Well-known throughout the cigar industry, only Rocky’s illustrious brand portfolio outshines his personality. Originally released in 2009, Rocky Patel 1961 is a celebration and commemoration of Rocky’s birth year. Rocky Patel 1961 is a thing of beauty, with a perfectly applied triple cap and a chestnut brown, Habano wrapper from the fertile soils of Ecuador. Upon first light you’ll find some sweetness, some spice, and a toasty, bread-like core with a pleasant, cedary aroma. Quality and construction is on point as with all Rocky’s premium releases. If you’re looking for an easy to enjoy, medium-bodied, well-balanced brand, 1961 deserves careful consideration for a prime spot in your humidor.
