Review Notes: I'm a RP fan. Vintage 90's and 92's are regulars for me, and 90 and 92 seconds are my lawn work smokes. I even smoke the European version of the RP Vintage line. So I'm a fan. I wanted this smoke to take the line up a notch. It didn't do that, but it did add another quality choice to the RP lineup. To me it's a fuller body smoke than the 90 and 92. It starts at a spicy medium and then transitions at the 1/3rd point where it seems to go flat for a minute and then it becomes more complex. Someone else said coffee, I say nutty, but the same sentiment. It was strong enough at the 1/3rd mark that I thought, "what can I drink with this". I bypassed rum, wine and diet coke and decided on a glass of ice water. I think it complimented the cigar well. Water clears the tastebuds for the transition. This smoke is no on par (for me) with the Arturo Fuente line. It's just not that kind of smoke. But, it's a solid 7.5. And it's a value buy on c-bid right now. I would recommend it as part of any medium body smokers line up. The burn was a bit inconsistent on this stick, but I only let it sit in the humidor for a couple days. That little blue band kept calling. I feel it still hadn't transitioned from shipping. It's a beautiful cigar with great construction and a double wrapper.
