Medium to full bodied. Box pressed but a few rolls with the fingers restores roundness. Even burn with nice long ash. Flavorful begining to end. At this price I passed a few on to friends and their reports back were a good balanced enjoyable cigar. Not as spicy as some other Rocky Patels. The free box of 40 Juniors sealed the deal.
I received two of these as part of a sampler. Smoked the first one after a week; it tunneled so badly I ended up tossing it. Smoked the second one tonight figuring that over a month in the humidor would have helped it. Nope, same problems - it needs constant relighting or it either tunnels or goes out completely. The flavor is decent, but due to the construction issues I will buy no more of these. I've had better made cigars at half the cost. I expect better from a Rocky Patel.
Bought some on a Christmas special was hooked immediately, quickly bought 26 more. Spicy, chocolate flavor right to the nub. Prefer it to some of my more expensive brands in my Humidor!!!!!!
I will be stocking these in my humidors asap! A Very good tasty aromatic well blended consistent toothy cigar. A mus try folks!
This Cigar is well worth the Investment. Try them and be Impressed. They could become a regular for my Humidor.
Just finished my first one of these with the Curojo wrapper from a sampler. I've had very few cigars this good! Rich and mellow all the way to the nub. Will definitely buy more.
From the beginning, the cut even with a fresh guillotine produced small trimmings which continued throughout the first 3rd. After resting in a well-charged humidor for a week, still difficult to light and keep lit. Once lit and after removing the small pieces from my mouth, the second 3rd was creamy and delicious. And the final 3rd finished richly on the palate. Lots of thick smoke. A solid B. I did enjoy them but they are not high on my repurchase list.
I've smoked a number of these and have really enjoyed every one. I've tried the Robusto and Torpedo sizes and they have all been great. I love the flavor ... I've read others describe "notes of floral" and wondered what they meant. The RP Honduran Natural flavor makes me think of this, plus a hint of spicy-ness/peppery-ness that comes and goes. Burn? Consistency? Draw? Appearance? Taste? Construction? This one rates well on all fronts from my experiences. Plus, it's affordable to boot.
Got 2 of the toros in a 14 pack RP sampler. I was very impressed, a medium to full bodied smoke. Even burn with a nice long ash. Flavorful from start to finish, just enough spice & peppery flavor. Box pressed doesn't bother me. I smoked the 2 from the sampler, & as karma would have it, it was the monster deal the next day ($2.50 a stick)...I'm in for a box, these are GREAT cigars...(I should have bought more).
I must say I just love this cigar! I have yet to have had a bad one, great burn, great ash and that wonderful Honduran flavor. I think this is Rocky Patel's best kept secret!
I bought a sampler and this is the best one of smoked out of the sampler. It was Amazing everthing from the looks(pressed)to the taste,wrapper,filler,cap,burn. I loved it all the end of the stick is the best get a chocolate and fruit taste which surprised me.LOL
