With a name like Wicked Indie, I'll admit I was a bit skeptical at first. It sounds kinda shoddy, but an honest look reveals another top-notch handmade from K. Hansotia of Gurkha cigars. Hand-crafted in Nicaragua, each Wicked Indie is dressed in a golden brown Nicaraguan habano wrapper glistening with oils. This striking leaf houses a complex bouquet of Nicaraguan long-fillers patiently aged for 3 years. The end result is a well-balanced cigar with plenty of big time flavors in tow. Up front, the Gurkha Wicked Indie starts out with pepper and oak, before slowly transitioning into deep notes of caramel, coffee, and a spicy-sweet tobacco finish. Thick and chewy smoke coats the palate, as the Gurkha Wicked Inidie remains smooth all the way to the nub. Sure to treat you right, this highly enjoyable medium-bodied handmade is destined to become a regular in your rotation.
Gurkha Wicked Indie received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "A fairly thick cigar with an easy draw that's full of fresh, rich tobacco notes. Some nutty flavors join a combination of molasses, sea salt and floral flavors."
Steered away from Gurkhas for a while as I had a couple of under performing smokes but was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness and flavor of this cigar. Mellow, great draw, and big full smokey puffs perfect for a nice fall day! Wish I'd bought more.
