If you were guessing the Gurkha Shaggy got its name from its shaggy foot, then you are spot on. If you were thinking about Scooby-Doo....we might have a problem. The Gurkha Shaggy is a very distinctive cigar from the creative minds of Gurkha. Besides the noticeably exposed foot, the Shaggy utilizes a balanced recipe of vintage tobaccos. Bursting from within awaits 5-year old Dominican long-fillers and binder. Resting atop this aged core is an enticing chocolaty-brown 8-year old Dominican wrapper. Upon toasting the rugged foot, the binder and filler provide an insightful experience as to the taste of a cigar sans its wrapper. (Truly very unique if you have yet to experience it.) As the burn reaches the wrapper, warm smoke swarms the palate engulfing the senses as smooth notes of tobacco, oak, spice, and a hint of vanilla round out this medium-bodied treat. Not your normal Gurkha, heck – not your normal cigar, the Shaggy is a must try.

It is Unique
This cigar was just awful tasting to me. I am relatively new to cigars so I assume there must be a market for this flavor somewhere. I can only quantify the flavor as one that makes me think of finding this cigar on the floor of a dusty old attic, and while still covered in decades of dust, lighting it up and puffing away on the staleness. I fought on through the entire Presidente hoping it would shift to a more palatable flavor but it never did. It required multiple relights and burned uneven. It's only redeeming quality to me was that I was able to trade two of these large beasts to another BOTL for a Romeo and Julieta that I enjoyed substantially more. If I could only find good loving homes for the other 7.
