Bdawg says:  Rocky Patel’s Edge (regular straight round) is one of my favorite go to cigars.  This “square version” is just ok.  The Edge Squared is a very soft cigar, as if they used less filler.  It smokes well.  It just doesn’t have the heft and feel that I am used to an an Edge cigar.  The wrapper is medium brown and nicely constructed.  The draw is easy producing a dark gray ash.  The flavor started as cedar, hot pepper flakes and light coffee, with a pleasant tang on the finish.  Unfortunately the flavor turned very harsh during the last third of the cigar.  I am convinced this is becasie of the soft lightly packed fillers.  The burn was surprisingly slow and even.
