ROCKY PATEL THE EDGE LITE
WRAPPER: Ecuador Connecticut BINDER: Nicaragua FILLER: Honduras/Nicaragua
How many times have you wished your favorite fuller bodied cigar came in a lighter version, so you could enjoy it anytime, not just after a hearty meal or drink? Well your prayers have been answered…The popular full-bodied Edge by Rocky Patel is now available in a lighter version. Although not as strong as the original Edge blend, these mild and mellow cigars deliver satisfying creamy-rich flavors. This cigar is perfect for both seasoned cigar smokers and those looking for a flavorful mild cigar.
Made in Rocky Patel’s factory in Honduras, Edge Lite utilizes a well-balanced blend of Honduran tobaccos, mostly ligero, wrapped with an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper. The combination creates a robust flavor that provides nuances of black pepper, coffee and nuts, and a complexity similar to the original Edge. The quality workmanship is what we’ve come to expect from a Rocky Patel cigar. It has an excellent draw and provides a nice volume of smoke with very little effort. The burn is even, carries a solid long ash, and does not require any relights at all. The seamless Connecticut wrapper brings a creamy smoothness to the blend, allowing for a mellow experience with ample flavor. Edge Lite is mild to almost medium-bodied, crisp and smooth, but delivers a ton of complex nuances that provide an enjoyable long lasting finish. So when you have the craving for the Robust flavors of an Edge, but not the strength--all you have to do is reach in your humidor and fire up an Edge Lite. They’re reasonably priced, so you can stock up now for those slightly mellow moments.
