The Rocky Patel Aged Limited Rare Second Edition is on its way to retailers, the company has announced.
As the company tells the story, the cigars were blended by Rocky in 2016 and then left in the aging room of the TAVICUSA factory in Estelí to rest. They use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, the latter coming from the company’s Estelí and Jalapa regions.
Like the previous ALR, it is being released in three sizes, each limited to 40,000 cigars:
- Rocky Patel ALR Second Edition Robusto (5 1/2 x 52) — $13 (Box of 20, $260)
- Rocky Patel ALR Second Edition Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $14 (Box of 20, $280)
- Rocky Patel ALR Second Edition Gordo (6 x 60) — $15 (Box of 20, $300)
Chief among the differences are that these cigars are box-pressed and come with different packaging.
