Gurkha Special Ops Maduro Churchill Cigar Review

This 7×50 stick offers a dark chocolate, firm, dry satin wrapper with slight tooth, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a double cap and very rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a snug draw putting out very good amounts of thick creamy smoke with medium body flavors of a rich smooth aged tobacco and a short clean finish. The first third bring the body up to medium-full with earthy chocolate notes and a good bit of pepper flavor, lasting through the now long finish. The smoke output is excellent, the draw loosened up to perfect. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors are up to full body with a deep in the chest earthiness, espresso and dark chocolate notes, dropping the pepper. By the end of the 2nd third the espresso flavor had really taken over, going big and creamy, dropping the earth. The finish also got bolder holding the coffee flavor with a good bit of oily pepper. Ending at 1:30 min the last third brought up the coffee even more, going to a lighter airy smoke. Thank you very much to YouTube viewer Juvethegreat86 for generously sending me this to review!
