Cuban Master of Tobacco
Paredes became one of the more prominent rollers in Cuba, known for his custom rolls. He spent times as the in-store roller at two factories in Cuba: Briones Montoto, the old Romeo y Julieta factory, and more recently the La Casa del Habano at the old Partagas factory. He also traveled the world, visiting shops, rolling cigars, making friends and practicing his English.
Since January, Paredes has been in the U.S. starting his new life, including working on his new cigar, Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes. "It was interesting to see his eyes, because he had never touched non-Cuban tobacco," said Rocky Patel. "He had no idea what it would do, it was like a kid in a candy store."
In the end, Paredes made "about 100 blends" according to Rocky Patel. Oddly enough, the one everyone liked and the one entering production was actually the first blend he developed in the U.S. It uses a Mexican San Andres wrapper, binders from Brazil and Mexico and fillers from Nicaragua. It's made at Tabacalera Villa Cuba S.A. (TAVICUSA), the factory co-owned by Patel and Amilcar Perez Castro. Patel describes it as more medium and "very different than all the cigars we make."
Developed by Cuban Master of Tobacco Hamlet Paredes, this cigar is an exciting addition to the Patel Family. Featuring a robust San Andres wrapper with filler from Nicaragua and binders from Brazil and Mexico, this masterfully-crafted blend is a unique experience for any aficionado. The Tabaquero comes in a few traditional, as well as a few rare sizes hand-picked by Hamlet Paredes. This cigar is the closest a smoker can get to a fusion of Cuban craftsmanship and Nicaraguan ingenuity.
