Review Notes: I have been a fan of Rocky Patel's smokes ever since a local tobacconist recommended them to me. Since then, I have tried the 1990, 1992, Sun Grown, and Edge Maduro Missles. All have been excellent and the 1990 is no exception. I will preface my comments by stating that I prefer medium-to-full bodied smokes, though flavor is what matters most. As far as the 1990 is concerned, it is a mild-to-medium bodied smoke. Don't be fooled by the dark wrapper. A lot of folks seem to think it will be strong because of this... but the Padrons also make mild smokes with dark wrappers. Flavor wise, the smoke takes about an inch before things get going, after which it produces a sweet, light smoke with very light spices. I also detected hints of nuts, toast, and maybe a little cherry. These are smooth and a great transitional smoke for those that have a preference for mild sticks but want to try something with a little more body. It does so without overpowering. Construction is solid, but like most Patel's I've tried, there are some slight burn problems which require attention to keep things burning evenly. With that said, I prefer the medium-bodied 1992's and the medium-to-full bodied Sun Grown. If you have a preference for fuller bodied smokes, go with the 1992 instead. I recommend these highly. When in doubt, try a 1990, a 1992, and a Sun Grown and decide which you like best. :)
