⊗ Enjoy the gentler side of Edge cigars.
Many have fallen in love with Rocky’s original Edge, a full-throttle blend that combines an aggressive, full-bodied strength with perfectly balanced flavor. However, for most of us pedestrians this is not an everyday cigar. That’s why Edge Connecticut cigars were created.
Crafted for those seeking big-time flavor without the knockout punch, Edge Connecticut combines a robust blend of Honduran-grown ligero – the same tobaccos used for the original Edge cigar – inside a silky Connecticut shade wrapper that’s super smooth. This wrapper tames the beast inside, issuing a smoother, creamier blend but retaining the complex layers of flavor that made it so popular.
Good news! Rocky Patel The Edge Connecticut has earned a well-deserved 91-point rating, noting: “A sweet and spicy double corona with hints of citrus and a floral finish. The smoke is dense in texture and the cigar draws quite consistently.”
