Gurkha Master Select makes a tasty and triumphant return.
Gurkha cigars are known for their highly boutique nature. A lot of their cigars come and go, and then come back again. Case in point: Gurkha's Master Select. This ‘91' rated beauty has anchored the Gurkha brand for years at a hefty price point. Now, that pricing has been reduced, and the box has a shiny new makeover. The blend is still that same delicious mix we've all come to love.
Hand-rolled from top-notch long leaf tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras, Master Select produces ample smoke and a flavor similar to pre-embargo Cubans. A Dominican Habana 2000 wrapper graces the outside, creating a complexity filled with spice, pepper, and earth, but with a pleasant and lengthy finish.
I have no clue why this cigar was rated 91
Takes effort to pull smoke and feels empty from inside
I tried two and was not able to finish half, am not sure weather the cigar quality or it was delivered in this manner
