So look at this cigar the same way. The Gurkha Evil is strong, potent, and a touch ferocious. We’d forgive you for thinking of it as evil.
The outer leaf is a Shade-grown Brazilian Mata Fina Wrapper. It’s rustic and hearty like the Gurkhas themselves, far from those smooth and refined leaves you might find on a sophisticated Davidoff smoke. Inside, you’ll get a Dominican Binder and a Nicaraguan filler. The result is a powerful, full-bodied cigar, with the flavors of pepper and wood, earth, roasted nuts, and an intriguing floral finish that got 90 points from the chimneys over at Cigar Aficionado.
There are some vices that are both potent and evil. A bottle of 151, for example, is pure evil. A ghost pepper, even for people who love spice, is definitely evil. But the Gurkha Evil, we have to say, doesn’t deliver on the name, and that’s a good thing. This is a strong and tasty smoke – just be sure that you’re in the mood for something that doesn’t pull its punches.
