Rocky Patel Announces Java Red


A new spin on Rocky Patel’s coffee flavor-infused Java by Drew Estate line is coming to cigar shops next month, as today the company announced the Java Red. The cigar’s flavor profile is marked by the primary essence of cherry as well as notes of dark cocoa and coffee.


The new line will be available in the same six sizes as the Java Maduro, Java Latte, and Java Mint lines:

  • Java Red Corona (5 x 42) — $8.30
  • Java Red Petite Corona (4 1/2 x 38) — $7.05
  • Java Red Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $9.20
  • Java Red The 58 (5 x 58) – $10.55
  • Java Red Toro (6 x 50) — $9.75
  • Java Red Wafe (5 x 46) — $7.50

Four of the vitolas–corona, robusto, toro, and The 58–get a square press, while the Wafe gets an extreme trunk press. The lone round cigar is the petite corona, which also gets a pigtail cap.

The company is not disclosing the blend, but suggests that the cigar can be enjoyed with a variety of beverages, from a cocktail aperitif such as a Negroni or Manhattan to cordials such as Amaro or tawny ports, while it will enhance a piece of dark chocolate.

Like the other Java lines, the Java Red is produced by Drew Estate for Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, which distributes the lines.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League.
