"Soggy, Uneven burn, Constant Relighting"
Maduros are soggy..packed too tight.. Uneven burn..Must keep relighting..Terrible draw.

When I got them they were over humidified and wouldn't stay lit. Left them out of the humidor per Famous Smoke instructions and the wrapper split. They did nothing to make it right I will go somewhere else for cigars. Disappointed

My first Rp and first full flavor. I was not blown away but i enjoyed the cigar. I will keep a couple on hand. I see this as a great smoke as i do yard work.

"An uneventful powerhouse"
Am smoking one (the maduro) right now that I have aged for two years.
It is definately the fullest - bodied cigar I have smoked to date, even eclipsing the El Cobre with it's heavy, copious amounts of smoke. Draw, burn, and construction are perfect. However, beyond a heavy wood/tobacco taste there is not much in the way of complexity and the finish is rather bitter.
If you are looking for a straight powerhouse tobacco flavor from light to nub this might be the one for you. If you are looking for interesting or eventful, I'd pass on this one.

My first Rocky Patel. Very pleasing experience. Easy draw, good aroma, flavorful, burns evenly. Not my best smoke and won't change from my primary brand, but a good addition to my collection. Average priced.

"What a smoke should be!"
Perfectly constructed, beautiful seamless wrapper, lights well, draws great, lasts and stays lit. All round perfect smoke. Not normally a RP smoker but with a couple more of these and I may just switch brands!

Rocky Patel Edge Toro Carojo..best cigar I've had in a long time..tried them all over 20 years....full body....great burn...wish they were cello wrapped...need to be careful carrying them in a case. Great cigar to have with scotch or bourbon.

"Disappointed again with a Rocky Patel"
I must have bad luck. I've tried over a dozen RPs, most all of the different series. I've reviewed my notes and EVERY cigar had a very uneven burn! The draw on this one was not easy. The appearance and taste/aroma were very good. The only series that I have not tried is the Vintage. Hopefully, my luck will change. If it turns out to be more of the same, I'm done with Rocky.
