Shortly after the conclusion of the IPCPR trade show and convention a representative from Rocky Patel informed halfwheel that the company’s collaborative project with football star Ray Lewis has been put “on hold.” No other reason was given for the move.

The Rocky Patel Legends 52 Ray Lewis made its debut at the 2013 IPCPR trade show and convention with Ray Lewis becoming the third sports start to get a cigar from Rocky Patel, joining Gary Sheffield and Bernie Parent.

I am an editor and co-founder of Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
