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.

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.

Best alt I've ever had

JRGuy on 08/16/15

Best Alt I've ever smoked. Really surprising because the depth, flavor, and FULL BODY are all there. Very, very good. (Still an alt, though. Construction isn't superlative, finish is less than perfect. Sometimes spongy.) But this is a GREAT smoke.

Truly great smoke

greatJimmyR on 06/24/15

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

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

Cigarbear on 06/08/15

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.

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.

Good Value

Razordog on 11/27/15

A best buy for the money. Occasionally find a flawed stogie, but usually just fine.

Love a Good Smoke Try a Maduro

Lovin Life on 09/23/15

The Maduro is as close to the real thing as I can find. I have fell in love with the Rocky Patel line as I have been smoking for 10 plus years. As an everyday smoke can't beat it.

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!

Good Stick

RAuld on 02/12/16

A good every day cigar. The only problem I have found is the wrapper will unroll.

Rocky Patel Edge Toro · 6.25 × 52--nice alterative

Dan Jor Dan on 12/27/15

First time trying an alternative. Happy to say I was surprised with the quality. Excellent value, where else can you get 20 sticks for $40 and get something decent. I will try some other JR alternatives when I start getting low.
