The Return of Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve

Phillips & King now exclusively distributing the much-sought-after cigar in Corojo and Maduro.

Phillips & King is giving a hero’s welcome to Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve. This highly desired cigar is returning to the premium cigar category 10 years after its initial release, and is now being exclusively distributed by Phillips & King as of late September 2022. Known in the industry for their exceptional product selection and service, Phillips & King is pleased to add this customer-favorite, whose bold blend helped put Rocky Patel on the map when it was first launched.

“Rocky Patel’s Olde World Reserve is an iconic cigar that every premium tobacconist should have in stock,” says Jason Carignan, President of Phillips & King. “And the royal treatment from Phillips & King is ideal for its grand reentry to the market. We are excited to partner with the great minds and industry veterans at Rocky Patel, and are even more excited to get these cigars into the hands of our retail customers. The smokes are beautifully nuanced, and truly incomparable. We see great success ahead for both of our brands.”

One of Rocky Patel’s best-selling cigars to date, the Olde World Reserve offers a medium-to-full-bodied profile, with Nicaraguan binders and fillers, and two wrappers that bring their distinct regional flavors to the overall experience:
