Some refer to Rocky Patel as one of the giants of
the cigar industry and, well, now there is a giant cigar to solidify that
claim. The Rocky Patel Royale Colossal is truly a massive undertaking for those
brave enough to tackle its enormous size, but the flavors and complexity that
follow will are the stuff of myths and legends!
The Rocky Patel Colossal is an imposing 7” x 62
cigar that commands attention. The bulk of the beefy stick is made up of lush

onslaught of earth, cedar, spice, leather and espresso flavors. The
medium-to-full bodied smoke seemingly morphs into a different character with
