Gurkha Vintage Shaggy

Hmm....I wonder why it’s called Shaggy.

If you were guessing the Gurkha Shaggy got its name from its shaggy foot, then you are spot on. If you were thinking about Scooby-Doo....we might have a problem. The Gurkha Shaggy is a very distinctive cigar from the creative mind of K. Hansotia. Besides the noticeably exposed foot, the Shaggy utilizes a balanced recipe of vintage tobaccos. Bursting from within awaits 5-year old Dominican long-fillers and binder. Resting atop this aged core is an enticing chocolaty-brown 8-year old Dominican wrapper. Upon toasting the rugged foot, the binder and filler provide an insightful experience as to the taste of a cigar sans its wrapper. (Truly very unique if you have yet to experience it.) As the burn reaches the wrapper, warm smoke swarms the palate engulfing the senses as smooth notes of tobacco, oak, spice, and a hint of vanilla round out this medium-bodied treat. Not your normal Gurkha, heck – not your normal cigar, the Shaggy is a must try.

Customer Reviews of “Gurkha Vintage Shaggy”
Outstanding cigar! I'm a big Gurkha fan and this does not disappoint. Cedar with vanilla with each draw. Even burn and great taste. If you like a mild cigar and an easy smoke then this one is for you. Must try!
AB of Pleasanton, CA
A wonderful cigar with typical Gurhka consistency. This cigar was beautiful and I was just staring at it before and after I lit it. Dark chocolate brown maduro was smooth and looked almost velvety. The shaggy foot really does give a distinct flavor for the first 1/4 inch of the smoke. Once you hit the wrapper the flavor really does explode, cedar and vanilla tones in the description are spot on. At the midway point this cigar develops an even richer flavor. The Gurkha Shaggy has to be my new favorite of the Gurkha line.

Funny looking cigar, but what a surprise. Smooth...great flavor...great burn. LOVE IT!
ND of Nooksack, WA
WOW, WOW, WOW! I smoked this puppy down to a small smidgen of a nub with no hint of bite or heat. The flavor changes over the length from a creamy nutty smoke to a smooth earthy leather flavor all the while offering a complex palate of hidden flavors. Wish I had the $$ to buy these more often rather than the super rare treat.

I got some of these Shaggys in a sampler and I am impressed. I am smoking the Maduro Gordo 6 X 60 as I type. It has a almost perfect draw, even, clean no bite. So far the ash has not been good but I kind of expected that. The look is a dull sheen witch I like and the taste is a leathery sweetness That I haven't tasted before. It might be the Bacardi & Coke I'm sippen too. There is a lot of good smoke with this stick. The ash is a little flaky now but don't let that bother you this is a great medium smoke. The burn is still even so if I were you I'd get some of these now! you will enjoy this cigar.

I opened a 25 year old cognac to enjoy with a Vintage Shaggy and man was I in for a disappointing ride! Got these on special pricing and I have to admit they don't live up to the other Gurkhas I've smoked. The one I'm smoking now is spongy and the wrapper split almost immediately. The burn is inconsistent and has required repeated relighting. At least the cognac was great!!!
JN of Stanhope, NJ
A top cigar of my collection. Not sure if my senses are different than everyone else's or if my humidor adds a floral touch to my cigars but my experience, though great like the other reviewers, is different. I have the Shaggys in the lancero style and to me it's almost pure potpourri. Elegant and beautiful. I love these cigars. Mine have been resting for about a year. I highly recommend getting at least a few at a time so you have at least one to age.
