Gurkha Centurian Double Perfecto

Description

These special edition perfectos are so exclusive that the Sultan of Brunei is the only customer - until now.

This limited release is truly something special. Gurkha, of course, is the brand that’s widely hailed as one of the finest handmade cigars in the world, often called the “Rolls Royce of cigars.” And with the extremely limited, Special-Edition Centurian Double-EX, they may have outdone even themselves. In fact, this was originally made for the Sultan of Brunei - a cigar so limited and exclusive that it was commissioned specifically by one of the wealthiest men in the world for his own private consumption.

These cigars are hand-rolled from exquisite Cuban-seed ligero tobaccos grown in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic, aged 8 full years, and hugged by gorgeous, dark, silky Connecticut wrappers fermented to perfection. This combination imparts a rich, very creamy taste with just the slightest hint of spice, and a mellow, pleasant, yet remarkable burst of flavor on the finish. This Perfecto shape is intriguing, a thick 60-ring perfecto that carefully tapers at both ends. Due to the demands of the tricky shape and quantity of aged tobaccos used in each cigar, only the most experienced torcedors in the factory are allowed to make the size, resulting in unerring consistency and flawless construction.

Keep in mind, the Centurian is a limited release, a collector's item.

Brandon of CI reviewed this cigar:
"I bought a mazo the moment they hit our dock (the employee discount comes in handy here!). It's only been about 4 days and I've smoked 10 of them already....I can't get enough! Here's how it unfolds: upon lighting, the draw is consistently a bit firm initially until the burn passes the small opening of the foot. Immediately thereafter the draw is very easy, very gentle. At first, the flavor is reminiscent of many of the best Cuban cigars I have ever had - slightly spicy at the beginning and relatively light. However this does not last long as the cigar continues to burn towards the thicker portion of the barrel. There is no shortage of smoke which is thick and billowy and almost yellowish in color. The flavor becomes very rich and complex and develops into a full-bodied number by the half way point. This is definitely a cigar best enjoyed in the evening, after dinner and possibly accompanied by a rich Belgian beer or perhaps a nice glass of Port. Awesome! A big quantity of these smokes will definitely find a home in my humidor. A cigar worthy of a Sultan!"
