THE EDGE Robusto cigars are rolled to a slightly wider ring gauge, giving these full-bodied cigars an 'edge' over traditional robustos in flavor. The extra-dark Costa Rican wrappers cap a blend of 5-year-aged Nicaraguan & Honduran tobaccos for a super-smooth and well-balanced smoke. Order some now.
I always make sure to have a stock of these Maduros in my humidor. Mild coffee and sweet chocolate flavors in the first third, taste gets stronger and more spicy/peppery as you go. Never had burn issues and the draw is perfect for me. I dont think it's traditional but I love these with a nice red wine (prefably a late harvest Zin). The sweetness of the wine and the flavors of the cigar are delicious.
Great flavor, Great burn, Great Pull, just an all around Great cigar. May be a bit much for rookies, Medium full to Full bodied.
I have enjoyed this cigar with Sam Adams Boston Lager and with Hudson Manhattan Rye Whiskey. Its flavor holds up very well to both. Its appearance is good. Well constructed, a bit tighter packed than the Cuban Blend, and a bit stronger. The smoke gets a little hot when drawing too much, but that s with most any cigar. It s one to sit back and spend time enjoying it over an hour or so, while relaxing. Burn was consistent and even. As said earlier, the draw was a tight enough to not burn too fast, not not so tight that you could get any smoke from it. It had a slight burn on the back of the tongue, but the after-taste is good and the overall smell of the smoke it nice! I ll definitely get them again!
