Rocky Patel Factory Selects R80 cigars are a perfect offering for those who like tons of flavor with a smooth finish. Each cigar is blended using 5-year-aged Nicaraguan & Honduran ligero tobaccos to provide copious amounts of flavor, balanced out by an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper to smooth out the smoke and add a dimension of creaminess. Truly a masterpiece that we heavily discounted so you don't have to burn a hole in your pocket to get these premiums sticks. Pick yours up now!
I bought a 5 pack of these to fill out an order. I ve never smoked an Edge Light so I can t say if these are the same thing, but the R80s are a great smoke. Creamy, smooth, burned great. For the price they are a no brainer! I took one out on the golf course and didn t want to take it out during swings...00
I just got these, and they are very good. Never had a Rocky Patel before, and I will order more when I can.Smooth, burned well, no relighting and great til the end. Thanks Famous.10
I am a believer in factory seconds. I read another review saying these are Edge Lite seconds. I ve never had an edge lite, but they also taste very similar to my RP American market selection sticks. Draw and taste are excellent. I don t really know how to describe cigar tastes well, but these have plenty of flavor without being overpowering. Some have an uneven burn, but it s minor, small lighter repairs or wetting the edge of the cherry. As with all factory seconds, the consistency, construction and appearance are the closest thing these have to a downfall,and none of them are that bad. Every once in a while I ll have one with a big vein or a small split in the wrapper, which was s both an appearance and a construction problem, and those rare sticks are the ones that have mild burn issues. These aren t the sticks you want to pul out at the local cigar den but for an every day money saver, they are more than adequate. I haven t even aged any yet and I d have to say 12/15 of my first bundle were perfect sticks, and the other 3 were mildly flawed but still worth the 2 dollars I paid for them.10
I m a big Rocky Patel fan. My favorite cigar of his is the Edge Lite. When I saw these in the catalog and read the description I knew these must be Edge Lite factory selects. I ve smoked a bunch of these gems and they are indeed Edge Lite factory selects that didn t make the cut to be perfect. Maybe one in a bundle might not burn perfect but for the price I ll keep them in my humidor along with the Edge Lites that I love.00
