Review Notes: I'm smoking a Rocky Patel Edge Square Torpedo Maduro as I write this. It's an unbanded cigar. They come in a rough hewn dark wood box. The story given my tobacco shop owner is that they were made for a show and the palets were stuck in a corner for 3 years. And they were just discovered. I paid $5. It's a strong cigar, but well balanced, not harsh. The flavors come from the instant you light it lots of leather surrounded by some spice. It's well built. Long before the first round of ash falls free (at a little over 1") the spice fades. I had to touch it up once by the half way point. On the 2nd half it started to seem like a one dimensional smoke to me. Just more of the same. Not much of a finish. Became kind of a straight tobacco flavor. The ash continued to hold tight, light gray with some dark gray bands. Starting the home turn the cigar actually surprised me. About the time I was starting to think, "am I going to smoke this to the nub" it became noticably lighter (which was a pleasant change). I don't have the most refined palet, but it seemed to have some cedar and a touch of floral note. I touched it up again. There's plenty of nicotine kick in this puppy. You start to notice its effect near the end. I caught some more floral. Again, the finish is short. Construction was good and consistent throughout. It never got hot or bitter (which surprised me). It's a pretty interesting smoke. It's a bit strong to be a daily smoke for me, personally. Once you get to the 2nd half it doesn't naturally make you pay attention to it, you have to try a little bit to stay interested, but it's worth the effort. I would rate this a solid 7.5 out of 10 on flavor, consistency and construction, 9 for value at $5. If you like a bold smoke and you come across them I would recommend them.
