Cigar Aficionado’s Hall of Fame – 2016
Rocky Patel was inducted into the Cigar Aficionado Hall of Fame.
“This is very humbling, everyone said that I couldn’t make it in the cigar industry because I wasn’t of Cuban or Latin descent. This is a very unique honor and I thank you, Marvin, for recognizing me and all my family.” – Rocky Patel
The most exclusive club in the cigar world now has three new members—and none of them expected it. Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado magazine, surprised the three newest members of the Cigar Aficionado Hall of Fame at the Night To Remember on Tuesday night in New York City.
