Today we take a look at the Rocky Patel Edge Candela. This cigar is only available in a toro (6×52) and retails for $6.40.
Only 1,000 boxes were made.
Before blathering on and repeating so many things, here is the press release from The Rocky Patel Premium Cigar Company…
April 10, 2012 (Bonita Springs, Florida) The Rocky Patel Premium Cigar Company announced today the release of The Edge Candela.
The Edge Candela is a medium bodied cigar and the latest addition to The Edge line. The candela wrapper gives the blend a truly unique flavor, consisting of sweet spice and floral tea, ultimately lending a creamy finish.
The wrapper is a Habano Seed Candela, and the binder and fillers are a secret.
Says Rocky Patel of the new Edge Candela, “I blended the Limited Edition Edge Candela for The Edge fans – it still holds the flavor profile that is so beloved by Edge lovers every where, and the wrapper just gives it a distinctively spicy and creamy twist”.
The Edge Candela is available in Toro size (6 x 52) and is sold in boxes of 20. It is a limited edition product with only 1,000 boxes made by the El Paraiso factory in Honduras. The cigar retails for $6.40. Just released, it is now available at all fine retailers.
Located in Bonita Springs, Florida, the Rocky Patel Premium Cigar Company began producing high quality premium cigars in 1995, based on Rocky’s passion for cigars, and his desire to share his unique cigar blends with cigar connoisseurs around the world. Rocky is also very active in raising money for underprivileged children in Honduras, with his RP Foundation. Current Rocky Patel cigar brands include: Decade, Olde World Reserve, Edge, 15th Anniversary, the Vintage Series, Thunder, Xen and “50”.

As you can see, it has been a few months since its release so you should be able to find these now, if there are any left, or have already found them.
Not going to be a big write up as I lost my original one I wrote a few weeks ago when I recorded this review so I will summarize from my notes and let the video do more of the talking.
Starting off with some wood, pepper and assorted spices but the cigar seems to be mild but with very full flavor.
Maybe not even an inch in and the body picked up to a medium with tons of pepper.
Halfway I started to notice some nicotine, which is a little worrisome.
Woody taste really came through towards the end and stayed around a medium body.
Would I buy it again? I doubt it. It had way too much nicotine for me and made my stomach a bit upset, which really surprised me. I have smoked all the other Edge cigars and none have given me the “in your face” nicotine such as this candela did.
If you don’t mind nicotine in your cigars, give this one a try. Flavors were enjoyable and bold while holding around a medium body.

I love Candelas! I love the LFD Double Claro and I just ordered a 5 pack of fuentes. I really want to try the Illusione. So glad that they are starting to be more and more. What freaks me out is every time I smoke on the nicotine kicks my ass. Do you think there is more in this kind of wrapper?
I thought it was deja vu (“all over again”, as Yogi Berra said), but then I realized I saw this on Blip a few weeks ago – cheater! lol Good to finally see another review from you here, sans hairdrying.
The only candelas I’ve ever had were those old AyC Grenadiers many, many moons ago. I know a place here that has these, so I should pick one up.
Have not seen this one, but the LFD claro is the real deal!
