Rocky Patel Cigars recently announced that a new and exciting project is in the works with famous hockey player, Bernie Parent. Rocky Patel and Bernie Parent will start the production of the new BSB #1 Bernie Parent cigar, a stogie that will be exclusively prepared by Rocky Patel.
Bernie Parent expressed his excitement on the project through a public post on his blog saying: “Being a cigar enthusiast, I am delighted and honored to have built a relationship with Rocky Patel and company, and to be part of this process every step of the way.”
BSB#1 Bernie Parent cigars are a medium to full bodied blend and were developed by Mish Patel himself. These stogies are comprised of an Ecuadorian Havana seed wrapper and are packaged in an orange and black cigar box, colors dedicated to the hockey legend. These commemorative cigars boast a unique band around the cigar that are in the shape of goalie pads.
Bernie Parent is a retired professional hockey player who played with the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs and is considered to be one of the finest goaltenders. Parent was in the NHL from 1964 to 1979 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame back in 1984.
BSB #1 cigars will be available starting next week. Parent will be in Newtown, PA on December 10th for a special event for fans. The event is an opportunity for fans to come out and meet Parent as well as try his new cigar.
Rocky Patel also recently launched the Rocky Patel HR 500, which commemorates Major League Baseball player Gary Sheffield. It looks like we can expect more novelty cigars like these from Rocky Patel in the future.
