Rocky Patel Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes Bala
Rocky Patel Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes Bala Natural
Hamlet Paredes of Rocky Patel was one of Cuba’s most sought after rollers, a lot of the time traveling internationally to do in-store rolling demonstrations. Rocky Patel helped Hamlet and his family escape Cuba to come to the US, and now Hamlet is releasing his first cigar for Rocky, Tabaquero Bala by Hamlet Paredes.
Hamlet had never touched non-Cuban tobacco before working for Rocky at his Burn Lounge in Naples, Florida, and was very excited about the potential for extracting flavor and richness from these new leaves. Tabaquero Bala comes draped in a San Andres wrapper concealing binders from Brazil and Mexico, and Nicaraguan long-filler. Medium-bodied, and containing Cuban-esque richness, flavors abound including spice, cocoa, coffee, pepper, earth, and subtle cream.
With all gold hidden beneath this sticks, the answer to the question of “to buy, or not to buy?” should be most obvious.
*Hamlet Paredes has received an impressive 90-rating by Cigar Aficionado*
