My girlfriend got me a tin of these cigars and I just had my first one. It is just as good at the full size Vintage 1992's. The draw was smooth from beginning to the nub at the end. The smoke was rich, smooth, and luxourious. The ash held together for about 3/4 of the length. And the taste was as good as it gets. The other smokers I work with were, as always, envious. Even the non-smokers walking by gave me compliments on the aroma. You can't ask for much better.
I have enjoyed the Rocky Patel Junios 12 yr tins for a while now. Recently I have received some bad cigars our of these tins. Out of the 5 you get, 3 will burn right down the middle, spongy in feel, harsh on the tongue and the taste is is just smoke. The other two, I would find hard to draw and would have to use a poker to get any kind of draw. So has anyone else experienced what I am experiencing? All I see are the ratings in the low to mid 90s and I do not find this at all. I have tried to contact Rocky Patel but no response to my complaint.
The most interesting and tasty cigar, I ve ordered from Famous Smoke. It was my first box-pressed, and I was a little conscious about it, but it was fantastic.
I was gifted one of these yesterday by a fellow cigar smoker. I usually go after the Full-bodied Pepins or like type cigars. I have smoked these along time ago and was surprised at what I had been missing...After an easy light, the cigar produced an enjoyable coffee / spice like taste reminiscent of a good Cuban cigar. As the cigar burned, and it had a razor sharp burn line, the flavors remained constant but never over powering. This cigar is a great cigar to get reacquainted with if you want to take a break from those Full-bodied powerhouses that are everywhere nowadays. For the money....Great smoke...
nice burn, tons of flavor, lots of smoke every draw
It's the first perfect RP I've smoked. I have tried most of the other RP series and they have been disappointing-not this one. Wow!
This cigar has never let me down. I strongly suggest trying this cigar, it has every great quality a cigar should have.
PERFECT DRAW,WELL MADE,I CONSIDER THIS CIGAR A MEDIUM STRENGTH. MOST FULL STRENGTH CIGARS, MAKE ME DIZZY.
O.K.for me, it's for 1) the taste, 2) the draw, 3) the burn, of course, if you have good draw and burn the construction must be good, as well as appearance, 4)consistency, meaning each and every cigar should be the same, now I have found all of this in the Vintage 1992's and there is this as well (which is, to me a surprise and I'm not sure how it would be rated) I can not smoke in my house it is my wifes only request since I refuse to quit smoking cigars, so I smoke on the front porch, so I go out tonite and light up a R.P. Vint. 1992,I get about 3 puffs between each commercial break, which is a little less then 1 minute between puffs, (I prefer at least 1 minute but I'm also fond of prime time T.V. so I push it) but the thing that has really pleased me about this is that when I got back out approx. 8 to 9 minutes later I find the cigar still burning! and burning even at that, now this is the 4th or 5th of these that I have smoked and they have all been the same except this 1 or any other cigar brand I have smoked, don't remember any cigar still being lit for more then a couple minutes, so I get my 3 puffs and go back in to the boob tube, now this time I timed it 9 minutes, I got out pick up the gar and yep still lit, and the ash is now 1 inch long, thats a great cigar! o.k. my 9 minutes is up going out for more!
Wow.... what a wonderful surprise. Silky smooth and beautiful to look at, it was even better to smoke. Perfect white ash, perfect draw. I removed the bands and smoked it right to my fingers. What a delicious cigar! Taste stayed as good right to the end. Just bought a box.
Smooth creamy nutty taste, with hints of chocolate. Very Nice ! It really reminds me of the Cuban Cohiba Maduro 5 Secreto.Medium cigar that burns razor sharp, with a snug but nice draw and lots of thick white smoke. Construction is flawless.About the beginning of the second third, I started getting hints of caramel. Ash held on for about an inch and a half.Very pleasant aroma also. Won these on the auction for song and a dance, but would pay the asking price. They are wellworth it !! For a small cigar it burns slow. Half way point hints of spice and leather are showing up. Needless to say that this stick has found a home in my humidor ! Anyone who enjoys maduro would like this dark natural. Rocky Patel...I take off my hat to you.
