Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut

Complete the Vintage cigar trilogy!

Capitalizing on his unrivaled success of the 93-rated Vintage '90 and '92 series, Rocky has created the Vintage '99 cigar, a tasty, subtle-bodied morsel coated with a silky Connecticut shade wrapper.

The '99 Connecticut uses an exquisite 7-year-old Connecticut leaf to tame his award-winning mixture of 8-year-old Dominican and Nicaraguan long-leaf ligeros. The result is a hearty, slightly spicy cigar with creamy notes of earth and toasted wood. Enjoy this mellow change of pace from Senor Patel, a choice cigar to pair with your morning cup of coffee or workday commute.

Vintage 99 top notch as always
Rocky Patel always holds in weight in gold and didn’t fail with this one!! Hands down my favorite and smoothest cigar on the market and great prices from CI!! If you enjoy Connecticut wrappers Or anything smooth and mellow do not hesitate to buy these this should be a humidor stable at all times

Smoot, mild, even burning and great taste - its a great smoke

better than average but not great
these small cigars would have been a great mild quick smoke for colder months when standing outside is not pleasant, but inconsistent construction preclude a 5 star rating. A more appropriate rating is 3.5 stars, but can't do that with the rating system, so gave it 4 stars. Most smoked fine, but many had very difficult draw, and some had rips near the band, so smoking was really difficult.

R.P. 1999 What a great year - Thanks Rocky!
The RP 1999 Connecticut is one of the best mild cigars on the market in my opinion. Smooth and pleasant and a great cigar if you just want a mild smoke with very little linger. I've had plenty of mild cigars and this is a favorite even though I like a more med cigar that has some complexity to it. If you're just starting out or just want a light smoke with a morning brew this cigar won't disappoint.

One of the best
Excellent cigar. When I go back to Rocky's cigar bar "Burn" in Naples, FL this is definitely the cigar of choice. I picked this box up for my best man and he loves them even more than I do. Great draw, smooth, and a classy smoke.

Great taste
I shared my cigars with a neighbor, and his friend. The next day they asked if I had a couple more. The friend said how he liked the flavor, the smooth taste, and the burn. My thoughts exactly, that's why I bought 40. PS I told him I was out. Haha!

Really wonderful!
I'd never tried any Rocky Patel cigar before and I'm not sure what prompted me to order them but they're an excellent smoke! Very smooth, very mellow and delicious. They are really well wrapped and burn perfectly holding a tight ash the entire time. I just ordered a few more to take to Canada on a fishing trip.

Doesn't pass muster as a good mild body smoke
This cigar doesn't measure up as a mild-medium smoke for those of us who prefer our cigars with that body and flavor. The 5-pack I got did not impress. Construction was fine, had beautiful wrappers, right size (for me), nice shape--all the good stuff one looks for in a quality cigar. But the flavor let me down. In my opinion, it's a very big hurdle for a purveyor of stronger cigars like Rocky Patel to crank out a milder-bodied smoke that'll satisfy a smoker that has sworn off Rocky Patels ever since I smoked the unsmokeable Indian Tabac of yesteryear. Won't buy these again.

Perfect !
As a novice cigar smoker , I picked up quick on these . On a recent trip to Fla I went to a local cigar shop and started talking to the owner . Explaining to him I am not a heavy smoker but do enjoy a good light/mild cigar every so often , he said these would no doubt be pleasing , and he couldn't be more correct ! I have since tried a few cigars RP has , but always go back to these . And now they are a mainstay in my humidor and when the boys get together , they know I have the best Rockys !! Cheers !

Good morning cigar
These look the part of an expensive cigar. They're impeccably-made, and smoke beautifully. Flavors are nice and creamy, but perhaps lacking in the complexity and layers of flavor that I expect for the price.

We had these for our guests because the theme was things from Connecticut and Pennsylvannia since the Patel vintage had a ct wrapper it was a hit.

