""I like a good Cuban Blend""
I got a 5pack to try them.I'm glad I did. They were right on in all categories.2 were a little tight on the draw. But who cares!Good Cuban blend from RP! I will buy again.

"What a great smoke"
I've been sampling many cigars from RP to try to draw a bead on my favorite RP. I was going with Patel Bros Robusto until I tried this one. The maduro gives it a nice punch of sweetness, but not too much like say, an Ashton Aged Maduro. Draw is important to me, and this one does not disappoint. I have marked these as "BW", box worthy in my own personal rating system. Enjoy!

"A good medium bodied smoke."
Just A good solid smoke. Not too strong,not too weak. It starts out smooth with A little spice and builds from there. Very consistent in flavor, I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. My personal rating for this cigar is 93.
The corojo wrapper gives it the extra punch I desire in A smoke. A great aroma finished this experience very well.

I am huge fan of RP. While this is a decent smoke, it is below the RP average for me. Full of flavor, but a little bitter for me. Still have 4 in my humidor...may be the last ones I smoke.

"Too Spicy for my taste"
This came in a sampler ordered last month and I was waiting for a long leisurely Saturday smoke so I could take my time with it. First off I had an abortion at the cap cut and eff'd the wrapper up at the head. I continued and smoked it down to an inch. Everything was what I expected in quality, but it was a bit too much for my rookie palate. Those who enjoy a full, spicy smoke will love this stick. I'll rate it high as it is a quality smoke, but just too much for me.

"Make sure You Eat Something First"
Got these in the post yesterday after ordering a five pack from the Monster. I made the mistake of smoking my first one this morning over coffee on an empty stomach - not my usual habit. The short of it: Way to full bodied and wonderful for breakfast! This is a cigar for after dinner (preferable steak) and definitely to be enjoyed with a friend. Hats off (again) to Patel for making a another wonderful cigar. I already have an appointment to meet my best friend ocean side this evening. These are to good to smoke alone.

"A nearly perfect cigar"
From the mediocre ratings, wasn't expecting much, but was blown away. Beautiful wrapper, incredibly easy draw, very even burn. After 20 minutes, it wasn't even half gone, but I had such a strong nicotine buzz I had to stop. Clouds of savory smoke at every turn. Maybe the taste wasn't at the Padron Anniversario level, but for the price these are tops.
