"My first Rocky Patel experience"
After sitting in the humidor for a week I decided to fire one up. Great taste, lots of smoke and an easy draw. One of my new favorites.

"a dud in my book"
I got a 5 pack of these. 1st one tasted terrible, put it out. 2nd one canoed, wrapper blew up. No corojo flavor, very bland tasting. My humi sits at 67-68%, so it wasnt that. I have 3 to go, probably give them to Freddy the moocher, who don't know what he's smoking. This is the first time I have been disappointed in A RP cigar. Wish I hadnt ran out of fact select corojo's, they are the bomb!

"Balance and affordability"
I got a the Rocky Patel 10-cigar sampler pack having fallen in love with the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Robustos. Don't get me wrong, all Rocky Patels (or at least the ones I've tried) are great cigars. The Honduran classic falls somewhere between the spiciness of the Sun Grown, and the sweetness of the Vintage 1992. Everything about this cigar was perfect, nice smooth "classic cigar " flavor with that silky smooth aftertaste you get with all the Rocky Patels, an easy draw, a perfect wrap, and a great burn. My personal preference is the '92 Vintage but this is still a great cigar. Rocky Patel is the way to get yourself started on cigars, priced affordably just slightly below some "premium" cigars, and a flavor that is light years away from cheap humidor fillers.

"A must have for a serious smoker"
I ordered a 5 pack of these on a sale from Famous Smoke,and enjoyed them very much. I have had the pleasure of smoking the factory seconds in the past and thought they were a great cigar,(even better with time in the humidor), I havent had the opprotunity to be able to purchase them again because they are rarely available. So I got tired of waiting and recently ordered a deal Famous was offering for the Toro's.If you want a first rate cigar, and are willing to pay a little bit, then Rocky Patels are the cigar for you. I know I will be ordering more in the future.
