Fall in the Buff!

Labor day traditionally marks the end of summer. At the shop activity turns towards what’s happening in the Rocky Patel Lounge. Pre season football has attracted guys to the lounge to get their info for fantasy football draft day. Saturdays we feature collage games in the lounge. Sundays Mondays, and Thursdays it’s the pros. Major league baseball and soccer on Sunday mornings with Jay. Gather with friends and enjoy a game in the comfort and style of the Rocky lounge. There are some new additions to the humidor. New Insparado white and black blends from General cigar are selling well . Camachos new Barrel Aged Nicaraguan in toro and  gordo are an adtionion to the American barrel blend. Some very unique cigars from La Flor dominicana have arrived extremely limited and on the pricey side @$32.00 per stick. Hoping for our fall allocation of Opus XXX cigars soon. Alec Bradly has a new Black market Esteli coming soon and some really nice gift packs. Rocky’s new Java Red cherry is in stock in a corona shape for all you flavored cigar lovers. Undercrown Sun Grown is new and a great stick from our friends at Drew Estates. The hottest guy in the market right now is AJ Fernandez. New AJ blends are popping up from altadis  as additions to the H Upman lines. Punch Gran Puro has added a Nicaraguan blend to their very popular line. We look forward to the change of seasons and being your #1 choice for premium cigars
