Gurkha goes pre-Embargo
The width and breadth of the Gurkha empire of brands is as strong as the day is long. Indeed, from uber-refined, ultra-expensive Cognac infused cigars, to everyday-friendly, insanely affordable bundles, Gurkha can do it all. Today, Kaizad Hansotia (the brand’s mastermind) turns his attention to pre-embargo Cuba to craft a cigar that honors the Cuban heritage of all modern-day cigars with the new Gurkha Marquesa.
The artwork on this one is, quite frankly, beautiful, and luckily the flavor is just as nice. Utilizing a soft and silky Sumatra wrapper leaf, Gurkha Marquesa delivers a medium-bodied profile that includes hints of roasted nuts, slight saltiness, natural tobacco crispness, and a sweet core of flavor. Marquesa might just end of being one of Gurkha’s best blends to date, so I’d highly recommend grabbing yourself a few today.
