Gurkha Assassin Robusto Review

Gurkha Assassin Robusto - 4.75 X 50. Wrapper - Brazilian Mata Fina, Binder - Dominican Republic, Filler - Peru and Nicaragua. Full Bodied.

Initial lighting taste - Leather and wood.

First third - Spice followed by leather and cocoa notes.

Second third - Spice, chewy leather, cocoa and some citrus notes.

Last third - Continuation of the spice, chewy leather, cocoa and citrus notes. Long finish of spice and chocolaty leather.

Construction - A nice looking, medium-brown colored wrapper with a silky sheen. No major veins or soft spots. Simple looking cap.

Burn - Straight burn with a semi-solid, salt & pepper colored ash that held on.

Draw - Very good draw with plenty of smoke produced.

A wonderful cigar with plenty of complexity to keep it interesting and great balance to accompany the flavors. The chewy leather was a nice treat as was the cocoa and citrus notes. MSRP for this vitola is $8.90 which I feel this cigar is worth. Another great line from Gurkha which is rapidly becoming one of my favorite cigar companies - definite recommend to try.
