Rocky Patel Connecticut

A deliciously subtle, exclusive handmade from Rocky Patel cigars.

It would be impossible for me to count how many of these I've burned through in the past few months, and I can tell you confidently that those who crave their cigars mellow in body yet long on flavor will go cuckoo for cocoa puffs over the RP Connecticut cigar line. Given the quality, the reasonable price (more on that later), and the pedigree - Patel is the maker of the 95-rated Sun Grown maduro, 94-rated Decade, and many other fan-favorite blends. 

Suffice to say, I've been extremely excited about this cigar. Subtle, smooth and loaded with crisp, soothing flavors that can satisfy just about any palate, the Connecticut by Rocky Patel is, simply put, another outstanding super premium from one of the hottest makers in the business today. As far as price....you’d probably expect this to be a $7 or $8 cigar. Nah! Instead, a remarkable $4 to $5 per cigar, only at CI.

Mild smoke
I have only smoked two, found them to be a nice mild smoke but twice they began to tunnel halfway through. They seem to be wrapped tight in the middle, I hope the two smoked are the exceptions. They finish nice after adjusting for the tunneling. Will buy again providing the rest avoid this problem.

Smooth, easy to smoke cigar. Draws well, slight hints of almonds. Has some nice subtle flavors. Can't go wrong here. I actually feel it has more flavor than the Vtg99's.

Not for me even if looking for mld stick.
Okay if you want REALLY mild and get a good price. My finding was that these were almost like not smoking and I won't get again. For this segment (mild) I actually LOVE the CAO Gold or a light Ashton. They also got soggier and looser than most sticks. I expected better. RP Edge, two different wrappers, are among my favorites, so I'm not hating on RP at all.

Very mild. Nothing complex. Ash a little flaky but construction is consistent with easy draw and cool to the nub. You won’t need to spend too much time contemplating this one, but it’s a consistent and creamy cigar that is good for the golf course or around the yard.

Not what I expected
I got a box and thought that I was going to get a mild, easy burning smoke that I could enjoy while working outdoors. These were HOT burning, constantly needed to relight, made me dizzy and burned unevenly. Suggest the price be lowered as well as the rating. Truly disappointed.

Good morning cigar.
Got this in a sampler. Aside from the fact that I nearly broke my cutter on the biggest stem I’ve ever seen (not what I expected from RP) it was great. Very flavorful for a mild Connecticut, good burn until I hit the stem. I’d give it another try in hopes that the stem was a fluke.

Flavorful and smooth BUT...
This blend is one of my favorites. HOWEVER, this batch has some burn issues. TIGHT, tough draw. Maybe when CI puts stuff on sale its from the back of the humidor or found in the warehouse ? This has been happening with more frequency to me lately, it seems.

Large and In-Charge. This cigar is 'xactly as billed. nice, slow, even burn. subtle to the max. if you've had a tough day and just want to kick-it, this is your smoke. Chillin', totally. if you like billows of smoke (i do), not gonna happen. if you want flavor to make you take notice (i do), try another smoke. if you like ez draw and mouthful of smoke (i do), ahhh, no. It is what it is and it's not givin' in.

A nicely rolled cigar clean and even burning with the medium mild flavor you'd expect from a Connecticut wrapper. The finish was a bit on the warm side but without a bit of whines. On a ten-scale I would give it an eight.

Very nice smoke with a slow burn and mild-medium strength and smooth draw.
I am a big fan of the RP'92 Vintage so I tried this one and was pleasantly surprised. RP's are always worth the cost.

Delightfully mild cigar.
As a former, but returning, cigar smoker I prefer a mild cigar. This Rocky Patel Connecticut is delightful and will be one of my favorites. Perfect!

Nice mild smoke
I enjoy this cigar because it is mild but has a nice taste. It will last almost 18 holes on the golf course. Only negative is that it does not burn as evenly as I would like.

