Rocky Patel Vintage 99 Connecticut

Thoughts on these? I dont do the milds too much anymore, but a lot of my guests tend to prefer the light side. But a lot of the word i get is that these are the best in the game, when it comes to mild. I wouldve bought some already to sample but i dislike that they're rare enough that neither ccom or the sister site ever has a daily for them.


  • Ask Hugemoose about them - I think he liked them a lot. He loves the RP Connecticut and this is supposed to be kind of the souped up version so... :)

    I definately think they are better than the RP Connecticut, but as far as best mild there is, I dunno. I prefer the Gurkha Symphony, Oliva Connecticut, and 5 Vegas Gold to the 1999. The RP Signature is a better stick too, but it is more on the medium side.

    Yes they are very, very good for a mild cigar. I had one side by side as my friend had one of my RP connecticuts.....the difference was very noticeable.

    Almost makes me wish I had more of them and less of the regular ones!

    I'm not a fan of mild cigars, but these have a lot of flavor for a Connie wrapper. They are a LOT better than the regular RP Connie and IMO they are better than the 5 Vegas Gold. For my money though, if I'm going to smoke something with a connir wrapper it will be the Cabaiguan!

    In the toro size, they are my favorite mild connecticut.

    I havent had the 99 connecticutt, but the RYJ Reserva Real is the creamiest of all the ones Ive tried.

    The 99 is probably one of the best mild smokes I've had. You won't be disappointed.

    I just found out I have one of these, so I'll be trying it in the next couple days or so.

    Just wanted to followup that i did come across one of these a few days ago and gave it a spin. I dont typically do milds, but, this one was pretty darn good. Unfortunately i was smoking it outside and i was taking too long, by the final third, the elements had had their effect, and it started to get pretty rough. I would line them up against the gurk symphony pretty fairly.
