Best cigar available in my opinion, the consistency and burn only at 90% tpically happen together and very infrequently.
This cigar has so much value for the $ . I tried m first about 6 months ago and will continue to stay with these very fine cigars
One of the most consistent mild cigars out there. Great burn, satisfying flavor and tremendous overall cigar.
I love this cigar late in the afternoon or after dinner. Smooth a mildly flavorful without being overpowering.
I ve been into Connecticut wrappers lately. I m really loving this cigar. What I like most is the big size and the taste. Appearance color and Sheen are above average but the size is first impression which is great. Consistency is above average. Draw is excellent. Burn is very good. Looking at it at it now at the two third point and it s very consistent. Construction is very nice. Finally The Taste, This is the part I love. the last 1/3 is excellent! . To me it just tastes like a good strong cigar with great taste it gets better the farther it burns. Sorry I m not very good at figuring out the chocolates and nuts and berries that it taste like. Bottom line is I love the taste, construction is great and the 60 ring guage feels great. Smoking this you re smoking a real cigar.
I wrote this review on Cigar Geeks but thought I d share it here. I don t usually rate with less than three examples smoked, but I feel compelled to rate this one. I wouldn t pan a cigar with only one smoke, but this was so good I have to share my thoughts. I m fairly new to this pastime, but this what I experienced. 30 days in the humidor. Nice looking, the foot showed perfect book construction. Felt a little firm, made me wonder if it would be tight. Pre-light it had the usual Connecticut hay aroma. First puffs were very mild - lots of creamy smoke and a great draw. Construction was flawless, no corrections or re-lights throughout. By the end of the first third I detected cherries. Not a mouthful of bings - more of the aroma of cherrywood in the smoker. Fantastic. The flavor slowly builds like a good blues solo. The last third had something I ve never experienced in a cigar - I tasted beef jerky. What a stick! I ve only had a couple of Rocky s, but I ll try more from this brand for sure. 120 minutes of pleasure! Deconstruct of the 1 nub showed a very thin wrapper and the binder was rolled right into the filler! Overall a thing of beauty.
If your looking for a stick that wont burn the hell out of your palate, this RP is for you. Well constructed, even burn, creamy, dense smoke feel. Lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Thoroughly enjoyed it, hope you will too.
I enjoy just about everything from Rocky Patel but particularly more mild to mild-med and this is a nice balance of flavor and strength. The Vintage 1990 Junior claims to be medium but I find it a touch stronger than that. These are toasty and definitely the most flavorful Connecticut cigar I ve had, a perfect companion to coffee. As a comparison, these are the same size and price nearly as Avo Puritos, which are also excellent but far more mild and creamier. My one and only complaint is that wonderful, open Rocky Patel draw isn t quite there but it s also not a difficult or tight draw, so hopefully it s just an off tin. If you like a bit more zest in your Connecticut smoke I would highly recommend these, especially if you like a shorter smoke during the day that picks up and re-lights perfectly all the way to the nub.
Wonderful stick, buttery almost sweet about 1/4 way in, love it with a nice scotch ** I do not like a heavy smoke with scotch so that the flavors do not hit hard together . Even burn, good burn time about 1 1/2 hr nice finish. Rocky P always does a great job.
Great Stick, I am a complete Beginner when it comes to smoking cigars but after consecutive days having a Brickhouse, Diamond Crown JC, %26 this last week. The Rocky gets two Thumbs up and will become a staple in my Humi from now on.
