In the early 2010s, Gurkha had a new executive come aboard and released a few new lines to provide some solid smokes that customers could really dig and that would breathe a bit of new life into the brand. Among these was the Gurkha Ghost. Ironic that they chose a smoke named after the dead to bring fresh life to the portfolio! There can be no doubt that Gurkha soldiers have created many ghosts in their years of combat as they terrorized their enemies. It was only a matter of time before they had their own honorary cigar.
The first thing you notice, unlike many cigars, won’t be the wrapper. The silver foil band, with its holographic effect, will grab your eyes and remind you who one of the kings of cigar packaging is. Twist it back and forth and save it for later to give to your kids – they’ll think it’s neat (even if daddy’s paper rings are “stinky.”)
Outside, the Gurkha Ghost features a Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper. Inside, you’ll get a rich Dominican Criollo ‘98 binder, along with a Dominican and Nicaraguan long-filler blend. Lighting this thing up creates a near supernatural amount of smoke. Seriously, this is one of those cigars that puts out clouds that look like the ones you get when someone decides to cool down an overheating engine by tossing a cup of water at it on a summer day. It practically “smokes itself.”
The feel of the smoke is about medium-bodied, and offers flavors of cocoa, anise, and pepper. It’s a nice flavor profile and a quality blend, especially for those who like Maduros and a dark, earthy taste.
