All Heart references aside, here are some poignant facts that’ll get the mouth-a-watering for Gurkha’s latest and greatest. First, the blend oozes everything Gurkha. Vintage, carefully-selected tobaccos – check. Long-fillers from Central America’s most respected growing regions – check. A gorgeous, dark, and oily wrapper leaf – check. The formula is right, the cigar feels good, let's give this cap a clip and test it out.
From the word go, Barracuda impresses. Weighty in the hand, the draw and burn line on this one are just as good as you'd expect from a name brand like Gurkha. Taking a few puffs, this Double Perfecto booms out thick, chewy clouds of earth, natural tobacco notes, and slight cedar. Barracuda is a great example of why Gurkha is so popular, so if you haven't done it yet, I'd recommend checking this one out ASAP.
