I'm looking forward to trying the 15th and the consensus so far seem positive Thanks for the opinions, guys.

Anybody now about an RP Rep. coming to the Waterford/Commerce MI area April 22, '10 ?

ITC are a nice everyday cigar, prefer the Edge toro after a long day, Edge lites for the morning with coffee, had tried the R4 would not buy again, also like the connecticuts, renaissance, signatures, vintage, especiale are ok, have not tried the winter, summer or spring blends....

I do think that while the blends are sound many of them don't get the time to age and meld together as long as they should because of how quickly he pushes blends out the door and then immediately starts working on a new one.

@Kalutika, the OWR was a lot better a year later. I think (at the time and for the RP Event) Rocky released the cigars too early. Someone gifted me a few OWRs last year, and I was going to smoke one earlier this year, but the cigar was poorly constructed so I didn't get the chance to try it. I guess I should look for some on cbid.

I also like the Ocean Club he makes exclusively for Holts (which may remind me of the 2009 Winter Collection). It was a very nice smoke, but maybe with some rest, would have a different taste.

Chris, the decade is one of my favorite cigars.

Sandi, first time I ha an OWR I was pretty put off by the flavor profile. I have some left that have been sitting in the humi for quite a while. It may be time to give them another try.

The 2009 Spring Collection had a lot of kick to it. The 2008 Winter Blend tasted different than his other cigars (or at least from what I remember). I did have a 2009 Spring Collection a few weeks ago at Cigar Inn (Rocky walked in right after I lit the cigar) and it didn't have the same taste to it as it did when I smoked it at Cigar Inn's Rocky Event June 2009.

I also wasn't a fan of the Old World Reserve, however, I let one rest for a year and it was the best RP cigar I had.

IMHO, Rocky's cigars are hit and miss. Either you have to let them rest for a few months (OWR) or smoke them right out of the box (2009 Summer Collection).

I've tried the R4 and agree that it's a big disappointment. On the positive side, I recently tried the Decade EL, which has become one of my favorites.
