Last year, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars introduced a third blend by Hamlet Paredes known as the Hamlet Liberation. This year the company introduced two parejo shaped line extensions in the form of a Corona Gorda and a Robusto.
The Hamlet Liberation features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler. The Corona Gorda measures 5 5/8 x 46 while the Robusto measures 5 x 50. These two sizes join the 6 1/2 x 55 Toro with the tapered head introduced last year. Like the Toro, the Corona Gorda and Robusto feature a shagged footer.
One difference between the Corona Gorda and Robusto is they are presented in 20-count boxes while the Toro remains a 10-count box offering.
