    Rocky Patel American Market Selection. Tried it and don’t like it at all. Very monotone. I keep trying them but I just can’t get into the Rocky cigars. Maybe it’s just me but they really don’t have anything outstanding about them. If someone can give me one to try that’s good I’ll put it on the list to smoke.
    The RP 2003 cameroons are pretty good but otherwise I'm not overly impressed with RPs

    The old 1990 and 1992 were excellent but I also have a hard time warming up to his later cigars.

    Tried the Oscar Leaf Sumatra based upon a comment in this thread. Very good and smooth. I’m of the opinion that the last third of a cigar is where it really tells you what it is. This one really became smooth.

    Ive always had issues with tunneling, burning out, or falling apart on me with Rocky Patel cigars. The only ones I didn't have issues with were the Mexican San Andreas Prohibition cigars and the Gary Sheffield cigars. I really enjoyed those two and wanted to enjoy the others. Just don't want to risk wasting money on them anymore tho.

    Lay it on me, what is it?
    Leccia Tobacco. Sam Leccia is from the Pittsburgh area. He made tobacco labels from different colored wrapper leaves into Pittsburgh Penguin logos. Pretty creative and honestly, much more detailed than the shitty phone pic depicts.

    So a question for the in crowd... I haven't been paying attention but has San Luis Rey been discontinued? I'm gonna cry if they have... The Regios is/was probably my most favorite CC. Say it ain't so!

    I got you on this www.alpscigar.com

    Looks like you might be right though.


    Good luck.
