Rocky Patel–The Edge Maduro

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Being a big Rocky whore, I am surprised I haven’t reviewed this cigar yet. I used to smoke them frequently. Rocky Patel sort of got me into premium cigars. They played a big part in it at least. I ran across this cigar at a local shop, and figured I should re-visit it. as always, I paired with water. Here we go…


Wrapper: Maduro

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Secret

Size: Battalion 6 x 60

Price: $6.65


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The dark wrapper had some minor flaws here and there… Some small water spots, a small tear in the wrapper leaf, but nothing that concerned me. Overall it looked nice. The wrapper had a barnyard odor, and the foot was sweet with mild spice. The cigar was pretty well packed, and bounced back when squeezed. The pre-light draw had slight resistance, and had a dark soily flavor.

The ash held for well over an inch, and the burn required several corrections.

The first third kicked things off with an earthy, grassy flavor. It didn’t take too long before I picked up a pretty strong dark coffee flavor. Through the nose, I could pick up woody and earthy notes along with an easy spice.

The second third had a dominant earthy and somewhat leathery flavor. Up next was that dark coffee I mentioned in the first third. As I got to the halfway point, a dry sweetness came into the picture. When passing smoke through the nose, the spice picked up a bit. There was a nice easy pepper as well.

In the last third, the sweet flavor picked up in strength. I can only compare it to cocoa. Up next was the mainstay flavors that have been here all along. Earthy leatheriness, along with dark coffee. The smoke feel became very thick and clung to the mouth and tongue well after exhaling. The pepper calmed down and was earthy.

This was a good medium to full bodied cigar. It was full bodied in a subtle way if that makes sense. Nothing was really in your face. The flavors just mingled around with each other nicely. I think any Rocky fan would like The Edge Maduro. This is definitely worth a try.
