This post will be the first of a new style of writing. I read an article about becoming a better Cigar Taster and how to enhance my tasting ability. From now on I will be writing about what I taste in a cigar and how the quality of smoke and ash was while smoking it.
Gurkha’s Nepalese Class Regent is a combination of one of the finest cigar making families in the world and a man known for creating some of the most raved about blends on the market. Torano and K. Hansotia, two names that continue to enlighten our palates and further improve this luxurious slice of our life we call cigars.
Personally I was expecting more from this cigar after the last 2 that I smoked. The box-pressed Toro cigar was packed tight and very hard to squeeze. It lit well and burned well, but didn’t produce much smoke until about 1/3 of the way into the cigar. The tastes that I *think* I recognized were pepper and a hint of vanilla here and there.
I liked the cigar, but I think that I will stay with the Signature 101 or the Grand Envoy.
