Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 cigars are the latest edition to this marvelous series that's become a hit with cigar smokers 'round the world. Each Rocky Patel Vintage Connecticut 1999 Toro Natural cigar has a perfectly-balanced blend of Dominican & Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos - all aged 7 years - highlighted by a mild, 1999-vintage Connecticut wrapper. The cigars are aged 120 days after rolling, and unlike the Rocky Patel Vintage '90 & '92, are NOT box-pressed. A sensationally smooth, toasty, medium-bodied cigar that hits on all cylinders.

The wrapper was extremely bitter and I had to put it out about a quarter way through. The smoke output was good, but the bitterness of the wrapper was too overpoweringless

This was my first 1999 and I have to agree with some reviews I've read, it is on the bitter side but has good flavor over all. I found it slightly more pleasant then the Edge Lite however. The draw backs for me: Bitterness and very uneven burn. But once you get about half way, the burn becomes more consistent and once your are finished, the after tasted was surprisingly good despite the bitter smoke.less

The Rocky Patel Connecticut Toro Cigar, is a nice looking cigar with a smooth vainless Connecticut wrapper, that supports a nice white ash. This cigar has a green grassy, and hay taste, throughout the the burn, witch leads to rather dull uneventful tasting cigar. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this cigar a 3.5 less

This was a beautiful cigar; what everyone craves and few makers can produce. The wrapper was flawless, the cigar smoked beautifully right down to the nub. No relights or fixes. It was a bit on the light side; Macanudo light. I won't hesitate to try some other RP's but this was certainly a beginners cigar.less

Great aroma,excellent burn but leaves a bitter after taste, I thought it might be the blend but at this point im not sure because all of the light wrapper RP'S have left a bitter after taste and its very disapointing because I really like the aroma of the rockys , I guess im going to have to stick to the edge only, because so far its the only rockey that dosent leave that nastey after taste with the exception of the rp cuban blend that lost the bitterness after it sat in my humidor for a couple of weeks.less
