Rocky Patel Vintage 2nds

Thanks to minor cosmetic blemishes, Rock Patel’s Vintage 2nds cigars are a steal!

It’s amazing, really, to watch the success of Rocky Patel’s new blends over the past two years. You’ve got to admire him. Initially hailed for his innovative, full-throttle Indian Tabac cigars in the late 90’s, yet just a few years later Rocky was cast aside as an outsider by most of the clubby cigar makers, the usual suspects claiming to be superior because of their “3 bazillion years in the business,” and “100 generations of family experience” in tobacco. But Rocky just kept plugging away, the hardest working man in the business – a guy who is on the road constantly, visiting even the tiniest of retail shops and working countless days in the factories of Danli, Honduras. In fact, I’ve been with him numerous times to Honduras; it is a sight to watch him relentlessly push for perfection, driving everyone in the factory nuts, single-mindedly devoted to crafting a great product. So it’s good to see things come full circle for him, garnering a slew of 90+ ratings and high praise from all who sample his blends.

Particularly good are his RP Vintage cigars. And particularly special is this deal. You see, his rate of rejection is much higher than average, thus a small mountain of “Seconds” has been accumulating in the factory. These Seconds are labeled as such because they have been rejected strictly for cosmetic reasons. The wrappers are a little splotchy here or have a slight discoloration there. The blend is the same, box-pressed and aged to perfection​. You could burn them blindfolded and detect no difference. The beauty is that the price is far, far less. Just keep in mind: this is not a regular production cigar. My supply is dictated strictly by what the factory happens to have available to ship me. That’s why I recommend you act soon if you’re interested.

Note: As mentioned above, supply is dictated strictly on what the factory happens to have available.

Awesome buy!
Best deal going. I like 1990 better than 1992’s but that’s just a flavor choice. The 1990’s are the best cigar fir the price in my opinion. I don’t smoke around others generally so them not having a bands doesn’t bother me. Branding conscious people might not like that. I’ve compared to non-seconds and they are identical. Slight color variation to one another but if sorted you’d believe they weren’t.

Bought them for someone else.
I ended up buying the Connecticut rapper. This person tends to like a lighter cigar. I suggested to stop buying the two dollar cigars that are actually worth two dollars and give these a try. If they were not seconds they would retail for about 10 bucks a stick. So in reality it’s a great buy. Smoke output was good, flavor was good overall if you like a light cigar. I don’t think you can go wrong.

Its good as a everyday
Its good as a everyday cigar but did have some some burn issues. But as a second I'm not expecting a 20 dollar stick. Its a good everyday smoke and a pretty quick smoke if dont have time. As far as flavor I'm not the best at describing that but if you know RP its pretty classic RP. 100% would buy again

Great price for my favorite cigars. They might have blemishes on the rapper or some other minor defect but they are the same Rocky Patels that I love. Same great burns, same great flavors. Would not hesitate to order again as soon as I finish these.

These so-called seconds are really good, and an exceptional value. Construction is up to the standards of the original and the flavor profile is just as good. I would buy these again.

Another Winner from Rocky
I can't say enough about these cigars. These are seconds of the excellent 1992 Vintage, which is my favorite of the RP Vintage line. If you don't mind some minor wrapper imperfections these cigars smoke essentially the same as the originals. You're getting a super premium cigar at an everyday price, when they are available!

Tastes just as good as
Tastes just as good as any of the Rocky Patels I've had. Only reason I have found to make these seconds is the wrapper is not always the nicest looking leaf.

Great taste and burns well. Its just like the ones out of a box. I really do not see any blemishes.

Truly impressive.....
I initially worried that they would not be authentic however, the creaminess of the RP1999 is unmistakable. I'll be restocking my humidor in the near future.

2nd's over fumas, but essentially same
I think these are a step up from the fumas, smoking wise. Fumas tend to burn uneven, but those are my daily smokes. These come out for an event and of course a banded for special events. Construction quality is the same as banded. CI is always great with shipping. I usually have my order in a few days.

A keeper cigar!
RP Vintage 2nd Maduro is a great cigar for me; very good consistent quality, even burn, a moist, leathery wrapper, great draw with plenty of flavorful smoke-the best part and they don't get hot even down to the nub. The price is right and I love having them on hand. Thanks Cigar International!

What it says on the tin
Some were really good but others had draw challenges. Taste was consistent across the board which made the draw challenges more frustrating than they should have been. Exactly what I would expect from a second. Good smoke most of the time. Great smoke once in a while and some I couldn’t finish.

2nds
You can't go wrong with Rocky Patel even if they're seconds. They're perfect for giving to your friends who you want to show a good quality smoke but you're pretty sure they're not going to finish it anyway. That way you're not out of pocket a bunch. I'd say 95% of them smoke perfect and you wonder why their seconds in the first place but every now and then they'll be some wrapper issues but nothing that makes it unenjoyable. I'm always looking out for a good set of seconds and Rocky Patel doesn't disappoint.

