Cigar companies have long been family affairs, and it is even true of some of the new guard like Rocky Patel Cigars. Rocky teamed up with his brother Nish, the director of sales, to release the new Patel Bros. cigar. Wrapped in a dark Pennsyvlania Broadleaf maduro wrapper, the Patel Bros. cigar is supposedly the full production brother to the limited release Rocky Patel Winter Blend that was released earlier this year to rave reviews. Having hosted Nish a couple of times at the tobacco shop where I used to work, I can attest that this full-bodied cigar is in keeping with his personality and tastes.
I paired the cigar with coffee, talk about Nish and Sammy from Rocky Patel, and the importance of events. Also, congratulations to DJ for winning my birthday contest. Please send us your shipping address via our contact form so Corona Cigar Company can send you your prize.

From the Company: “For the first time in his company’s history, Rocky Patel has collaborated
with his brother Nish to create a full-bodied powerhouse cigar blend. The duo worked for years to find a robust and unique wrapper to accompany a special Nicaraguan filler and binder blend. A breakthrough came in the form of a beautifully dark and oily broadleaf wrapper selected from the tobacco fields of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. For each of their efforts, they decided to call the rich and bold cigar PATEL BROTHERS.”
