This is my go to cigar.Rocky Patel is on fire,he is one of the best blenders,Period !!!!! 10 short years in the Biz, Cigar biz. Very smooth and flavorful.1990 blend is a very consistant cigar.I also am a big fan of his Old World Reserve Maduro, a must try for all.I would also like to put in a good word for the Decade as well.Spend the money these cigars I talk about are the best of the best. Now go smoke.
From the first one I smoked, I found the cigar that became my home base for comparison. I always keep a box in the humidor. This is by far my favorite!

These are great. I continue to try other makers and sizes, but keep thinking I'd rather have one of these.
Smoke one of these last night and wow was I impressed. Typical perfect RP construction and burn with tons of rich creamy smoke. Never harsh like some maduros I have smoked. This thing is so smooth and almost sweet on your palate. Must try!
This is a very good cigar and I agree with the other guy who says under rated. This was medium to full bodied, burned well and tasted good through the finish. I'm definitely getting more of these
Great taste and smell
I will be going back to this cigar for a while.
I am relatively new to smoking cigars but have found this cigar to be one of my favorites so far. The only issue I have experienced was the burn but it always seems to correct itself. Very satisfied with this cigar.
the rocky patel vintage line is perhaps one of their best. I have tried thee 90, 92, and the 99 vintage sticks(smoked several of each vintage). While all are great smokes, i prefer the 90 vintage sticks the best. This stick is just so smooth, and mild, it is hard to believe you're smoking a cigar, as it is just so smooth and mild smoking. the draw is almost perfect, perhaps just on a scoche on the hard draw(and i mean damn near perfect). the flavor is full bodied, but mild. the burn is even and slow, with a tendency to extinguish if left for a few mins. the ash is firm, uniform, and drops after about an inch and a half. All in all, this well constructed, great tasting, mildly aromatic, and beautiful looking cigar is simply a dream to smoke. Wether you're sitting watching your favorite sporting event, or while socializing with friends in public. this cigar has found a place in my humidor until i can no longer get them.... wether you buy a single stick or an entire box, you just can't go wrong....
appearance and construction flawless, the box press and outstanding and stayed consistent throughout the smoke. pre draw was full of hints of cocoa, and coffee the anticipation was building. Draw was nice and effortless. The smoke right creamy and with a bit of an oily taste during the first and second thirds. This cigar does great with a cocktail and I chose to add some kahlua and I ve also paired it with a nice port and this seemed like the perfect pairing for me. I don t care for cigars that are spicy or peppery and this cigar is perfect medium bodied cigar.
