Rocky Patel’s iconic Edge lines are among his oldest, most popular and recognizable cigars. There are now no fewer than seven RP Edge cigars in the marketplace; the Corojo is one of the best-selling varieties. Top-notch construction, beautiful aesthetics, industry-leading smoothness and a relatively long burn time are just a few reasons for this, but it can’t be denied that the Corojo’s reasonable price point is also a factor.
The Corojo is a firm, medium-to-full-bodied “old-school” Honduran-made cigar comprised of a Cuban-seed Honduran wrapper, a “secret blend” of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers that have been aged five years and a dark Nicaraguan binder. It features a rich, aromatic bouquet; a savory, leathery, earthy tobacco flavor with notes of hickory and molasses, along with tart hints of marjoram, cinnamon and cocoa; and a sharp, spicy, long black-pepper finish.
Cigar Aficionado gave the Edge Corojo Double Corona vitola a 91 rating in 2019, proving that even a so-called “bargain” cigar can be refreshing, soothing and enjoyable. If you haven’t tried an RP Edge Corojo cigar yet, you owe it to yourself to see why they’re one of the best-selling smokes on the market, period.