Great Flavor Very Poor Construction
If these perfectos burned evenly and didn't canoe every time, I'd give them a five. Flavor is great, construction is certainly a 2nd. I'm talking a few puffs and the burn is 1/2 way down the cigar on one side. A nice 40 minute smoke turns into 15 minutes.

Surprising Perfecto Maduro
I was a little disappointed with their size when they arrived but midway through the first cigar that all faded. Stout little cigar that lasts and lasts. Great roll and great flavor. I am not sure why they are considered 2nds as I haven't found any blemishes yet.

Too short and a tough draw
Just a wee bit too short for my total stogie enjoyment. They were a bit hard to draw on after lighting the small end. IF you clip a bit off the torpedo, you end up with a shorter smoke. The flavor was okay.
5 out of 5
Fantastic smoke!
No humidor is complete without a small, flavorful cigar for those times when you don’t have 2 hrs for a big stick. This one is awesome. Very flavorful with notes of cinnamon up front, leather and mahogany next and allspice to round out the finish. Love these!
5 out of 5
My new go-to cigar
The RP Perfecto Maduro 1990 2nds is a great little cigar. I've bought a lot of RP over the years, a lot of seconds, including three mazos of these. Perfecto is a tougher one to roll - most RP seconds it's hard to spot a flaw. On these it's easier. But the flavor and burn are great. Stored 74% humidity they give a nice, even, slow burn. Great flavor, slightly spicy at the end.

Is the warehouse hiring from a "Special School"??
A very good cigar. BUT, why have I received a 10 pack of Acid Cigars (dog turds), when I have clearly ordered the Rocky Patel's???? TWICE, on 2 consecutive orders. is the warehouse hiring from a "Special School"?? CI might get a tax break.

Big flavor in little package
Great RP smoke in a great size. This is perfect for those times when you want a 30 minute or so smoke, not an hour long smoke. The flavor is there and who cares if it's not quite as pretty as others? I'll be buying this again.

Surprisingly well made
These are well made smokes. Their status as “seconds” only refers to esthetics but they smoke well—draw is just right. I don’t buy cigars to look at anyway. A great value.

You get a more than what you pay for, with a few exceptions.
Overall, really good cigars, with the exception of occasionally perceptible inconsistency in construction - these are seconds after all - but I have had only a few sticks (none yet in this pack of Patel 1992's) that were problematic to the point of diminishing returns. These are maybe my 5th or 6th order of seconds, and I am very happy with the value, they weren't too dried out (just a bit) and really are good smokes. Will definitely buy again, hopefully rejects from the same QC inspector.

Personal Favorite
Been smoking cigars for the past 11 yrs and have enjoyed RP 90's since the beginning. I have yet to experience a cigar that I enjoy as much as this one. That is, until I discovered 90 2nd's a year later.
5 out of 5
One of my favs
Restocking my humidor. I don't need them to be banded, so I settle with the 2nds.
5 out of 5
Taste and Value make it a 5!
First read the name, then the price. Now if you dont mind a few that may need a touch up with the lighter, then you have a great deal in your hands. All the flavor and just a touch off the best construction for half the price, makes it a great second cigar to keep your box full.

A Great Rocky Classic
I started smoking RP 92s about 10-11 years ago as my middle shelf go-to. I was surprised when I started smoking the 2nds about 8 years ago to find that they were always consistent and retained the great RP quality, still to this day!.... I may be a bit traditional or even prejudice to RP, but as a 2nd, it's quality is far superior to many first-run cigars in similar price range! I have numerous Rocky favorites but when it comes to a smoke on the golf course our sitting in the hot tub, the 92 2nd is a great bargain and a great cigar.

these are some of the best cigars I've ever smoked. I got the perfect 1990 Sumatra wrapper and to say they are delicious and perfectly constructed is an under statement. did I get lucky and hit the jackpot? don't know. but I'll be ordering several more boxes to find out!

Handle With Care
I would give 5 stars but there was an issue with the wrapper. It started to unravel when I cut it. It is thin and delicate. A little dab of saliva did the trick. It also burned uneven and I had to correct it a few times. The cigar is very good otherwise. Nice taste of wood and spice with a touch of espresso. Medium to full body yet it is silky smooth. I smoked others before and this was my first time I had any problems.

These sticks are great! Same great flavor, Construction, burn time at a reduced price for more savings so you can buy more of these great sticks. Give him a try I don't think you'll be disappointed.

