⊗ Rocky Patel didn’t get where he is today without being a trendsetter. One particular trend that he helped set in motion was the creation of stronger, fuller-bodied cigars. Now, everywhere you turn, cigar makers are churning out powerful smokes, but Rocky has the distinction of being one of the first to take this trend to the “edge.” The Edge is one of the best-selling cigars due to its incredible flavor, but also its appeal to experienced cigar smokers. As the name suggests, the Edge is a strong cigar that fills the palate with spice and bold flavor while remaining smooth and enjoyable. The Edge is packed with robust “secret” fillers, and has a Nicaraguan binder and your choice of a Corojo or Maduro wrapper. These cigars aren’t for the faint of heart, but if you can handle it, you’ll be rewarded with an incredibly intense and flavorful smoking experience.
- The Rocky Patel Edge Toro Maduro cigar is the product of Rocky’s collaboration with Nestor Plasencia, the largest tobacco grower in Central America. Together, they combine their talents to create Edge, an earthy, wonderfully spicy cigar with a cedar base and tangy finish. Designed for seasoned smokers, Rocky Patel Edge employs a Cuban-seed, Honduran grown Maduro wrapper that provides a peppery flavor with a hint of sweetness. The long fillers are slowly aged for five full years. Medium to full bodied; this bold smoke is full of flavor yet is well balanced with notes of dark spice, espresso and a long full finish. The Edge line of cigars from Rocky Patel has garnered ratings as high as 91 from Cigar Aficionado.
⊗ A well-aged powerhouse from Rocky Patel and company.
⊗ The Edge Maduro by Rocky Patel cigars is waiting, so get your favorite chair ready. Comprised of a dazzling array of superior, aged premium tobaccos including ample Honduran Ligero and wrapped in a dark and oily Habano maduro leaf, Edge Maduro allows one to realize the combined blending and cigar-making skills of Rocky Patel and Nestor Plasencia. The Edge Maduro is no doubt one of the stronger cigars on the market. However, the power is controlled, the strength extraordinarily well-balanced, the flavor extremely smooth and super-rich – a feat for any blender crafting such a full-tilt blend.
⊗ The mature, crisp flavors coalesce at just the right moment, allowing you to gradually appreciate the complexity and strength of the cigar, as opposed to being simply overpowered by a potent blow to the palate. In the end, you’re left with a full-flavored blast of spicy, well rounded accents that will fully entertain the most veteran of palates.
⊗ Edge Maduro has received a well-deserved 92-rating, noting: “A mini torpedo with a strong earthy, salt-and-pepper smoke that also leaves notes of hickory and molasses on the palate.”
