|Wrapper||Ecuador Habano, Habano|
Gurkha makes so many cigars that its hard to keep them straight, but for a few reasons, this new entry stands out. I'm talking about Gurkha Epicure.
This Dominican-made, medium-bodied gem comes in only one vitola - a massive 6.5" x 58 gordo. The Dominican long-fillers are clad in a creamy-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, and the completed package delivers a long, cool smoke with an oaky, cedary character, some dark fruit sweetness and lively spices. You'd better not have plans for well over an hour when you spark up one of these bad boys. To make it even better, to help keep the cost down, Gurkha has foregone the fancy box and bundled them. So when you have the time to really kick back and relax with a flavorful, but not overpowering cigar, you can't do much better than Gurkha Epicure.
