Review Notes: This was my first Gurkha cigar and i came away totally impressed. Appearance showed a rustic, toothy dark and oily wrapper whick looked like a dark chocolate candy bar. Had a solid, heavy feel with a slight moist sponginess. Pre-light aroma was that of rich fermented leathery dark tobacco. Upon lighting the cigar imediately produced a copious amount of aromatic smoke. Burn was consistent throughout the first 2/3rd's but needed a few re-lights and touch-ups for the last 1/3rd. May be due to the fact that I was smoking it outside on a humid Florida night. Flavors were full and rich but not overtly strong. Reminded me of the 5 Vegas A Series cigars, lots of deep, dark chocolate, espresso, figs, molasses against a background of cedar and spices. I found the flavor of the leaf on the tongue and lips to be slightly bitter, but the smoke itself was smooth and velvety. Took this baby right down to the delicious nub and it remained smooth, tasty and cool. Enjoyed this with a Unibroue rois Pistoles Strong Belgian Ale and a Norht Coast Old Stock Barley Wine. Extremely enjoyable!!