Peppery for mild rated
Have smoked 2 cigars out of 5 pack. Good cigar but not excellent. Immediate pepper taste upon lighting which I did not expect from a mild rated cigar. However, the taste mellowed out some about half way through. Smooth draw, lot of smoke, good aroma, held ash well and slight peppery after taste. I do like the Rocky Patel line of cigars, but will try other mild rated cigars before buying these again. Would not buy as an everyday cigar or to stock up humidor.

A Mild Monster!
Wow! Great mild smoke. Started ultra-mild and I was wondering what all the talk was about. Then, about an inch in, the wonder began. The flavor built into a creamy smooth cocktail of delicious flavors without any bite or harshness. A delightful cigar that will always reside in my humidor! Cheep as well.

A decent mild to medium Connecticut
A decent everyday smoke if you can get it at a decent price. Draw is fine, construction is respectable and they taste fine. The wrapper has a tendency to fall apart and they burn inconsistently but they are worth a try.

Loved it
Bought a five pack sampler and smoked one maybe a bit too soon but WOW I sure did enjoy it. I think the staff review was very close to my experience in that this is a very mild smoke. It burned perfectly and lasted well over an hour. I will say it was by far my FAVORITE mild cigar that I have every smoked. I purchased the 60 ring which I really enjoyed. I will definitely be putting some more of these in my humidor very very soon. The construction on mine was great and the draw was excellent as well. One of my faves so far.

Rocky Patel Connecticut robusto
A mild cigar and what I expected from it. Good flavor but I had some problem with burn issues with several of them. Had hoped I just ran into a "bad" cigar but unfortunately had problems with several. A very nice, mild tasting cigar but some burn issues that made the experience less than terrific. Even so, I would purchase them again but only if they were on sale. I'm not going to pay full price for a cigar that I have to touch up several times when smoking it.

Tasty
Lots of smoke and smooth flavor. I'm new at all this but one thing I know that I like is lots of smoke and the RP Connecticut fits the bill. It's creamy smooth and though I do tend to go for medium to full blends I will continue to buy, smoke and share these.

Very good cigar for the price
I picked up a 5 pack and for the price it was an amazing deal. I enjoy light cigars for during the week after a long day at work and these were perfect for that, they burned pretty slow and they went perfect with a Blue Moon beer. I would highly recommend this.

Tasty but burns poorly
I tried a higher end Patel after these just to be sure, but I had major issues keeping these lit. I am a novice cigar smoker but found the inside of the cigar burned faster than the outside, causing the cigar to go out. Many corrections and relights needed. I have no problems with pretty much any other I've tried. Fantastic shipping though from Cigars International.

Decent but, not much more than so-so...
I got this one in a sampler pack... decent smoke, but, I din't find it to be that much of a standout... even burn, but, the draw was a little "tight" and the flavor, although mild like I like, wasn't all that spectacular. A friend gave me a couple of these (Torpedos), so, I will keep them in the humidor for a while.. good for a giveaways, or just to have somethin' to smoke when I may not want to disturb some of the sticks I have that I know are better... or maybe for one of my infamous bad rounds of golf. :-)

$1 cigars are a better experience
Worst smoke I have had in a long time, taste was terrible like an ash tray. Didn't stay lit just a very bad experience, I have had dollar cigars that were a much better experience then this. This was my last cigar our of a sampler pack, I saved it for last because I thought I would enjoy and want to order some more. I guess not.

Good Stick after some rest.
Smoked two of these from a five pack I bought. First one didn't care for after testing for a month. Second one let rest another month and was much better. Got a nice even burn and lasted for over an hour. These are a good budget Rocky Patel after some rest in your humidity to adjust to your taste. Would buy again as they are a nice Rotax in the backyard with a drink stick. Nice smoke output. Not as mild as a 5 Vegas Gold.

Excellent smoke
Received a message that my soon to be married son would like to have cigars to hand out to friends at their wedding reception. Since I'm a long time RP fan I chose Connecticut Churchills. It a great smoke for the price and should be a hit. Besides that, I like them and might as well have a smoke that's enjoyable.

I'm rather new to cigars. So, I've "shopped" around quite a bit to discover what I really like. Well, the search ended here. I'll continue to try different cigars, but the RP Connecticut is an all time favorite. Outstanding flavor, even burn and great draw are all factors in this decision.

