Description

Return of a king

Originally released a few years back, Rocky Patel 1961 celebrates the year Rocky was born. Now, we could be immature here and make jokes about Rocky becoming an old man, but instead we’ll be serious. If you’ve ever burnt a Rocky Patel cigar, you know that this guy is the real deal. He’s got tons of blends, and they’re all great for different occasions.  

1961 is a medium-bodied blend that’s fit for any occasion. We’ve got a perfectly applied triple-cap on top of a seamless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The construction here is flawless. Rocky’s been in the cigar game for quite a while, and it shows in his skill. Lighting this one up, you’ll find a delicious bouquet of sweet, warm bread, with a light cedar-y spice. Easy to enjoy, easy to burn, easy to love — Rocky Patel 1961 is a homerun.

Rocky Patel 1961

Keith

In 2010, Rocky Patel cut the ribbon on his very first factory. Wait, I can hear some of you saying....hasn’t Rocky Patel been selling cigars for years? Indeed. But until this point his production had been contracted out. Rocky would work to create new blends, and then farm out the work to various well-established factories across Central America. Now he’s begun shifting to his own facility, a small startup operation in Esteli, Nicaragua. This factory’s first release: Rocky Patel 1961.

RP 1961 is made with an oily, reddish-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Judging by looks alone, expectations are high. Unfortunately, the flavor profile and overall experience is very deflating. The high points: smooth, medium-bodied, draws well, and has a pleasant sweet-cedary taste. Sadly, this is where the fun stops. I kept puffing, and waiting, and waiting some more....but was wholly underwhelmed. RP’s 1961 is a perfectly acceptable cigar with some favorable qualities, but overall, especially considering the $7 to $8 cost per stick, it needs a lot more. Let’s hope this is just a hiccup and not a glimpse into Rocky’s future output.
