Gurkha Triad Platinum $300 Cigar Review

This very limited production (6000 made) 7×52 stick features a very oily dark chocolate mottled firmly packed wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap, firm pack and pungent cocoa, manure and musty tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with soft silky medium bodied smoke showing flavors of an oily smooth tobacco with a long finish. The first third burns very well with the profile going to a combo of the oily smooth tobacco with a hint of mustiness and a sweet bread more so on the draw. The finish is soft and long lasting to the next draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes the 2nd third shifts to a medium-full body adding a touch of bakers chocolate to the mix. The ash falls in a solid chunk and construction is very good. Ending at 1:10 the last third showed no further flavor changes, ending 10 minutes or so early from a wonky burn. Thank you very much to Gurkha for sending this for review!
