"Aging did wonders."

Review Notes: Wow! This is why we smoke cigars. This sexy looking, year plus aged cigar nicked on c-bid for $4-ish, was incredible. Solidly medium in body with flashes to full, this baby smoked and drew like a champ. The smooth, changing flavors were of spice, some earth, something prune or plum tasting, some mocha and coffee all within a mostly straight tobacco base. Highly recommended. I find the RP Vintage 90 and 92 both wonderful. However, I find the 92, deeper in body, more consistent, with a slightly better flavor profile. (Value rating inflated due to the $4 I paid.)

Review Notes: A gorgeously attractive, tasty, medium to mostly full bodied cigar. Burned slow, slightly uneven, but mostly OK. Draw slightly tight. Once aged properly, the strength and flavor become well balanced and mature into a very smooth and distinguished coffee, spice, and earth experience. A tad one demensional throughout the hour and 45 minute experience, but I liked the demension. As I did, you should be able to get these cheaply at auction on C-bid for about $4-5 a throw. Recomended at that price but not for the mild crowd.

Review Notes: A Sexy, smokable, tasty cigar. Smooth, Medium to fringe of full in overall body and flavors. No overpowering aftertaste. I sucked this baby down in about an hour and fifteen minutes. Very enjoyable. Flavors of earth and wood with some nice spice overtones hit my palate just right. Nothing mindblowing but very nice. Great with a tawny port. At $8 a throw value is a bit off as you can smoke something similar in flavor (padron 1000 series, camacho corojo, gran habano corojo #5 come to mind) at half the price. I nicked a 5 packer on c-bid for $4 a throw. A solid value. You can too. I shall base the review on $4.

Review Notes: These heavenly babies just came to me yesterday. Smoked one last night after dinner around the patio fire with friends. The stick Looked yummy. Smoked a bit uneven with a tight draw until about 1/2 way in. Stick was rock hard. BUT THE FLAVOR...ohhh my...Dense complex dark chocolate slightly roasted almond heavenly full flavor. This reminded me of a Cuban Montecristo #2. The best part of this was the fact that this stick cost me $3 because it was an RP 1992 vintage SECOND. (Cigar Int. is running a 15 pak bundle special for $45) Yes this was a second. OHHHHH MYYYY. I can't believe what the "Firsts" must be like. I washed this stick down with a chocolate Yahoo. What a suprisingly great combo.
