Rocky Patel has a well-earned reputation for uncompromising quality. He has received so many stellar ratings and awards from industry groups and publications, he's in a class by himself. Every cigar he makes undergoes rigorous quality control measures to ensure that only the best cigars from the rolling table make it to a consumer's hand. No wonder his sticks are some of the most sought after in the world! The Number 6 is no different with earning the #9 spot in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2020 with a 95 rating and Best Cigar Honduras 2020 by Cigar Journal! When Rocky Patel starts a new blend, it goes through numerous rounds of tweaking before the final blend is settled. This cigar went through six rounds before landing on the final blend, hence the name Number 6. Handmade in the El Paraiso factory in Honduras, the Number 6 includes a Honduran-grown Corojo wrapper, a Honduran binder, and a filler blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves. Medium in body, once lit you’ll find notes of honey, vanilla, coffee, earth, and bread. Enjoy with a Johnnie Walker Black.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
