Meet the Gurkha Bourbon Collection!
It’s a good thing these cigars come in tubes, because if you let them loose in your humidor, you’d soon have a giant whiskey box on your hands. Ordinarily, that’d be a good thing, but not when it comes at the cost of your entire cigar collection.
Pop the black wax seal on the top and you’ll be greeted with the warm aroma of sweet oaky bourbon. These cigars weren’t dipped or injected (these ain’t chocolates). Instead, they were “infused” using a secret method that only Gurkha and maybe Drew Estate could describe. The result is a nice aroma that gives you a good preview of what you’re in for when you light this one up.
The Gurkha Bourbon Collection Churchill cigar itself comes in both Maduro and Connecticut wrappers. Inside, there’s a Nicaraguan binder and filler. Light it up and the bourbon will stay at center stage. The smoke is medium-bodied, and tastes mostly like bourbon with a bit of pepper and earth from the Nicaraguan long-filler tobacco. Mostly things are oaky, smoky, and sweet thanks to the Hartfield and Co. aged bourbon straight from the distillery in Bourbon County, Kentucky. The air will fill with the aroma of spicy whiskey and the smoke carries that classic vanilla note you’ll find in most good bourbons.
If you’re a whiskey lover and you’re in the mood for something a little different in your next cigar, this could be a fun one to try. We could imagine this as an interesting campfire cigar, or maybe a bachelor party cigar. Give it a shot and let us know where, if anywhere, it might fit into your rotation. We’re curious about how people find these liquor-infused cigars.
