After two years of extra aging, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars (RPPC) began shipping the highly anticipated 20th Anniversary Maduro brand to tobacconists nationwide on the first week of March.

The 20th Anniversary Maduro comes to market nearly two years after its companion brand, 20th Anniversary Natural, made its debut. The two brands were slated to be introduced simultaneously at the IPCPR trade show in 2015, yet the Maduro wrapper exhibited a need for further aging. Hence, the late launch.

I wasn’t fully satisfied with the Maduro blend. The flavor was there, but it needed more age to really achieve greatness. And we’ve done it before, keeping cigars in our aging room for another year or two until they’re perfect.Rocky Patel

Now, the 20th Anniversary brands fulfill the dichotomy of having two unique and complex brands celebrating two decades of RPPC’s existence. Both the Natural and Maduro lines feature identical Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers and Honduran binder tobaccos, yet the 20th Maduro showcases a dark, rich wrapper from Jamastran Valley in Honduras. The finished blend provides a dense, earthy smoke highlighted with notes of bittersweet chocolate and cedar.
