Rocky Patel The Edge Corojo Short Cigar Review

Pre-Smoke: My only problem with Rocky Patel cigars is that their wrappers seem to want to unravel all the time and this wrapper looks no different. There are a few imperfections on the wrapper – some discolorations and an 1/8″ diameter hole a mere two inches from the cap. It has a couple of pronounced veins and the wrapper isn’t very oily. The wrapper feels like a late fall leaf; thick and smooth. I’m smoking the Toro 6″ x 52 vitola.

Smoke: From the first puff you know that this is an awesome cigar. At first you get hit with a ton of spicy flavors. Then, after an inch and an ashing, it settles down. Woody and meaty flavors. There is still a good helping of spice that is sticking around. What I really like about this cigar is that it is very flavorful.

After-Smoke: I took a walk after smoking this cigar to clear my head. While it is a medium-full bodied smoke it does have some strength to it. What I didn’t like about this cigar is that it mellowed too much for my tastes.

Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo Robusto – Cigar Review

Rocky Patel has done it again. This is a truly great cigar! Full of great flavors with a great draw. I am willing to burn my fingers a little bit to get as much out of this cigar as possible.

But there were some problems with this cigar. It didn’t burn evenly all the time and the flavors basically disappear for a little while. Yet, I still find myself thinking that this is one of the best cigars I have ever had and, when the cigar was going strong, it may have been one of my top five cigars.

This is a great cigar and any aficionado needs to give it a try. I am very glad that I did.
