Rocky Patel met with his good friend Erik Nording some years back to discuss making a line of pipes bearing his brand. This was his first venture into the pipe world, and was very successful. So the next logical step was to bring out a line of pipe tobaccos. Since Rocky already had jars for his Prohibition cigars, he thought that it would be a great way to present this new blend. The jars are attractive, with the "RP" logo emblazoned on them, and they hold 12 ounces of Rocky Patel Prohibition Pure & Simple.
Rocky Patel Prohibition Pure & Simple is an aromatic that strikes the perfect balance. It has a pleasant room note, but it's not heavy. It's sweet, but not cloying. It's smooth enough to enjoy all day long. It has a combination of vanilla and caramel essences that will remind you of someone baking, and a flavor that's velvety and mellow. For a first effort, this blend is a winner.
