Gurkha Yakuza

As many know, I became quite disappointed by Gurkha long ago. This cigar has been in the humidor for awhile, and I got tired of moving it around.

So, upon removing it from the humidor, the foot began to swell and unravel a bit.

But, I lit up anyway. I prefer to remove the band, but it is a Gurkha, so I left it in place. Soon enough the head began to peel away. I thought it noteworthy as it usually swells from the lit end.

A little moisture held things in place, and I was able to enjoy it anyway.

The taste profile was, hmm, if a Gurkha Beast and a Diesel had a baby...this is probably the most maddening thing about Gurkha, you get one that works and buy more, only to have them unravel in your hand. This one was OK, though.

There were not any notes of chocolate chips or barnyard aroma, but I enjoyed it anyway 😄
