I saw a couple reviews comparing this to Rocky Vintage. Not fair. This isnt in that category. I smoked this on the back nine while golfing. It was a rather smooth smoke, and had pretty good flavors, but conitnually had burn and draw issues. I had to relight a few times and it wasnt due to negligence on my part. Had a tight draw and inconsistent burn. Started off well, but gradually worsened to the end. For the price, overall not bad, especially for an outdoor golf outing.
Seeing the mixed reviews, I didn't have much hope, but this is a beautiful box-pressed cigar. Burned pretty well, decent buzz, good flavor all the way.
As I always begin, cigar preference is very subjective. To me this is a great cigar, and worth the $5 price. The taste was excellent and complex, with no negative detractions. The draw was as good as it gets. I have found RP cigars to be quite inconsistent, but this one is a winner.
Having smoked almost all of the RP cigars out there, this is not his best. Don't get me wrong, the stick looked very nice out of my humidor, the burn was pretty even throughout, draw was good and a nice ash that held. But the flavor was inconsistent, a little hint of spice here and there but nothing that was a standout.
