“A few nights ago I went out on the patio with a few fingers of apres dinner brandy and an Edge (Edge by Rocky Patel). It was clear and crisp and the stars were putting on a show. A beautiful Louisiana evening. Man, that cigar was good! Nubbed it for sure. Great draw and clouds of delicious smoke all the way down to the end. Right place, right time... Man life is good.”
“Here's one of those cigars that I get in samplers, and it sits there for a while before I say 'alright, let's do this!' If I tried it sooner, there'd already be a lot more of these in my humidor. I don't know about all the warning hype it gets - 'may manifest a third testicle,' and so on - but it is full on flavor, and rich in smoke. On the other hand, it has some of the smoother characteristics that I really enjoy in a medium cigar. I think, contrary to people saying 'this is not for rookies,' that this is actually a GREAT full cigar for rookies, because you can enjoy some real cigar flavors without feeling as though you ate an ashtray sandwich.”
“Been smoking these for years (Rocky Patel The Edge), they will NOT weaken the knees with power but will sure make your taste buds dance the jig..without a doubt the best bang for your buck on the market, Rocky's been a great guy at any event Ive been to and you can see why he cherishes the Edge line so much.....his passion for the industry is all placed in this one cigar,,,if you try the corojo and find that its not for you please forward the rest of your stogies to Westford Mass,,,they will surely not go to waste P.S. I have pictures to prove that I have smoked an entire toro without ashing one time,,,a challenge to all,,,to be honest it not that difficult with this cigar........~long ashes, Mike~”
“I tried both the regular and light versions(Edge by Rocky Patel) and loved them both. I prefer the light so I can still drive or operate heavy machinery while smoking it but they are both spectacular.
The light was extremely smooth and tasty and surprisingly did not leave an after taste. The smoke bellowed to the point where I had a hard time seeing anything in front of me.
“Just finished my second RP Edge, great cigar!!!! The burn was even and required no
touch ups. The draw was perfect, and CI has great prices I just put the RP Edge on
auto order every month. Overall, great full body cigar, and has good aroma, down to
“One of my favorite cigars. (Rocky Patel 'The Edge') It takes no thought to taste the flavors. The flavors of this cigar are the most accessible of any cigar I have smoked. Sweet, spicy, woody, and rich, without having to concentrate. The understated label plays down the rumble of flavor you are about to experience. I have had some issues on a few with the wrapper burning uneven, but it could easily be as much my fault as theirs.”
“So i decided to taste what all the hype was about. The "Edge By R.P.", yeah it's strong but that's NOT the story. The story lies in the flavors, coffee, wood, pepper, oh so pronounced. Strong, flavorfull and your head and belly also get in the mix. WOW! I even worked up a sweat. OK boys time to get your chest hairs on, Try it, talk about hairy....i feel like the Wolf Man....AHHHHHHHHH WOOOOOOOO, later.”
“Picked up a 5 pack of the Edge by Rocky Patel.
My first experience with a Rocky Patel cigar. I have only one word to describe it - Outstanding.
A full bodied cigar with excellent construction and flavor. Mouthfulls of smoke with each enjoyable draw. Needless to say I will soon be ordering more of these extraordinary cigars in the near future. Thanks again to CI for introducing me to yet another fine smoking experience
“These have become the main stay of my humidor.
smoked savored appreciated and shared with friends every chance i get. I think i have 125 left better get some cash together soon. Buying them by the chest has been a real savings. But WOW now I am buying the seconds and the mistakes and oh my lord what a cigar at what an amazing deal. Thanks so much for the introduction. HMMMMMMM where is my clipper its after 8am.”
“Very good smoke! Smoked one a few weeks ago and enjoyed it. Now just finished one and went ahead and lit up another one! Little sweet, little spicy. Excellent. One of my favorites now!”
“The Rocky Patel Edge maduro is an INTENSE cigar. The flavor and spice just boggled my mind...a kick-in-your-rear type of cigar. It lets you know it is not one to be taken lightly. Highly recommended! One of the best maduros you'll probably ever sample.”
“I smoked one of these (Rocky Patel The Edge) that a friend gave to me. I LOVE IT! You must try this one. It has a wonderful peppery taste with just a little hint of leather, nuts and coffee. This cigar is well made and burns very even, and draws smooth. I will be buying some of my own very soon.”
“Edge Corojo...what can i say, its a legend. Never fails to satisfy and has a permanent place in my humidor. Edge Maduro..strong enough to shut up anyone who thinks no cigar is strong enough! Both are great and worth trying!”
