rockyedgecorojo1 Welcome back to another edition of reviews on We have a pair of stogies today from two quality cigar makers: Rocky Patel and AVO. One selection provides plenty of strength, while the other tends to disappoint with its lack of flavor. Keep reading to find out how each of them fared.

Rocky Patel The Edge Corojo Toro

Rocky Patel is no stranger to producing highly-rated cigars, and his Edge Toro offering is just another successful release from the brand. Patel joined up with Nestor Plasencia to create the Edge line. I am unsure of the actual meaning behind the name, but it could do with the fact that the Edge was created as a cigar to really knock you off your feet with its boldness. In essence, you could say that this line has some “edge” to it, and could keep you on the “edge” of your seat as you smoke it.

The Edge Corojo Toro measures 6 x 52. The line comes in two other sizes: the 6 x 52 Torpedo and the 6 x 60 Battalion. It has a filler blend that is listed as “secret” on the website, although many claim that it is Nicaraguan. The filler is also said to be aged for five years. The binder is Nicaraguan as well, and a Honduran Cuban-Seed Corojo tops it all off. The Edge line also comes in a Maduro wrapper, if that is more your style. The Edge falls into the full-bodied category.

The Corojo Toro seems to be rough and it feels bumpy. There are some veins that are visible, and it has an oily sheen that comes out under the light. The Corojo wrapper is medium-brown, and not nearly as dark as the Maduro version. A thin band sits on the foot of the cigar. It is beige in color and shows the Rocky Patel brand name and The Edge line's label. Overall, the cigar is not much to look at, but it's on the inside that counts. It seems to be well-packed and is very firm to the touch. Before lighting, it has a tobacco scent and the cold taste is of earth.


After striking it with a match, the Edge Corojo Toro burns like a charm. There are no major issues to contend with, and this is a stick that you can enjoy without having to constantly babysit. The burn stays even on its own. Re-lights and touch-ups are non-existent. The draw is good, and solid white ash is produced.
