The Honduran classic is my favorite RP so far. Very easy draw, good burn, nice and smooth.
I must say I just love this cigar! I have yet to have had a bad one, great burn, great ash and that wonderful Honduran flavor. I think this is Rocky Patel's best kept secret!
This Cigar is well worth the Investment. Try them and be Impressed. They could become a regular for my Humidor.
I came across these serving in Iraq, and they have become my favorite "stock" cigar. A nice balance of strength and flavor, I have ordered several boxes over the years - am split between these and the 92 Vintage as to which is my favorite, but I always find myself wishing I had bought a box of Honduran classic than whatever else I bought on a whim because of a sale.
Nice tasting smoke with a good draw,have to get used to the shape
It was my first box pressed cigar. Quite impressive. As usual with RP,excellent draw. Takes a bit getting use to for someone use to a tougher draw. Very flavorful, perfect ash and consistent burn. I sparked one up right out of the UPS box...excellent. 2 months in the humi for the balance..can't wait.
After sitting in the humidor for a week I decided to fire one up. Great taste, lots of smoke and an easy draw. One of my new favorites.
Huge fan of Rocky Patell and these is truly one of his best cigars.
I got a the Rocky Patel 10-cigar sampler pack having fallen in love with the Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Robustos. Don't get me wrong, all Rocky Patels (or at least the ones I've tried) are great cigars. The Honduran classic falls somewhere between the spiciness of the Sun Grown, and the sweetness of the Vintage 1992. Everything about this cigar was perfect, nice smooth "classic cigar " flavor with that silky smooth aftertaste you get with all the Rocky Patels, an easy draw, a perfect wrap, and a great burn. My personal preference is the '92 Vintage but this is still a great cigar. Rocky Patel is the way to get yourself started on cigars, priced affordably just slightly below some "premium" cigars, and a flavor that is light years away from cheap humidor fillers.
I ordered a 5 pack of these on a sale from Famous Smoke,and enjoyed them very much. I have had the pleasure of smoking the factory seconds in the past and thought they were a great cigar,(even better with time in the humidor), I havent had the opprotunity to be able to purchase them again because they are rarely available. So I got tired of waiting and recently ordered a deal Famous was offering for the Toro's.If you want a first rate cigar, and are willing to pay a little bit, then Rocky Patels are the cigar for you. I know I will be ordering more in the future.
