Got this robusta Maduro in a sampler pack. Usually I'll smoke at least 2 cigars before making up my mind but I don't know if I will do that with this one. The cigar I had was one of the firmest rolled cigars I've ever held. Borderline rock. The wrapper looked good and oily. Nice sheen. The typical, loose RP draw was not there at all. Not a terribly difficult draw but much tighter than I'd prefer. The burn was odd. The entire way down it saw toothed. Never seen that before. Smoke production was average and it burned for well over an hour. Ash was average or slightly below. Flavor was the best part and in the end, that is why I would consider another one.

The draw is horrible, I expected much better from a Rocky Patel.

"Great Cigar for the Casual Smoker"
Got this cigar in a sample pack and as a more social and casual smoker this is the best cigar I have come across. Decent flavor and a great burn without the overpowering flavor that I dislike. If you are a casual smoker and looking for a good cigar this is your smoke!

"Better than expected"
Got this in a sampler for free and was not expecting much. Man was I surprised, it was a nice smoke all the way, plenty of smoke, loose draw, and I do see that it did needed a little relight if left too long but other than that I would repurchase again.

Good smoke, a nice change for me. I usually smoke full bodied.

In my opinion this is not a full flavor cigar it burnt well but lacked the flavor. the biggest problem I had with it is it cam unravelled in my mouth wich really bugs me. I'm probably not going to buy this one again.

I got this in a sampler pack, but given the chance i probably would not purchase them alone. I found the drag to be tough and not a whole lot of smoke produced.

"Spice Reveals a Great Smoke"
While I am somewhat new to the cigar scene I thought it would be worth it to put my two cents in on this great smoke. I ordered a sampler and allowed them to mellow for 3 weeks. Tried a toro, here are my thoughts.
Initially very spicy (and I like full flavor maduros) off-putting but subsides quickly into a smooth but flavorful smoke. Cherry and sweet-malt, followed by smooth woody flavors until the end. There was a point when an uneven burn started which I had to staunch by re-lighting around the vein which was burning too fast.
A good overall smoke at a great value. I would suggest letting them sit a while. Comments on dead cigars may be overblown as construction seems consistent throughout my sampler, I will edit this post if I get one with anything less than a good (80) draw.