“For a continuous smooth smoke time after time, (Rocky Patel The Edge) is the way to go. Read all the other reviews, we can't all be wrong. Rocky's got a very good thing going in all his cigars, next to the Estate family these are by far my favorite.”
“I love this cigar (Edge by Rocky Patel). It's affordable, pleasureable and complex. The power that this thing packs doesnt affect me too much as I'm used to smoking a La Flor Dominica Ligero most of the time, however my friends certainly feel it. I think that this cigar is wonderful and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good full bodied smoke. Also, and my friends and I have timed this; if you get the toro size it can last you up to 2 hrs and 45mins! so make sure you have pleanty of time.”
“I smoked a (Edge by Rocky Patel) Corojo Toro and enjoyed it very much. Excellent draw, slow only very slightly uneven burn and a heavy body with excellent flavour. I didn't find the strength overwhelming, but then I lean towards fairly full-bodied cigars. This one I'll buy; Mr. Patel is one of the top blenders, in my view.”
“It's difficult to fault the skills of Mr. Patel and Mr. Placsencia...an excellent cigar (Rocky Patel The Edge). She's certainly powerful, but not at all harsh. Beautifully made, long, firm ash and a dead-even burn. This one is a favourite.”
“Been smoking the Edge (Toro Corojo) since they used to come without a band on them. I have found it to be the best everyday cigar around. Every time I get a box of something different, I wish I had just purchased more Edges. Great cigar, Rocky! Keep 'em coming.”
“Damn, what a fine cigar ! There is noting more to say.”
“The beauty in this stick that is smokes of sticks many times the cost. A nice find for a daily stick. Dark, rich, oily wrappers and spicy tasty of smooth boldness in every draw make the Edge a fav in my humidor. It only gets better as you draw down on it to is fiesty finish. Great stick.
My Rate: 88”
“So I had a RP Sun Grown in my hand and decided to go with an Edge by Rocky P for an after dinner smoke. What a way to spend a Friday night. The smoke was wonderful from start to finish. The burn was even and I found the taste even, and consistant as my mind began to get a bit fuzzy. I soon found myself pinching the last of the smoke, but it did not get hot at all. I put the butt down and decided to just sit back and relax with a full stomach and the taste still with me. I gotta quit trying these excellent samplers RP Full tilt, because now I can no longer settle. Great stick!!!!!”
“I tried Rocky Patel's Edge for the first time a couple of months ago and I must say these cigars are the best that I have smoked, I prefer the light and I am extremely happy with the flavor of these cigars at a very reasonable price!!”
“Initially I was "afraid" of this cigar because of all the hype of how strong this cigar was (Edge by Rocky Patel) . But after trying it I must say that for being a full bodied smoke it is incredibly smooth. This is a cigar that is great for all occasions and while it is without doubt a full bodied smoke i have found even beginners enjoy the flavor and taste of this cigar. The construction, burn, and draw on this (and all RP's) is amazing.”
“I met with a cigar club last night. The host brought Baccarat Churchills.
They were good, mild, easy draw, sweet cap - nice cigar. Normally I don't smoke two cigars back to back (only if they are smaller), but the guys indicated they were going for a second round. As we sat on the covered porch, the Good Lord lit up the sky with His shock and awe, natural fireworks of thunder and incredible lightning. Not the time to run to the car, so I pulled out the Edge Corojo toro that I had brought ... man was that great ... how can I describe it ... deep, complex, smooth, beautiful construction, nice draw, powerful but not overwhelming ... almost a toffee caramel underlying taste (not heavy or too sweet) ... a suggestion of that. I have to say this is one of the better smokes that I have had in a good while. Bravo, Rocky & Nestor. And thanks, Lord, for the show and the much needed rain.”
“What can i say about this brand? Rocky is the man. The Edge is the most refined,well balanced, and flavorful cigar on the market. I do not know how he comes up with great new cigars every year but i am glad that he does. I do not know if The Edge has been rated yet but i would give it a 94 or 95 rating. The Edge should be a classic.”
“ive read reviews here on this site about the RP The Edge. i went down to a local smoke shop and grabbed one and i was amazed. it kept its slow and even burn and tasted delicious. i think ive found the perfect cigar.”
“The Edge Maduro is my 2nd favorite cigar (behind the Cohiba). It's a dark, strong, complex smoke that lasts and lasts. Even my friends who prefer milds say these are great. If the cost has been holding you back, try them in a sampler or wait for a discounted deal. You won't be sorry.”
