The entire line of Gurkha cigars is legendary, once reserved for the world’s elite. Now somewhat more accessible to the common aficionado, Gurkhas have lost none of their mystique as one of the finest cigars available.
When Gurkha named one of its products “Legend,” you know they had something very special in mind. As usual, they succeeded in creating a cigar without peer.
The Gurkha Legend derives much of its flavor from a renowned Maduro Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. Inside this luscious leaf is a well-aged eight-year-old Dominican filler. As if that weren’t enough to start connoisseurs salivating, Gurkha incorporated a fabulous Cameroon binder into the Legend.
Knowing this, it’s understandable if your hand trembles a bit as you remove a Legend from your humidor. Savor the aroma of the unlit cigar, then toast the end and take the first puff. Rich leathery and spicy notes roll across your palate. This is a strong and luscious cigar, not overly complex, just the thing for kicking back and contemplating the good things in life.
The Gurkha Legend makes you think of buttery leather club chairs, damask draperies, a fire in the fireplace, candlelight—refined elegance. Enjoy one of these when you have the leisure time to devote to smoking it. The Legend is very densely constructed and burns slowly but evenly. It is tends to be a big cigar, which extends the pleasure for quite some time.
With a premium cigar of this stature, you know you’re going to be getting a finely crafted smoke. The 52-ring Gurkha Legend Torpedo itself requires the kind of expertise possessed only by the most expert hand rollers in the world.
