Fans of Rocky Patel appreciate the man’s charisma as much as they do his cigars. Rocky Patel segued from a successful career as an attorney in Hollywood in the mid-1990s to become a full-fledged cigar-maker in the midst of the Cigar Boom. Rocky began with a modest brand, Indian Tabac, which caught the attention of premium cigar retailers, consumers, and critics thanks to his relentless promotion of it. By 2003, Rocky made the decision to transition away from Indian Tabac to focus on the eponymous Rocky Patel cigars we know and enjoy today. It was a calculated risk and one that paid off. The Rocky Patel portfolio blossoms with a continual mix of premium cigars, new and old. Navigating them can be daunting for those less familiar with Rocky’s core brands. Below, we’ve untangled the maze, and we’re taking you straight to the top 5 Rocky Patel cigars in his brand’s extensive library.


#1 - Rocky Patel Decade

Among Rocky’s highest rated cigars is Rocky Patel Decade. The blend scored an impressive 95 points from Cigar Aficionado following its debut in 2007. Medium to full-bodied flavors of cedar, spices, and almond bless the palate with a hint of dried cherry. Handcrafted in Honduras, Rocky blended a proprietary recipe of Nicaraguan tobaccos under a shimmering Ecuador Sumatra wrapper leaf in a handful of iconic sizes. Rocky Patel Decade should be one of your first stops when you’re exploring Rocky’s finest.

Rocky loves to celebrate big milestones by blending a new cigar, and when he turned sixty in 2021, he unveiled one of his most impressive cigars to date, Rocky Patel Sixty. This attractive smoke is blended from an oily San Andrés wrapper and vintage Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos in a trio of balanced shapes. Intricate notes of coffee bean, nuts, pepper, and hickory mingle throughout a leathery and woody smoke. Rocky Patel Sixty cigars scored a 96-point rating and ‘#2 Cigar of the Year’ honors in Cigar Aficionado in 2022.

#5 - Rocky Patel Mulligans

Because Rocky is a perfectionist who works tirelessly expanding his portfolio, not every cigar he creates makes it into his production schedule. But that doesn’t mean these hidden gems shouldn’t see the light of day. The Rocky Patel Mulligans franchise was developed to showcase the finest Rocky Patel blends that didn’t make it to market initially, and they come in economical bundles you can buy for a big discount. Most Mulligans start in the range of $2 to $3 per cigar. The original Rocky Patel Mulligans blend consists of an oily Cuban-seed wrapper and a premium interior of well-aged long-fillers in five classic shapes. Notes of leather, black pepper, and cedar develop throughout a sweet and savory smoke. Today, there are dozens of Rocky Patel Mulligans cigars to explore in a wide collection of wrapper options, shapes, and tasting profiles. Sample one of our bestselling assortments, like the 10-count Rocky Patel Mulligans ‘Aces’ Collection or the 20-cigar Rocky Patel Mulligans Monster Deal, and tour the Mulligans portfolio in all its glory.
