Earlier this month  Rocky Patel Premium Cigars began shipping the Royale Sixty, a 6 x 60 version of the blend, to retailers nationwide.

The Royale uses an Ecuadorian wrapper, dual Connecticut broadleaf and U.S. Connecticut shade binders, and fillers from Nicaragua. As for the Royale Sixty, it will be round—like the Colossal and Toro Tubo sizes. The other four sizes—Corona, Robusto, Toro and Torpedo—are all box-pressed.

Suggested pricing is $12 per cigar and it is packaged in 20-count boxes.

The Royale is produced at the company’s Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A. (TAVICUSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
