This cigar has been taunting me for the last year and a half as it languished in my humidor. The Edge is a typical ‘strong’ Rocky Patel cigar, but the Lite version is designed for neophytes and those who prefer a smoother smoke. I enjoy strong sticks from time to time, but I invariably stray back to something milder for regular use.
I decided to smoke this little beauty today while on holidays in Alaska; I brought my trusty herf-a-dor and new colibri lighter along for the ride.
The Edge Lite is very nicely built; it feels solid and even. The Approx 5.5 – 6″ long 52 ring torpedo is like a long robusto, which makes for my ideal smoke lately, with my taste leaning towards the longer Churchills when time permits.
Prelight aroma is alfalfa and ammonia. Lighting thit vitola brought pleasant gray smoke. The Edge Lite is an easy smoke with an effortless draw the at time felt airy but not to the point of being irritating.I had to relight once due to high wind conditions, there was no bitterness at all. Ash was tight and dark gray.
Flavor is similar to a CAO Gold, just slightly stronger…Cream, coffee, and a mild peppery finish to remind you that this is indeed a good cigar.
I ordered a box last night from the boys at CI.