“I grabbed this cigar out of my humidor ready for a cigar that would sit me down (Rocky Patel The Edge). When i took the first draw, i was greatly taken back. This full-tilt cigar was smooth right off the bat. Maybe it was the shape of the cigar (I had a torpedo) but this masterpiece of a cigar was a silky smooth crescendo into flavor I haven't seen in a cigar before. The draw was perfect--and i strongly suggest this cigar to anyone who wants perfection.”
“I like to describe this cigar as the most "professional" cigar in my humidor. It is so well made!... The construction, draw, burn, and flavor are collectively flawless. I always look forward to smoking this truly amazing cigar.”
“Rocky Patel Edge Corojo, What can I say? Absolutely the best cigar value period.
You wouldn't think a 4 buck stick could outclass ones costing 4 times as much but it can and does. You can see the oils glistening around the perfect burn line every time. Perfect draw, clouds of smoke, a very consistent stick. If I had the humidor space, I'd get them by the 100 count chest I go through them so fast!”
“ah ,senor patel, you crafty devil you. i have finally found it, "the perfect cigar" the [edge torpedo corojo] this bad boy is quite simply everything i like in a cigar,a very earthy core , lots of spice,and tons of compexity.but the thing that seals the deal is this undertone of light cream and vanilla. i kid you not , i have only smoked a few cuban cigars in my life , but this thing reminded of them . my 90 year old neighbor smoked one with me . he commented several times how rich this cigar was, i could tell by his look of contentment, this was a winner. this fella was born in havana in 1918 , left in 1958 , and came to ohio in the 70s and ran a pizzaria , of all things , weve been smokin cigars together ,once a week for 3 years. im in my late 30s , and i have learned more about enjoying my life from him than anyone. his thoughts of the good ole days back home , and his remarks about the quality of pre castro cigars ,and how they were indeed the best , even better than todays cubans, but as we have discovered in the last 3 years , todays blenders away from cuba are creating a new golden age of cigars,the [don pepin garcia cuban classic] the [camacho slr maduro ]and the [gurkha triple ligero], rating very high on his and my list , but the edge is in the stratusphere , perfect construction, perfect burn and perfect balance, and no more full in body than camacho or pepin garcia . the finish is long and smooth and slightly carmely .this cigar is never harsh , powerful yes , but smooth as silk. this thing has gotten pretty good reviews, rocky has had a few rate higher. but this cigar alone makes rocky king of cigars in my book. richard petty, elvis, and rocky patel . the edge lives!!!”
“The Edge Missile is my all time favorite cigar. I don't know how they get it so perfect. The flavors are so plentiful and so rich and smooth. Every single cigar burns evenly and always has the perfect draw. I wouldn't recommend for rookie smokers, since it is a bit on the stronger side. But always a a delicious and full flavor cigar”
“I recently started smoking these beauties Rocky Patel The Edge and have absolutly fallen head over heels for them, dare I say they have quickly become my new favorite. I mean wow! From the first draw all the way to the nub I can't get enough.”
“I have come to really like the edge battalion cigars in the maduro and corojo. I like the flavor they put out when smoking and the aroma along with the consistency. This cigar is upcoming and on its way to my favorites list and house in my humidor. Ci also has the best prices on there cigars..”
“I'm a maduro lover, but love The(Rocky Patel The Edge) , and fell in love with it as a "change of pace" milder smoke. So, I had very high hopes for the maduro Edge. Well, It lived up to many of my expectations; it's a beautifully crafted cigar, with a perfect burn, and draw, but as far as maduros go, it wouldn't make my top 5. Too many beauties out there. But, on a lighter note, try The Edge Lite... it's excellent!
“I'm somewhat of a rookie to cigars in that I started enjoying them while on a tour in Iraq last year, although I have tried a few real cubans and can tell the difference between quality cigars vs. a certain rugged brand that comes in a foil pack. I keep my humidor packed with plenty of my go-to sticks...RP Vintage 1990s. I've been reluctant to try many other cigars because I've been hooked on the Vintage 90' and you can never go wrong with what's already proven to be good. Nonetheless, based on the quality of a few various RP blends I've tried, I decided to get a RP sampler pack to expand my experience. It's been sitting in my humidor for about 2-3 weeks, and after watching several cigars reviews on other websites I decided yesterday's 18-hole golf game would be the perfect place to test drive The Edge in the Corojo wrapper. I have nothing but good things to say. It truly was a great cigar. Started out nice and toasty...not too strong...a little too peppery to blow through the nostrils (for me at least), but rich, smooth flavor that was all-around delicious. My golf game sucked, but The Edge was a winner no doubt. Thanks RP for another great blend!”
