Gurkha Black Beauty Cigars
Gurkha Black Beauty
It’s 5:30 on a Tuesday afternoon and El Jefe comes walking into the bullpen and tells us that he’s decided to move our Gurkha Black Beauty e-mail promotion to tomorrow morning for some crazy reason and he needs a product description right away. The problem is our copy writer was told he had until tomorrow at lunch time to finish it and he’s already gone for the day. So, me being the Cigar Ninja that I am bite the bullet and grab a cigar that I would probably never smoke and head out to the “employee smoking area” to smoke it for a quick review.
The verdict: this is a stick that I would pick up and smoke time and time again, especially at this price point! It is generously sized and heavy in my hand because it’s packed full of Nicaraguan long-fillers all held together by a Dominican Cibao Valley Cuban-seed binder. Building on the success they found with Beauty Gurkha created a richer, darker, offering of it, by instead adding an extra-aged gritty Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that combines toasted earthy notes with creamy sweet finishing notes punctuated by hints of freshly roasted coffee beans. Chocolate, is of course present as one would expect with the presence of a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
I’d describe this as a medium to medium-full in regards to flavor yet definitely not more than medium in strength with Liga Privada-like smoke output. These are an absolute steal at our price and one that has turned me into a Gurkha convert. – Cigar Ninja
