"Smoke it 'til you can't hold it anymore"
I have enjoyed several of these Cuban Blends. I have found that eventually I need to remove the band as the flavor just keeps on coming. I smoke them on my front patio while viewing the Sierra Nevadas and I get a consistent burn time of nearly 90 minutes per stick.As long as you keep an eye on the burn and rotate the cigar every no and then the burn is even.

"Good but not great"
Good smoke solid burner. A little harsh on the flavor other than that no complaints. Well worth the money for a box.

"One of my Favorite Rocky's, period."
I bought a 5 pack of this great looking stick, almost knowing I would like it. I let it settle into my humidor for about a month the lit one up and boy was I right! It's got that signature Rocky flavor with a touch of spiciness. It starts out with leather notes... then on to hints of coffee with an almost subtle whiskey flavor at the end. I compare this to one of my favorite cigars, the Gurkha Master Select. Very similar in taste, certainly making this a regular.

"Not thrilled about this one."
Was not thrilled with the taste of this one, been smoking Perdomo lately and wish I had stayed with that smoke.

Just got a box yesterday. Immediately broke one out for a test. Good construction, great pre-burn smell, easy light, squirrelly burn. 1st third pretty good, 2nd third great; final act ok. BIG heavy smoke... which I like. Would recommend to anyone!

"Excellent smoke for the price. Highly recommend."
Not as good as the 90 or 92 Rocky Patel series, however, excellent overall cigar. Burn could be a little slower. Taste very good right out of the box (no cigar shock at all after shipping). Would highly recommend these for the casual cigar smoker and for those that have a large number of smokers together at once. Try them: you will be very pleased.

"love them. perfect cigar"
From the time you light it til the time your burning your finger tips great flavor and nice razor straight burn. Never had one that disappointed me. The RP Cuban Blend toros are fantastic. The RP Decades don't even compare.

"Very Good Cigar"
I got these in a bid and thought well they are made by Rocky Patel.When I lit on up was very empressed with the flavor.
Very strong Honduran tobacco nice change from Nic.
Had a lot of toasty and oaky with roasted nuts at the finish.Will get more for the humi.

"Not bad, couple cons however."
Pretty good cigar. I'm not a smoker of big cigars (I usually smoke Backwoods) but for an occasion they are always nice. Anyways, beautiful construction and appearance. Very pleasant aroma when you first open it up. Easy to light, and pretty constant burn. So I lit it up and it tasted great. Tasted great until about 3/4 of the way through. At that point it developed a somewhat bitter taste to it. It also had a kind of wobbly burn to it. Other than that, very good cigar. Would recommend to many.
