Press Release: New Rocky Patel HR500 to Honor Gary Sheffield
July 23, 2012 (Bonita Springs, FL) — The Rocky Patel Premium Cigar Company announced today the release of Homerun 500.
HR 500 is a special celebratory cigar blended to commemorate baseball great Gary Sheffield’s milestone 500th home run. This special edition brand is limited, much like Sheffield’s own exclusivity being only one of 25 MLB players to hit 500 or more home runs in his career.
HR 500 is blended with a dark Ecuadoran Habano-seed wrapper along with filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua and a Honduran Jamastran binder. This medium- to full-bodied cigar is balanced with flavors of sweet spice, pepper and coffee.
HR 500 is available in the Toro size (6 1⁄2 x 52) at the price of $12.20 and is manufactured at the Tavicusa Factory in Nicaragua.
