FrontRunners: Select Smoke

<< Back to Robb Report, May 2007

    The Rocky Patel Edge Missile Maduro is ideal for those instances when you crave a cigar but lack the time to smoke one. This cigar delivers all the delights of an hour-long Churchill in a fraction of the time. The Missile Maduro’s intense flavor (courtesy of a dark Costa Rican wrapper and powerful Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos) satisfies the palate in just 10 minutes of smoking. A relatively small, 5-inch cigar, it smokes hotter than a larger stick, but the smoothness of its blend compensates. The Missiles come in a distinctive, six-sided box that holds 25.
