Rocky Patel Vintage 1979

’79 – a most fine Vintage indeed

Choosing a favorite Rocky is no easy task, but if you pushed me, I’d lean towards the Vintage family. One of the cigars that helped put Rocky on the map, the “Vintage” series features tobaccos aged for over a decade, and the results are nothing short of excellent. But nothing could prepare you for the masterpiece at hand today: Rocky Patel Vintage 1979. 

Yeah, you read that right: 1979. This cigar features a gorgeous, silky-smooth genuine African Cameroon wrapper leaf first cultivated 40 years ago. Don’t believe me? Taste one for yourself and you’ll be quickly convinced. The amount of delicate sweetness and subtle spice that pours out with every puff on this gem is the type of flavor you can only get from expertly aged leaf. As for the performance? Don’t worry about it. Every one of these cigars that I gobbled down (I mean… sampled) delivered a razor-sharp burn line and a smooth, buttery draw that was oh-so-appealing. I won’t lie: these boxes are going to set you back a pretty penny. But for a cigar this rare and delicious, it’s worth every red cent.

A New Favorite!
This is another great creation from RP! I've only had 1, so far, but it was excellent! I didn't have any of the problems others have indicated (leaf crumble or burn), but will be watching. It had a super white ash and a smooth draw (I used a punch). I was an even burn to my fingertips. I'm already an RP fan with Decade, Royale, and Vintage '90s in my routine. This will become another fine smoke to add to the selection.

Most of the batch was very good.
Good size, constructed well, smooth draw. Due to the length of aging there was a little inconsistency in the taste, however I found them to be a smooth and tasty smoke.

My thoughts.
Excellent burn, having smoked one last evening. Robusto is my favorite size, however most of Patel's cigars in that size are a 50 ring size, wish they were at least 52 or 54. Flavor is Rocky Patel's signature, and holds here. Looks like that series, 1979 is being discontinued.

Mmmmmellow!
It's a great smoke from start to finish. Mellower than the RP Vintage 1990, it has a good draw, the burn is even. Ever so slightly sweet, with a rich flavor without a bite. Great smoke on the deck in the evening with the beverage.

The drawer and construction are
The drawer and construction are great! Love the robusto size as well. The flavor was very straightforward.... I was hoping for a bit more complexity and layers, but, that is why you buy more than 1 cigar, need to smoke a few of them to check consistency. A good cigar!

Delicious
This cigar is unequivocally the best cigar I have ever smoked. A nice manure smell and flavor on the cold draw which, incidentally is a nice pack and perfect draw. The burn is razor sharp with plenty of smoke and a nice mellow to medium flavor profile. This has become my favorite go to stogie.

Awesome Rocky!
It’s definitely a must have. Great draw and perfect smooth stick. Goes great with any drink and any environment. It really has a great taste and doesn’t leave your mouth dry. I definitely recommend and will always order this from CI. I also recommend RP Vintage 1990. The longer you leave in a humidor the better the construction burns. Great smoke with every draw.

My first R.P. experience
Beautiful cigar. rolled too tight. I stuck my draw tool in and fixed it. A bit stronger than I am used to, so I had to get a bit stronger drink. Excellent flavor and aroma. Razor sharp, perfect burn. This was my freebie 5-pack with a box of Churchills of the same line.

I love Robusto cigars. Just the right size. These 1979 are rich, smooth and delicious. From start to finish, this cigar burns evenly, slowly and never looses the flavor of the first puff.

RP nailed it
I have always been a big fan of Rocky Patel Decade and also fond of Rocky Patel Royal Vintage.The Vintage 1979 is a beautiful medium bodied smoke, full of flavors with very little pepper on the finish. A very earthy flavor with hints of leather and manure. This is already become my favorite go to stogie.

RP is my favorite stogie. My gf got me these for my 40th bday. It was well rounded and very smooth. Out of the 3 that I had, only one burned unevenly.

Trying something new
For price, you can't go wrong. Not a spectacular smoke, some are too hard to draw. So far two in 5 were too hard to draw and I have thrown them away. Those you can smoke, the flavor is good. I wish all were that way.

Inconsistency. Some cigars were rolled a little tight, producing a somewhat tight draw. A good smoke though, and I will buy again.

Fabulous Cigar
For me, I would prefer a 5" only because I usually don't have adequate time to appreciate anything else. A great smooth cigar that burns evenly, medium body and good to the very end.

Cameroon 1979 Rocky Patel
Terrific cigar. Given the great price and somewhat lukewarm reviews I thought it worth taking a chance. Boy, glad I did! From the beginning excellent burn to smoke ratio. Earthy gave way to lovely moderate intensity flavors and aromas. This is a very good cigar and the age mellowed but didn’t dilute those flavors. High marks!!

Must have for Rocky fans
What a phenomenal cigar! I’ve smoked RP for over 15 years…and the Vintage series have long been a go-to favorite. But this 1979…all I can say is WOW. Super nice construction, exceptional rich flavor, even burn. I’m usually fairly generous with my cigars but I doubt I’ll be sharing many of these =:^)

Rocky Patel 1979 Robusto
This was a Great cigar and the filler and wrapper burns slow and the blend is very satisfying down to the end.
4 out of 5
Flavorful slow burning stick.
Ordered 5 pack and I loved it so I ordered a box of 15 and it just arrived. This is a very flavorful stick that must be enjoyed slowly and to appreciate the aroma I like to smoke it indoors. The wrapper on some cigars cracks a bit close to the 2/3 way as it’s very delicate Cameroon wrapper but it’s a complex lovely cigar. I prefer to use punch hole instead of regular cut. It takes a little an hour and goes very well with bourbon. Best smoked after about 10 days Knapp in the humidors. A bit pricey but I Highly recommend it.
