Rocky Patel Hamlet Tabaquero

"To be, or not to be, that is the question": that greatest of inquiries is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Hamlet. While we are not talking about a Shakespeare play in this case, it's an interesting thought nonetheless.

Rocky Patel was asked by a trusted friend in Europe to help Hamlet Paredes emigrate to the US and establish a name for himself. Being the trusting guy that he is, Rocky said he would help. He was aware that Hamlet was a Cuban Master of Tobacco and that he was one of the greatest rollers the island nation had ever seen. The stars were aligned, and the beginning of a beautiful partnership was born.

As Hamlet is not able to travel outside of the US yet (he's waiting on his green card), Rocky imported many varieties of tobacco for him to work with while creating his 1st non-Cuban cigar. The faith that Rocky Patel put into Hamlet's abilities is quite exceptional. Over 100 blends were created before a final version was selected, and it is spectacular.

Made at Rocky's TAVICUSA factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes is expertly crafted into 5 traditional Cuban-style sizes. Hamlet carefully selected Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and a double binder consisting of both Brazilian and Mexican leaves. The wrapper is a beautifully dark and oily San Andreas Maduro wrapper. It's a wonderful medium-to-full strength cigar that is completely unlike anything in the RP portfolio. This beautiful fusion of tobacco combine to create a wonderfully rich and complex smoke with flavors of earth, leather, coffee, and cocoa with hints of cream and pepper.

If this is an indication of what Rocky Patel and Hamlet Paredes are capable of, watch out cigar world, it's the dawning of a new day.
