gurkhasedpic1 Two solid brands are being represented in today’s reviews. We will kick things off with the Gurkha Seduction Robusto and wrap them up with the Alec Bradley Medici Cosimo.

Gurkha Seduction Robusto

I have burned through several Gurkha cigars in the past, and most of the experiences have been solid. With that being said, I decided to pick up the Gurkha Seduction. Not only did I find the name to be intriguing, but its composition of tobaccos from three distinct countries also caught my eye. Let’s see how the Robusto offering from this line with a sexy name fared.

The Gurkha Seduction Robusto measures 5 x 55, making a bit chunky when compared to some more traditional Robusto cigars you may be accustomed to. Other sizes in the line include the 6 x 55 Toro, 6 x 60 XO, and the 7 x 55 Churchill. The cigar features a filler that consists of Colombian tobacco. The binder is of the Dominican Olor variety, and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper tops things off. In terms of strength, Gurkha lists the Seduction as being medium-bodied.

Like most Gurkha cigars, the Seduction has an attractive appearance thanks to its large decorative band near the head. The band features the Gurkha logo and name, as well as the Seduction moniker in ornate font. The gold, red, and burnt orange color scheme blend in nicely with the cigar’s overall look. The Seduction has a dark brown wrapper that is oily and carries a marbled appearance. There are a few veins throughout the body and some tooth. The cigar is firm and does not have any soft spots. The pre-light aroma is sweet. The cold taste, on the other hand, is earthy.

After striking the Gurkha Seduction Robusto with my lighter, it lights with ease. The burn does seem to stray a bit but manages to correct itself without the need for any touch-ups. The ash is solid and light gray in color. There’s a plentiful volume of smoke that is produced during the slow burn. I have no complaints about the draw, as it seems to be just right.
