The Rocky Patel Edge Battalion Maduro cigar is the product of Rocky's collaboration with Nestor Plasencia, the largest tobacco grower in Central America. Together, they combine their talents to create Edge, an earthy, wonderfully spicy cigar with a cedar base and tangy finish. Designed for seasoned smokers, Rocky Patel Edge employs a Cuban-seed, Honduran grown Maduro wrapper that provides a peppery flavor with a hint of sweetness. The long fillers are slowly aged for five full years. Medium to full bodied; this bold smoke is full of flavor yet is well balanced with notes of dark spice, espresso and a long full finish. The Edge line of cigars from Rocky Patel has garnered ratings as high as 91 from Cigar Aficionado.
Thought cuz it was a RP that it would be great. Very dissatisfied. Never recommend.

A friend used to rave about RP's "Edge" smokes... he cut way back on his cigars, as he's now in his late 60's, and he's had some health issues, but he will have a smoke with me on occasion. He really did sing loudly over the "Edges", so I thought I would give 'em a shot. I chose this big-ring smoke in preferred Maduro, and I purchased a 5-pack. I've smoked two, gave one to a different friend, so I have two left. I do like the flavor of this cigar... bold, yet not too strong. Really tasted good with a single-malt scotch. I was with my friend when he smoked his RP Edge, he also liked the flavor, and he is a big Maduro fan like me. Problem with the three smokes thus far is they burned very unevenly and had to be relit several times. I witnessed my buddy going through this aggravation. Cannot understand what causes a cigar to do this, but three times thus far with these Battalion Gordos the burn has been frustrating. I will eventually get around to smoking the remaining two that I have, but I'm sure I won't be buying this RP again.
