altWelcome back to yet another pair of reviews on Puff.com for this lovely Wednesday.  The Gurkha Ghost and the Kinky Friedman Kinkycristo are set to be put under the microscope today, so let’s see if they pass the test.

Gurkha Ghost Angel

Just by looking at its name, it’s no real surprise that the Gurkha Ghost was a cigar released specifically for Halloween.  It made its way onto the market for the holiday last year and was marketed and presented with that typical Gurkha flair that the company is known for.  Highly-rated and described as smooth and flavorful, the Ghost caught my attention, so I decided to pick up one of its Angel selections and give it a try for this review.  Will it live up to my expectations, or will it be a bust?  There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to light it up.

The Gurkha Ghost Angel measures 6 x 52.  It is one of four sizes available in the line.  The other three include the 5 x 52 Shadow, 6 x 54 Asura, and the 6 x 60 Exorcist.  The Angel comes in a Torpedo shape and an attractive tube.  As for the cigar’s composition, it begins with a filler blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos.  An aged Criollo ’98 binder comes next, and a Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper completes the cigar.  As I already mentioned, the Ghost is considered to be a smooth cigar, putting it in the medium-bodied range of strength.

As is usually the case with Gurkha cigars, the Ghost is one good looking stick with excellent presentation.  The tube that the Angel comes in looks great with its silver and black color scheme.  The black and silver holographic band near the head displays the Gurkha Ghost name and the company logo.  The band is very large with intricate graphics and will definitely catch some looks from across the room.  The wrapper is quite dark and has a nice oily sheen.  The cigar is mostly smooth in nature with a few medium-sized veins that are visible.  As I give the Ghost Angle a feel, I find zero soft spots.  The pre-light aroma is sweet with a bit of cocoa, while the cold taste is earthy.

The Gurkha Ghost Angel lights with ease and exhibits a draw that is just right.  There’s a large volume of thick smoke as well.  The burn requires no touch-ups or re-lights whatsoever, which is always a major plus.  The gray ash is long.  Overall burn time is around 90 minutes.
