Rocky Patel "the Edge" EMS

JR Alternative regular on 04/01/15

Have smoked a lot of JR Alternatives over the years. Generally a good cigar for the price. Often times difficult to match between the cigar's intended brand & the "Alternative", possibly a general blend missing some of the uniqueness of specific brand names. Though the Rocky Rocky Patel "The Edge" EMS was as close as any I have smoked for one third the price. For a reasonably priced cigar, they are hard to beat. Good for the daily routine smokes as I busy myself with other activities. Usually consistent in draw , construction & flavor. Occasionally a bundle fails to hold up the expectations - poorly rolled, won't stay lit, frustrating. But this is an exception, not the rule. Part of the challenge of looking for the $7 cigar for $2. Have smoked them for years, seem to taste better with a little extra aging . A consistently good everyday cigar compared to most competitors in this price range.

You wouldn't know the difference between JR's and the real thing.

Jr's once again makes a great smoke that if you didn't know it you would not be able to tell the difference between the JR's and the Edge at a fraction of the cost.

Truly great smoke

Quite good for a JR alt. Very full and clear flavors. Excellent smoke and wrapper look and feel. No real hangups. Outstanding value. Buy.

Great cigar for the price!!

Doyle B on 07/22/15

One out of every 10 seems "plugged". I have to push a long coat hanger through the cigar to get it to draw smoothly and evenly. Sometimes it will burn only on one side and I have to remove a very hard chuck of ?? and relight the cigar to get it to burn evenly.

JR Alternative Rocky Patel Edge Toro

MooseCigar on 08/10/15

A reasonably priced cigar ($2 a stick) that is very well constructed. This is my everyday smoke that won't break the bank. If you enjoy medium to full bodied cigars try a bundle today. Good construction, consistent flavor.

Always good value for the money!

Chinolargo on 08/13/15

Another excellent jr alternative! These are always great smokes for your money. They are very similar in taste to the real ones and good everyday smokes. I gave it a 3 for consistency because they don't always burn cleanly and sometimes can seem to be soft to the touch. Overall, can't go wrong on any of these!
