|Wrapper||Ecuador Connecticut, Ecuador Habano|
Gurkha is known for a lot of things - humongous selection, creative blending, fancy packaging, and more. But with all that, sometimes they can be a little pricey. Kaizad Hansotia toned down the glitz for Gurkha Aged Cabinet, so what you get are great cigars using well-aged tobaccos at a good price.
To help keep the costs down, Gurkha Aged Cabinet are only offered in one size - a 5.0" x 50 robusto, with your choice of a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade, or a tawny Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. But he didn't skimp on the long-fillers, including some vintage 2001 leaf to add smooth creaminess. The Connecticut is leathery and woody, with some nutty notes and a peppery finish, while the Habano is more cedary, spicy, and has hints of dark fruit. This is one time you can get a top-shelf cigar that won't break the bank.