Superb Mild to Medium Cigar
I tried this cigar based upon the reviews posted hereon and I have to say, everything I read is a proven fact. These are a GREAT cigar! While they are definitely a "mild" cigar, they have just a touch of the medium body to give a little extra bonus in taste, they are superb both in their draw, their taste and the absolutely mellow aftertaste they leave. While I prefer Rocky's to just about any cigars I've smoked including the premium Fuentes. these are, by far, the most pleasurable smokes I've enjoyed to date. I highly recommend them both to the novice and seasoned aficionado. I don't think you'll be disappointed and they are a definite bargain, to boot. They are also the perfect compliment to a fine single malt scotch with my preference being a Glenlivet or Clynelish 12.

I really enjoyed this cigar. It's got good flavor, and lots of smoke. I had a little trouble with the burn - needed a couple touch ups (even though I conditioned it properly after delivery). Honestly I've never had an RP that I didn't enjoy, even though they have such a variety of products.

Major Disappointment
I am a fan of Rocky Patel. But, the Connecticut Robusto is a disappointment. I know this is a mild cigar, but there is a difference between mild and little of no taste. It also burns unevenly and has to be relighted several times before it can be finished. Finally, the cigar leaves a metallic after taste. NOT one of Rocky Patel's better efforts.
5 out of 5
Perfect in Every Way!
I’m relatively new to cigars, so I try different “makes & models” to figure out what I truly enjoy. Well, my search is over. The RP Connecticut was perfect in every way. Outstanding draw, taste, and burn. The wrapper remained intact throughout the entire smoke, the mild taste was very satisfying, and the burn was very even from start to finish. I’ll continue to smoke other brands and types, but the RP Connecticut will be the keystone stick in my humidor for a very long time to come.

Shocking!
So my buddy Roger is raving about smoking a Rocky Patel. I remember I have a few in my humidor so I bust one out this morning for a coffee break. I start it and think it isn't bad for a morning cigar. Then the trouble starts. I am having trouble keeping it lit. After a while I just gave up on it. Around lunch time I see it still lying in my ash tray and decide to cut off the end and start again. What happened next shocked me. I cut off a half inch to find it was completely charred in the middle. Another half inch and same result. This cigar had actually burnt the middle out for a good 2 inches. No wonder I had trouble keeping it lit! Roger gets the rest of my Rocky stash as soon as I see him again.

Never again...
This is one extremely disappointing stick. As a relatively new/rookie cigar smoker, I've heard nothing but unabashed praise for Rocky Patel's creations: he's one of the best in the business, it is often claimed. So I bought a five pack of Rocky Patel Connecticut Robustos. I'm glad I didn't buy a whole box. I've smoked two of them: I won't bother smoke the rest. Construction is great with a smooth, medium-loose draw, decent smoke output, and a fairly even burn (a little hilly, but it usually corrects itself). Unfortunately, those are the only good things I can say about this. The flavor is one-dimensional and boring: I get spicy black pepper... and that's absolutely it. For a 40-45 minute stick, I expect something more flavorful... or at least one that gets more interesting as you smoke it. But, nope, it's just nothing but pepper. And the aftertaste is horrible: it tastes like somebody jammed a charred twig in my mouth. My second cigar went out after roughly the first inch: I lit it up, kept on smoking, and about halfway through, got bored and let it sit and burn itself out. And perhaps it's just me being a new smoker (never have and never will smoke cigarettes, and I've only had a few cigars before), having not yet built up a tolerance to nicotine, but this has one heck of a kick. The first one I smoked all the way to the nub made me nauseous; the second one gave me a buzz by the end of the first third. For that reason, I would not recommend this cigar as one to give your new-to-smoking friends: it might be enough to put them off smoking completely. So for me, I guess it's lesson learned: I won't be buying this cigar again.

