Casa de Montecristo (CDM) has announced it is receiving an exclusive Robusto Grande (5 1/2 x 54) size of the Rocky Patel ALR Second Edition line.
Rocky Patel Premium Cigars introduced the ALR Second Edition line back in 2019. ALR stands for Aged, Limited & Rare. “Second Edition” refers to the second blend in this series. The concept behind the ALR line is simple – it involves developing a cigar, rolling the cigar, and then taking the completed cigar and aging it for an extended period of time. The idea around this is to see how the cigars perform after being aged for a minimum of two years. Since then, it has been an ongoing release.
“We at Rocky Patel are thrilled to provide Casa de Montecristo with one of our most exclusive cigars in a special shape,” said Rocky Patel, owner of Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, in a press release. “This rare Vitola in the ALR2 provides the same beautiful smoke and flavor components one is used to smoking in our Award Winning ALR2. This special shape, however, does lead to an enhanced smoking experience.”
Casa de Montecristo’s CEO Sherri Sieminski said, “Rocky Patel is one of Casa’s most important partners and the ALR2 is a true customer favorite,” Sieminski said. “We continue to seek quality premium products that can only be found at Casa de Montecristo, and we are honored to collaborate on this exclusive offering for our guests.”
The Rocky Patel ALR Second Edition Robusto Grande for Casa de Montecristo is offered in ten-count boxes. Each cigar will have a price point of $16.00 MSRP. Casa de Montecristo says Casa Rewards members will have first access to purchase this cigar. To sign up for Casa Rewards, click here.
