Gurkha, holy chit! I found this one at a really nice cigar lounge in Mcgregor, TX.
I was looking for something to bring in the new year and Gurkha just seemed appropriate.
The person working the counter recommended it and said you will absolutely enjoy this one. Not knowing what to expect I decided to try this one. I was told it was the ‘Bourbon one’ .
Upon the the New Year’s arrival , I broke her out and looked it over. Encased in a glass tube and sealed with black wax it was like waiting for a movie I’ve been wanting to see start.
Once I cut open the wax, Mother of Holy Aromas!
I could definitely smell the bourbon, a sweet liquor smell that had invaded every inch of this fine cigar.
Cut it and took a dry hit, the bourbon notes were not overpowering and left a great taste to the lip. I chose the Churchill which is a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. A silky smooth creamy appearance. What a way to bring in the New Year! Turned out to be an extremely enjoyable stogie. Smoked it to the nub.
How did you bring in the New Year?
