Rocky Patel’s Edge lines of cigars are some of his most affordable — but that doesn’t mean Rocky compromised on his renowned quality consistency and industry-leading smoothness. The Edge Maduro is no exception, with its firm, oily, chocolate-brown Habano maduro wrapper from Costa Rica and Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers aged for five years held together by a Nicaraguan binder producing clouds of salt-and-pepper smoke.
For the Honduran-made Edge Maduro, Rocky partnered with Central American tobacco grower Nestor Plasencia to produce a very strong, full-bodied cigar that offers a rich, woodsy tobacco flavor with notes of unsweetened and/or dark chocolate, cedar, earth, leather and a peppery-spicy-sweet finish.
Cigar Aficionado rated the Double Corona and Missile vitolas of the Edge Maduro 92 in 2020 and 2017, respectively.
Don’t let the low price fool you; the Edge Maduro is a superb, premium cigar with no shortage of fans who are pleased to sing the praises of Rocky Patel.
