Introducing HR 500 cigars, a collaboration between Rocky Patel and Gary Sheffield, two men who know their craft well. Scratch that - extremely well. Both super-stars in their own right, HR 500 cigars are a limited-edition release celebrating Gary Sheffield's career achievement of hitting 500 home-runs.
In order to capture such an impressive achievement, Rocky crafted each cigar into a hefty 6.5" x 52 toro. This generous size not only captures Sheffield's larger than life attitude, it acts as the perfect vehicle to deliver big-time flavor in droves. On the outside, a dark and enticing Habano wrapper hailing from the misty valleys of Ecuador. Just below this leaf, a generous array of Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers secured by a Honduran Jamastran binder. The end result is a cigar medium to full in body, greeting the senses with notes of coffee, black pepper, earth, and spicy-sweet nuances. A fine tribute to one of baseball's greats, HR 500 steps up the plate in grand fashion.
