Almost as good as the real thing
Although the burn isn't as good as the genuine they are a great deal. Perfect for the budget minded

Excellent smokes
I'm a huge fan of the actual edge Maduros and I couldn't tell a difference between the quality or flavor....

Not identical, but excellent, and a real steal!
I only had the "authentic", Honduran-made Edge Corojos a couple of times. Big plumes of mouthfilling smoke, even burn, milk-chocolate-colored, oily Corojo wrapper, spicy, earthy, oaky taste, with a touch of Vanilla bean. What are these like? See above! ...except the sweeter note took on a slightly-fruity character, kind of like dried figs, instead of vanilla bean. The pepperiness seems a tad more pronounced as well. So, are they EXACTLY like the Honduran Edge? Well, not quite. As the description says, being made at a different factory means a few differences in production methods, etc. But Tabacleras Fernandez (New World, Diesel, Ave Maria, Man-O-War, etc.) know their stuff when it comes to full-bodied, full-flavored cigars, and these smokes make that fact readily-apparent! Like all cigars I get in the mail, I promptly put this box in my humidor to condition them. Tried one after 2 weeks and experienced some burn issues. The one I am smoking now, after almost 4 weeks in my humidor, is thoroughly-enjoyable and every bit what I was hoping for! At this price, not only does it undercut the Honduran Edges, but also my current "go-to" Nicaraguan full-bodied cigar, Diesel Unlimited! If the rest of the box is even "mostly" as good as this second stick, then I'll be buying these for the foreseeable future! I would be excited to see more fruits from this Patel-Fernandez partnership, if such could occur.

Edge counterfeit corojo
I thought they were a very good choice if you want to save money. The only thing you don't get is a label !

Not what it's cracked up to be
The Counterfeits were excellent. The Gurkhas were terrible. They burned unevenly and poorly. Very disappointed. Not like CI at all.

Counterfeit? Not Close!
Not a bad cigar. Had a little bitter taste. As far as being an Edge, not even close. An Edge first thing in the morning will make you queasy to say the least. You can smoke these things all day long with no buzz. Would I buy again, NO.

Rocky Patel The Edge Counterfeits Toro Corojo
Didn't know what to expect when I ordered these and what a pleasant surprise they turned out to be. Plenty of flavor and very even draw. I'll be placing a re-order this week.

Great for half the price!
Some of them may not be as pretty and some are too tight or too loose but the taste is excellent. I doubt many would be able to tell a difference unless they were told. I highly recommend.

Awesome cigar for the price!
As good as the non-counterfeit? No, of course not. But at half the price, it's still a great cigar that I always keep a box of in my humidor. The construction is great, the flavor is rich, it definitely feels like a Rocky Patel cigar should feel. Every once in a while I get one that doesn't burn quite right, but it's rare, and not really an issue. When I give one to friends, they appreciate it as a premium cigar. A winner!

