"Don't miss out..."
Pay no attention to alot of the other reviews. I don't know if some of the other reviewers are new to smoking cigars and don't realize that with any hand-rolled cigar you're gonna' get a plugged one once in a while but I have been smoking premiums for over 40 years and this is a very good cigar. No..this is a great cigar. Got a couple in a sampler and I thought they were delicious. Drew well, nice construction and a very nice taste with a black cherry undertone. The wife even thought it had a pleasant aroma. Comparable to the 1961 but for less money. Will definitely order more. Don't miss out on this cigar.

I received this cigar in a sampler and enjoyed the cigar. It was smooth for a full body cigar. I liked the 1961 slightly better but would not hesitate to add these to my collection.

"Would not buy again"
It was stated these cigars were well aged but I don't think they were aged more than six months. The start and the middle were good but it left me a little nauseated at the finish. I've smoked Rocky's Edge and rated at 94 and highly recommend it to anyone who will listen. This smoke pales in comparison and I will not recommend it to anyone. It had a tight draw, an uneven burn and would go out frequently if I wasn't continually correcting the burn with my torch lighter. The head of the cigar started to unravel half way through. I believe I gave it a fair trial smoking it down to the last inch and a quarter but it was at this point I couldn't take it anymore. I'll smoke a great cigar down to half-inch. This smoke was far from a great cigar.

"A hooker couldn't smoke this thing."
I must say the few puffs I did get tasted pretty good, but after 20 minutes of fooling around trying to get this baby to draw right I chucked it in the trash. First I cut a plug out and lit it, wouldn't draw. Next I sent a 1/16" rod down through it a couple times ( this usually fixes the occassional tight roll you run into), still wouldn't draw. Next I cut the whole tip off figuring that might do it, nope. If I had a pipe, I'd a chopped the sumbitch up and smoked it but I don't so I chucked it. Not much worse than getting a bad smoke when you were expecting something good.

"Would Buy Again!"
These not only impressed me but my next door neighbor who is a long time cigar smoker.

"I would put my signature on another cigar"
Well this cigar was the best of the 3 new blends but its strike 3 for all the new cigars for me. A good smoke by any means but still leaves me wondering if these cigars were all that. I would have been buying the 12 sampler every day but the only real good smokes were the 1961s so the money was worth it just for them. Still a loyal fan of Rocky, just not going to buy any more of these.

Don't get me wrong, this is a perfectly passable smoke and I smoked it without resting. Some peeling on the wrapper, slight damage to the foot, and draw was perfect. Room note was excellent and my fiancee complimented it. The cigar starts out fierce. A very spicy black pepper taste. It continued with black pepper and picked up a tiny bit of coffee 2/3 through and reduced strength to about M-F body. Burn required tending as it would tend to go out if left for more than a minute or so, and had a tendency to go uneven a tiny bit.
Not complex, not really much of a changing flavor but decent and taste was acceptable. Will let the others I have rest for 6 months or a year then try again. I'd give it a 75.

I got this in part of a 12 cigar sampler. I would have to say this was one of the best Cigars in the sampler. Smooth taste and draws well. Towards the end of the Cigar though the taste when away, usually that's the best part! but with this Cigar it isn't. The taste is when you start the cigar and towards the middle.

"Just as the Description States"
A clean cut, an easy light, even burn. As stated, a full spicy smoke that mellowed out beautifully. Purchased in the A P Castro sampler, I can't wait to try out the other RP blends. Very enjoyable.

The pre-light draw had a pleasant taste as did the aroma which really kicked up while the foot toasted quite well. I love the taste of molasses and raisins and the first third was great and evolves into a richer,smoother tobacco flavors all the while burning nicely to a nub . Nice work AC.
