"Back in the Humidor"
I put the rest of these back in the humidor for a long rest. Taste compared to a cigarette or gas station cigarillo, draw was like sucking through an open straw (non-existent), and the burn was all over. The additional rest is in hope of not wasting ALL of the $ I spent.

"It's NOT a CUBAN, but it is a fine smoke!"
This has made it to the higher ranks in my cigar list.Again I'll say, it is by no means a cuban, but it is a very well built, and very satisfying smoke!This is one of the more "leathery" smokes Ive ever had. I like to enjoy one of these with a couple of New Castle nut brown ales. They are the perefect pair! I highly recommend this cigar to anyone.

Recieved a box of the Torpedo Corojo for my birthday. 90% were severely cracked by the cap! Can't believe these are RP's. Have purchased Toro Maduro without problems, but these will drive me away from RP altogether if this is what their quality control is like. Going back to Partagas.

As one who likes rocky vintages and has smoked strong cigars for years I was very disappointed with this cigar. the draw, burn, taste and construction are totally inconsistent. even assessing the best of them I wouldn't get these again. I tried them because I got them cheap in an auction. now I wouldn't smoke these for any money. Well that's not true. I'd smoke them for a buck a piece I guess. I can't believe they are rated so high. stick with 1990 and 1992.

"What can I say, it tastes good and it fits!"
It works for me!

The worst Rocky Patel cigar I have ever had. It smelled like some sort of tea before I lit it. I couldn't even smoke a 1/4 of it before putting it out. Bitter, nasty taste. I gave the rest away and had my friends cuss at me later. Nothing about this blend reminded me of "cuban".

"For the money, a great smoke"
Bought some on auction at a damb good price, they make excellent gifts, even gave a box to my Lawyer, after I covered him up to his neck in sand, I later wished that I had more sand instead.

"medium stregnth,bold/full flavors,very creamy."
The corojo,spicey yet extremely smooth with very creamy taste with hints of coconut or almonds.
Burn perfectly easy to medium draw.
Beautiful shiny silky oily cigar
3-4in ash before dropping of light grey color.
A bit raw and some amonia flavors at last third but this torpedo will do great with age.
Excellent cigar and am buying peteite beli's and torpedo boxes of corojo.
I will let the maduro torpedo 5'r I have rest for 6 months to bring out the sweetness,maybe try one next week.