Disappointing cigar
I am a big fan of CI. With that said, when I saw an ad for a sampler of Rocky Patel Connecticut cigars, I ordered them. What I expected was a very tasty Connecticut. What I received was very disappointing. The cream and slight spice cigar I expected was instead a non flavorful disappointment. Had I known, I would have instead ordered a box of Mark Twains, for the same price. I will be giving these to a friend, who will gladly smoke anything with a Rocky Patel label.

I usually smoke medium-full cigars, but enjoy a mild cigar. I'd call this a mild-medium cigar, with good flavor. Bought a box and haven't had a blocked cigar yet after 10 smoked. Well-made cigar, excellent draw. I recommend this cigar to anyone wanting a mild smoke from time to time.

Customer Testimonials
This is the best mild cigar I've ever tasted. Goes great with a cup of joe in the morning. Must try!
If vanilla, cream, and butter are flavor profiles you're after, don't hesitate to buy a box of these. Plus they are great sticks to give to less experienced friends who need a less robust smoke. Bonus: great price from CI.
I just tried this stick as part of the Brown Bag Sampler and it's really good. I don't generally go for the mild Connecticut cigars but this one has a lot of flavor for a Connecticut mild cigar. Rocky has outdone himself with this one. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone!
By far the best cigar I have had in a long time.
I am fairly new to the cigar circuit, prefer to try things at least 3 times before boistering my opinion and have been hesitant to write a review for that reason. That being said, on the second stick I have been able to enjoy, it has become apparent that this is the first cigar that mildly and smoothly burned its way into my heart and will most likely be the first full box that I will buy. Mild and cedary along with an all day at any time smokeability.
I like milder cigars, and I like this nice tasty smoke. They draw nice and stay cool; I'd buy these again.
Unlike most of you, I did not enjoy these at all. I got a 5 pack of the Toro. It did not burn evenly and got very bitter right at about the half-way mark. I think there are far better mild smokes for the same amount of money.
I've had problems over time with Rocky Patel consistency. This Connecticut robusto is different; great construction consistency, good draw, nice mild flavor. I smoke one cigar per day, rotating cigars including Cubans. This Patel has turned out to be one of the most reliable cigars I've bought recently.
A mild smoke that's creamy and nutty and it gets smoother and smoother the more you smoke it. The aroma off this cigar is amazing!
I am really puzzled. It must be my taste buds going, as I just got my 5 pack and was not blown away or making this stick my new best friend. Started off with a bite, but smoothed out after about 15 minutes. Draw was not particularly easy. Smoke was good, but had to work it. It was just ok for me....
Got a box of these for X-mas from my father and have been impressed from the first one I smoked. Given the price point and quality you get from a Patel, you can't go wrong. I would certainly buy another box. Great smoke.
I am what we in the military call an FNG to the cigar world. Ordered me a variety of mild cigars to get things started. RP Connecticut was the first one that I fired up and WOW!!!!! Very impressive. Consistent burn, easy draw and mild flavors for the FNG. This cigar will remain a constant in my humidor. Thanks CI for an amazing first experience.
I'm smoking my first RP Connecticut as I write this and it's very enjoyable for a mild smoke. I'm getting some sweet/caramel nuances from it. The burn is razor sharp and the draw is tight; not in a bad way either. I rate it a 9 of 10. Go get yourself some and try them out; they're great.
Decent smoke if you want something very mild with some subtle complexity. Too mild and plain for my taste though. I smoke once a week or so and like something with a bit more depth in flavor.
I bought these after reading all the great reviews on them. Honestly I think they really are just an average at best cigar comparable to inexpensive brands. I will not be ordering them again. I guess everyone has different tastes and to me they are just average and nothing special.
Believe the hype. Beautiful construction, nice draw, great flavor, 2 inch ash. Only other mild that I can think can compete is a Gurkha Beauty. Absolutely love these.
