After a successful career making cigars by hand in Cuba, Hamlet Paredes has now made a name for himself working under Rocky Patel. So much so, in fact, that he has a cigar named after him. The Rocky Patel Hamlet 25th Year Robusto Habano is handmade in Nicaragua with Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers under a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that balances out the flavor perfectly delivering a medium body flavor profile.
This cigar was just horrible. I shared 2 of them with other friends how have different taste than mine. This was a cigar we could all agree was just dang horrible. During, right after, and especially in the morning after you have the stench, horrid taste and flavor embedded on your person. Honestly I have never said this about any cigar ever, but I wouldn't even share this with a person who knew nothing about cigars and asked me for one. It is the worst cigar I have ever smoked and I had hopes for this one, really wondering how it made a few top 10 list of 2018.
