Brand of the month: Rocky Patel Cigars, is a boutique cigar manufacturer that is relatively new in the cigar industry. Here’s a look at this interesting and refreshing cigar brand that consistently produces top quality cigars.
- The history of Rocky Patel Cigars
Named after its founder Rocky Patel, this cigar company is a relatively new name in the industry and has only been producing cigars professionally since the mid-nineties. It all started when Rocky, joined the Havana Club in LA with a keen interest in the cigar industry, and was approached with a business plan to manufacture cigars for the American market. Rocky made the investment and founded Indian Tabac cigars.
This young vibrant company, based in Bonita Springs, Florida, came to the cigar marketplace in 1996 with fresh ideas, bold packaging and fuller cigars which proved popular. In 2002, the company became Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, launching the Vintage 1990 and Vintage 1992 cigars in 2003. The Vintage Series was a resounding success and received “Best of the Best” accolades from the Robb Report. The Vintage 1990 Robusto was rated 92 by Cigar Aficiondo, and the Vintage 1992 Torpedo was rated 90.