I am a newbie to cigars, however I have quickly come to understand quality in construction. These cigars are excellent draws, well made, and very smooth. That being said, I have also come to appreciate complexities in taste and finish. As promised, these Connecticuts are extremely mild, perhaps even bordering on boring. Again, they are marketed as very mild, I am not complaining. However I now know I prefer a more medium stick. Excellent starter cigar however.
Smooth, creamy, flavorful, and an excellent value. This blend is absolutely fantastic.
I'm sitting on my back porch watching the Texas sunset and enjoying, quite possibly the best cigar I've ever had. Rocky Patel Connecticut in the cool of the evening, it just doesn't get any better than this. Thank you CI for turning me on to these with your mega sampler deal. I will be a repeat customer.
I started smoking cigars again a month ago after a long break. I got a Rocky Patel Connecticut in a sampler. By far the best I have had. WOW! Smooth and creamy all the way through.
I really enjoy this very mild cigar. It has very mild smooth taste with a very slight earthy hint. The only negative thing I can say is sometimes the ash grows to a inch and falls off. The fill of this cigar seems a bit too soft, which may account for the soft ash. Even so, I am very likely to buy another box.
GREAT SMOKES!!!
My first encounter with a Rocky Patel and it didn't disappoint me at all. There was so much smoke, too. Full, rich, heavy smoke that lingered above my head the entire evening - yup! It took me over 90 minutes to smoke it and I never really wanted to set it down. And the ash. OMG! You don't drop the ash off this stick. Rather, you give it a bang to break it off. Wow! I can't wait to try more of Senor Patel's magic in the near future. I'd buy stock if it was available. A great mild smoke for a newby like myself. Nothing pretentious here. Just fine tobacco flavor, tons of smoke, and an easy draw that never tires you out.
Nice mellow flavor. I like the RP Connecticut!
Being somewhat new to cigars, I have been sampling many sticks and found I prefer a mild one. Rocky Patel's Connecticut and 1999 Connecticut are smooth, aromatic and priced right, thanks to CI's specials. I have many cigars in my two humidors, aging nicely. However, I can't keep those Rocky Patel's in there long enough to age! They are THAT good.
It is like smoking a stick of butter!!! Smooth, creamy, nice smoke, pleasant flavor. If you are new to cigars or just like the mild side, then I highly recommend this excellent cigar.
Don't get me wrong I was pointed in the direction of these cigars because of all the good things I've heard about them. I do like them I bought a box of toros and the flavor is good but I do not like the peppery finish it has it almost makes me want to brush my tongue after a big draw I'll give it a B overall grade
In my opinion, the Rocky Patel Connecticut series of cigars are some of the most enjoyable mild cigars I have ever smoked. I would defiantly recommend them to anyone looking for a mild cigar with just enough body for a smooth mellow taste and good burn consistency. The Rocky Patel Connecticut is an ideal type of cigar for a day on the golf course or fishing on the lake, because it is mellow enough for the smoker to be able to enjoy more than one in a day without it being too much. Overall, I would have to rate this cigar at a solid 7.5. This is defiantly a cigar that will continue to be stocked in my humidor. Hope this provides help to anyone interested in this cigar!
I ordered these in a sampler on a fluke and have probably gotten 4-5 samplers since. For the price, you can't beat it. These burn consistently, have great draw, are well constructed, and are overall a good smoke. But, don't try one until it's sat in your humidor a few weeks; my experience has been these are not ready to smoke "out of the box." These are a staple for my humidor.
Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Very little resistance on the draw. Heavy smoke output but thin and slightly dry on the palate. Nice aroma. Mild strength with mild to medium flavors. Flavors of light caramel, cashew nuts and vanilla with a faint, sweet cedar on the medium length finish. Tobacco is slightly sweet and salty on the lips. Despite being mild, the flavor profile is very nice and blends well in this cigar.
Very nice cigar I'm more of a darker cigar person but this was pretty good bang for buck
Perfect burn... Relaxing, and delicious... Thank you CI...
Overall, most of cigars were harsh, and did not burn well. The few that were "good", were excellent. Although a great deal, won't buy again.
It's easy to forget how good something is after trying several samplers and getting used to a draw like a lemon seed stuck in a straw and keeping a burn needs torching and turning. After treating my palette like a men's room floor, my RP Connecticut Sampler showed up at th
