For the first time in six years, the Rocky Patel Fifty is making a comeback. Today the Rocky Patel Premium Cigars announced that the Rocky Patel Fifty Toro is returning for a limited production run. The cigar will be showcased at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show.
The original Rocky Patel Fifty was released in 2011 to commemorate company founder Rocky Patel’s fiftieth birthday. 2,000 twenty-count numbered boxes were released in Robusto (5 1/2 x 50), Toro (6 1/2 x 52), and Torpedo (6 1/8 x 52) size. This time only the Toro returns for a run of 1,000 ten-count boxes.
“We’re excited to have the Fifty Toro back in the portfolio,” commented Patel in a press release. “Over the past few years, we were asked repeatedly for this cigar. It was the blend. It was the box. It was the whole luxurious package that the Fifty represented.”
The blend features an Ecuadorian Habano-seed Oscuro wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar is rolled at the company’s Tavicusa factory in Estelí, Nicaragua
Pricing is set at $21.00 per cigar – the same price as in 2011.
