Behold, Gurkha Ninja.
Ninja is the latest in full-flavored creations by Kaizad Hansotia under the prestigious Gurkha label. This feisty new handmade hails from the Dominican Republic and combines a thick and oily Brazilian wrapper with aged, Cuban-seed Dominican long-fillers. Each of the five savory sizes is medium in body but layered with flavor, dishing out rich and satisfying nuances with every last puff. Notes of coffee and earth are complemented by a chewy sweetness on the finish, while the cigar remains balanced and smooth down to the nub.
Gurkha Ninja received a well deserved 91-point rating, noting: "Dark and oily with a sweet bouquet coming from the unlit foot. The cigar burns a bit unevenly, though draws well, showing coffee bean notes, nutty flavors, and an underlying sweetness."
