Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks review of the Rocky Patel Edge Nicaraguan in the toro size. I have only found this cigar in two sizes, a torpedo and a toro with both being 6×52. As you can guess it is a Nicaraguan puro and is the newest in the Edge line of cigars.
Sniffing away and I get a barnyard scent on the wrapper with not much scent at all on the foot. There is a hay taste on the cold draw. Head clipped nicely and gave a superb draw and with a bit of fire it lit up with ease.
Starting off this Rocky Patel Edge Nicaraguan and there is a leather taste with spice and wood. Giving a good retrohale delivers a very nice boost of pepper but nothing that will overwhelm the senses. A little ways in and the spice has died down a bit while the leather has taken over with a bit of the woody taste in the background. There is also just a hint of a cocoa.
Into the second half of this Rocky Patel Edge Nicaraguan and it is a very consistent cigar, which is the same as the rest of the Edge line. Getting more cocoa with the leather and wood and a spice at the back of the tongue with pepper on the retrohale. Getting towards the end and it is in the low full range but nothing overpowering at all. Flavors have stayed really consistent and nice.
Would I buy it again? yes. Flavors were very consistent and blended together nicely. Power hit the low full range but stayed in a decent arena to be handled by most cigars smokers.
I know the video and writeup weren’t super long but it was really a simple straight forward cigar with a consistent profile throughout.
