You'll find big, full-bodied flavor in these Rocky Patel Sun Grown Factory Selects Junior cigars. Handmade with long-aged Dominican & Nicaraguan longfillers, and zesty, long-aged Ecuadorian sun-grown wrappers, these are top-flight cigars at a fantastic price! Presented in a BOX of 40 cigars.
Tried one box and had to order more. They will be a regular in my humidor from now on. Lots of flavor and it can hold its own with the big boys. I have not found a flaw in these 'factory selects'.
I like these little things. I have found that they give the smoothest smoke if you use a small bullet punch rather than a cutter or a full sized punch. As others have said this is a FULL FLAVORED BIG CIGAR in a little package. They are a little harsh for the first .5 inch then they mellow out nicely to be an enjoyable little smoke. Even burn, good draw, excellent construction, consistency and appearance. Taste is decent. I m hoping they mellow out a little more with some time in the humi. I feel that there is a labeling problem though. In the picture it shows sun grown factory select on the box. The ones I got say juniors natural. I read another review saying the juniors natural are different than they used to be and they are now darker and more full flavored than they used to be. So I m guessing that this is what you get if you order the juniors natural or the juniors Sumatra. If you want a full flavored quick smoke, check these out. I love my RP American market selection mild sticks so I plan on buying a box of the RP Juniors Conneticut as well. I m guessing they ll taste similar.
I wrote another review saying that I ordered juniors Sumatra, and what I got said juniors natural. I was mistaken. I ordered juniors Sumatra and the box I got said jusniors Sumatra. My confusion was caused by 2 things. 1, in the description and in the picture these are called sun grown factory selects . But on the box they are just called juniors Sumatra. 2, another customer reviewed the Juniors Natural and said the natural isn t the natural he s always loved and he s pretty sure that now they are just the Sumatra. Now that I ve cleared that up this is a pretty good little smoke. A little harsh for the first 1/4-1/2 inch but after that pretty smooth and flavorful. Like other reviews have indicated this is a BIG FULL FLAVORED CIGAR in a LITTLE PACKAGE. I ve found they give the smoothest smoke when you poke a small hole with a bullet punch, or in my case a golf tee. Great consistency, burn, draw and construction. Taste is ok. I m hoping they ll mellow a little in the humi. I plan on ordering more of these at some point and trying the juniors Conneticut. I love my RP American Market Selection Robustos and I m hoping the little conneticuts are similar in taste with a quicker smoke.
Some very iffy rolls here. The first one had a good sized hole down the center, and a very easy and uneven draw for the first third. But the flavor was very good once the burn evened out. Nutty, roasty and meaty with a little bite to the throat, not too dry and lots of mellow taste. Good value.
