The Rocky Patel Royale was announced in May, Rocky Patel went on to say that this project has been in the works for the last 6 years. When the Rocky Patel Royale was launched at the IPCPR show in Aug of 2013 it was easy to see why Rocky Patel took their time on this one. The blend that is used in this Rocky Patel stick used only select tobacco that took quite some time to collect for use. The Rocky Patel Royale has an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a double binder of Connecticut Broadleaf and Connecticut Shade and a filler blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. Available in four sizes; Robusto, Toro, Torpedo and Colossal, the Rocky Patel Royale is packaged in boxes containing 20 sticks each.
