In an industry flooded with big name premium cigar manufacturers, none stand out more than Rocky Patel cigars. A survivor of the cigar boom, Patel has outlasted his competition with unrivaled persistence on his quest for perfection that allowed him to become one of the pioneers of the now thriving boutique cigar market. Along with his star-studded portfolio of small batch and regular production cigars, he has amassed a selection of vintage blends considered by many brand loyalists and industry experts alike to be the best of the best.
Now to offer the value conscious smoker a chance to experience Rocky’s famous vintage blends, he along with the artisans at his famous factory in Nicaragua have created two lines of vintage cigars made in “Cuban-Sandwich” format and sold in no-frills 20-count bundles to keep the price affordable without sacrificing quality.
Rocky Patel Vintage 2006 Fumas
First on tap is the Rocky Patel Vintage 2006 Fumas. Available in a 5 x50 Robusto, and a 6 x52 Toro, this tightly packed mixed filler blend features the same vintage Mexican San Andres wrapper and fully aged Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers found on his first-run super premium blend. If you were lucky enough to experience the original medium to full bodied blend, you’ll still savor the same bold notes of leather, caramel, and sweet, dark chocolate, albeit in a slightly hotter, and slightly quicker burning smoke.
Rocky Patel 20th Anniversary Fumas
Rocky’s second value priced vintage gem is the Rocky Patel 20th Anniversary Fumas cigars. Made to celebrate Rocky’s twenty years in the premium cigar industry, these top-notch fumas, are rolled in the same Robusto, and Toro sizes with both EMS and Maduro Honduran wrappers over long fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua, once again in “Cuban-Sandwich” form. Like its stunning, top-rated, boxed and banded cousins, you’ll experience complex medium to full bodied flavors of espresso, spice, sweet cedar, pepper, and leather, with the maduro selection bringing heavy chocolate tones to the mix. And, just like the Rocky Patel Vintage 2006 Fumas, the 20th Anniversary selection offers a comparable smoke that won’t break the bank.
In summary, we’re not saying that the 2006 and the 20th Anniversary Fumas can replace their heralded counterparts, but for running errands, doing yardwork, or sharing with friends, you’d be hard-pressed to find a vintage cigar at this rock-bottom price with such exceptional quality and great taste.
