Rocky Patel Prohibition Cigars Tell A Story



Rocky Patel Prohibition cigars tell a story. They remind us of a time 90 years ago, when liquor was outlawed and the strict regulation caused people to take matters into their own hands. Moonshine was made in bathtubs and sold in jars and crates.

As a reminder of what once was, the Rocky Patel Prohibition cigar was launched at the 2014 IPCPR. It's packaged as bootleg alcohol would have been. Several cigars are placed in jars and six jars are placed in a crate. The crates are sold with two different types of cigars- three jars contain Prohibition cigars with a San Andres wrapper and three have a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro Wrapper.

Both cigars have the same blend. Featuring some of the best tobacco Nicaragua has to offer, the cigar has a filler and a binder grown on farms in Esteli and Jalapa. The farms are owned by Rocky Patel, and they are produced at the Nicaraguan Tavicusa factory.

The cigar comes highly- recommended; the San Andres Prohibition received a 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado. The cigars come in Toro only, a 6 ½ x 52 size. Get a taste of Prohibition, and buy them for the best online prices from Cuenca Cigars.
