Rocky Patel Royale gets a 6 x 60

Rocky Patel Premium Cigars issued a press release announcing the expansion of its Rocky Patel Royale brand. The company is adding a vitola called 60 (a 6 x 60) to the lineup.

According to the release, “The new size was added due to consumer demand for a standard gordo size. Rocky Patel Royale Sixty will be packaged in 20-count boxes and has a suggested retail price of $12 per cigar.”

The brand made its debut at the 2013 IPCPR trade show, and the cigar landed a spot on Cigar Snob’s Top 25 Cigars 2013. The 60 joins several other vitolas of Rocky Patel Royale: Corona, Robusto, Toro, Torpedo, Colossal, and Toro Tubo. The 60 will be a round parejo like the Colossal and Toro Tubo, while all the other vitolas are box-pressed.
