can be a bit inconsistent. When they're good, they're great. When they're not so good, well, they're still enjoyable. I recently was in Vancouver, and smoked a Ramon Allones Specially Selected. When I got home, the first cigar I smoked was one of these, and to be honest, they were pretty damn similar tasting to me. Of course, YMMV, but for what it's worth, it's a damn good bargain. I think the RA I smoked in Vancouver cost me $25. The IT cost me a little over $2.

"Famous description is right on"
Kevin of Chicago must be referring to the Maduro, but I have smoked several of those and the Naturals, and I find these cigars have a marked, creamy sweetness that sets them apart (not better, just different and slightly milder) from the Vintage line. I've never had a bad RP cigar, although I don't care for his Cuban blend. These are great for smokers who prefer milder cigars, but occasionally crave something stronger. They are very smooth.

"Affordable alternative to the " R.P.vintage 92""
Unmistakable Rocky Patel flavor,burn,and nose.
Very little differance for those of you that smoke
the R.P.vintage line regularly as I do,you will notice that same nutty,woody complexity as the 92s
the start up is strong but settles very quickly
into very complex smoke with very hearty flavors.
Not for macanudo smokers!But not over powering.
If you have smoked the Indian Tabac classic line
and hated them as I do(taste like cigarettes)this
fuerte line is a whole different smoke! A must try for two a day puffers like me.
