Tasting Notes :
Though a bit firm on the draw, this dark cigar forms a flaky ash and burns cool with toasty flavors...

Prelight - The band is beautiful, and made me wish I was at the beach. The wrapper was a flawless, beautiful, medium-dark brown with distinct, but not heavy, veins.

They come in Zebra striped, metallic colored, gold, and chrome silver. Small, Medium, Large, and Extra-Large. Excellent ergonomics. They fold up and are extremely space-economical. They also serve purposes in the office.

my previous review is here:
As a follow up i...
Last night I smoked the first of a 5-pack of cohiba blacks that I got from the devil site. i had seen some mixed reviews on them in the past, but curiosity got the better of me and I had to order a 5-pack to try it out. at 300 bux a box, they're pretty pricey. Hell, for the 49 bux for the...
First off let me preface this review by saying that there are a lot of cigar manufacturers that would love to take a bite out of the RP Edge market share.
