Rocky PAtel Sungrown

Just had my first one. I tend to enjoy everything Rocky does and this is no exception. MMM mmm what a yummy cigar. I only had 3 months of age on it. I have one more I wanna try to put a year on.... but i dunno if I can wait that long :-)

    Had one that was very bitter on the finish and not as much spice as I was expecting. I still want to revisit cuz I hear nothing but good things.

  • The vintage 1990s and 1992s are quite tastey as well.

    I had 10 of these that I have been aging, they have almost a year and a half on them now and smoked one the other day and was very pleased. I think they age nicely along with the Maduro Olde World Reserve.

    The sungrown is one of my favorite Rocky Patel smokes. I had one a few weeks ago with well over a year on it and it was smooth and delicious, although I don't think that much age is necessary to really get a nice age/rest effect, 6 months would probably do. The cool thing with these is that they are available in RP variety packs for about $3/each all the time.

    I absolutely agree with this. I have had some with as little as 2-3 weeks, and some up to a year and a half and they have been pretty great at both extremes. I might even be so bold as to say it was better when it was more fresh. Around 3-6 months is just about perfect IMO.

    The RP SG is a great stick IMO

    Same thing happened to me. I just got another from ccom about a year ago and I plan on having it soon. They usually get good reviews so I'm assuming we just had a bad stick or one that was recently rolled.

    This was one I tried early on when I started this hobby and it and the Vintage 92 got me hooked! I didn't have one for about a year or so and when I revisited it a few months ago and really enjoyed it still.

    I traded and got some RP OSG (Original Sun Grown) few months ago, and have to say these smokes are very, very good. Little different than the current blend, IMO a little better. They have a few years of age on them since they aren't made anymore. They are maturing very nicely.

    Definitely give this one another go fellas - hate to see people miss out on a great stick just because they got one bummer.

    You should definetly try again! I had a couple of these with problems, but it was probably bad handling on my part, all the rest have been marvelous from light to nub.
