Liberate yourself from ho-hum tobaccos
For the last few years, Rocky Patel has been working with the Cuban mastermind Hamlet Paredes to blend some of his most successful lines… and a trilogy of releases bearing Hamlet’s name. Today, the third cigar from Paredes lands at the sunny shores of CI, and this one’s destined for greatness. Say hello to Liberation by Hamlet Paredes.
Though it’s fun to have options in sizing, I have a soft spot for single-size releases, like today’s blend of choice. Liberation is a simple release: one perfectly crafted 6.5”x55 vitola in a box of 10. The reason for this specificity? Rigorous quality control. This cigar was blended to be enjoyed in this size only, and each cigar receives a ton of care and attention along the entire pre-production and production process. The unfinished shaggy foot delivers a ton of earthiness, before the cigar kicks up to a medium to full-bodied profile of earth and roasted coffee.
