Not to be confused with Royal Vintage, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is introduced a new box-pressed Ecuadorian Sumatra line called Rocky Patel Royale. The Royale will debut at IPCPR featuring a soft brown and gold bands and in four sizes: Robusto ($8.95), Toro ($9.35), Torpedo ($10.30) and Colossal ($11.60). As is normal, the cigars are sold in boxes of 20.

The cigars are described as medium to full-bodied with a mixture of Honduran and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. Cigar Dave first broke news about the cigar, which has seen the details change a few times over the last few months. Rocky Patel expects to ship the cigars on August 15.
