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.)
SMOKED A MISSLE MADURO THIS MORNING FOR MY FIRST TIME AT MY LOCAL CIGAR LOUNGE. THE PRESENTATION STOOD OUT IN THE VAST SELECTION OF FINE SMOKE. AFTER CHOOSING THE EDGE I WAS POURED A NICE HOT CUP OF BLACK COFFEE INTO A LUXURIUS COFFEE MUG THE LOUNGE PROVIDED. AS I SEATED IN THIS WHOLE ENVIROMENT WAS SET AND I WAS KIND GETTING BUILT UP. I SIPPED MY BEAN A FEW TIMES AS I LOOKED OVER THE ROLLING ON THIS STICK , THE COLOR AND TEXTURE OF THE WRAPPER, IT WAS NICELY OILED LEAF WAS PERFECT NOT A SPOT NOT TO VEINY. THE LABEL ON THE FOOT IS A CLASS ACT LOOKS LOVELY, CICAR FELT DURABLE AND WELL ROLLED AS I GENTLY FELT THE DENSITY... SO I SIPPED AGAIN ASS I TORCHED THE END IN A CIRCULAR MOTION GETTING A EVEN BURN THEN A FEW LIGHT BLOWS TO TO REMOVE ANY LOOSE ASH THEN AT THIS POINT THE CIGAR WAS PUT INTO MY MOUTH THE FIRST FEW PUFFS WERE NICE AND THICK BOLD,LOOKED AT THE END AND THE BURNING WAS VERY EVEN. THEN I SAT DOWN GOT COZZY AND HIT THE BEAN AND THEN STARTED TAKING IN SOME SLOW PATIENT DRAWS ALWAYS CARFUL NOT TO HEAT UP THE CIGAR, AFTER ABOUT 10 MINUTES AND A HALF CUP OF COFFEE I REALIZED THIS IS THE BEST FIVE DOLLAR CIGAR POUND FOR POUND...THE TAST WAS SWEET, SPICY,INFUSED WITH TOP SHELF CHOCLATE TASTE, MILD EARTHY KINDA WOODSY DIRTY TASTE NOT TOO MUCH THOUGH ADDS MAJOR CHARACTER A MUST IN A DARK SMOKE..I DO HAVE TO SAY THIS SMOKE WAS AWESOME WITH A HOT CUP OF GOOD FRESH GROUND COFFE BLACK NO CREAM, AND SERVE THE COFFEE IN A NICE DISH WITH THIS CIGAR AND YOU WILL BE IN A MELTING CREAMY SMOKING HEAVEN...SO TWO CUPS OF COFFEE DOWN AND A GOOD 45 MINUTES LATER ITS AT ABOUT 1/4 AND THIS GUYS STILL SMOKING SMOOTH TASTE IS MUCH BOLDER IN A GOOD WAY SO SWEET THIS IS A NICE CIGAR FOR 5 BUCKS SMOKES LIKE A 15 DOLLAR SMOKE. REMEMBER TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS GUY DONT HEAT IT UP, COMPLEMENT IT WITH A GOOD DRINK ANT JUST RELAX DONT OVER THINK IT JUST LET THE CIGAR DO THE WORK.....
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 love the Edge Torpedo but sometimes I don't have an hour or more to sit and enjoy one. I found this and for a half hour to 45 minute smoke it was perfect. Felt like I was smoking the regular Edge that I love with all the spices and kick. I will definately stock these as well as the Torpedo's in my humidor. Thanks Rocky.
This was a very nice ride. A powerful ride but really really nice one. The stick looks like a round chocolate bar, smooth dark and it glistens with oils. When you lite her up all your senses are tuned into this little dynamo. It is strong, but there are sooo many layers to be explored. I can't say it really mellowed any through the smoke, it more ebbed and flowed with constant enjoyable flavors! If you like full bodied, this is a MUST try, you owe it to yourself.
