Review Notes: This is my favorite cigar yet I've never did a review on it even though I'm pushing 70 reviews on this site. Anyhow, theres two types of smokers that I've noticed in my short smoking career. The guys who actually go for taste and don't give a flying "eff who's name is on the label. The others are the guys who declare Fuente the best simply because thats what the sheep in their management hierarchy at the office says. Oh and the price has to be $15+ per smoke. Their humidor is like an ad for CA magazine....Fuente, Padron, Hansotia, Huppman, etc. Idiots. This cigar line if for the former. Guys like Rocky Patel, Christian Eiroa, Jon Drew, etc are guys who have the guts to take chances and not be satisfied just selling to sheep who buy on snob appeal. They make flavorful, tasty and unique cigars at a reasonable price. The Edge is one of those. its an extremely flavorful cigar that, to me, is the epitome of what a Corojo/Ligero based smoke should be. No fancy labels, no fancy packaging (it actually comes in a rough hewn tri-corner box) and a great price. The little 5x48 Missle is the perfect size. Its has just enough balance so you can taste both the filler/binder and wrapper in equal measures. "Smooth & Mellow" is not part of this cigars M.O. . It's a strong little ass-kicker for those who like their cigars intense. They're good OTT but even a months sleep does wonders for The Edge. Simply put, if you like dark sweet tobacco with a sharp kick on the finish then this is your best bet by far.
