I was excited to try this RP stick after reading so many reviews regarding it's mellow, creamy flavor. I've burned a few now, and, unfortunately, haven't experienced that yet. This just reminds me of how flavor hits everyone's palate differently, so reviews should also be considered with that in mind (even this one). What I found was a much sharper flavor of spicy, woody tones and pepper. Sometimes I get this at the initial light with certain cigars but they become more tame as I smoke them. That doesn't happen with this one. The flavor is consistent throughout, however, never mellow, which tends to overpower any creaminess that may be lurking underneath. Not a bad smoke if that's what you're looking for but, when expecting something much smoother and leisurely, this one doesn't measure up. Perhaps more seasoning in the humidor will soften this one for me.

I'm just a novice, occasional smoker, but this cigar is so creamy; it's just gets better every puff.

"Very enjoyable smooth & tasty smoke."
Very well constructed, burn is even, smooth and mild with
great flavor. The R P AMS will be my reward cigar. A little too costly for my daily smoke.

"My first Rocky Patel, and Not My Last"
I ordered two of these cigars through the "Create Your Own" sampler. I'm so very glad I did. At first the cedar taste was a bit strong, but then mellowed out. Then it became a creamy, full of flavor cigar with hints of sweetness and cedar. I find it to be mild bodied, but on the stronger side if not medium bodied. I'm really enjoying my first Rock Patel cigar. I'm going to have to purchase more of these and other Rocky cigars. I've got to say, "Rocky you've done a masterful job!"

"Smooth cigar, priced right"
I received one in a sampler, and was surprised at how smooth it was. I hope to always have a few in the humidor

"Top Notch Rocky Patel"
The AMS Toro by Rocky Patel is one of his better cigars, medium in body ,tastes of young cedar and butter toast. The burn is almost razor sharp and that is to be noted because a lot of R.P Cigars burn uneven but not this one. I really enjoyed it and i rate 3rd after the R.P Vintage 1992 and Royal Vintage.

"Leave it in your humidor!"
I had a few from a RP sampler, the first one was not in my humidor a week after getting it and it did not meet my expectation so I let the other one sit for 3 months in the humidor and smoked it and what an improvement. So if you get them let them sit for a few months

This was one of the worst cigars I have ever had. Being Rocky Patel I expected good things from it but was extremely disappointed. It is a fine cigar in everything but the taste. It has a grassy taste with very very slight hints of coffee in the after taste and is not for me. I tossed it after just 5 minutes
