Gurkha Ghost "Asura" Review

Gurkha Ghost "Asura" - 6 X 54. Wrapper - Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro, Binder - Dominican Criollo '98, Filler - Dominican Republic & Nicaragua. Medium - full bodied.

Initial lighting taste - Cedar and spice.

First third - Spice, Earthiness, cedar with emerging notes of cinnamon and citrus.

Second third - Spiciness continues along with the sweet Earth, citrus and cinnamon.

Last third - Spice, sweet Earthiness, tangy citrus and cinnamon. Long tasty finish of tangy spice and Earth coating the palate.

Construction - Attractive, dark-brown wrapper with minimal veins, a nice oily sheen and a well constructed cap.

Burn - Sharp burn with a dark gray colored ash that holds on for almost two inches.

Draw - Draw was just right producing plenty of smoke on the exhale.

Gurkha Cigars has really been coming out with some fantastic new cigar lines of late. I was very impressed with the complexity and flavor profile of this cigar. The balance was superb as well. The flavors seemed to wash over the palate in waves imparting their unique tastes. MSRP for this size is a very consumer friendly price of $7.00 - a perfect gift for the holiday season coming up - a definite recommend.
