Gurkha Empire VI Cigar Review

This 5.5×54 stick features a very dark brown, oily, slick, slightly tooth firm wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with minimal smoke output bug medium-full body flavor showing a peppery, deep damp earth with a bitter long finish. The first third burns well, takes it’s time and opens up the draw nicely. Flavors are fairly smooth, adding a chocolate to compliment the pepper and the bitterness fades way down. Ash only holds on less than an inch but the burn is perfect. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, flavors are largely unchanged, just bringing the body down to medium, completely losing the bitterness and the pepper zing lasts longer through the finish. Ending at the hour mark, the last third shifted to a big nuttiness with some metallic-minty like zing especially on the finish. Body remained at medium while a bit of strength crept in just for the last inch. Thank you very much to viewer Dexter Hicks for sending this in for review!
