A Classic Gets a Facelift
Gurkha Master Select has a rich and storied history among the pantheon of Gurkha’s greatest offerings. Originally created as a collaborative effort with Fidel Olivas, Master Select has reappeared in a few different forms over the last two decades. Today, we’re looking at a mellower version of this Honduran masterpiece — Gurkha Master Select Connecticut.
Using the original recipe that made Master Select so popular, Master Select Connecticut swaps out the traditional Habano outer leaf for a fine Connecticut that’s been perfectly aged. Notes of white pepper and cedar mingle with slight cream and hay to create a Connecticut with a little more oomph, that still won’t overwhelm if you pick this one as a coffee companion. In all, Master Select Connecticut is a fine sequel to a worthy handmade.
