Review Notes: I've bad experience with Rocky's Vintage line. The problems were always with the poor construction. He gets a high demand and then rushes the product, which leads to poor quality control in some of his sticks. That said, on to the review. Nice semi-box pressed appearance, as this seemed to round out a little during the two and a half years that this was in the humidor. Oily appearance with minimal veins. Pre-light aroma was a little funky, but mostly a barnyard smell. Initial flavors were chocolate, leather and some berry. It stayed this way for the first third of the cigar and was very nice and smooth. It then took on a more chocolatey taste as the leather and berry subsided. At around the halfway mark, it pretty much went to a one dimensional tobacco flavor which it finished off with. The back half was relatively mediocre, but the first half was extremely enjoyable. I'm so used to disappointments with this line, that I'm happy I got at least this much enjoyment out of it. All in all a pretty good stick.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (9) No (12)
