Some domestic quickie reviews

Rocky Patel The Edge maduro torpedo - An absolutely beautiful cigar to look at with a lovely oily wrapper. Do I need to say that it is strong? As I smoked it I was starting to think that is was a bit -too- strong, not in the stomach-turning way but rather that the one dimensional strength was out pf proportion with everything else. But after I smoked it, I kept thinking about it and how I wanted another one. That's one way that I know that I really enjoyed a cigar. These are too new to know, but if they age well then they're gonna be be monsters in about five years. As they stand today, they get a very solid 90/100

Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 churchill - A beautiful oily wrapper is lived up to by the fine taste. Again, a tad one-dimensional, but it's a good dimension. 90/100

Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 robusto - Aha! This is what the RP buzz is about, for me anyway. Beautiful to look at, wonderful aroma, and most importantly it is absolutely delicious. This is a GREAT and world class cigar - when they get this good, country of origin means nothing. If these get any better then people will start smuggling them INTO Cuba. I'm glad that I've got some of these on the way from Famous. 93/100

H. Upmann Anniversary Seleccion #1 - What can I say - this cigar sucked. A boring and bland cigar in every way, its only "characteristic" was a grassy harshness. I like most domestic Upmanns but this one is a loser. 80/100

Camacho Candela Monarca - Who says that candelas are flavorless? Not Senor Camacho! This is a wonderful and tasty cigar that I will definitely stock up on. 89/100

La Gloria Cubana Felicias Reserva Figurado - This one was OK but I expected more. It was stunning to look at and fairly flavorful, but not in the league of a good Wavell maduro. I'll have to try one of the larger sizes. 87/100
