We Recommend: Rocky Patel The Edge Candela

 rocky-patel-the-edge-candela-toroRocky Patel The Edge Candela is a cigar for those who want something different, fun, and delicious, all at the same time. Any of the Edge cigars make good beginner sticks, but this one is indubitably ideal for those just getting their feet wet in the wonderful world of cigars. Mild, flavorful, and immensely pleasant, The Edge Candela is oddly satisfying, even to experienced connoisseurs.

Some Candela cigars are more of a bright, almost grassy green, but The Edge Candela is more low-key in appearance. The more pale, almost olive colored wrapper leaf gave it a sort of rustic appeal and combined with the simple Edge foot band, the presentation is gorgeous. SHOP NOW

Cigar & Irish Whiskey Pairings:

La Aroma de Cuba Cigars and Jameson Irish Whiskey


In what has become a classic Pepín signature, the sweetness of the Broadleaf and the spiciness of the Nicaraguan fillers create a great contrast of flavors including: sweet cocoa, hearty leathers, rich earth, deep pepper and a touch of caramel. While flavor is medium-full to full, strength and body are both medium-full. There's a reason why La Aroma de Cuba is one of Pepín's best-selling brands and why Cigar Aficionado awarded the New Blend a whopping 93 points.

Jameson Irish whiskey is full-bodied and rich, with flavours of oak, vanilla, and caramel. This popular Irish whiskey pairs well with many cigars, especially the La Aroma de Cuba. SHOP NOW

Camacho Connecticut Cigars and Redbreast Irish Whiskey

 camacho-cigars/camacho-connecticut The Camacho Connecticut cigar fits perfectly into the Camacho portfolio with big, bold flavors while at the same time toning down some of the legendary strength for which the brand is known. To pull off this feat, the cigar's filler is rolled from a perfectly blended and robust mix of Dominican Aleman Ligero and proprietary Honduran Generoso tobaccos punched up with a spicy Corojo binder before being tempered with the cool, creamy Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

Buttery and smooth from the outset, the smoke brings into harmony the tastes of hearty oak and mild cream. The midway point adds some crisp citrus and sweet cedar, the strength increasing to just enough above medium to further increase the enjoyment. As the cigar approaches the nub, some nuts and spices become evident for a truly lip-smacking finish. SHOP NOW
