"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.

Stationed in Afghanistan we went through quite a few cigars-one of our only luxuries-smoked many different brands and strengths. Got the Indian Tabac as a freebie with a travelling humidor. Wow! Became our favorite. Nutty, chewy, spicy, all those words fit this cigar. Haven't seen one come close to the taste and flavor at this price. A winner! Great job RP.

"Strong Good Cigar w/ a slight bite towards the end"
I enjoyed the cigar which I purchased from a Sampler pack. I would not turn it down, but would not buy it by the box. I also don't like the feel of the box press in my mouth.

"Superb Blended Flavor"
Got this in the famous powerhouse sampler. Was surprised that this cigar had so much flavour in a natural wrapper. Very tasty hints of spice. Draw was good Burn was consistent. Will buy again.

Got one in a sampler pack. It sat in my humidor for about 4 weeks before I got around to smoke it. What a great surprise. It has a great full flavor that will not over power your senses. The draw was easy and consistent. The burn was very good. I will order a box as soon as I get more free space in my humidor. If you like medium / full cigars you have to try this one.

"A puro with some guts but easy & smooth"
This is a cigar with some guts & flavor & body. Im REALLY into full body & -F-U-L-L- flavor, so my opinion is probably a little biased (or my tastes jaded over time), but even though I'm looking for a fuller flavored smoke, this cigar definitely delivers. It might not be for the mild cigar lover. On the other hand, if youre looking to try a fuller bodied, and fuller flavored cigar, than I would highly recommend this cigar! It goes down very easy, and is quite smooth, just about down to the nub (almost burned my fingers on it). At worst, a cigar that will not offend. At best, this is a high quality smoke that might easily become a personal favorite. Worth trying? - I would give it a definite thumbs up!
Please let me thank the Famous team for the great Catalogue, the great Web Site, the great deals, the great cigars, and the great store in Easton, complete with our own treasured Lisa, and her very fine apprentice Jim.
