Gurkha Master Select Connecticut

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.

Master sums up this cigar!
Gurkha Master select CT is impressive by any cigar standards. The CT wrapper is flawlessly smooth to the touch and easy on the eyes. The Master has that true CT wrapper flavor of cedar and earthy richness. The draw is effortless and the flavor is on point. I have been a fan of fuller bodied cigars, but this stick has lots of flavor. It stands at a M-body with real complexity that you usually don't taste in lighter bodied cigars. The cigar has volumes of creamy smoke that leaves the palate wanting more. I just ordered more of them when I was asked to write a review, so the memory is fresh in my mind. I usually smoke my lighter bodied smokes from breakfast up until dinner - then I have my "go to" fuller bodied cigars, but this is one of my faves right up until after dinner. This is a masterful smoke from Gurkha that will leave you satisfied down to the nub.

Gurkha Select Connecticut . A nice cigar.
I really enjoyed this cigar, a nice smooth slightly sweet smoke. A relaxing, carefree smoke as the burn was razor sharp and required no re-lighting or touch- ups along the way. No bad after taste or burning of the palate. I recommend this cigar and will be purchasing more soon.

Good Gurkas
I always like Gurkas, despite the outrageous "deals" they offer. Hard to believe they ever really sell for their regular price given how much of a discount they usually offer. These cigars were exceptional, though. I like mild and these were mild, but the flavor and construction were even better than what I have come to expect from Gurka. There is no name on the lapel, so remember what they are after you buy them, as you will probably come back for more.