RP Edge Counterfeits
Great cigar. Full bodied. Good burn. Easy draw. Great value.
Customer Testimonials
I hesitated more times than I can count before taking the plunge to buy a box of the torpedo maduros and have zero regrets. I honestly cannot detect any difference between these and their more expensive Edge cousins. If you love the Edge, you will love these. Do not think twice and enjoy having the extra cash in your pocket.
Re visited the Edge Maduro Counterfeit after some humi time, they are fabulous, cocoa wood and caramel with a hint of pepper and leather. I'm happy I bought a box and will continue to rest them and smoke them. One of the smoothest maduros I've smoked lately. Despite all the new stuff out there.
RP Edge Maduro in toro, medium to full bodied. Easy draw with plenty of dense smoke output. Flavors of earth, dirt, wood, milk chocolate, nuts, n.leather.. semi long nutty leathery finish. Hints of spice and raisin. No construction issues. Aside from the no band and rough appearance awesome duplicate of the original. Less cream. Cheaper also. I rate a easy 90
Is this a life changing cigar, something you need to write home about just now? In a word, no. However, that doesn't diminish from its capabilities in any way. To dispense with its advertising campaign, it doesn't have an over the top power; it is certainly a strong cigar, but it doesn't have that cigar after a pint of liquor punch that a 5 Vegas Cask Strength does. What this cigar does have, is quality and appeal. It burns well, evenly, and with plenty of smoke. While it isn't instantaneously exciting, it is like a classic whiskey: everything you desire, expect, and love from a good cigar. If you want something new and interesting for a night or two, look elsewhere. If you want a classic, something consistent but good, then this is what you want.
Just picked up a box of Maduros and smoked one upon purchase decision I've made in a long time. The blend is wonderful; has a earthy sweetness with a smooth taste and an even burn. I REALLY LIKE THIS CIGAR !!!!!
Finally found the strength of my favorite MOW Ruination with an affordable price. I'll still keep my MOW's but this is my new every day cigar.
The Edge Counterfeit Maduro is a great smoke, but I expected more. I love the original Edge, but I actually thought I'd like these better (being that they're from Nicaragua). Even so, the price is right, and these are worth your time if you're a Maduro fan.
The RP Edge Maduro Torpedo is a long time personal fave of mine, as I lean toward fuller bodied's a simply gorgeous cigar as well... I'm tellin' ya guys these RP Counterfeits are a darn good smoke....The price is hard to beat, and the flavor and lots of bluish, gray smoke make me want to shake Rocky's (Patel...NOT Balboa) hand...This cigar is a definite two thumbs up!!
This cigar deserves its own name because it's Nicaraguan blend, and oily, spicy-smooth Nicaraguan wrapper is sweet and fragrant. Not a 2nd rate cigar whatsoever. The "real" Edge Maduro is a go-to for me... AFTER my stock of Edge "fakes" is depleted. Way underpriced, but don't tell Joe or Rocky I said that.
These are some fine smokes! All of the reviews are absolutely accurate. I just smoked one of the torpedo corojos right off the UPS truck and it was excellent. There was a little bite on the finish, but this will be cleared up with a few weeks in the humi. Rocky Patel is one the best blenders in the business, and has really impressed me with these fine full bodied gems.
WOW! This has got to be one of the best values in the cigar world (Rocky Patel The Edge 'Counterfeits')! Very close, if not exactly, like the original RP "The Edge". They have the blend down pat and it really doesn't matter where they're rolled. I just got my box in today and braved a muggy chilly evening to smoke the first one. It was worth it.
I too became an instant fan of The Edge, and as many of my friends know is it my go to stick (Rocky Patel The Edge 'Counterfeits'), so I grabbed 5 of these so called counterfeits, close in appearance and same great feel. As soon as I lit it I knew I was in Rockyville. For the price its a must to throw a few dozen in your humidor, I go back and forth between The Edge and these and they are so close that I wondering why I even spend the extra dough for the real deal. Thanks Rocky, as usual your keepin my wallet fatter each month!! long ashes
A buddy of mine tricked me with this, im a regular edge smoker , so were out at a construction site, and i said damn i didnt stock my 3 finger case this morning, so im about to put a wad of dip in, and he goes ,"wait a minute there big guy" he hands me what he says is an edge. looks like it ,feels like it, so light up, first thing i notice is the trademark power, but something was a little different, not as creamy to me as usual, but damn powerful, and still very good ,about half way through the creamy undertone kicks in and im cool. so later on he says its one of those edge counterfeits, so i come straight to the to see the price, i must say im wandering what the point is. i can get 20 edge for 80 dollars, thats only a 20 dollar savings, i cant justify buying these ,personally ill just pay the extra 20 for the edge, now a one day deal that knocks 15 or 20 of of these, ill be the first in line, but if your that strapped that the 20 dollar savings is paramount, i would have no problem vouching for these ,these are pretty close, and they passed that creamy test too ,if they do have a 1 day deal on these ,i would suggest buying 2 or 3 boxes and putting down for a year or two, i felt these were even more powerful than the real deal, and might need a little more aging. but ,once again ci shows why they cant be beat, when you can buy the real thing for 20 dollars more.[4- five packs of the torpedo corojo] [now you dont think rocky would slip the real things in here and call them fake would you] i wander.
Like i promised i'mmmmm back. The "R.P. EDGE Counterfeits".....Not as sleek as the original, but no so surprising, the flavor is right on. Some brands you can count on and R.P. is one of the best. If you want to save some coin..............GO FOR IT!
Holy cow, a good, tasty, FUERTE smoke. Rocky Patel The Edge 'Counterfeits' I liked the original Edge so much I found myself smoking them as my everyday smoke--thus putting a hole in my budget. Took a shot on these and came out a winnerr. Pretty sure I couldn't pass the Pepsi challenge between these and the original Edge. Be careful though--These are strong smokes. I thought I had built up my tolerance enough so that strong cigars wouldn't give me the buzz they used to--But these things knock me on my A$$ if I smoke 'em on an empty stomach. Stronger than the original, I'd bet.
The additional 10 free RP Connecticuts seduced me to try a box of Counterfeits, and I regretted it after completing the order. I am rejoicing after completing my first stick. What a relief and what a great smoke. Edge fans fear not. It doesn't look quite as stunning as the original, but my taste buds are perfectly satisfied. Same tight wrap. Same easy draw. Same billowing smoke. Same one hour plus to smoke it. Same fabulous flavor.
This is one of the best cigars Rocky Patel has produced. He may call it a Counterfeit, but it is an original in my book. If Rocky wants to counterfeit his own cigars sign me up.
If it's a Rocky Patel, counterfeit or not its worth a try. I'm on board. My order is next. I'll get back with the results soon. Thanks R.P. and C.I., one satisfied customer.
