"Rocky s AAA team"
As good as all of the Rocky s I have had, this one cannot seem to get an even burn. I ve been called amatuer in the hockey parking lot too many times. Great look, feel and smoke, but tough to get over the uneven burn.

"Not Too Great.."
I have burned four of these. None have burned well at all. The draw was pretty rough, one was so bad I had to throw it away. Not impressed.

"Don't hesitate to pass these up!"
I ordered a box of Rocky Patel Cuban Blend Sixtys with Maduro wrappers. These are beautiful cigars to look at and they smell fantastic. Unfortunately for me, the good feeling was gone when I lit one. Over the course of 3 weeks I tried smoking 3 of them - the operative word is "tried" - and they were simply unsmokable. They burned down the center as if the wrappers were soaked (they were not) and they had a terrible draw. I was unable to smoke any of the 3 past half way. Quite a disappointment. I sent the remainder of my box back to Famous for a refund.

I agree with some of the above as there are some inconsistencies on the burn, but still a great smoke from start to finish.

Not impressed. Out of 20 cigars only 2 burned evenly.

"Not Rocky's Best!"
Not one of Rocky's best. Review is based on a box of 20. I have consistantly had burn and draw issues. Full bodied smoke.

"Rocky Strikes Again!"
I smoke a lot of Rockys, just good value dollar per stick. First one of these I tried. With the rest, always good construction, consistency, burn and draw. They always look good. But the the maduro in a 60, it burned long. Taste evolved from just about right to overpowering at the nub. Not for the timid or novice. Savored this with a fine Tempranillo Port, perfect pair next to the vineyard. 90 across the board to me.

"My #1 Favorite"
This has to be one of my absolute favorites. Even burn, ritch aroma and taste with may subtle after tastes. I have to admit it is not for the faint at heart This is a full bodied smoke from start to finish. One of the most enjoyable aspects is that it burns cool even down to the nub.
