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.

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