The latest from Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is on its way to stores.
Last week, the company began shipping the Rocky Patel Twentieth Anniversary, a cigar that commemorates company founder Rocky Patel’s 20th anniversary in the cigar business. It’s a cigar produced in Honduras by Plasencia using a Honduran wrapper, fillers from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras as well as Estelí and Jalapa, Nicaragua.
It’s available in five sizes: Rothschild (4 1/2 x 50, $9.65), Robusto (5 x 54, $10.15), Toro (6 x 52, $11.20), Sixty (6 x 52, $12.80) and Lancero (7 1/2 x 38, $9.65). Each size is available in boxes of 20. They were formally shown off at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July.
While Rocky Patel has been in the business for 20 years, his company has not always bared his name. Patel launched Indian Tabac in 1995. That name stuck until 2002, when Patel changed the company’s name to Rocky Patel Premium Cigars.
