Puro Cubano. Tobacco done right.
Born and raised in Cuba, Hamlet Paredes is a name you need to become quickly acquainted with. Here’s the skinny: originally working in Habanos S.A. factories rolling Cuban cigars, Hamlet quickly moved up the ranks. Within years, Hamlet was travelling internationally, rolling custom shapes and sizes for some Europe’s top shops, and rolling cigars “free hand” – without molds or presses.
Today, now that he’s stateside, Hamlet has joined the Rocky Patel family and crafted high-end blends like Tabaquero, Liberation, and the cigar at hand today: Puro Cubano. Wrapped in a seamless Ecuadorian Habano leaf, with a PA Broadleaf binder and choice Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers, Puro Cubano delivers an effortlessly smooth draw and flawless burn. Flavors of natural sweetness, slight creamy notes, and a toasty finish meld together beautifully into a cigar that could only have been crafted by a true master of tobacco.
