Rocky Patel

THIS JUST IN:  Rocky Patel—thinks inside the box.


Celebrity smoe and professional cigar-maker Rocky Patel blends an extremely popular and (drumroll please…) ever expanding batch of high-profile cigars.

Amazingly, Rocky Patel was originally known as a Hollywood entertainment lawyer whose clients included such celebs as…

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gene Hackman.

Consequently, Rocky Patel was introduced to the art of cigar smoking by spending time with the actors between takes.

Obviously, this ignited Patel’s interest in the cigar industry.

With that in mind, Rocky subsequently sold his legal practice and spent five years in Honduras working and learning the cigar trade.

Born in India on the 26th February 1961, Rakesh “Rocky” Patel introduced the Indian Tabac blend in the mid 1990s.

In 2003, Patel altered the company’s history by changing its name from Indian Tabac to Rocky Patel Premium Cigars.

As it is now, Patel’s first cigar featured his name…

The Rocky Patel Vintage

Since the company’s new marketing direction began, Rocky has launched numerous top-selling brands, including The Edge, Decade, Fifteenth Anniversary, Royale, Java, Twentieth Anniversary, and the Sun Grown Maduro.

Just picture it as a star-studded obsession, that not a single day goes by without Rocky Patel—thinking about cigars.

And, yes—it’s extremely important for Rocky Patel to showcase cigars that just seem to—stay in your mind and sell themselves.

Almost certainly, if you ever have seen Rocky at a trade show or the Cigar Smoking World Championships, you’ve probably heard someone say…

“I saw Rocky Patel on a road trip.”

Often, seen as an industry phenomenon—Rocky Patel maintains the enthusiasm he has had since day one.

He rarely sees his home and headquarters in Naples, Florida.

Yearly, he logs more than 300 days on the road and over 150,000 miles.

He once brainstormed 600 cities within 750 days.

However, the time spent in the Rocky Patel trade show booth is worth it, considering that in every town, Rocky strives to get his cigars in the hands of as many people as possible.

Often, you can find yourself in a small intimate venue where you are able to witness— just how that wonderful aroma matches the flavours and strengths with every puff—who knows—you might even see Rocky himself…

Hanging out. Staying late. Spending time.

Talking with you and his fans.

To be sure, you’ll learn to—treasure moments just like these.

Because sometimes when a brand hits it big… it may never happen again.

So, if you can make it…

And you want to be able to say…

“I saw Rocky Patel on a road trip.”

Grab yourself a Rocky Patel cigar and enjoy those sensations.

Note, for the international tripper—Rocky Patel also hosts vacation packages to view the inner-workings of his Honduran and Nicaraguan factories.

Most importantly, once your tour is over…

Rocky makes sure that you have a variety of fresh cigars and ice-cold beer at the ready.

You’ll see, aside from maintaining a on-going presence in the public eye and inviting you on a road-trip of a lifetime, Rocky Patel believes that blending tobacco from various regions creates its own unique identity for every Rocky Patel cigar brand.

Rocky Patel cigars are produced throughout Central America, from the company’s factories in Nicaragua, Honduras and even the Dominican Republic.

Rocky’s goal is to construct more complex cigars, while avoiding the puros, whose leaves—filler, binder, and wrapper—are all grown in the same country.

Of course, developing complex blends takes a lot of time and love to do things right.

Still, every single cigar is checked by hand, looking for the aesthetic beauty of the wrapper, with no veins showing, or dark spots—so that all you’re left with is— that clean cigar smoldering between your fingers.

So you see, that’s time well worth it.
