Yeah, I'm a Rookie. I wanted a mild, petite cigar to "practice" with and this one footed the bill. Very good burn and very mellow. Sitting on the deck, puffing on my RP Jr, sipping on a lil' cognac and listening to some jazz on the box. Life is good.
Anybody who has bought these in the past few months knows that these are not the same medium Sumatra wrappers with that nutty sweet taste with a bite. These are dark Maduro wrappers that are no where near the flavorful little cigars I use to love. Famous should go through their stock and stop delivering these Naturals when ordered because they really either the dark Sumatra variety, or Maduro that is mis-labeled.
I was unsure of these little cigars at. First I did sacrifice one to see the binder and filler. To my surprise, they are well made long filler no floor sweepings, and they are worth every penny. The taste is what I find in a mild Connecticut cigar, very creamy with a nutty flavor.
Wonderful cigars. Great taste and construction, but just one problem with them. They are so good for a junior cigar, you'll wish it was full size.
The Rocky Patel Connecticut Juniors were the best cigars I have ever had. Small enough to smoke in a short time, but they last long enough to make it worth your while. If you like a small cigar, not a cigarillo, and a natural wrapper with a smooth, consistent burn, these are the cigars for you.
Very good small quick smoke.
Mild smooth smoking cigar. Great if you just want a short smoke.
I recieved a box of 50 as a freebe. I enjoy them immensely. I shared them with several friends and they all had very favorable feedback. I'll keep a stock of them always in the humidor for a quick smoke alternative.
Wonderfully surprising!Medium to hard draw especially after relight cold.Good Smooth Flavor, not spicy.
Well my best friend/cigar smoking buddie and I gave it the "The Ted and Warden" test on the point system we use and rated this cigar a 8.5 on flavor,draw and taste.What a impressive little cigar and great if you dont have time for a 2 hour plus cigar but if you take your time with this little guy you can get about a hour of a enjoyment out of it.these were a freebe package deal or probably wouldn't have bought them but now that I tryed them ,I will definately buy some when these are gone.
These are really great for a quick smoke, but quick they are, maybe 15 minutes max unless you re really trying to take your time. The consistency, burn, appearance and construction are all perfect. The draw is fine but a little on the loose side, I find that they smoke better if I use a small bullet punch instead of a cutter. The taste is mild and one dimensional but good the whole way to the nub. NO complexity whatsoever. They taste very similar to the American market selection line, which is precisely why I bought these. I ve smoked about 15 out of a box of 40 and they just keep getting better. I just ordered my second box of 40 so I ll have a chance at letting some of them age. If you re looking for short, tasty, in expensive and mild, this is your smoke.
