|Shapes||Double Robusto, Perfecto|
Gurkha has made so many elite cigars that it's hard to keep track. So when we heard about Gurkha Chairman's Select, we were intrigued from the word go.
This superb new entry comes in four different sizes, all perfectos with a pigtail cap. They're dressed in a gorgeous, deep brown Criollo '98 wrapper laid over a complex blend of vintage Dominican long-fillers, some of which have more than 15 years on them. These well-made Dominican cigars deliver a cascade of flavors including leather, sweet wood and spices and pepper, with a long, easy burn that's super-sharp. Considering the quality and flavor of these premium handmades, the price is surprisingly reasonable, too.
