Few cigars can match the caliber of Gurkha handmade cigars. Considered to be some of the world's finest and most prestigious super-premiums, the Gurkha brand represents a small-batch selection of ultra-elusive cigars that routinely receive top ratings in addition to 'Best of the Best' honors from the
. Always pushing the envelope with exotic, high-end blends, Gurkha got another trick up its mighty sleeve, and it's called the Black Dragon.
Dressed in a dark and toothy, 5-year old Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, the Black Dragon hails from Honduras and combines a vintage mixture of Dominican long-leaf tobaccos secured within a Cameroon binder. The smoke is thick and chewy, with a rich, leathery core and elegant hints of earth, complemented by an assortment of sweet spices on the finish. Medium in body and complex, yet buttery smooth, the Black Dragon is unlike any Gurkha you've tried before.
Naturally, these cigars come magnificently packaged. Inventory is extremely limited.
note: the package has recently been updated for the Black Dragon. We were fortunate to receive an advance shipment of this packaging, complete with new bands.
I buy and smoke a lot of cigars. I got a hold of a box of Cuban Cohibas that were very good. I honestly think The Black Dragons are better than the Cohibas; but that's just my opinion. Right now, this is my favorite cigar at any price.
