The 1929 is a cigar made by Rocky Patel for our owner Rich Castiano and his father, Sal Castiano. On a trip to Nicaragua Rich and his father Sal, along with our friend Rocky Patel, personally selected the fine tobaccos that ultimately became the cigar that proudly bears the Castiano family name. The 1929 is a great cigar to start the day as well as being the perfect smoke to offer a friend. This is a special blend that we hope becomes your everyday smoke.
The 1929 is a blend of Nicaraguan fillers, a Nicaraguan Jalapa binder with an exquisite Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. After seeing his father, Sal Castiano, savor this amazing blend Rich made the decision to produce the 1929 as a tribute to the year he was born.
The 1929 is manufactured in the Tabacalera Cilla Cuba (Tavicusa) factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The Tavicusa factory is owned by Rocky Patel in a partnership with Amilicar Perez, a maestro tobaqueros who has been in the cigar industry since 1991. Some of the cigars to Perez’s credit include the Rocky Patel 1961 and 15th Anniversary which are both also made at the Tavicusa factory.
The 1929 is a cigar that can be enjoyed by the most seasoned aficionado to the occasional smoker. It delivers a very mild medium bodied balance with the undeniable Rocky Patel quality. The exceptional draw induces a smoothness that combines a toasty, creamy flavor with subtle hints of cocoa, and its uniques box press is as memorable as its silky finish.
The 1929 is available in four sizes, Robusto, Lonsdale, Toro and Torpedo.
On April 27th at the Gulf Coast Town Center location we will be featuring the 1929 at our Cigar of the Month Party. Come to meet Rich and Sal Castiano and take advantage of the great deals on this cigar line!
At the party we will also be pairing the 1929 with a great Scotch blend from one of Rich’s favorite companies, Johnnie Walker. Swing is a Scotch originally blended by Sir Alexander Walker, Master Blender par excellence and grandson of John Walker. There are up to thirty-five individual whiskies used in the creation of swing, each carefully selected by the Master Blender, whose task is to consistently reproduce the original character of the blend devised by Sir Alexander Walker. The result of these blends is a luxurious flavor that’s light in the foreground, with sweet mouth-watering depth developing on the palate.
