'94' rated; Gurkha's milestone blend.
Gurkha 125th Anniversary received an impressive #9 Cigar of 2013 with a '94' rating noting: "It has a lovely flavor of dried orange peel, some leather and cedar, and is a balanced smoke with no shortage of elegance". Celebrating 125 years is quite the accomplishment. When you think about it, not much of anything makes it that long, let alone a cigar brand. But Gurkha is still chuggin' strong thanks to a diverse portfolio of tip-top blends. And within the mighty Gurkha lineup, it would be difficult to crown only one as the best, but the Gurkha 125th is undoubtedly in the running. Dressed in a sleek and oily Brazilian Habano wrapper, you'll be fighting the urge to sink your teeth in. But that's just the appetizer, as the real meat to the meal lies beneath. A complex array of bold Dominican, Nicaraguan and Brazilian long-fillers unite to create a savory core. This recipe yields a medium to full-bodied profile as the cigar is smooth and balanced. Nuances march in one by one as rich tobacco, sweet spices, vanilla, coffee, and roasted nuts all make a welcomed cameo. Fun Fact - the stunning band won the 2012 Golden Label Printing Award. A fitting band for such an remarkable handmade.
