Thanks to minor cosmetic blemishes, Rocky Patel 1961 Seconds cigars are a steal!
It’s amazing, really, to watch the success of Rocky Patel’s new blends over the past two years. You’ve got to admire him. Initially hailed for his innovative, full-throttle Indian Tabac cigars in the late 90’s, yet just a few years later Rocky was cast aside as an outsider by most of the clubby cigar makers, the usual suspects claiming to be superior because of their “3 bazillion years in the business,” and “100 generations of family experience” in tobacco. But Rocky just kept plugging away, the hardest working man in the business – a guy who is on the road constantly, visiting even the tiniest of retail shops and working countless days in the factories of Danli, Honduras. In fact, I’ve been with him numerous times to Honduras; it is a sight to watch him relentlessly push for perfection, driving everyone in the factory nuts, single-mindedly devoted to crafting a great product. So it’s good to see things come full circle for him, garnering a slew of 90+ ratings and high praise from all who sample his blends.
Particularly good are 1961 cigars. And particularly special is this deal. You see, these Seconds are labeled as such because they have been rejected strictly for cosmetic reasons. The wrappers are a little splotchy here or have a slight discoloration there. But you could burn them blindfolded and detect no difference. The beauty is that the price is far, far less. Just keep in mind: this is not a regular production cigar. These only come around when the factory has some bundles that didn't make the premium cut, and my supply is extremely limited. That’s why I recommend you act soon if you’re interested.
