When you're a part of the premium cigar industry, celebrating anniversaries and birthdays is par for the course. Rocky Patel has clearly taken this to heart, releasing the Rocky Patel Sixty as the fifth cigar in the company's lineup to celebrate Patel's birthday on Feb. 26, 1961.
Debuting in 2021, the cigar is logically aimed at his 60th birthday. Not surprisingly, it's the cigar enthusiasts that are receiving the gift, as Rocky has pulled out all the stops in order to celebrate in style. Indeed, the Rocky Patel Sixty cigar boasts a premium-grade Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper and all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers from Nicaragua. As a finishing touch, the cigars have been aged for two years after being rolled, allowing the tobaccos to properly marry before making their way to humidors across the globe.
Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars awarded Rocky Patel Sixty Sixty the No.2 spot for 2022.
What does the Rocky Patel Sixty cigar taste like?
The Rocky Patel Sixty cigar is somewhat of a dessert smoke, being rich and decadent, and bursting onto the palate with medium-full-bodied flavors of earth, bittersweet cocoa, espresso, and sweet brown sugar.