Customer Testimonials
Vintage 99 is a amazing cigar. Think R&P Connecticut, but SMOOTHER if that's even possible. If you're willing to fork up the dough, go for it! This bad boy does NOT disappoint.
Always a great smoke. Mild, flavory and smooth....
My favorite cigar period. Smooth, great draw, with a little spice.
By far the best cigar I've ever had. Nice burn with great construction and creamy flavors. Almost had like a fancy coffee taste throughout the whole stick. Not too spicy at first like most cigars and nice very mild strength. If I had the money I would fill my humidor with these but I do not. Like other posters though I guess that is what makes these a special smoke.
Probably one of the best cigars Ive ever had. I'm no expert and smoke about once a week, and this one is always smooth right down to the end. Its mild but long on flavor with cedar in my opinion being predominant. Go for it. Its burn is great requiring maybe 1 touch up at most. Truthfully Ive never had a bad Rocky.
Had my first '99 Connecticut yesterday. I was looking for a smooth, mild cigar with great flavor. This one hit it right on the nose. Great flavor. Conn. shad wrapper is very flavorful. Nice mild smoke for any time during the day. A bit pricey for my wallet, but a treat when I get one. Looking for something a bit stronger, I would highly recommend the Alec Bradley American Classic. Smoke slow and enjoy.
Next to a Montecristo White Label, the RP Vintage 1999 Connecticut is my favorite cigar. It is considered a mild smoke, but it is very full of flavor with an incredible aroma. It burns perfectly even with a beautiful light grey ash. So good!
I got this in a sampler. Not a big fan of mild cigars...but....Had this with coffee on the deck this morning and it was GREAT. Nice burn, plenty of smoke, good construction. A pleasant change from the "smack in the face" from a full bodied smoke.
I've had my eye on this beautiful looking cigar for a while and today I was able to sample it. The construction was solid. Pre-light aroma was heavy on cedar. It lit very easy and drew perfect, comparable to a Perdomo. The predominant tones through the entire smoke were toasted cedar and leather. Very mellow. Well packed cigar as the ash was solid as concrete. I got a good 2 inches from the initial light before I decided to knock it off. I'll keep a couple of these around in the humidor for sure.
I got caught up in the "strong" cigar craze for awhile before deciding that it's just not for me. Smoked one of the Vintage '99 beauties at a Crawfish Boil a few days ago. Creamy and loads of great flavor. Ok, for the record I smoked two.
We were fly-fishing in Montana and each evening at the lodge we would sit out on the deck before dinner and have a drink or three with a smoke. Everyone brought their own smokes but by the third day they all wanted to trade for one of my Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut’s. I actually had to hide them so they wouldn’t steal them from me when I wasn’t looking. This cigar is a great smoke… smooth, creamy and flavorful! I’m telling you, if you try these cigars you won’t be disappointed.
This "R.P.90 Conn". is the surprise of the year for me. Recently I've strayed from the med. to full bodied cigars i usually smoke. Just looking for a milder smoke to fall back on when one is wanted. I've tried and enjoyed a couple, the Gurkha Park Ave., the R.P. Conn. Due to the fact i enjoyed the R.P. Conn., i decided to try the R.P Vintage '99 Conn. I was totally blown away. The earth and wood flavors were right on, however, i have never tasted a Conn. wrapper as creamy and flavorful as this one. One excellent smoke. A sleeper, i have not heard much, hell, anything about this cigar. I'm telling you now, go for it. You also, will be pleasantly surprised by this exquisite cigar. Take my advise, you will be glad you did. Good smokin', later.
Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut - the best I have had, my fave for a relaxing evening. Not to be smoked in a hurry, goes well with a nice pint of dark ale, and a sunset...wish I could afford them everyday, but then they wouldn't be special.
I have always enjoyed Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut and 92's perhaps my favorate smokes, but after my first 99' connecticut i am rethinking my whole world !
the Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut is by far the best cigar i have EVER smoked these darlings are a main stay in my humdor.
Best cigar Patel makes in my opinion.Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut This cigar surpasses the 92, the 90 and even the Decade as far as Im concerned.
By far the best mild cigar to date Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut by anyone in the industry. So why is C.I. holding out on us? Try one for yourself and you'll be adding your own coments on fan mail.
I have had all of Rocky Patel's line of cigars. The Vintage 1999 is BY FAR the best cigar he makes. It's probably the best conneticut on the market right now. I had been begging CI to carry these for the past year or so when I had one in a vintage sampler. This cigar will really blow you away.
