Quick Smoke: Rocky Patel Edge Maduro Torpedo

8 Sep 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Early this year, when Patrick S. reviewed the Rocky Patel Edge Missile Corojo, the line was among the leaders in the strong cigar sweepstakes. Now, it seems Rocky’s cigar “for professional smokers only” has been passed by a number of others, such as Oliva’s Serie V and numerous Pepin blends. But that doesn’t mean the Edge isn’t worth considering.

I’ve smoked them off and on since they were introduced, both Corojo and Maduro. Recently, I picked up a Maduro Torpedo, a six inch by 52 ring gauge cigar, for about $6 and found it quite enjoyable. As before, the “warning” on the box struck me as a joke, and I wasn’t left “weak in the knees.” But it was a satisfying cigar, with enjoyable spices, thick smoke, and touches of nice maduro sweetness.

Verdict = Buy.
