Tasty beauties from Gurkha.
Their formula is simple: use a well-balanced blend of the highest grade Dominican long-leaf filler available, add a slightly spicy premium authentic Cameroon binder leaf, followed by a thick Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. The process however, is not so simple. Kaizad Hansotia of Gurkha Cigars holds the highest of standards, and expects perfection and excellence out of every cigar created. In order to achieve these high standards, the Legend must patiently undergo an extensive aging process of 8 long years. After all is said and done, this gorgeous, dense cigar delivers a powerful, rich bouquet of hearty flavors in a uniquely smooth mellow manner. Dark and oozing with oily goodness, the medium to full-bodied Gurkha Legend is a well filled, slow burning beauty that will demand your attention from start to finish.
Torpedo size measures 6.5" x 53.
Gurkha Legend received a well-deserved '90' rating, which commented:
"A very handsome, dark brown torpedo with a near perfect draw. It opens on a black cherry note with significant spicy, earthy flavors. Some licorice notes segue into a long, spicy finish."
