East India Trading Company Wicked Indie Churchill Cigar Review

This 7×50 cigar features a dark tan wrapper with a couple small veins, tight invisible seams, a smooth slightly toothy feel, even spongy give, double cap and very rich hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with thick rich medium-full bodied smoke producing flavors of a sweet wood and pepper combo with a short oily finish. The first third goes way down in body to mild-medium, producing a woody flavor with a bit of zing and pepper, that also carries through the finish. Draw and smoke output are excellent, burn is razor sharp. 30 minutes in starting the 2nd third, flavors were up to a medium body, dropping the pepper and zing, going to just a soft, oily creamy textured wood note that holds through the lengthening finish. Construction is still great, the ash falling off in solid inch chunks. 55 minutes in ending the 2nd third, flavors have transitioned slightly to a sweet creamy wood, with a very dry parched finish. Still perfect construction, solid ash drops, an all flavor, no strength. Ending at 1:30 the last third shifted the sweetness to a toasty caramel, almost a burnt flavor, keeping the creamy wood at the core. Thank you very much to East India Trading Company for sending this for review!

    I am a new name to your site, but love the reviews. I have probably seen over 40 of your videos and still counting. I know a lot of people start with reviews and vanish quickly. Thanks for keeping it up. All the best, keep smoking :-)

    A few years ago I bought two “boxes” of maduro churchills. They came inside a nice looking ceramic “humidor.” They were not nicely constructed, most of them were not straight, but I have to say that they were one hell of a stogie. I was extremely sad when I smoked my last one.

    Sadly I looked all over the ‘net to see if I could get another “box,” no luck there. I am glad they are coming back; I hope they bring back that maduro Churchill.

    Keep on smoking and reviewing Bryan.
    Best regards,
    Luis

    It looks like Gurkha (or at least its parent company) has finally realized that it can no longer rest on its outdated focus on the super-exclusive market and inconsistent blending. I’ll definitely be taking a look at the new affordable cigars they’re coming out with.

    Thanks for the review.

    I got to say you can’t go wrong with this one, for the price it’s almost foolproof, mine seemed to have a hint of refreshing citrus finish to it kind of like squirting a lime onto some Mexican food.

    I just bought one of these today because I knew it was made by Kaizad Hansotia and the fact that it was so cheep compared to most of his cigars. I am going to let it set in my humidor for a few months before I smoke it, but I’m sure it is going to be good.
    great review.

    I smoked this cigar yesterday and it was great I would definitely buy this again, maybe even a whole box.
