Rocky Patel-The Edge Lite

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

While searching for a morning cigar in the humidor, I came across today’s review. This cigar has been buried in my humidor for at least two years. I haven’t smoked one of these in awhile, so I stuck with water instead of coffee for this mornings review of The Rocky Patel Edge Lite.


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua & Honduras

Size: Toro 6×52

Price: Around $5.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The golden Connecticut wrapper was a bit toothy (bumpy) and veiny, but still looked good. Squeezing the length of the cigar revealed no soft spots, just a consistent squish that bounced back after being pinched. Sniffing the wrapper and foot, I only noticed slight natural tobacco and woody odors. The pre-light draw was perfect, offering slight resistance and it had woody flavors.

The burn was perfect, requiring no touch-ups. The ash held for well over an inch. The cigar practically smoked itself, offering tons of pillowy smoke.



As soon as I lit up, I was greeted with a smoke feel that was ultra smooth. Silky smooth even. Definite woody flavors were noticed, mixed with with a very slight pepper. The flavor became buttery and creamy towards the end of the first third.


The second third maintained woody flavors with a little nuttiness. When passing the smoke through the nose, I found the pepper increased in strength slightly. The smoke feel remained thick, creamy and smooth. However, the flavors were crisp and toasty. All the while, subtle buttery notes lingered.


The last third became more creamy, buttery and toasty then the previous thirds. All the while, I still got peppery notes when retro-haling. The smoke became even more plentiful then before – thick and pillowy. Pepper remained but smoothed out even more. Very nice.



This was a very good mild to medium cigar. It went well in the morning and would go great with coffee. The price isn’t too bad either. If you are into milder Connecticut wrapped cigars, this one is a must try.
