Vintage 1992 Black Label

Stopped into my local B&M and bought a cigar.
The only reason why I bought it was that I have never seen it before.
It was a Rcky Patel Vintage 1992, but it had a black label with gold lettering as opposed to the "maroonish" label with gold lettering.
anyone familiar with these or have they ever seen them?

Thanks

B

Re: Vintage 1992 Black Label

Im almost positive the maroon and gold are aged 7 years, and the black and gold are aged 10 years. Enjoy it man

The Black Band and the Maroon Band are the same exact cigar, Rocky just changed the bands on the 92's. (copied from Stogie Guys)

Rocky Patel Updates His Classics: Rocky Patel unveiled three new smokes as we detailed in tour IPCPR preview, but also of note was that he updated the packaging of some of the smokes that brought him to fame. Such staples as the Vintage 1992 and Nording look completely different. The 1992, for example, now carries dual black bands to differentiate it from the Vintage 1990 line. In addition, the Rocky Patel Decade, Vintage 1990, and Vintage 1999 are all getting newly designed tubos.

Re: Vintage 1992 Black Label

I just picked one up tonight, a box press robusto. I asked the store owner about the black label. He said it was just to differentiate it from the 1990's because they are so similar. I think it looks sharp.

It made the entire appearance of the stick take on a more intense nature. It looks pretty kewl.

Agnes, have you seen my Don Diegos?

Re: Vintage 1992 Black Label

I just had one of these - (Torpedo) - and I must say this smoke is one of my favorites. I'm never disappointed, and I love the way the flavor profile continues to oh-so-slightly develop. Enjoy this stick!

Yup. I always wondered why they didn't do that soon. As soon as I saw the change in the catalogs a few months back I knew immediately they just changed to avoid confusion between the 92 and 90.

Re: Vintage 1992 Black Label

I actually recieved a five pack of 1992's with 1990 labels on them. Its even hard for the factory workers to tell them apart!
