Hamlet Paredes on his transition from rolling Cuban cigars to creating his own line with Rocky Patel

Rocky Patel partnered up with renowned Cuban cigar roller Hamlet Jaime Paredes to create a new cigar. Hamlet has been working with Rocky at BURN, the Rocky Patel lounge in Naples, Florida, and has been a roller at two Cuban factories and been sent to conduct rolling demonstrations at a number of stores by Habanos, S.A., the Cuban cigar monopoly.

We spoke to Hamlet during the 2015 IPCPR trade show in New Orleans about the new product, Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes.