“Rocky Patel doesn't mess around when it comes to full bodied. I seldom unearth a cigar that has so much to offer the discriminating palate. It's heavy, yet smooth. It's exerts strength while being balanced. Leather, spice, pepper, wood, earth all mixed to a complexity you seldom find right from the B & M. I'm gonna buy a bunch and set them aside to see where they take me.”
“The Edge. The First Cigar I Really Loved. Period.”
“Picked up a RP-The Edge Battalion size(6x60) at a local smoke shop, then I let it sit in my humi for 3 months before enjoying. I finally smoked it recently and all I can say "wonderful". Great draw/burn, slightly sweet with a smooth taste. I started to get a little lightheaded towards the nub, but nothing that would've made me stop smoking this glorious creation. I will be buying these again.”
“I just tried one of The Edge Maduros I picked up at my local cigar shop.
Oh MY ! I am not usually a full bodied cigar smoker but have one occasionally, opting for more medium bodied smokes in general, but I think I am going to be now:) This cigar rocks .I will just have to learn not to stand up quickly after smokin these down to the nub. Ordering some as soon as I have room in the humi.”
“My wife surprised me with a couple of the Edge Torpedo's in the Corojo wrapper. This was actually the first time I was ever exposed to the Corojo wrapper and I must say WOW what a stick, this is probably one of the most well constructed cigars I've seen in a while. This cigar had some of the most beautiful complex flavors without being harsh or nasty in the slightest bit. It started off with the pre toasting aroma that will make your mouth water, after toasting and the first few puffs its almost as if you have a mouthful of warm, buttery, toast. about 2 inches in I literally thought my wife had sprayed Fabreze, because I started getting this faint floral aroma and the flavor changed to this wonderful bouquet of flavors all complex but never overpowering. The cigar held it's ash for well over 2 inches before I bumped it off and burned evenly all the way to the fingers. This cigar is a home run all the way, Rocky and Nestor, Thank You for opening my eyes to cigar flavors which I have never experienced in my 18 years of cigar smoking. I will be ordering some of these from C.I. as soon as I make room in my humi.”
“Tried an Edge maduro a few nights ago. One of the most amazing cigars I've smoked so far. I only recommend this cigar to someone who has tried and enjoyed a few other heavy-hitters, because this one will knock you on your butt. I love strong cigars, and this is about as strong as they come.”
“Man! These babies are right up there at the top. Ya'll boyz best gettya some theze rite now. I really mean it, these are excellent; perfect construction, draw, flavor, etc. They are beautiful to just look at even if you never torch it.”
“I was both disappointed and satisfied with this cigar. My disappointment was in the strength, since it was far less than I was expecting.... However, the Edge is far from being a smoke for Pro's only, it is for anyone who loves the taste of good tobacao. Having said this, the Edge is a great cigar with a smooth flavor that most would like. The burn time was a little faster than I like, but wouldn't prevent me from smoking them. The Diesel is more intense in full body than the Edge, but both are great cigars. The Edge doesn't smoke as even as the Diesel, and I had to use my lighter several times to even it up. Even so, it is worth the purchase of a 5 pack to judge the cigar for yourself.”
“Really pretty cigar that burns well. After that observation, I'd say it is just barely smokeable. I did not like the flavor of this blend in a cigar. It tastes almost like perique pipe tobacco to me, but with a metallic aftertaste. I like most RP's I've had, especially the Decade. That thing deserves it's 95, but a 90 is not the edge.”
“This is a fine cigar, and the strength is held in check by the smoothness of the smoke. While having to apply the lighter here and there to keep it even, it's nothing that really bothered me. In fact, it has been my eperience that any RP is a good cigar, but all of them have a problem staying even. The edge is a great cigar to try a 5 pack, then decide if this smoke is for you.”
“The Edge Maduro is an everyday flavor powerhouse for $5. I like most of RP's line as he is CONSISTENT! (In logic, a consistent theory is one that does not contain a contradiction) 93.”
“The first time i bought one it was good. and i took the advice of the box. Yesterday, however i got a lil full of myself and attempted to do it standing...whoa. not good. but at the same time soooooo good. it was like getting hit with a 500 ton demon and begging for more.”
“Still a beginner, and just starting to tell the good from the bad... Rocky Patel "The Edge" = GREAT!”
