An acquaintance recently gave me a Gurkha cigar. He stated that he didn't like dark wrappers. This stick was exactly 4" by about 45 (certainly not a cigarillo) and smooth sided like a robusto (I think) with a typical blunt head. It had a dark maduro wrapper and a standard large gold Gurkha band which appeared to be too large for the stick. It was sealed in celophane so I don't think it had been shortened. I have not been able to identify it and my friend doesn't remember where he got it. Having smoked machine made cigars many years ago I have just taken up the hobby of enjoying a good cigar. This Gurkha was, for me by far, the best smoke I've ever tasted. It had a long burn for its size and was amazingly rich in body and flavor. Can anyone help me? I'd be happy to learn of another smoke that might come close. Thanks.
