Rocky Patel The Edge Lite Torpedo
6 x 52 - Natural - Single
Rocky Patel Edge Lite Torpedo cigars have a robust blend of high-priming, 5-year-aged Nicaraguan & Honduran ligero tobaccos tamed by a mild Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. These medium-bodied cigars are rich, creamy, perfectly-balanced, and brimming with earthy, complex flavors. Great aroma, too!
I purchased this 5 pack and the first one I smoked was rough. It was allot more bitter then I remembered it from my first edge lite long ago. SO, I left the other four in the humidor for about 3 months with the cellophane off and I tried another just last night and WOW what a difference! It was smooth, light, and leathery. If you not a fan of bitter smokes, I recommend to anyone to let them sit unwrapped in their humidor for at least 3 months before smoking. Trust me...
Long burn, as the previous reviewer noted, but only average taste. The Edge Lite is mild, to be sure, but too mild -- I really couldn't taste any distinguishing flavor or body behind an otherwise flat tobacco taste.
Based on the reviews of other customers, I expected this cigar to be a great smoke. Lit it up and just wasn't nearly as pleased. Bad taste, poor construction and veins all over the wrapper. Yet it had great burn and great consistency. I think maybe I just had a bad stick.
