nat shermannat sherman host selection hampton


Now for my favorite part to report: the flavor.  The first third of the Gurkha Genghis Khan begins with some mild spice and sweetness.  The spice picks up just a bit in the second third and combines with creamy notes as well as earth.  The final third is earthy, spicy, and sweet.  This is a smooth cigar, just as advertised.

I’m not sure that I’d call the Gurkha Genghis Khan completely memorable, but I really have zero complaints about the cigar.  It delivered in terms of presentation, and its burn was satisfactory.  The flavor profile wasn’t totally complex, but the flavors that did appear were enjoyable.  If you’re a Gurkha lover or a cigar fan looking for something smooth, the Genghis Khan is a safe pick.  Again, just make sure that you can handle its size and have enough time to do so.  A single can be found discounted at around $8 each, and you can also find it in highly attractive chests of 30.

The Gurkha Genghis Khan earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Nat Sherman Host Selection Hampton

According to the official site of Nat Sherman cigars, the Host Selection was a person favorite of Nat Sherman himself.  It’s described as a mild, smooth cigar that’s the perfect pick-me-up in the morning.  Since I’m always looking for something new to try with my cup of coffee, it seems as if the Host Selection is just what the doctor ordered. 

The Nat Sherman Host Selection Hampton measures 7 x 50.  It’s one of seven offerings in the line, and as far as I can tell, it’s the biggest one available.  It has a filler and binder made up of Honduran tobacco, while the wrapper is of the Connecticut Shade variety.  As I mentioned in the intro, this is a smooth cigar, and it’s listed as mild/medium-bodied in strength.
