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.
“Great cigar! having not tried the original beauty, after smoking this one of the fuller profile down to the final inch, it stayed cool and mellow all the way down.Black Beauty is fine experience.
Nice draw, nice burn and great flavors. Don't hold off on this one”

“Not bad, but not as good as the regular Beauty.”

“WOW! What a cigar! I had one last night and didn't believe it. So I had to have another tonight same result! Solid cigar with a smooth, solid burn and excellent flavor.”

“Very easy to light. Average construction, draw and burn. Open draw with only medium smoke output at best. Cool burn with a couple minor touchups needed. Thinner smoke on palate. Mild strength with mild to medium flavors. Classic maduro flavors of sweet tobacco, earth and coffee. Flavors very pronounced and blend very nice. A short finish after each draw with no trace of spice or pepper. Strength and flavors remain very consistent from beginning to end with no complexity.”

“I'm smoking the Gran Torpedo profile. This is a good tasting stick. It looks seriously big and bad (a bit rustic and definitely dark). I'm a bit upset though because I'm having trouble with the wrapper. The wrapper is on the thin side and demands careful handling. The leaf came completely off the tip so I'm tasting binder more than would be ideal. Still, a good dark chocolate thing is going on with the aged wood component that is excellent. Real smooth without any off tastes.”
“Had my first Gurkha out on the patio late nite with a cup of fresh ground coffee. Burn was slow, earthy, slight sweet pepper flavor. Nice billowy smoke that built up to a full flavor at the end. Will let my other ones sit in the humidor for a bit and try again. A good cigar for the price!

“....Very displeased with these cigars. Right after I got them, I decided to try one of these. As soon as I lit this cigar within a 1/4 inch of ash, it started to crack and split down the barrel and the wrapper started coming off. I lit another one and also the same thing happened....”

“WOW. This BEAUTY is great, mellow, has wonderful flavors and it's not overpowering in strength. This bad boy held an ash for over 2.5 inches and the aroma is nice, too. I had several ppl asking me what brand I was smoking, and they were shocked when I told them. Treat yourself and try these wonderful cigars. The torpedoes are a good 60-90 min enjoyable smoke.
