Vintage By Rocky Patel 1990 Torpedo cigars are handmade with a tantalizing blend of 5-yr-aged Dominican & Nicaraguan fillers with a vintage '90 Maduro wrapper. The smoke is medium-bodied, creamy, perfectly-balanced, and teeming with dark, rich tobacco flavor. Outstanding, to say the least!
cant say anything bad about these sticks lover the creamy taste and smooth draw
These cigar is fantastic! Great draw, nice finish, great flavor!
Was my first Torpedo. These Patel's are great. This one had a great Cherry smell to it, and is one of the best Cigars I have ever had. A little spendy if you are on a tight budget.Never was much of a Patel fan, but I am now.
Watch out premium cigars, a new contender has entered the arena. This is a truly fantastic experience.Having read a handful of reviews that recommend the RP 1990, I picked up this torpedo from my tobacconist today. I initially thought I was in for another dud, because the cigar I had did not perform remarkably well pre light and at the very beginning. Pre light the smell and flavor were just that of another bargain stick. The initial flavors upon lighting were just basic tobacco and dry wood, nothing to get excited over.About 1/3 in, this cigar opens up and becomes truly remarkable. There is a leathery sweetness that persists throughout the cigar that is like nothing I have experienced. It is smooth, woody, molasses sweet, oily, with a flawlessly perfect draw and a ton of smoke output. It?s a long lasting stick. I?m nearing the end of mine after about 90 minutes, and I smoke fast.Flavor after the first third develops better than possibly anything I have ever had. Burn and mouthfeel are perfect. It?s creamy and interesting, in that it seems to fluctuate between mild and sweet, and then medium and leathery. It?s giving me everything I could ask for.In my humidor, I have Ashtons, Avos, Davidoffs, Padrons...and this $8 cigar has delivered at least an equal quality to any of those premiums. This one has permanently cemented itself in my wheelhouse of cigars I will seek out, and love.
