IPCPR 2013 Rocky Patel interview RP Royale & Platinum cigars coming soon


Rocky Patel is a ROCK STAR in the cigar world. Everyone knows the name and everyone at the wholesale international trade show for premium cigars IPCPR 2013 wants to talk to Mr. Popular. How did I eventually catch him??? I don’t know, but I did. After knowing Rocky personally for around eight years, I still had to wait for his many photo ops with loyal customers who were attending the show. Rocky Patel introduced five new lines at the show and I had him talk to me about two of them: RP Royale and the PLATINUM. I smoked them both and I really enjoyed the Platinum the best, but like Rocky said, this cigar is for the more experienced smoker and might be a “bit too much” for the occasional smoker. If you know and truly appreciate fine top quality cigars, keep your look out for the PLATINUM coming 4th quarter to a specially selected retailer near you. And listen to ROCKY who said “these cigars will be hard to find…”

IPCPR 2013 Las Vegas Cocktail Party

I’m here for all of you!

20130713-215045.jpgMy ear is to the ground listening for all the latest and greatest that the premium rolled cigar industry has in store for us all for the next 12 months!
There are several “players”, that have not shown up…some others are bigger while others are separating….General Cigar & Altadis companies are pulling their Boutique brands off on their own to show that they are more distinctive. Bravo boys, good move…it seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same. So many brands are coming out with 3-5 NEW lines at this show. Imagine that! 100+brands with NEW items! DO THAT MATH! That is well over 500+ new items are being shown for the very first time here @ the IPCPR 2013. I’ll be honest and tell you, NO ONE person or publication will be able to review them all! WoW! Imagine being a retailer?? What should they do? What CAN they do? They certainly can’t buy ALL the new items… Not even half… Not even a quarter??!!
Stay tuned to SEGALandCIGARS to find out this week MORE exciting news as the Trade Show officially kicks off Sunday July 14th at the Sands Convention Center here in hot & steamy LAS VEGAS.

BOLD by NISH Patel & Rocky Patel IPCPR 2013

20130713-170128.jpgBOLD by NISH Patel is being first shown here in Las Vegas @ IPCPR 2013.
Thanks to Rocky Patel for sharing this new cigar with SEGALandCIGARS.
Rocky & I go back eight years….he loves to share ESPECIALLY new products that he is proud of.
And BOLD is one of those cigars.
Funny though, I was expecting it to be BOLD like THUNDER by Nimish; but lucky for me, it was not. It was yummy & delicious but it did not knock me over(that’s not fun). BOLD is a well flavored rich spectrum cigar with lots of assorted flavor displays. A very different cigar from the more “milder” XEN by NISH. NISH has told me for years he personally appreciates a BOLD cigar, and now he has one….
Here’s the inside scoop from Rocky Patel & the IPCPR 2013

Happy 4th of July- How do you celebrate FREEDOM?

Enjoying a Rocky Patel FREEDOM Cigar in my backyard in San Diego,Ca

Enjoying a Rocky Patel FREEDOM Cigar in my backyard in San Diego,Ca

Freedom.

What is it?

Noun
  1. The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
  2. Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.

Hmmm…. I’m kinda sad after reading that definition…. I THOUGHT we HAD Freedom here in the USA, but alas, I was wrong…

item no.2 above states that Freedom is “Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.”

Sadly we NO LONGER have that here in the good ole USA.

Can we do things for our self or TO our self WITHOUT the government telling us what we can and can NOT do? Sadly NO!

I am so HAPPY that I do not live in Calabasas, California but rather inside the city limits of San Diego, California.

In Calabasas, one may not smoke anywhere….if your backyard backs up to another person’s property, they can call the police for violating THEIR “CLEAN AIR”.

What about US? the law abiding cigar smoker just trying to enjoy ourselves peacefully?

Well ALL I can say is I live and LOVE living in San Diego California where I CAN enjoy my self and share a cigar anytime and most outdoor places with friends.

I hope Everyone is Having a Great 4th. NOW, Go grab yourself a hand rolled premium cigar and exercise your right to smoke (unless you live in Calabasas :-( )

Enjoying a Rocky Patel FREEDOM Cigar in my backyard with beautiful women-HAPPY 4th!
