Rocky Patel The Edge Candela
Rocky Patel The Edge Candela is a cigar for those who want something different, fun, and delicious, all at the same time. Made in Nicaragua and brand new to the ever-growing Rocky Patel portfolio, The Edge Candela is one of the handful of Candela cigars currently available on today’s market. During the cigar boom, Candela cigars seemed a bit more plentiful, but the funky green wrapper leaf has since been phased out, so to speak. This is due not only to the lack of the Candela’s physical appeal but because the ultra-mild nature of the leaf made it tough to blend anything flavorful without ending up with a bitter, unbalanced mess. However, in recent years certain manufacturers have ventured outside their comfort zone and blended some very successful cigars using the odd wrapper leaf. Perhaps Rocky noticed this and thought “Whatever they can do, I can do better!” And that he did, in this case extending what is considered to be his most successful line of all time, The Edge, to include his first ever Candela cigar. The filler blend, although undisclosed by Rocky and company, is said to be identical to the other cigars in the Edge lineup, but combined with a Nicaraguan binder and this Habano seed Candela wrapper, the overall package is quite impressive.
