Black Beauty, a darker, richer version of Gurkha's mild-bodied work of art. Black Beauty employs the same rare blend of 5-year-old Nicaraguan long-fillers inside a vintage Cuban-seed Dominican binder from the Cibao Valley. However, this blockbuster recipe is then made complete with a dark, extra-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Extensively aged, this thick, rich wrapper takes the Beauty's rich and creamy core to bold new heights. A rich, toasty smoke layered with deep roasted flavors, coffee bean, and a long, naturally sweet finish is what to expect. Satisfying, medium-bodied layers of smooth, sophisticated flavors with every last puff. Black Beauty is delicious, and here for a limited time only.
Decent flavor but half of the box had draw and burning issues. You had to but at least an inch of the torpedo tip off the back to get the cigar to draw at all, it was so tight. They burned unevenly and required frequent attention. I don't know if I got a bad batch but this cigar was just not worth the trouble. There are better smokes for the money. Maybe Gurkha should make fewer different cigars than the 3 million they currently crank out but make the ones they sell properly?
