Rocky Patel advertises the Edge Candela as a smooth cigar, and it certainly delivers in that respect. I would not call it too complex, but it is consistent and satisftying. The cigar begins with an interesting mix of sweet, creamy, and cedar notes in the first third. The second third features more creaminess and sweetness, along with flavorful nuts. The final third continues the creamy theme and finishes off with earth and mild spice. This is definitely a mild stick all the way.

Rocky Patel’s strong reputation gets another boost with the Edge Candela. The cigar exhibited excellent construction, burn qualities, and a nice mix of smoothness and flavor. I would recommend it to Rocky Patel fans, beginners, or anyone looking to give a Candela-wrapper cigar a try. Its mild nature makes it a solid choice as a morning cigar with your cup of coffee. A single sells for around $6 to $7 each, and it also comes in boxes of 20. With only 1,000 boxes produced, you will have to act fast before the supply runs out if you want to light one up for yourself.

The Rocky Patel Edge Candela Toro earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Sosa Family Selection Maduro Churchill


If you are unfamiliar with Sosa Cigars, you are probably not alone. The brand is made by Antillian Cigars and its history goes back to the 1920’s when it was founded by Don Juan Sosa in Cuba. The company eventually shifted its operations to the Dominican Republic and Miami in the 1960’s, and it continues today under the Antillian umbrella. Sosa Cigars still holds a family touch to its selections thanks to master blender Juan B. Sosa. The Sosa Family Selection was released in 2011, and it will be the focus of this review.

The Sosa Family Selection Maduro Churchill measures 7 x 48. Other sizes in the line include the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 52 Toro, 6 ½ x 56 Gran Toro, and the 6 x 60 Double Magnum. The cigar’s components are a secret, other than the fact that it has a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. The cigar also comes in a Natural version that sports an Ecuadorian Colorado Connecticut wrapper. As far as strength is concerned, Sosa lists the Family Selection Maduro as medium-bodied.
