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 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.0 0
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.0 0
I bought this cigar, based on the description. I am a fan of Rocky Patel Edge Lite, the description from Famous, matches the description of Edge Lite for the most part. So after smoking one of the R80,s, I think they are indeed Edge Lite. I got the same flavors, same good burn. I guess the old saying about, if it looks, walks, and sounds like a duck, it is a duck, or in this case, an Edge Lite. If you like Rocky Patel Edge Lite,s. this is the cigar to buy, at less than $3.00 a stick you can,t go wrong.1 0
