Winter is coming.
Today, Rocky Patel began shipping the 2020 version of its Winter Collection, which uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers.
It is offered in four sizes:
- Rocky Patel Winter Collection Corona (5 1/2 x 42) — $8.50 (Box of 20, $170)
- Rocky Patel Winter Collection Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $10.50 (Box of 20, $210)
- Rocky Patel Winter Collection Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $11.50 (Box of 20, $230)
- Rocky Patel Winter Collection Sixty (6 x 60) — $12.50 (Box of 20, $250)
Winter Collection was most recently sold in 2012, then as a limited edition limited to 2,000 boxes per size, though it appears that some catalog retailers have continued to offer that cigar to this day. Unlike the 2012 version, it is not box-pressed. Winter Collection debuted in 2008 as a cigar made by AJ Fernandez.
The new version is being made at the Rocky Patel’s Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A. (TAVICUSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
