    Great review! It looks like the Cigar Surgeon & I both started smoking cigars about the same time, and apparently, we have similar tastes, too. This RP Vintage 1992 was one of my early favorites, since it allowed me to expand my palate into more flavors and even strength without blowing my head off with nicotine. I do like the 1990 Vintage a bit more, but both are still very high on my favorites list.

    Rocky’s cigars consistently have excellent draw resulting in rich creamy smoke. I love to experiment with Patel cigars and have a few of every one. The 1990, 1992, 1999, Decade and fifteenth anniversary are my favorites but I pulled out an Olde World Reserve last night and it was delish. Keep up the great work Rocky !! And please don’t ever abandon these classics !!

    And I forgot to mention the RP Drew Estate Java lines. I smoked one of these after dinner sitting at a sidewalk table in Downtown Greenville SC. I had at least a half dozen women pass and then come back to ask what I was smoking and that they loved the aroma — and they didn’t even like cigars !! My sister in law lives with us and she begs me to smoke one of these occasionally. She then sits downwind and oohs and aahs throughout the experience. Rocky, I believe you’ve discovered an aphrodesiac.

    Great review! Where did you find it at $105 per box? My usual sources have it for $130+.

    I find that Cigarplace.biz tends to have some really screaming deals. In addition if you subscribe to their newsletters, they send out coupon codes on a weekly basis.

    I was fascinated by this beauty for some time because of its almost very black maduro color and finally decided to try it. It delivers toasty notes of coffee. The 10 year old Ecuadorian sumatra wrapper is a beautiful oily wrapper that delivers full bodied spicy flavors along with the 5 year old combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers and binder. It has a gold and maroon color label. This cigar has great structure and my ash stayed true.
