Rocky Patel Vintage 1990

Rocky Patel Vintage, A masterpiece.

In the "cigar community" (is it me or is there a "community" for everything these days?), Rocky Patel's Vintage Series of cigars have been blazing hot. For good reason. This Vintage '90 blend is nothing short of masterful: complex and smooth, with layer after layer of deep box-pressed flavor. Offered in 2 styles, Vintage 1990 and Vintage 1992. With each, the wrapper tobaccos are the key ingredient. In fact these wrappers are incredible. Let me explain:

Vintage 1990 is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero draped in a tantalizing natural Broadleaf wrapper from Honduras. It's medium-bodied and box-pressed with a really enjoyable, complex smooth-rich flavor.

To accompany its spot within the world's Top 50 Cigars, Vintage 1990 received a '93' and '92' rating! "A pressed, attractive cigar with great oils and nice color. It's nutty, earthy and sweet, with a medium to full body. A finger burner."

End of day delight
Without a doubt one of my all time RP favorites. Medium to full that I enjoy even after b'fast! The boxed pressed churchill is a bit on the slim side and that is the only negative I can think of! Cheers!

Rocky Patel 1990 Toro - Terrific
RP Vintage 1990 Toro is a excellent stick for the price. It will appeal to a broad range of tastes...not too strong ... nor is it too mild. Great along with a fine single malt and few good friends.

Amazing Surprise
Normally I do medium to full... thought I would try these! Amazing burn so even and slow, flavor smooth and awesome. I will be needing a bigger humidor so I can store a box of these puppies! give'em a try you will not regret! I could do a couple of these a day

A delightful Rocky
This was the first Patel I ever smoked and it’s still my favorite of theirs. They are well-made, burn easily with a nice medium draw and taste fantastic. The wrapper always titlates me with the way it burns while I draw. I can’t explain it, you just have to experience it for yourself. Buy a fiver and you’ll end up wanting more!

Perfect cigar
Got one of these from a friend. Flavors were so good I had trouble waiting 30 seconds between draws. Absolutely perfect taste and construction. Will keep an eye out for these going on sale.

Stronger than expected!
This cigar was stronger, more towards the "full" end of the spectrum than "medium".

My go to cigar
If you haven't tried the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 you're cheating yourself! A smooth and consistent smoke from start to finish. I have given them to a dozen people and not a bad word from the bunch! Give me a Rocky 1990, a glass of good Tawny Port and hang out the "Do not disturb" sign!

First time smoking a RP. They lived up to their hype. The vintage 1990 was a great smoke. May add this to my regular rotation!

A Rocky Patel rarely disappoints!
Overall, a delightful, tasty, medium bodied smoke. I bought a 5 pack on sale, and wasn't disappointed. Excellent flavor, great burn (on most). I had one where the cigar unraveled at the foot, which made the draw poor, but the draw and burn on the other four were excellent (you're going to get a bad wrapper every once and a while, so I'm not holding that against Rocky Patel or Cigars International). I will buy again in the future.

Haven't had a poor Rocky smoke yet. This one doesn't disappoint and is a great evening cigar.

Great Cigar (But)
This was a great cigar. Good flavor and a good burn. On that, It earns 5 stars. The but comes in only because I like a bigger ring size.

Killer Cigar!!!!
Killer cigar! Burns absolutely perfect (I hate having to work when enjoying a cigar.) Aesthetically stunning - beautiful dark oily wrapper and contrasting red label. Plenty of flavor but no bitterness. Second half taste's more medium-full. I became an RP fan after my first Vintage 1990. Did I mention, CI rocks!

Killer Cigar!!!!
Killer Cigar! Has become one of my favorites. I typically prefer medium/full bodied cigars, and this is medium. However, lots of smoke, great flavor and very satisfying. Burn was perfect. Wanna give a shout out to CI - they always do right by their customers. I don't shop anywhere else.

Just received my sampler today and I decided to try one of these first as I've never smoked a Patel before. Overall a good smoke, I didn't have any problems with it burning uneven. I will surely buy.

No more of these for me
Taste was ok but 70% of them unraveled about half way through. I've had others that were better when purchased as samplers, but when I purchased a full box I was disappointed. I'll scratch these off my list.

Rocky Patel got it right
One of the best smokes I've had in the short time ive been smoking cigars. It was a nice even slow burned and ashed very well. It was a smooth and the flavor was almost perfect. Everyone needs to try one.

