Gurkha Signature 101, Maduro

This is my 2nd Gurkha cigar to smoke.  I haven’t bought or smoked these before because, quite frankly, they are too high-priced.  Most B&M’s charge $8-$10 minimum for most Gurkha vitolas.  I picked up a 10-pack of these sticks for $30, so I was quite pleased to get the quality of smoke for such a great price.

This blend offers a dark, oily Costa Rican Maduro wrapper, a leaf with some fantastic characteristics.  The cigar had a rich blend of well-aged Honduran, Dominican, and Jamaican long-leaf tobaccos. Medium to full-bodied, this complex blend provides plenty of smoke, full-flavor and smoked cool and clean down the the nub.   I tasted nothing special, just full-flavored smoke and great taste.  I am glad I got this stick and will be happy to buy more.

I rate this cigar at a A-
