    Yesterday was my worst cigar smoking day ever. I fired up three dog rockets, one of them a $15 Cohiba Nicaragua (what a turd that thing was...the second time in a month I had a terrible Cohiba product). Today was the complete opposite. I burned three sticks, all of them fantastic. Started...

    I'm smoking at this moment a Rocky Patel Sun Grown Fuerte, my first such stick. The preflight draw had nice citrus notes, almost like orange rind. Now that I've fired it up, I'm not sure what I'm tasting. What should I be looking for, palate-wise, with a sun-grown? What makes them unique...

    I have recently thrown a lot of Rockey Patels in the ashcan because of horrible bitterness. This has happened with sticks from Connecticuts to Olde World Reserve.i thought this might be because they make too many cigars and are letting inproperly cured tobacco into the pipeline to meet orders...

    Tonight I smoked a Rocky Patel Mulligans cigar. This particular vitola is called the "Whiff" and is a 7 x 50 stick with a habano wrapper. This stick was gifted to me by a local BOTL about a year ago. He said it had been resting in his humidor for about a year up to that point. All in all...

    Sorry for not having a picture but I've had this thing for a few weeks now and it is way cool! Holds almost a full can of butane and will light anything! Only thing is I have to be careful not to burn my fingers or eyebrows due to the length of the flame. If your in the market check this bad...

    I really didn't find this stick very interesting, and even on the harsh side. I was expecting great things from it. It had a very typical smoky l... Read the full review here: Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Toro Cigar Review - Bland?

    The first two thirds were quite boring, some leather, tobacco, wood, but not really complex or interesting. Last third kicked in some spice and was... Read the full review here: Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Perfecto Cigar Review - Can't agree with the reviews
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    So, what are the major differences between the two besides 2 years? Are they completely different or was the crop from one year better than the other? I am thinking about picking up a bundle of seconds for budget reasons, but I haven't seen a side by side comparison of the two. I figure you...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    Just had the mentioned stick. Reading the reviews of 1992, I expected it to be a similarly good cigar, but my experience with it was kinda uninspiring. The first two thirds were quite boring, some leather, tobacco, wood, but not really complex or interesting. Last third kicked in some spice and...

    I know this is late notice, but the event is from 6:30 - 9:00 pm tomorrow night (Oct. 12th). $15 gets you a cigar, an IPA from the local brew pub, and I think a chance for door prizes. It should be a good evening. I will be there with a buddy. Let me know if you are and we can herf. Scroll...

    I was going to pick up a box of Villiger Export Maduros to keep a few short smokes on hand for the cold months, but I saw these: Rocky Patel Factory Selects Sungrown Juniors Cigars - Natural Box of 40 Has anyone tried them? Any feedback? The Juniors look pretty tempting at that price point...

    This is one of the finest cameroon wrapped cigars I've ever had. The new Rocky Patel 2003 Vintage Cameroon.. I know it sounds nuts but trust me and pick one up. Wow... I'm buying a box of these. I had the Robusto 5 1/2 x 50 although I could've sworn it was longer than that but it...
