It’s nice to have an affordable cigar from a company that makes smokes for the internationally rich and famous jetsetters of the world. For that reason this cigar is, dare we say it… seductive?
The Gurkha Seduction isn’t one of those cigars that has a crazy story or a special gimmick. Instead, this cigar is a straight shooter. It shows you exactly what it is, delivers just that, and then goes on its way. In a market full of cigars that are overhyped and overblown (Gurkha, with its thousand-dollar cigar, is no stranger to this), it’s always a welcome shift to catch a cigar that doesn’t need to dress up to catch your attention.
So let’s check out the Gurkha Seduction.
The cover leaf is an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. You’ll see toothiness, veins, and a real natural look that shows you what kind of cigar this is. Not overly polished – just honest quality tobacco grown under the partly-cloudy skies of Ecuador. It’s also got a multiple cap head, so cut or punch to your preference.
Inside the cigar is a Dominican Olor binder. This varietal of tobacco is grown for its broad and lush leaves that make a nice sturdy and flavorful binding choice. Our friend Olor is holding in the product of yet another country: a Columbian Corojo long-filler blend.
Each of the leaves chosen for this blend work quite well together to provide a fairly straightforward flavor profile. Nothing dominates the aromas of the cigar. Instead, you get a nice natural tobacco flavor, with maybe a few flashes of light leather, pepper, and pecans. It’s a medium-bodied smoke that is quite a departure from a company known for its marketing flashiness. This is the type of cigar any of us might roll up for ourselves, really. The difference is, Gurkha has access to really good tobacco and knows how to blend it properly.
Is there anything more seductive than someone who knows what they want and simply asks for it? We’re sold.
