Cigar News: Hamlet 25th Year Salomon Shipping in Late October

Hamlet 25th Year Salomon Shipping in Late October



Bonita Springs, FL – Rocky Patel Premium Cigars (RPPC) is expanding the popular Hamlet 25th Year line with a Salomon size that will be hitting store shelves late this Month. 

The new vitola, on display at this summer’s IPCPR trade show, was crafted by renowned Cuban cigar blender and master roller, Hamlet Paredes. Hamlet 25th Year Salomon will join the brand’s Robusto, Toro and Sixty lineup that  debuted in Q3 of 2017. Based on its ongoing success. 

Paredes decided in the spring of 2018 to take that medium bodied cigar blend and roll it into a distinctive Cuban shape. The result is a 7 x 5/8 inch pointed figurado that swells to a maximum ring gauge of 58 at its bulb.  “The Salomon shape has always been my signature shape to roll ,” explained Paredes. “

I already have a Solomon for my Tabaquero cigar brand. And it’s always been very popular. So earlier this year, I rolled the 25th blend into the same shape.

Rocky smoked one, looked at it, and said ‘this is really good’. That’s where it began for this new Solomon. “As with the other medium- bodied Hamlet 25th Year sizes, the Salomon is rolled at Rocky Patel’s TaviCusa factory in Esteli Nicaragua.

It’s packaged in 10-boxes, and retails for $11.00. The Hamlet 25th Year brand honors Paredes’ quarter century achievements in the premium cigar industry, including his numerous years at the Partagas factory in Havana, Cuba. 

It was in Cuba that Hamlet honed his mastery of blending and rolling cigars “free hand,” which is the process of hand rolling a ready to smoke cigar from scratch, without molds or presses.  

Rocky Patel Premium Cigars is an artisan cigar and accessories brand headquartered in Bonita Springs, Florida, with manufacturing operations in Nicaragua and Honduras.

The company’s goal is to provide the everyday cigar enthusiast with a smoking experience befitting the luxury lifestyle for which Rocky Patel himself is known.
