The Rocky Patel name alone promises a good cigar, so even more is expected when you throw a name like Hamlet Paredes into the mix. In an incredible team effort, Paredes and Patel have worked together to blend Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes. The cigar was launched at the 2015 IPCPR and has been quite impressive.
Hamlet Paredes has been working in the cigar business for almost 20 years. Although his most recent work was as an ambassador for Habanos cigars, he has also worked at famous factories (Partagas and Romeo y Julieta. His cigar rolling cigars are very impressive- he’s done many cigar-rolling demonstrations.
Paredes exclusively worked with Cuban tobacco until Rocky Patel took an interest in his talents. Giving him an opportunity to work with non-Cuban tobacco for the first time, Patel hired Paredes to create a new cigar blend. That’s how Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes cigars were born.
The cigar has Brazilian and Mexican binders and a Nicaraguan filler. It’s all bound in a San Andres wrapper from Mexico. The resulting cigar is medium-bodied and very flavorful. Although there’s no Cuban tobacco, it has the same complex notes found in most Cuban blends.