In my batch, all of
In my batch, all of the caps came off. Not to worry, since a little ring of saliva glues those back in place before taking a V-cut. Strong flavors of cocoa, coffee and fermented tobacco with this one. Retrohale gives some softer sweet and woody notes. Overall it's a beautiful stick, though I may try to age a few of these because I like a mellower smoke, and I'm curious to find out what flavors develop.

Will be buying more, nice and dark with a easy draw. Don't know how the 12 year age thing fits into it all, I am a Punch cigar lover, but a 1876 budget guy, my brother told me he had purchased a sampler pack with some of these in it. So I bought 20, I guess it is true, you get what you pay for... Excellent with some Bourbon, whiskey or Tequila ( flavored ).

Don't Try it, You won't like it
In a word - Putrid. This is not a Rocky Patel. Slightly better than a Cargo, which are really disgusting, and 3 times the price? I wouldn't pay a dollar for one again. I wouldn't smoke these for free. No flavor, harsh and tasteless. It was like smoking dirt. On the plus side, the draw was actually pretty good.

Rocky Patel 12 yr 2NDs
These are great little cigars. Not quite sure why they’re 2NDs, at least not yet as I’ve only had 3 so far. I have to say RP 2NDs are better than most. I’ve had seconds that were obvious as to why. I’ll buy these again

Excellent Buy
These Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 seconds , are a great buy. They taste as smooth and flavorable as the regular Vintage 1992. Any minor imperfections they may have aren't even really noticeable and personally I don't need a band on my cigars to make them taste better. This is a wonderful purchase!

I smoked 2 of these straight off, laid the rest down in my humidor. The two I smoked were really hard to draw, seemed a bit dry, smoked one out of my humidor after a week and it was so much better, taste so much better and smoked perfect. Think I will have to buy and lay them down longer to get the best from them, will buy more if available

Have smoked 2 of these cigars, both were packed too tight and a difficult draw, they both seemed to draw okay after half the cigar was smoked! Great flavors that's the reason I gave them 3 stars, would not buy again very dissapointed even though they are seconds

Great value smoke that will not dissapoint!
Well, I've had several bad experiences with 2nds in the past so I was hesitant to buy these. Read some reviews and thought maybe I'd try these. I know RP makes good sticks. I must say I've only had one so I can't vouch for the consistency. But this smoke is tops. CI mentioned that you can smoke these blindfolded and not know the difference and I would say that is my feeling as well. Even burn, perfect draw, and tasty. I won't go into the hints of this or the notes of that cause I think that is all fluff anyway, but I would buy these again without a thought. A little on the strong side but that was expected and what I like. Like I said I've only had one so I might be back for a consistency update, but so far this is a deal I hesitate to let others know as these are a steal at this price. Cheers!

50/50 shot
In the bundle of 20, which I just finished smoking through, about 1/2 smoked well after the first inch. The other half were throwaways--not worth the frustration of trying to smoke a "non-functional" cigar that burned poorly and harshly for the modest price reduction
3 out of 5
Full body, okay taste
I like most of the RPs that I've had, but this one is a bit too strong. Flavor was also pretty one dimensional. Not a bad smoke, just not my style.

Happy with my Rocky Patel Vintage 2nds Churchill Maduro 1990 purchase
I tried one as soon as I opened my package. Smooth but not a lot of flavor, so I took the rest out of the wrappers and after about a week or so in the humidor produced a good flavor and ever so smooth - A good cigar and a very good value! Will order more in the near future....

Rocky Patel Vintage 2nds - A great deal without compromising on quality.
I actually made a slight mistake when I placed my order, I thought that I had ordered the RP Vintage 2nds Robusto Sumatra 1992, instead I received the RP Vintage 2nds Robusto Maduro 1990, I was slightly disappointed until I lit one up, these Vintage 2nds are great, If it weren't for the lack of a band, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference, I didn't really see any imperfections that would stop me from purchasing them. The RP Vintage 1990 & the Vintage 1992 are two of my favorite cigars, I've smoked a fair amount of them, and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that the Vintage 1990/1992 2nds are a great buy! The 2nds are constructed very well, what we've come to expect from Rocky Patel, they smoke very well, great draw, burn evenly, nice amount of smoke...if you are still on the fence about purchasing the Vintage 2nds, you'll get great cigars at great prices.

Great smokes
I have ordered these 3 times already. To me, this is similar to Padron 1964 (a little milder and not as good, of course, but similar). Never had a bad draw. Smokes great. For the price and considering that these are seconds, I'd say they are a bargain.

An all time favorite.
The RP Vintage 1990 is one of my all time favorite cigars. My go to as an everyday smoke. The bundle of so called seconds has everything I love about this cigar with one exception - the band. Maybe a minor blemish somewhere, but if you smoked a 2nd and a full price I'd defy you to tell the difference.
5 out of 5
Outstanding smoke at good price.
An outstanding smoke. I bought a pack of these and was amazed at how good they are. Thanks to CI for making these deal available. This compares well to Cuban cigars I buy.

My husband loves this Rocky. CI makes it very easy for a gal to surprise her man for his Birthday, Christmas, or just because I appreciate him. CI offers a No Fuss ordering and delivery system. They send me emails when there are events and sales.I have recommended CI to a few of my gal pals who want to get gifts for their special guys,but don't want to get them another golf shirt. I don't smoke , but I enjoy the smell of a good cigar. I enjoy it more when I know that my husband is enjoying his Rocky. Thanks again CI,I will be back again and again and again. Teresa I Scranton, Pa.

Just ok.
I fail to see how they had a Sumatran wrapper. The construction was/is good for seconds. Some flaws. I don't care about flaws unless they impact the smoke-ability. These were/are very "bright" weak and seemingly needing some aging or something. I wouldn't buy them again at any price.

This is pretty good
For the price, it's pretty good. Nice smoke. One of them that I've had so far was a little too oily for me, but other than that, good smokes so far!

Prefer 1990s
I prefer the 1990s over the 1992s. They are part of my permanent cigar rotation. Having 2nds just makes them that much better in the pricing department.

2nds are a Great Value!
The flavor is great and the price even better.

Very loose construction with a very uneven burn. Lotta work to get thru a cigar. Taste okay. Hey, they're seconds, right? Two stars.

I like trying new cigars. Buy I always like to have some of these on hand. Great for a daily smoke.

Rocky 2nds
I prefer 1992 better. 1990 is stronger. It has a great flavor, but a bit stronger than the 1992's. It is a nice option if I can't get the 1992's.

They were a hit at the golf tournament. Great taste without the harsh taste. Kept a good burn and would highly recommend to friends.

As a Rocky fan! Nothing better than this!
Aside from the retail 1990's. These are hands down the best. Don't know why they are 2nds, but thank you CI, I really appreciate these sticks.

Keep your lighter handy
These RP seconds have the smoothness and flavor you expect from a Rocky Patel but try to keep them lit. I wouldn't recommend unless you have a lot of patience. Disappointed.

RP vintage seconds have changed, for the worse.
I have been buying RP vintage seconds for 8 to 10 years. All of a sudden they have changed, for the worse. My last two orders have been bitter and usually dry. They are packed different also. Please bring the old ones back. Won't buy any more till they do.

Great bargain. I couldn't see why the were rejected and sold as seconds, but their lose is my gain. :-)

If I was smoking a cigar everyday it would be my RP. Enjoy

Great cigar
always buy a pack when ordering cigars. Great smoke especially if you don't care about having a fancy name or label. Me and my friend have been sinking these for years!

As smooth as it gets
The RP Vintage 1990 has long been my favorite smoke. There is no decline in the quality of the 2nds, and for the price, you can't beat the deal. I recommend anyone on the fence about making this purchase should go ahead and invest in your own happiness. You will be glad you did.

Not as great as I remember.....
I've enjoyed these 2nds for several years, but my last delivery did not meet my expectations. The bundle was very dry......have had them in the humidor for the past 3 weeks.....tried one a couple of nights ago and it did not have a good burn.....had to keep the torch going.

Worst Rocky Patel cigars ever ......
These were by far the worst RP cigars I have ever smokes. None of them burned evenly and too hard to keep lit. The flavor was so harsh you could not savor the smoke. Never will buy again.

Highly recommend this cigar. If you like Maduro, this is the cigar for you

Not outstanding, but still well worth it....
I have purchased these several times now, and although not an outstanding smoke, these are an incredible bang for your buck. Rarely a tight draw, consistent through and through. Decent flavor, but does burn quickly. In the end, you can't go wring given the price.

Why pay more?
These 2nds are exactly like the others. I have had many RP's and now after getting these I will never pay full price again. Will recommend to all my friends!!

Rocky Patel 1990 (seconds)
Tobacco was good as always. They showed up timely and were priced well. A few sticks had irregular burns and either made runs or kept going out. For the price, all good.

Physically held together until finished and no real bitter taste at the end. For the money enjoyed it very much as have some friends.

Great flavor & lush smoke
I've had the regular Rocky Patel Vintage cigars and they've always been great. These 2nds really are just as good. The flavor is great. Robust but not overwhelming. Good construction and pretty even burn. I'm really amazed at the amount smoke that comes from them. Extremely lush & plentiful. If you're someone who likes a lot of smoke, this cigar is for you.

RP Second in First Place
I was skeptical that these "seconds" would be even close to firsts of other well known brands .Well, I was wrong....these are great box pressed and well aged cigars. Smooth, flavorful, with a nice even slow burn. Great value.

Rocky Patel vintage seconds are a great buy, they are perfect with no obvious flaws, a little too mild for my taste but very flavorful ,
