Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 cigars are the latest addition to the highly-rated 1990, 1992 & 1999 Vintage series. They boast a perfectly-aged Cameroon wrapper deftly rolled around an 8-year-aged Nicaraguan-Dominican core. This medium-bodied cigar teems with rich, complex flavors; moreover, the Cameroon wrapper augments the smoke with a lingering sweet spice that stimulates the palate, plus hints of cedar, dark chocolate, and espresso on a nutty finish. Another masterpiece from R.P.! Order yours now.
This is one of my favorite sticks from Rocky. I love Cameroon wrappers for their sweet and spicy flavor profile and the thinner ring gauge really helps to make those flavors stand out among the Nicaraguan & Dominican fillers
Great smoke the whole way through.
An outstanding smoke. Complex and flavorful. If you get one that tastes bad it was mishandled in someway. Try another
This is an excellent smoke from beginning to end. Even burn, smooth draw, and great flavors. You will not be disappointed.
Great Smoke, smooth all the way through.
Nice smooth,no vein cameroon wrapper. Smelled great on prelite. *First 1/3 was pretty mild, no cameroon spice.*2/3 it picked up some, but not too much-still pleasent.*3/3 Picked up a little more spice,into medium. Burned even, no relites, overall a GREAT smoke if you're looking for something Cameroon mild-medium. Which I was, went great w/ Cuba Libre & a Bowl game.
This cigar was very well constructed & has a slightly chocolate, earthy scent with a nice tobacco sweetness at the foot. This is a medium bodied cigar with a mild/medium strength. The draw was loose, even for a Rocky, but this cigar burned cool all the way down to about an inch. The burn wasn't quite perfect but didn't require any touching up at all & the light gray ash stacked up nicely in thirds. Each draw produced quite a bit of smoke with flavors like creamy caramel, leather, chocolate & spice throughout the smoke. The finish leaves a spice on the tongue but it's never overpowering. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these excellent smokes.
Over time this has become the featured cigar in my rotation partly because the Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon was discontinued and it is always enjoyable with my evening whisky.Occasionally tunneling and burn are issues, but mostly the sticks draw and burn very well. Cameroon wrappers are extremely fragile
I m on a new taste adventure with Camaroon wrappers and recently received a number of 5 packs of different brands to sample, including the RP Vintage 2003 Camaroon Robusto, as I ve generally been happy with RP cigars. So I couldn t believe the foul taste that I got from the one I just smoked. It tasted like an elephant house smells. Out of Africa? Camaroon, got it? Almost nauseating. I couldn t smoke it, and don t dare try another. Maybe it s just that one, but they re going back. Not taking any chances.. Other than that, it smoked well, but I still have to rate it a zero. Like 0.
Tasted bland and dry. Burned even, but fast and hot. Seemed like the filler was missing some filler, as it was too soft, almost hollow. Maybe I got a bad one, as I can't believe RP would make this thing on purpose.
