Rocky Patel Edge Habano

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

The Edge Habano is the latest installment in the Rocky Patel Edge line. I think this is the sixth variation in the series. Anyway…

I purchased the cigar being reviewed today. Originally, Patrick V. from Rocky Patel Cigars, sent me two samples of the Toro. Spoiler alert, I enjoyed them, and ended up smoking through my samples without thinking. So off to the store I went. I couldn’t find a toro locally, but no big deal. On to the review!


Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano

Binder & Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Torpedo 6 x 52

Price: $6.09


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper was chocolaty brown, with small to medium veins, and a toothy appearance. The wrapper had a cedary aroma, and the foot was earthy and leathery. There was a little squishiness when squeezing the cigar, but no construction flaws were found. The pre-light draw had slight resistance, with a dark coffee flavor.

The ash held for around an inch, and the burn didn’t require any correction.

The first third began with a familiar Nicaraguan zing. After about an inch, black coffee took center stage. Within a few puffs, I picked up notes of cocoa, earthiness, leather, and wood. The smoke feel became creamy and sweet, and the peppery zing died down a bit.

The second third kept the same flavors, but delivery changed from draw to draw. Some were creamy and sweet, while other draws were dominated by coffee and wood. Earthy and leathery notes lingered throughout, as did a pleasant, easy peppery zing. The aftertaste became sticky, and left a tingle on the lips.

The last third was pretty consistent, without a lot of changes between draws. Cocoa, wood, sweet spice, and a tingly aftertaste rounding things out. I had a hard time picking out earthiness and leather, but I think it was back there somewhere.

This was a good, even a very good, medium to full bodied cigar. I’d say it is my favorite out of the Edge line. The flavor profile was complex, refined, and took some nice turns. Construction was near perfect on every one I smoked. I think the asking price is well worth it. I’ll smoke more of these for sure.
