Gurkha Black Dragon Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 stick features a thick, very dark brown slightly oily and toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, an even slightly spongy give and mild soapy tobacco aroma. First light reveals minimal smoke output with mild-medium smooth tobacco flavors and a slightly grassy finish. Rolling it around firmly reveals a lump and knot at the band point. Rolling the knot worked it out well enough, providing a perfect draw with good smoke output showing mild-medium peppery tobacco flavors and a long finish of the same. The 2nd third starts with poor construction needing two touchups, continuing the same flavors profile. Getting near the band, flavors change a bit, dropping the pepper in favor of a slight cream to go with the tobacco – still on the mild side. Ending with in inch left at the hour mark, the last third showed no flavor changes, just going to a very parched finish. Thank you very much to viewer Vince McCabe for sending this in for review, I really appreciate it!
