6.5 Inches of Disapointment (Indian Super Fuerte Maduro)

I am with the original reviewers opinion. The pre-light draw and the first half inch of the cigar was pretty good. Then it fell on its face. Not much there. I have 19 left hopefully they will pick up.

Def. give these another shot. I really like the coronas and the beli's in the maduro wrapper. They deliver flavor at a great price. I have not had any with tight draws, they do typically burn bad but I don't care about that at all. Hope you have better luck next time.

There is quite a difference between the ITSF nat and mad. The nats don't need much time but the mads need quite a long nap IMO, 6-8 months.

My favs of these (the Maduros) is the Belicoso. I have some with a couple of years of age and they are smoking great right now.

I hated the first Rocky I ever smoked. I think it was a Vintage 1990 off the truck--but after six months in storage they came around nicely.

The posters on this thread are giving good advice--patience will be rewarded.

The one Rocky that is ready to smoke immediately (for some reason) is the Edge Maduro (especially the Toro).

That is what I have found too.
The Nats only need a cat nap.
The Mads need a good hibernation.
I have about 30 of the Mads sleeping right now and have about 10 others that are ready to smoke.
With the right nap they are great IMHO.
