|Shapes||Double Perfecto, Toro|
A bold statement, from one of the finest cigar makers in the world.
Labeling a cigar as ‘Legend’ is a bold claim that cannot be backed by just any cigar maker. Fortunately, Gurkha is not your ordinary, everyday cigar maker. Quietly and efficiently, Gurkha has become one of the top boutique brands in the land, creating some of the finest, most prestigious and sought after premium cigars in the world. They’re not cheap, but the best rarely is. To put it bluntly, Gurkha Legend Centurian is one of the best cigars in the Gurkha portfolio, hands down.
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 Habano 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 manner. 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.
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."
