Rocky Patel Uses Broadleaf for Private Cellar

Rocky Patel is calling his company’s new release, Rocky Patel Private Cellar, a personal favorite. The three-size, broadleaf-clad line was released at the IPCPR trade show.

Billed as a medium-to-full-bodied cigar, Private Cellar is made with a Nicaraguan binder, Nicaraguan fillers and a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. It is being rolled at Patel’s Tavicusa factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Patel says the blend is one he has “been working on and aging for a number of years.”

Private Cellar will be available in the three standard Rocky Patel sizes: Robusto at 5 inches by 50 ring, Toro at 6 1/2 by 52, and Torpedo at 6 1/8 by 52. They will come packaged in boxes of 20 and will all be priced within a few cents of $8.50 each.
