I generally prefer a mild to medium smoke, and that is exactly what this stick is all about. One of the best overall, construction, burn, taste experiences I've had. If you like the RP Connecticut you'll like this one and vice versa. A must try!
I was excited to try this RP stick after reading so many reviews regarding it's mellow, creamy flavor. I've burned a few now, and, unfortunately, haven't experienced that yet. This just reminds me of how flavor hits everyone's palate differently, so reviews should also be considered with that in mind (even this one). What I found was a much sharper flavor of spicy, woody tones and pepper. Sometimes I get this at the initial light with certain cigars but they become more tame as I smoke them. That doesn't happen with this one. The flavor is consistent throughout, however, never mellow, which tends to overpower any creaminess that may be lurking underneath. Not a bad smoke if that's what you're looking for but, when expecting something much smoother and leisurely, this one doesn't measure up. Perhaps more seasoning in the humidor will soften this one for me.
Very well constructed, burn is even, smooth and mild withgreat flavor. The R P AMS will be my reward cigar. A little too costly for my daily smoke.
Simply the best. Super creamy. words cannot describe the taste of this top shelf smoke, every serious smoker I know has this on their favorite list and we all keep plenty in the stash for ourselves. Way to good to give away. perfect draw and burn. a perfect 10 in my book. could be cigar of the year. all beginners should try this one so they know what a great mild smoke is.
Very smooth, even burn. I really love the smooth, mild flavor and even burn.
This cigar is awesome, perfect draw, awesome taste, and great construction....couldnt have asked for more.
A handsome cigar that lives up to its press. Mellow, smooth to the end...hint of spice...excellent burn. Nothing agressive about this cigar...It is delicate and tasty. A very pleasant smoke.
This is an amazing smoke. Great taste and flavor. Good strong ash, and a great draw. I could easily see this taking the place of my other RP favorites. You will love this cigar if you favor the medium strength cigar. Perfect 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can t say enough about these sticks. I have smoked about a half dozen of them and I can t find a complaint. The quality of these smokes is evident from first glance, to feel, to smell, to smoke, all the way to the nub. I m a reformed cigarette smoker. I know supposedly you aren t supposed to take big inhales from cigars but that s how I like to smoke. Along with these I got a best of mild cigars sampler and there were a few in there that were ok. I did really liked the helix x552..... Until I smoked these. The draw is perfect, not loose, not tight. I can puff on them and I get a nice creamy thick smoke. Or I can take a nice smooth inhale every few puffs and it s tasty and satisfying. The construction is beautiful. They have a nice oily look and feel to the wrapper. At 65% in my humidor they have a nice firm sponginess to them. I was able to smoke the whole thing with only minor lighter repairs to keep the burn even. It holds a nice 1.5-2 grayish ash. I bought a sampler including the rest of the rocky Patel American market selection sizes and I enjoyed all of them. They all taste about the same, good all the way to the nub. Since buying my 5 pack of these robustos and my sampler I have purchased a box of these robustos and I m pretty sure this is my go to smoke. I do wish they would produce these in a 4.5x44 or so petit for my shorter smokes. Great affordable smoke. I have also purchased the best of rocky Patel sampler and look forward to trying the Cuban, Nicaraguan and rosado lines.
One of my Favorites Great taste Makes you feel really NICE!

Saw these new AMS's on the Famous home page and new I had to try a box of Robusto's. Since I also got the free five pack, I fired one up on night one. After toasting the foot, took a good draw and wow, What A Smoke! I don't know about all these descriptions about "hints of Madagascar cinnamon", but I'll tell you this is one mellow smoke, tons of smoke, with a great light grey ash that stay in place darn near half way down. I used a plug cutter, and the head stayed good and firm the whole way down. This cigar probably has a most consistent burn, ranking right up there with a Monticristo. Great construction. If you're a Rocky cigar lover, try this one. I think it's one of his best. I would rank this one over a CAO Black, for comparison. Burned my finger on this one.
