Rocky Patel Releases Vintage 1999 Minis

Rocky Patel Premium Cigars (RPPC) announced the release of a diminutive vitola for the popular Vintage 1999 series call Minis. They will be hitting retailer shelves in early April.
Crafted at Honduran American Tobacco S.A. in Danli, Honduras, these tiny Mini cigars measure just 4 1/4 inches by 32 ring, yet the cigars feature the same aged Connecticut shade wrapper best known on the Vintage 1999 cigar brand.
Rocky Patel, President and CEO of RPPC, describes the Minis as “the perfect mild smoke in under ten minutes.” Nish Patel, Executive Vice President of RPPC, states that the Minis “maintain that creamy, buttery, ‘nuttery’ taste, just like the other 1999 shapes.”
The Vintage 1999 Minis come packaged in tins of ten small cigars retailing for $17 (or $1.70 per cigar).
Rocky Patel released the Vintage 1999 brand onto the market in 2006. It was lauded for being the oldest true Connecticut shade wrapper used on any mild cigar. The Vintage 1999 brand is available in the following vitolas: Petite Corona, Robusto, Toro, Churchill, Torpedo, The Sixty, Perfecto, Toro Tubo, Glass Tubed Robusto, Glass Tubed Churchill, and Juniors (the size that, at 4×38, is nearest in dimension to the Minis).
