Rocky Patel Vintage '90 Robusto

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 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."

Old time tested favorite
I still remember my first Rocky vintage 1990, full body with a velvety texture on the palate. And now after 20 years there still are my reliable every day smoke with that vintage character

I enjoy all Rocky Patel selections. Although it doesn’t compare to the 20th Anniversary, it’s still a fine smoke.

In my opinion these cigars have very poor taste. Construction great, burn great, just no flavor. Would not recommend to my friends.

Doesn't burn
After staying away from Rocky Patel products for several years because of consistent construction issue, I succcumed to a CI special for RP Vintage 90 robustos. They indicate that my previous negative experiences were not an anomoly. I am at a loss to reconcile this with the apparent success of the RP brand. Do the RP bunchers realize that the ligero leaves should be placed in the center of the cigar?

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!

Nice
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.

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.

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.

Very good smoke! Burned a little uneven, but I've only had one so far. Very thick, chewy smoke!

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.
