Earlier today, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars announced a price increase effective April 1.

The company will raise the prices across the board 2 percent, with the exception of the Edge which will increase 5 percent.

In a letter from company founder Rocky Patel, the price increase was said to be due to “rising costs associated with manufacturing and distributing cigars.”
