Cigar Aficionado Top 25 of 2015 – #7, #6
Today we look at the next round in Cigar Aficionados Top 25 Cigars of the Year. Every Day for the next week, cigar lovers will be on the “edge” of their seats to see who places in the top of this illustrious list. So far, Ashton, Drew Estate, and the Cuban Bolivar have been named in the top 10. Lets see who came in at numbers 6 and 7.
7.) Rocky Patel Edge Habano Torpedo –The original Edge by Rocky Patel was one of his first big successes. They were simple, band less, affordable, and delicious. Rocky has now expanded his line by introducing the first Edge to use entirely Nicaraguan tobacco, the Edge Habano. It is a bold and flavorful smoke, using a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. Its vintage Nicaraguan long filler and binder give it notes of spice, wood, and leather. This rustic looking beauty burns perfectly in this figurado size. This 6×52 was given a 94 rating.
6.) Illusione Ultra OP. NO. 9- The Ultra is by far the strongest blend crafted by Illusione owner Dion Giolito. This robusto sized powerhouse is bursting with flavor. It is a Nicaraguan puro, making it very spicy. It has a terrific rich, nutty, aftertaste. This was one of the first Illusiones produced in their Nicaraguan location, while his original lines were all made in Honduras. This 5 ½ by 56 was given a 94 rating.
