The Edge full-bodied series may be geared to veteran cigar smokers, but the Edge Lite Series is an accessible cigar to those who prefer a milder Rocky Patel blend. This lighter version will also appeal to the smoker who enjoys the original Edge but seeks an anytime of the day smoke.

A mellow Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper provides the milder flavors of coffee and a nuance of black pepper that you will experience when smoking the Edge Lite Robusto. You will also notice creamy smooth notes of nuts with a hint of sweetness.  The Edge Lite pairs well with coffee, a light Tawny port, and most medium bodied ales. 

After re -reading my Chimay tasting notes with the full-strength Edge Battalion, I thought I would attempt to pair the Edge Lite with the Chimay Première Red Label. I think I made a very good choice. First, I started with a light snack of fromage and a chalice of Chimay Première. I took notes from Chimay and paired the ale with its partner cheese washed in Chimay Première. Chimay a la Premiere is made with fresh, creamy milk from the Chimay region. Notes of fruity apricots and peaches, enhanced by a hint of bitterness. Here are a few tips on cheese pairing.

An ideal cheese and beer tasting experience in 4 steps:

  1. Take a slow sip of your ale to enjoy its flavor.
  2. Next taste a piece of cheese without its rind.
  3. Try another piece of cheese, this time with its rind.
  4. Finally, take a generous mouthful of the ale to mix the two products in your mouth.
