Gurkha "The Pinker" 6 X 60 Review

Gurkha "The Pinker" 6 X 60. Wrapper - Dominican (Cuban seed Habano), Binder - Dominican, Filler - Dominican. Medium - full bodied. Special blend made for radio host Geoff Pinkus.

Initial taste was a dry woody taste which quickly turned into flavors of Leather, wood and some spice.

A little before the halfway point, this cigar begins to build with the leathery flavor picking-up, spicieness increasing and the woodiness in the background.

The last third of this cigar continues to build in flavor with the leather becomming more of a tangy citrus leather taste with the spice balanced nicely along with the woodiness. I also got some slight note of a sweetness that was very enjoyable.

Construction burn and draw were perfect. Beautiful oily brown wrapper on this cigar. The cigar never got hot or bitter and had good complexity for a cigar with such a big ring guage. Long finish of leather and spice. MSRP on this vitola is $10.00. I recommend trying The Pinker!
