Rocky Patel Premium Cigars has officially announced the Ray Lewis Legends 52 cigar. The Ray Lewis Legends 52 is a cigar blended for NFL great Ray Lewis, who recently retired from the current Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens. The cigar will be launched at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas A couple of weeks ago, we noted a report from CigarNews.com in which Rocky Patel Premium Cigars talked about their upcoming releases for the 2013 IPCPR. While the cigar was mentioned, the official name of the cigar was not.
Ray Lewis becomes the third sports celebrity to have a cigar blended by Rocky Patel. Last year, the company launched the HR500 which was blended for baseball great Gary Sheffield. Late the company blended a cigar for hockey great Bernie Parent, but that was a cigar released on a more regional basis. It was reported on the CigarNews.com segment that a second cigar is in the works for Sheffield.
