Rocky Patel Premium Cigars (RPPC) has expanded the acclaimed Rocky Patel Royale brand to a seventh frontmark. It is a 6 inch by 60 ring vitola simply called Sixty, and it will be shipping to tobacconists nationwide in mid-March.
The new size was added due to consumer demand for a standard gordo size. Rocky Patel Royale Sixty will be packaged in 20-count boxes and has a suggested retail price of $12 per cigar.
Since the brand was first in introduced at the IPCPR trade show in 2013, Rocky Patel Royale has been one of the RPPC’s most successful lines rolled at TaviCusa, Rocky’s boutique factory located in Esteli, Nicaragua. The Royale Toro tops the list of brand accolades, named the #5 Cigar of the Year in 2014 by Cigar Aficionado, as well as the #3 Cigar of 2014 by Cigar Journal.
Rocky Patel Royale is currently available in Corona, Robusto, Toro, Torpedo, Colossal, Toro Tubo, and Sixty. And along with the Colossal and the Toro Tubo, the new Sixty will be a rounded parejo, while the other four frontmarks have sharp box pressing.
