On February 26, 2021, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars’ owner Rocky Patel turned 60 years old, and as has become customary with a milestone birthday, the company has a cigar to commemorate the occasion – in this case the Rocky Patel Sixty.
The Rocky Patel Sixty is scheduled to make its debut at the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show in Las Vegas. The cigar will be an exclusive offering to PCA Trade Show attendees. Last year, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars was announced as one of nine companies that would be doing a PCA Trade Show exclusive cigar for the 2021 Trade Show. The Rocky Patel Sixty marks one of the more formal PCA Trade Show exclusives announced to date.
Produced at Rocky Patel Premium Cigars’ TAVICUSA factory in Estelí Nicaragua, the Rocky Patel Sixty consists of a Mexican San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigars will be available in four sizes (Half Corona, Robusto, Toro, and 6 x 60). Each size will be box-pressed. The cigars will be presented in 20-count boxes.
Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is known to release cigars for Patel’s birthday. In 2009, the company released the Rocky Patel 1961 (a cigar in honor of the year Patel was born). This was followed in 2011 with the debut of the Rocky Patel Fifty (in honor of Patel’s 50th birthday). In 2013, the company released Rocky Patel II-XXVI (the II-XXVI is 2/26 – the date of birthday’s birthday). Finally in 2016, the company released the Rocky Patel Fifty-Five (in honor of Patel’s 55th birthday).
The PCA Trade Show opens July 10th in Las Vegas Nevada.
