Rocky Patel The Edge Missile Corojo
5 x 48 - Natural - 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 rich-tasting Corojo wrapper for the ultimate in complexity and aroma. (Not for beginners.)
Lousy Smoke with a bitter taste. Did not like this one at all. Bitter taste at first and continued through entire cigar. I expected much more from an Edge cigar.
This cigar was amazing, while the smoke was without flavor, it was extremely heavy in body. The cigar hit just as hard as a one from Habana. It's stronger than a Fuente Anejo by a hair, the burn was extremely consistant and a wonderful prelight draw and aroma. For the price, a very good slugger.
After sampling 4 of these highly rated sticks I can honestly say that I'm not very impressed. Rocky's cigars are usually better. They smelled good and tasted sweet before lighting them. They started out OK but after a few puffs they started to burn at a severe angle. I tried everything to try and get them to burn evenly with no luck. Each one burnt at about 60 degrees to the center line of the cigar for about 3/4 the legnth. All 4 burnt with the same 60 degree pattern. Maybe it was just the batch? I'll wait a while before I try another of these.
I absolutely love strong, peppery/sweet Ligero based sticks. This is one. Better than the overrated Gurkha X3 but not quite as refined as La Flor Dominicas Ligero/Double-Ligero series but still a keeper. This is the kind of cigar you save for after a Porterhouse Steak dinner or better yet, an uber-dark cup of coffee/espresso. Your head will swim, your toes will curl and you'll think about your next one. Definitely not for beginners or those who like "mild & mellow".
