It’s been five years since Hamlet Paredes, a renowned Cuban cigar roller, joined Rocky Patel Premium Cigars Inc. and now the fourth blend from the partnership is nearing debut.

The Hamlet 2020 is described as the company as a medium-bodied blend using an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Honduran broadleaf binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.

It will be offered in three sizes.

  • Hamlet 2020 Robusto (5 1/2 x 50) — $10.50 (Box of 20, $210)
  • Hamlet 2020 Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $11.50 (Box of 20, $230)
  • Hamlet 2020 Sixty (6 x 60) — $12.50 (Box of 20, $250)

The company says the cigars will begin shipping this month.
