While Rocky Patel Premium Cigars launched four new lines at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, it is perhaps the Rocky Patel Prohibition line that caught the most attention.  The name is obviously a play on the increasing threat of prohibition against the tobacco industry, but it was also the packaging that took center stage.

The cigars are packaged with loose tobacco in Rocky Patel branded mason jars reminiscent of the Prohibition-era moonshine bootleggers.  The jars are also packaged in crates reminiscent of the Prohibition era.  This is believed to be Rocky Patel’s first jar release.

Rocky Patel Prohibition actually is a line that will have two distinct blends – a Connecticut Broadleaf and a San Andres Mexican wrapper version.

The Rocky Patel Prohibition joins the Catch Twenty-TwoRocky Patel Super Ligero, and Rocky Patel Decade Cameroon as releases by the company launched at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show.
