Rocky Patel The Edge Missile
5 x 48 - Maduro - Box of 25
The Edge by Rocky Patel Missile cigars present a spicy new height in flavor in smaller full-bodied cigars. A masterpiece of a cigar blended with a potent, yet perfectly-balanced all-Ligero blend and a mouthwatering Maduro wrapper for the ultimate in complexity and aroma. (Not for beginners.)
Mediocre draw mixed with a simplistic flavor. I just wasn't very impressed with the Maduro wrapper yet I absolutely love the natural wrapper Edge!
I wasn't expecting this Missile to be very good as it is one of Rocky's cheapest. However I was surprised at the full flavor, even burn, and incredible finish. The smooth after taste reminded me of the smells of a stocked humidor. Very good!
I've been a fan of the Edge Toro for quite a while, so when these came up on Cigar Monster I jumped right on them. Unfortunately, they've been a let down. Compared to their bigger brothers, these "missiles" are bland and flavorless. I've had burn issues with more than a few of them. I'll finish what I have, but I wont buy any more of these.
Despite what my local tobacconist warned me about this cigar (said it wasn't advised for newbies), I do have to say it was worth every penny. I'll be buying plenty more to stock the humidor! Nice smoke, what more can you ask for? Try 5 and see for yourself.
