Rocky Patel

Named the #2 Cigar of the Year in 2016, this Sun grown masterpiece is a fan favorite. It is unapologetically a full-bodied, broadleaf maduro wrapper with two Nicaraguan long-fillers. An honest-to-goodness treat if you love a full-bodied smoke. The flavors are earthy, nutty and bittersweet chocolate. The construction is impeccable and you’ll savor the long, satisfying finish. And all-around amazing cigar that won’t disappoint.

Rocky Patel cigars and sun grown wrappers were made for one another and you’ll discover just how true that is in every size of the fantastic Rocky Patel Sun Grown Cigars label. RP’s are some of the highest rated cigars we sell and fans are enthusiastic about their great taste, quality construction and smoking characteristics, along with the power they typically bring to the party. Add a tasty sun grown Ecuadorian Sumatra that enriched itself from the fertile soil to handle the elements it was exposed to and you’ve got a top quality powerhouse that any lover of strong cigars will certainly relish.

It’s amazing what one man can do with a decade of cigar experience behind him. That’s exactly what Rocky Patel has done with his 10th anniversary cigar, the Decade. One of Rocky Patel's finest creations impressively rated 95 by Cigar Aficionado. A dark oily Sumatra wrapper and Honduran long leaf filler offers a smooth, creamy and rich smoke. One of his best-sellers, and once you give it a try, you’ll understand why. A “must try” from the portfolio of one of the hardest working guys in the industry.

The Connecticut was one of Rocky’s first cigars. It is a mild-bodied smoke constructed with aged Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero tobaccos and a seven-year-old Connecticut wrapper. It is a silky smooth cigar with notes of cream and spice.

Sometimes, Rocky Patel makes it appear too easy. He keeps improving on what many think are near-perfect cigars. Take the Decade Cameroon for example. After the Decade’s release, and the endless accolades it received, you would’ve thought to leave well enough alone. But not Rocky. Always experimenting with new flavors and profiles, he decided to put a Cameroon wrapper overtop Decade’s filler and binder. Instantly, it was a hit! A smooth, complex and surprisingly well-balanced profile was (and is) the result. You’ll enjoy the layers of flavors with wood, caramel, coffee and roasted nuts being among them. Try this exceptional smoke, today!

Rocky delivers again with this extension to the very popular Rocky Patel Connecticut line, the Broadleaf. This smoke is more complex and robust than the Connecticut, but every bit as delicious. Draped in a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro, inside are the Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers with a smooth complexity with notes of cocoa, espresso, honey and pepper. This sumptuous Broadleaf is always worthy of your time. Try some today!  

It takes some boldness to follow in your big brother’s very accomplished steps, but that’s exactly what Nish Patel has done with this ‘bold’ offering. Nish spend five years perfecting this blend, and it was definitely worth the wait. The San Andres and Connecticut double binder wraps around premium Nicaraguan long-fillers that are jam- packed with flavors. Prepare yourself for the spicy burst of white pepper, cocoa, sweet spice and roasted coffee that boldly and robustly present themselves in this bold and intense smoke. Be bold. Try it today!

A balanced smoke with a touch of natural sweetness on the finish. Try the Rocky Patel Cri-Ojo today!

A Catch 22 is situation where you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. The only catch to this smoke is you’ll be damned if you don’t scoop up this deal. The reason this brand sells for significantly less than the rest of his lineup is for the very purpose that more budget-conscious smoker can enjoy the same premium cigar and a discount price. See? No catch. It’s all good! This medium-bodied smoke is rich and flavorful with notes of cocoa, rich earth and a luscious sweetness that will linger on the palate. Catch this one while you can!

A unique addition to the RP lineup, and this one is already a winner! It took home the #1 prize at the Honduran Cigar Festival in 2011 (the same year of its release). A Honduran puro with a hearty mix of long-leaf ligero fillers from Jamastran and Talanga Valley. Medium to full in body, this richly flavored and complex smoke has notes of espresso, tobacco, and spicy sweetness. Because it’s a limited-edition smoke it’s a foregone conclusion that they’ll sell out soon. So when you can, get your hands on this unique edition!

A stickler for quality, Rocky Patel makes sure each cigar has undergone rigorous tests to ensure it’s nothing short of perfection. Hailing from the rich soils of Honduras, this flower of a San Andres maduro wrapper unfolds into a bevy of flavors. It’s a mouthwatering, medium-bodied blend that offers an exceptional combo of espresso and chocolate flavors, with a spicy finish.

Hamlet Paredes is perhaps the best-known Cuban cigar roller. He would often travel internationally on behalf of the Cuban State-owned cigar industry to do in-store rolling demonstrations. Rocky Patel heard that Hamlet wanted to move his family to the United States, so he not only aided him in his immigration, but then set him up to work for him in Naples, Florida. Having never touched non-Cuban tobacco before moving to the US, Hamlet quickly learned how to use the new leaves. A Cuban-esque smoke if there ever was one, this release from Hamlet has a depth of flavor and richness of flavors normally found only in Cubans...until now. A smoke that will surely delight!

ABOUTRocky Patel

Rocky, the man behind the brand, is part of a new generation of cigar makers that has produced some of the best cigar lines in the last couple of decades. Unlike so many of the leading lights in the industry, with names like Fuente, Oliva and Perdomo, Rocky was not raised to the art of growing great tobacco and rolling premium cigars. He has incredible respect for those revered families and their traditional ways, and emulates them in many labels such as the boxed pressed RP Vintage 1992 cigars. He came by cigar making very differently. Patel’s passion for producing great cigars began in Hollywood, and that is a long, long way from Esteli, Condega or the San Agustin Valley. As an attorney for cigar loving clients with names like Hackman and Schwarzenegger, he was offered a steady stream of Montecristos, Macanudos and Fuentes. How could he not fall in love with world class cigars?
His newfound hobby intersected his entrepreneurial spirit and ignited a passion. The cigar boom of the 1990’s was just beginning and he joined it on the production side, quickly making his way to the head of the class of newcomers that included brands like Drew Estates and Alec Bradley. He began scouring the finest growing regions in Nicaragua, Honduras and the DR in search of the best leaves he could find. Not beholden to any region or farm, his lines use the best of the best. The RP Vintage 1990 cigars feature Honduran tobaccos while the Sun Grown line employs Nicaraguan fillers. The RP fusion melds Nicaraguan, Honduran and Cameroon leaves with tasty results.
Rocky Patel continues to produce some of the most highly rated and beloved cigars produced anywhere. They emphasize excellent construction with a traditional look and near-perfect smoking qualities. Most Rocky Patel labels are moderately strong to very strong and deliver full flavor. When you smoke an RP cigar you will appreciate Patel’s superb blend of tradition and a cutting edge approach to making great cigars.
