Robusto Vintage 1999 Is a great great great cigar. The flavors of the cigar are a bit more spicy than I prefer. I do however enjoy the cigar in small doses I have five left and they should last a long time that being said 4 5 1
Robusto This Connecticut is by far one of the best I have ever had period. I was gifted one after smoking I bought two boxes. This blend is smooth with very good flavor notes. Highly recommend this cigar to everyone. 5 5 1
Robusto These are very mild smokes. They are good but definitely the mildest Rocky I have ever had. They don't taste bad but they are not very flavorful. So if you like mild and bland (couldn't think of a more neutral term) then this a good one for you. 4 5 1

Robusto Great cigar! Smooth draw and taste! Great after dinner cigar or with your favorite beverage! Share with a friend! 4 5 1
Robusto I was told by a few of my friends that Rocky Patel was a solid brand they weren't joking. This was a smooth smoke with consistent construction and an even burn. It had a mild peppery taste not too strong it tended to be more on the mellow side. From start to finish it was an enjoyable smoke. I think this will work itself into my regular rotation. 4 5 1

Robusto Very smooth and creamy. Very low in taste and extremely mild but nonetheless pleasing. Great slow burn 4 5 1
Robusto Have to agree with the majority on this one. Beautiful construction and appearance. Firm and smooth draw with notes of cream and hay. Before the burn I noticed hints of raisin and this stick was mellow throughout. My first RP and definitely not my last. 4 5 1
Robusto The vintage 1999 line by Pat r l cigars is a pretty tasty cigar. Sometimes good cigars like this are overshadowed by the huge piles of crap the company over produces. Cut the number of garbage lines rocky. Then people would see all your cigars as good instead of bring worried about wasting money on another garbage can lining cigar 3 5 1

Robusto A nice nutmeg mild wood and aged tobacco flavors from start to finish. Great for afternoons of weekends no strenght at all 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke was smooth and very flavorful without being harsh. Picked up dynamic flavors of cedar and coffee even a little touch of sweetness. The end cap was a little messy and the burn was not the most consistent although the flavors did not suffer from it and changed pleasantly throughout a little bit. This is a cigar I'll even enjoy tasting in the back of my throat when I wake up in the morning. 4 5 1

Robusto Creamy smoke with notes of cedar and toast. Draws nice and burns even. Mild flavors are easy on the palate. 5 5 1
Robusto This is a must have for your humidor. It's replaced my collection of Ashton Cabinets. Perfect for a breakfast smoke. While Ashton's appeal to me for their smooth peppery and spicy taste this stick offers a smooth earthy toasty buttery taste. A solid choice you will enjoy when you want a mild/medium stick. I am smoking one as I write this review and felt compelled to give it praise. 4 5 1

Robusto For me this was the strongest but most creamy cigar I've ever had. Very complex flavors and aromas. Beautifully rolled 5 5 1
Robusto Rather good. Typical Rocky Patel. I love rusbustos as they are short but still have a good flavor. 4 5 1
Robusto I got one of these out of a liquor store humidor. It was the last one so figured it must be decent. Long story short I ended up putting it down after a couple puffs. It tasted and smelled like burning hair. I hope I just got ahold of a bad one. 1 5 1
Robusto Not the most complex cigar I've ever smoked but it wasn't bad either. It's at least as good as Rockies other offerings except for the the 90 Vintage. 4 5 1

Robusto This is a mellow smooth stock of mild to medium body. But it's a great occasional stick. Definitely easy for the newbies to smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto Rocky's just seem to miss the mark for me. It was made well and had a nice draw with a good amount of flavor on a Connie wrapper but it just missed the mark with me. 3 5 1

Robusto This robusto for me needs to be more flavorful and complexity but what it is is consistent from start to finish smooth and well balanced 3 5 1

Robusto Personally I am not the biggest fan of the newer cigar taste profile where things are full of pepper and strength. The older I get the more I appreciate milder cigars that I can smoke without palate burnout. This cigar is a bit stronger than the more traditional Connecticut wrapped sticks, but still on the mild side of medium. Smooth, toasty aged tobacco flavors with a hint (not a lot) of sweetness. Just a little bit of pepper. Enough to make it more modern in taste profile, but not over-the-top by any means. Most were well constructed and all had a great open draw. Excellent aroma. I’d say try them if you are a veteran Connecticut cigar enthusiast looking for something a bit fuller, or a fan of pepper bombs looking for an easy approachable relatively mild stick. The flavors here should satisfy everyone. 4 5 1
Robusto There are MANY cigars in this price range that are better,(by any measure).Big drawback is that the wrappers are very thin and split easily. 3 5 1
Robusto Nothing to see here folks...move along.Poor construction,burned hot.Flavor was so-so.Not impressed. 3 5 1
Robusto It is a smooth creamy tasting cigar that I use for an everyday smoke. It tends to be rolled a little tight sometimes and the wrapper slightly dry but overall I continually buy this one. 4 5 1
Robusto Because of aggressive Rapid Fire auction pricing on 5 packs, these industry standard Connecticut gems are a steal. Smooth, rich Rocky Patel flavor you know you'll enjoy fro the first puff to the final draw. 4 5 1
Robusto Obtain a few RP Vintage 1999 Robusto cidars as part of a sampler pack. You can feel thr cigar is tightly rolled. When it comes to robustos, I usually prefer a punch. After the punch, because of the tight roll, i couldn't get a good draw. In the spirit of the punch, I proceeded anyway with my toast and initial light. To me, it felt like I had to work on getting a decent draw. After a few attempted puffs, I opted to cut the end. After my cut, thr draw was a little easier and I could taste the creaminess and smooth nodes. The first 1/3 was tough to get through, but after that the cigar seemed to open up a bit and the draw became easier. The burn was consistant and ashed fairly well. The last 2/3 were more robust and all in all was a good cigar. Now let me preface by saying I should have started this review by stating that I like a full body rodust cigar a good toro or robusto. Personally I wouldn't purchase this one again, but this cigar was good. 3 5 1
Robusto Mild flavor and mostly a smooth draw that’s slightly tight. Consistent flavor throughout. 4 5 1

Robusto Good smoke nice flavour 5 5 1
Robusto Another Great cigar by RP Vintage 1994 line of cigars, this checks all the boxes. 4 5 1

Rocky Patel Vintage 1999

Robusto 5.50 × 50 RPRO99

The Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Robusto cigar far exceeds its modest price by using seven-year-aged Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, covered by a gorgeous silky blonde 7-year old Connecticut Shade wrapper. This mellow masterpiece produces lush multi-layered notes of sweet cream, cocoa, baking spices, leather, and cedar, to provide a truly unforgettable smoking experience. We think its one of the best Rocky Patel creations ever made, and a slew of 90-plus ratings can back up that claim!