“Well I just had the maduro torpedo great draw, good flavor but I don't think they could have colored the wrapper any darker. The brown color was coming off on my fingers and lips. Come on, rocky maduros don't have to look like a struck match”
“Alot of my work associates swear by rockys, so I tried the Edge which was in the top 25 of 2011 in cigar journal. I had a hard time getting the Toro going, so I cut off the burn, opened it up with the draw poker and relit. The flavors gradually came out with a better draw. I feel this cigar needs to sit in the humidor for a while. Overall a well constructed corojo with sweet notes on the medium side. Definite aromas of tea as described in cigar journal.”
“I received a couple of the RP Edge in a CI sampler. Placed in humi for a few days and couldn't resist trying one. I agree with the other reviewers: It was great. Very satisfying, beautifully constructed, and for its rated strength completely smokeable without harshness. I am new to cigars and have CI to thank for enabling me to explore and experience great cigars and yet not totally go bankrupt. I smoked it down to almost the end and was slightly light headed but very satisfied!!”
“Just had my first rocky patel edge. Good smoke nice flavor burns evenly. I recommend it for a once a week cigar, maybe more.”
“Great construction, burn and draw. Beware though this stick is STRONG. Even regular smokers will be knocked back in their chair after smoking one.”
“I try the robusto size the Edge by rocky Patel , what a great smoke.Very smooth , great flavor, little spice with some sweet too. One of the best cigars I smoke in 2013. Thanks to C I for the great deals, and thank you to Rocky Patel to share with all cigar smokers. Who needs Cuban cigars when we got rocky Patel.”
“Been meaning to try one of these for quite some time and finally got around to it this morning. Well made cigar with a good maduro smell to it. It lit right up with no problems. Really solid, strong maduro taste right off the bat. I wouldn't say exceptional taste like some, but definitively a good maduro for sure. It was burning nice and even with a great draw...lots of smoke, but about half way through I hit a few rough patches. With some careful touch ups I was able to keep smoking along. Very enjoyable cigar, not my favorite, but I would smoke one again. It's not what you would call a "complex" stick, the flavor stays pretty much the same throughout, but it's a good flavor.”
“The epitome of a quality cigar...packed with flavor and a chewy maduro wrapper...my favorite smoke by far...solid construction!”
“This is a real powerhouse of a cigar...if you want to take a little off the "EDGE" try dry boxing it for a couple of days...and enjoy. It really does make a difference....DAMN GOOD CIGAR!!!!”
“I've been smoking the Toro Maduro Edge (6 x 52) cigars for years and they've been a basic staple in my humidor for all occasions. Last night, on a clear, cool evening and accompanied by some Glenfiddich 15 year scotch, I enjoyed my first Battalion Maduro - 6 x 60. For anyone who has enjoyed the smaller stock and not this, you are in for a treat! This dark, oily, veiny, chewy gem was absolutely amazing! And it cannot be compared to the Toro I had been previously married to. Both wonderful; however, if you'd like to sink your teeth into a new experience, then you have to go BIG. This delicious and extremely well-constructed beauty burned evenly and cool at all times delivering luxurious, creamy mouthfuls of luscious, thick smoke that hovered in the still evening, further enhancing my pleasure. Hints of leather, oak, spice and earth combine to create a perfect, dynamic, and extremely complex palate. And while this cigar is definitely a medium to full body, it pleases the palate with flavor without overpowering it like some full-bodied cigars that taste as if you might be smoking a campfire. And I have to admit ... as I was sinking into its spell, I found myself looking upon it and admiring it with what can only be described as "romantic eyes." For I had, in fact, fallen in love! And while it's not appropriate to discuss such things in public, I must say that this masterpiece aroused my spirit. Definitely going for the box! Take my word and share my joy! Peace!!”
“I have smoked many cigars from many places. All sizes, wrappers, binders, fillers what have you. I have become a Rocky Patel convert and all out junky! My wife and I frequent cigar bars and smoke shops up and down the East Coast. Whenever I get in one I always go for an Edge Battalion if they have them. It feels great in my hand, flawless construction, even burn, smooth draw and flavors so sumptuous I cannot resist this cigar. It goes with premium coffees, cognac, scotch or a nice aged port. I am always delighted with the experience, it's like talking with an old friend! It's the one cigar I never want to go without in my humidors. Rocky is the bomb and CI makes the pleasure affordable and frequent. Thank you again and again guys! you've got a customer for life!”
“Rocky Patel Edge Corojo Toro is a medium bodied smoke. Dominant flavors are creamy tobacco, leather, cashew with hints of vanilla/white chocolate. Long Cream leather finish that coats your pallet. Perfect construction with plenty smoke output with a cool burn to the nub. Overall I rate a 91, in agreement with Cigar Aficionados
