"You can't go wrong with these."

Review Notes: Classy, smokeable, tasty. Once properly aged for at least 6 months these will not disappoint you. Take advantage of seconds or auction pricing to score these. (I paid 3.75/stick about a year ago)

"Poor construction held flavors back."

Review Notes: My first sub par experience with these. Wrapper was cracked in two spots near the bands. It had a nice oily sheen to it but appeared roughly rolled. Burn was too slow and psychotically uneven. Draw was not tight but produced little smoke. The flavors, when I could get at them, were fantastic. Some sweet wood, slight spice, and something prune or black cherry like. Too bad the poor construction prevented me from enjoying them fully. Hard to believe RP quality control missed this one...it should have been tossed into the seconds bin. This stick had been in my box for at least 6 months and had developed a bit of plume. I still highly reccomend the Vintage lines. The 92 has a tad more body and is spicier to me. The 90 is a bit mellower and sweeter. Definitely consider the seconds in these lines...you'll run into some draw and cosmetic issues but for $3 it's worth the chance. I paid about $4.75 at auction for this "first".

Review Notes: I've smoked a bunch of these now and I love 'em. Handsome and smokable with a smooth, medium flavor profile. I get some earth, some spice and some prune from these. Aging seemed to help the flavors continue throughout the entire experience. Especially nice with a tawny port. The big problem with these is the cost. Since I am the prince of frugality (interpreted in some circles as "cheap") the less you pay the more you'll enjoy these. At 4.50 a near 10 in value. I have seen them for $7-8 a stick.

"Rich and Delicious to start"

Review Notes: Attractive, oily, dark chestnut brown wrapper. Wonderful prelight aroma. First third a smooth, rich, and delicious blend of earth, prune, some leather, and something I can't describe. Second 1/3 went along at about the same clip but flavors were not as prominent. Last third flavors kicked up a bit but remained a bit one demensional and became a bit hot (I did smoke this to about an inch and a half) Draw was slightly tight but fine. This slow burning stick lasted me about 2 hours. Aftertaste was fantastic. I paid about 4.50 on c-bid. At that price... a great value. Anything more than that and value diminishes sharply. Maybe some aging will help the flavor characteristics become more prominent. A nice solid smoke here but nothing mindblowing.
