"a very fine cigar from Rocky"
I am a Rocky fan. I know some folks aren't. I had a couple of his cigars I didn't care for recently, so I was skeptical of the xtreme, frankly. I got a five pack with my order recently and was blown away. Excellent flavor, clean burn, and an A+ experience overall. This now sits on the list as one of my favorite Rocky smokes along with the Renaissance, Decade, and the Edge.

"another good rocky"
I've been smoking cigars a couple years. When I found Rocky Patel's 1990 I knew I found my brand. I've been trying all of their line now and the extreme is a great smoke. Cool even smoke and great flavor.

I was surprised by these cigars. I got them free with my order and didn't expect much. The flavor was great and the draw was easy. I actually thought they were better than the Rocky Patel Sun Growns which I had also ordered. My only knock was that the burn became uneven on the last third and did not self correct. I will order more.

The Xtreme is a nice relaxing smoke great burn perfect ash and draw.Could be a touch more fuller in the flavor department but would never kick this girl outta bed.

"Rich and delicious..."
This one will crank you up. Full flavored is an understatement. The great wrapper only adds to the desirability of this smoke. I want more.

Nice cigar, especially with the special offer attached to it. Burns well, full flavor, nice smoke after a long day.

I picked up a box of these on a whim when it was on sale. I, personally, love a nice Sumatra wrapper, and this cigar didn't disappoint. It is a very cool smoke, with hints of espresso and pepper. It is subtly sweet, but also packs a heap of woody flavor that persists throughout the cigar. The flavor is just right for me. The only problem that I have with this cigar is tight draws and plugs. I've smoked about 5 of these, and of those 1 was fairly tight and another was too plugged to smoke. I gave the rest of my cigars a squeeze test and they all seem fine, maybe I'm just unlucky. I guess the bottom line for this cigar is that it is great , not exceptional. I plan on buying another box in the near future.

The prelight is very woody...some cocoa..but I really like the wood...reminds me of fresh cut wood done in large amounts. You can even smell the sap.
The wrapper is delightful. The reddish hued shimmery glow makes it very appetizing. Construction is superb except for lots of small veins.
The early woody taste is really driving the boat on this one. I'm beginning to taste some caramel, some sweetness that comes from butter. It's medium body.
The halfway point is usually where the cigar begins to show off. But it takes the first half to get there.
This inexpensive cigar has all the attributes of a more expensive cigar. Care was taken when developing it. It gives off the the character of a well aged cigar....meaty and possessing the "X" Factor.
I could easily find myself buying a box and letting it age and see where that takes us.

Burns even, oily brown/black wrapper, and great smell. Planning on a bigger ring liked it that much.
