Rocky Patel Vintage '03 Cameroon

A new decade of Rocky Patel Vintage cigars.

Rocky Patel's Vintage Series is his bread and butter. They're the cigars that put him on the map years ago. And even today, they continue to wow customers - new and old alike. There's a reason why these heralded handmades have scored so highly, on so many occasions - with ratings reaching as high as 93-points. Because, well, the cigars are simply exceptional. 

And now, the Rocky Patel Vintage cigar saga continues. This round features a dark and oily 8-year-aged Cameroon wrapper overtop a robust blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers that are equally well-aged. Flawlessly constructed, this medium to full-bodied handmade delivers a serious array of flavor including notes of cedar, black pepper, coffee, and a caramel-like sweetness on the finish. It's got some oomph, it definitely has plenty of flavor, and it's smooth and well-balanced too. Yet another feather in RP's now-overloaded cap.

Rocky Patel Vintage '03 Cameroon received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "This tasty cigar burns and draws evenly, showing a toasty, creamy smoke with leather, nougat and rich tobacco flavor. Balanced and elegant."

Rocky's Cameroon Rocks
Rocky Patel's Vintage 03 Cameroon is simply the best cigar I have ever had at any price. Yes, it's not cheap, but it can't be beat - great draw, even burn, no bite or nicotine burn or heat all the way to the end. All this and the taste is wonderfully interesting and bold while remaining mellow (after the first three puffs) throughout the smoke. I gave up a much more expensive Cohiba for this cigar.

Number One Choice
The '03 Cameroon was the first Rocky Patel that I tried. And, it was my favorite cigar ever. It also got me hooked on the Rocky Patel brand. I do like other cigars, but RP is my top choice when buying a cigar. I wish it was cheaper for a box, but I understand why they cost so much. Sometimes, i think RP's should cost more. If you love RP or never tried one before, i think you should try or start with the '03 Cameroon.

Possible my all time favorite.
Got a five pack and tried the first one this past weekend and this bad boy may just end up being my favorite cigar of all time. I've loved the Vintage 1992 for years but the Cameroon is so smooth and flavorful! Was smoking it with friends and I found myself getting lost in the flavor of the cigar and had to be brought back to the conversation several times. Did not want to put it out. Looking forward to another one this weekend!

smooth smoke
the rocky cameroon 03 is a smooth smoke with creamy sweet favors and a little nutty, and as usual a perfectly constructed cigar with perfect draw and burn. I wouldn't expected anything else from rocky.

Rare Medium-Full Cameroon
Rocky Patel is the Eric Clapton of tobacco blenders. Most blends that use a Cameroon wrapper are mild or medium-mild blends. Rocky wrapped a full-body core with a well-aged Cameroon wrapper to produce this medium-full cigar to put a caramel sweet finish on a hazelnut-leather earthy blend that is complex and full of flavor. This is one of my all-time favorite cigars and my favorite that is under $15 a stick.

Very nice stick! A buttery sweetness with a mild hint of spicey wood

A must try!
One of the best I have had, I am far from a snob and won't talk about all the minor details, I will put it simple, I have had my share of cigars and I love a good smooth med/full bodied cigar, This fits the build, strong enough, smooth, and delicious.

Customer Testimonials
Insanely good. I wasn't a fan of Rocky Patel so I was less then excited when someone gave me this stick, til I smoked it. Amazing flavor, great draw, great smoke. I would rate this above a Padron thousand series which is saying a lot.
This '03 robusto was a fantastic smoke. Very nice construction, minimal viens, rich and deep Cameroon color, awesome coffee and my favorite black pepper tastes. Awesome stick to go with a Texas Steak!
This cigar is under rated. Really under rated. The key on this smoke is the Toro. I have never seen such a difference in size between a brans. The Toro size makes the Cameroon wrapper shine. CI price here is outstanding with free shipping by the way. This is a Cameroon delight. First the construction like 90% of Rocky is outstanding. The cigar has three different ranges of smoke---from mild spice, to rich leather to chocolate walnut. You will kill this smoke if it's not treated well--like all Camers it must be at the proper humidity. Never smoke it outside in the cold . One of my top 7 all time. Cheers.
Just fired up my first stick. Overall a very good smoke. I found the draw a little tight until about midway. The second third was way better than the first. I had about a month's box time on the stick. With more time I'm sure the overall smoke will improve. Don't be fooled this smoke has no where the complexity of the Vintage 1990 or 1992 but I would still give it a very high grade.
