“Christmas came early for me this year as my bundle of R4 Torpedos showed up on Christmas Eve. At first glimpse you notice a really nicely constructed smoke. Heavy is weight and firm to the touch. The Maduro wrappers are excellent hardly any imperfections. I like the short torpedo tip, it reminds me of a Mini Belicoso, not too long or pointy. Upon lighting the taste is a bit peppery but not hot or too spicy just enough to remind you that you are smoking a cigar. The pepper slowly faded and gave way to leather and a bit of chocolate. Once reaching the last 3 inches the pepper miraculously came back (again to remind you that you are smoking) and continued to build until the finish. I like my cigars to finish a bit spicy since my palate has become immune to the flavors after 90 minutes of smoke. And oh yes thats how long it took to smoke. The draw was typical Rocky, not too tight but not to loose, just right. The burn was great just a slight boating but easily fixed with a twist or two. I only ashed once on this thing so the build is nice, great peppery ash. Overall a good smoke and if you factor in the cost a great smoke. This is no Olde World but for this price you cant beat it. This will probably be a regular in my box along with my RP Sun Growns and my CI Legends Rocky's.”

“For anyone who's a big RP fan, this cigar has it all: Excellent RP quality, a prefect draw, volumes of rich, satisfying smoke, and a price that lets it take up residence in your humidor as a go-to smoke. With the RP R4, Rocky has created another big winner. Don't miss out. Savor his victory for yourself!”

“My friend and I split a 25 mazo of the maduro torpedo beauty (Rocky Patel R4). I received the package at my place and once it arrived I tore open the package to take my first sniff of this beauty. I stacked my humi minus one. That smoke was accompanying me to the Yanks/Orioles game. I couldn't be a bit more happy lighting this puppy up. Right off the bat, the hint of peppery goodness filled my palette followed by some creamy earthy insanity. An enjoyable smoke all around. This smoke is consistent and awesome right to the end. To me the Edge is the epitomy of cigars and the R4 is right up there as Edge's little brother. I don't feel it is as complex as the Edge, but serves as a great alternative. Rocky continues to amaze me and will definetly make this smoke part of my regulars.”

“Sitting in the desert with no humidor, there is not an option to let your smokes age. Hesitated to get these (7" Double Corona Corojo) but an RP for the price couldn't be passed up. Took a couple weeks to burn through them all, had to use a field-expedient (zip-lock) humidor but these maintained their RP quality down to the last stick - did not have any draw problems from the changing temp/humidity like I have had with other brands (Graycliff being the worst). Durability in a combat zone is definitely a plus. After MRE's there is no 'palette' left to distinguish pepper from cedar from... but great taste is great taste, the tremendous amounts of smoke kept the wonderful aroma lingering. And BZ's to the CI Staff - no extra shipping costs to APO adresses, smokes arriving in a week or less, still fresh and smokable from the day they show up in mail-call, outstanding customer service at all times!!! You have a customer for life!”
