I recently purchased a bundle of these as I like the American Market Selection boxed cigars. Their burn and flavor was just as great. These are now my go to everyday smoke. Nice aroma and smooth mellow flavor. I will definitely purchase again. Thank you Rocky Patel and Famous Smoke!!
Medium body. Smooth. Good draw and burn. Great price. A very good every day smoke on the front porch with a friend.
These should not share the Rocky Patel American Market Selection name. I read the other reviews and immediately bought 2 bundles. I was very excited to get my ?almost as good as the real thing? RP AMS sticks. Those other reviewers didn?t get the same cigars I got, that?s for sure. The are not terrible.... you can smoke them, but a cheaper decent version of RP AMS?.... absolutely not. The draw is too loose, even after a few months of proper humidification. The taste is ok but in no way similar to RP AMS. The construction, appearance, burn are all ok at best, but certainly not good. Anyone considering buying these likely tried the RP R80 Connecticut ?factory selects? actually factory seconds . Now those were a decent quality, cheap, good tasting alternative to the RP AMS. I bought several bundles of those and smoked them in place of my favorite smokes until famous no longer carried them. These are not even anywhere close to the R80 Connecticut. They aren?t even good for the price. I missed the opportunity to return them because I waited to see if I could fix them in my Humi, I couldn?t. I?ve given away all I can. The remaining bundle will be given away at the golf course or hunting camp one or two at a time to my non cigar smoker friends and certainly never be purchased again. In the world of $10 and $20 good cigar, the RP AMS is already kind of a discount cigar. Just smoke the real ones, and if you want super cheap sticks, definitely look elsware. Even at $2 each, these are junk. If you want a good, cheap Connecticut wrapper smoke, try famous buenos naturales.