Wouldn't Recommend
Got one of these in a sampler and I was not as impressed as I expected to be coming from Patel. The flavor is not that great. It does burn unevenly, but about a third of the way through the other end caught up so it wasn't as bad as some others reported. The one positive note I can make is that the draw is very smooth and produces a good amount of thick smoke. Overall, not one that I would buy again as there are plenty of better tasting cigars for less money.

Great cigar that burns evenly with great taste

Too much effort for little reward.
Smoked one, burned incredibly uneven and had to relight it in excess of five times. Unbelievable. Should have paid attention to some of the previous reviews saying similar things. I smoke cigars to enjoy and relax; this cigar was too much effort for little reward. Where's the quality control RP. Won't buy again.

Great taste, Uneven Burn
This cigar is one of my favorites , particularly from the standpoint of taste. Great taste. Great smoke. Very good draw. The only knock is on just about every Vintage 90 I have smoked , the burn has been consistently uneven and I have had to touch it up too much. Great taste, bad burn. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.

Meh no thanks
Nice flavor but of the five I have smoked none burned well and they all required constant touch ups.I'd rather smoke something and relax instead of baby sitting.

Love Me Some RP '90's
Nice, casual smoke. Rocky did well on this box-pressed gem. Really hits the sweet spot between medium & full-bodied. Burns evenly and smokes well down to the wrapper. Keep a few these in your humidor to give to your buddies. Even an experienced palate will appreciate. Semper Fi!

Not a Fan
WOnt buy these again, I had these right out of the box and it wasn't that great. I let them sit in my humidor for about 6 months and still no change. In fact I threw these away, not a fan you may have better luck.

Full bodied
Shape very nice to hold in the hand and the wrapper is very tasty. Burn was solid and draw was easy. I loved it from first to last puff, but I felt like i was back in the 7th grade sneaking my first cigarette behind the garage. This cigar put me into a spin. Don't know if it was because I hadn't eaten or if I was just susceptible that day but I had to dose myself with some sugar to stay upright. This is a great stick though, and I'll get back to one again soon.

Perfect everyday sticks!!!
The RP Vintage '90s are the perfect price for your everyday smoke, but also good enough to share with friends. IMO, its more of a mild to medium smoke because it starts off with a bit of a bite but finishes smoothly. This vintage is part of my go-to cigars whenever I'm heading to a friends house or if we go to a cigar bar and just lounge. Rocky Patel makes some of the best cigars I've ever had.

Vintage Value
These are Really Really good. I didn't know what to expect. I am still learning how to savior the taste and determine the quality of a good cigar. I was actually introduced to a Rocky P mild Connecticut as one of my first smokes…… hence. I will always keep a Rocky P in my humidor.

save your money. buy a different stick.
Let me be very clear, by no means is this a medium. This is a bold by far. Other people have called it earthy, it's more than that, it taste like you are smoking mud. Did not light evenly which granted may have been my fault, but after 2 touch ups, it put itself out within 30 seconds. After a relight, and about 3 puffs later it put itself out again. In no way was this pleasurable and more of a hassle than anything else. I got it in a package deal, which if you remove this cigar all together from the deal, it's still well worth it (blue chip 17), out of the 4 types of cigars that it came with, this is the 3rd one I tried and very dissatisfied with it. I have the gurkha next, which I've heard great things, and the other 2 were excellent, this one was bad.

Customer Testimonials
I am a huge Rocky Patel fan. This is one of the best cigars I have ever had. I'm smoking my first one right now as I write this review and the flavor is unbelievable. The only issue is the draw is a little tighter than I would prefer, but this is one amazing stick.
I just don't get the love for this cigar. I bought a box from a competitor site about a year ago and have smoked all but two of them over that time. All of them had terrible draw issues and some were like sucking a golf ball through a waterhose. Flavor is one note of soft, light leather with a touch of Malboro light floor swept tobacco and MAYBE a hint of molasses and caramel (I hate sweet cigars). I could go on and on, but long story short, I can't wait until these are gone.
Great cigar, especially after a long day at work. Was nice just kicking back and enjoying this wonderful cigar from Rocky Patel; will be definitely be buying a box of these.
I love this cigar. I received a 5-pack in a deal a couple months ago and loved them. I ended up getting another 5-pack to age in my humidor. It's a very nice stick if you can get them in a deal. I recommend giving them a try.
