Rocky Patel Juneteenth 1865 Project
The date was June 19th, 1865 – the federal holiday now commemorated as “Juneteenth.”
We’ll happily smoke a victory cigar to that.
Rocky Patel Juneteenth 1865 Project cigars feature some super tasty Nicaraguan long-filler and a double binder with Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. Around this, you’ll find a hearty and spicy Mexican San Andrés wrapper. This is a Rocky Patel specialty, so you know it’s all thrown into the mix for a great flavor.
Purchases of this 1865 Project blend in part benefit the Juneteenth Foundation. It’s a charity focused on celebrating the holiday, organizing events, awarding scholarships, and pursuing other programs. This is one of those blends that help a great cause, and we’re always excited when we can claim that our favorite vice is doing good in the world. When you head out to the patio to toast this one up, tell your household that you’re “off to do some charity” and that you wish others would follow in your do-gooder footsteps.
It’s worth a shot.
Rocky Patel Juneteenth 1865 Project cigars come with the flavor, big time. That San Andrés leaf brings a characteristic black pepper and earthiness that fans will recognize immediately. Combined with the Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos inside, the profile lands somewhere in the zone of a Mexican hot chocolate – earth and spice swirled together for a smoking experience that is just right on point. This is a bona fide summer hit to be enjoyed outdoors at barbeque parties and as much beer as you like.
After all, it’s a free country.
