Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is turning back the clock nearly 90 years to find inspiration of one of its IPCPR new releases, the Rocky Patel Prohibition.
The cigars will feature some of the most unique packaging the company has used to date, as they will come in wooden crates reminiscent of those used to carry bootlegged liquor. Each crate will come with six Rocky Patel-branded glass mason jars decorated with loose tobacco, and in each of those jars will be 16 cigars featuring one of two wrappers. Three of the jars will feature a cigar wrapped in a Mexican San Andrés leaf, while the other three will have cigars that use a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro.
Both cigars use a 100% Nicaraguan binder and filler that comes from Patel’s farms in the Estelí and Jalapa regions of the country.
The Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro version of Prohibition is described as well-balanced with a predominant sweet spicy profile.
Rocky Patel Prohibition is available in a single 6 ½ x 52 toro vitola with an MSRP of $8.00 per cigar before taxes. The Rocky Patel Prohibition is being manufactured in the TAVICUSA factory in Nicaragua.
A shipping date has not been announced by the company yet but is expected to be confirmed once the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show opens on Sunday, July 20.
