rockyedge1 Today’s pair of reviews will cover two cigar made to cater to fans of smooth, medium-bodied smokes. Keep reading to find out if the Rocky Patel Edge Candela Toro and the Sosa Family Selection Maduro Churchill are worthy of a purchase.

Rocky Patel Edge Candela Toro

Rocky Patel decided to bank off the success of his original Edge line by releasing the Edge Candela. The cigar is characterized by its unique wrapper and the fact that it is extremely limited, with only 1,000 boxes slated for distribution. I am quite the rookie when it comes to Candela cigars, so I am looking forward to seeing what type of experience this Toro has to offer.

The Edge Candela Toro measures 6 x 52. It is the only size in the Candela line. Details on the Edge Candela’s filler and binder are unavailable. What we do know, however, is that it has a Honduran Habano Seed Candela wrapper that has been aged for five years. The Edge Candela is supposedly a smooth cigar that is listed as being mild to medium-bodied.

The Rocky Patel Edge Candela may not be the fanciest looking cigar I’ve seen, but it does appear to have solid overall construction. The wrapper has a greenish tint to it and has a few oils that are visible on the surface. There are a few minor veins and some tooth, but no major imperfections. The cigar feels firm to the touch and has no soft spots. The cigar comes with a single decorative band at the foot that has a cream color and showcases the Rocky Patel Edge name and logo. Prior to lighting, there’s a sweet aroma that hints towards the cigar’s smoothness. The cold taste, on the other hand, is earthy.

The solid appearance of the Edge Candela Toro translates into a very nice burn. The cigar stays even on its own from start to finish without the help of my lighter. Only one touch-up is needed. The ash is solid and gray in color. There’s also plenty of thick smoke that is produced.
