Gurkha - Seduction - XO

Strength:  Medium
Origins: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Ecuadorean Habano
Shape: straight
Length: 6"
Ring size: 60
Approx cost: $7.50
Bdawg days: I have decided that I am not a big fan of 60" ring gages. With the amount of smoke inhaled with each puff, it is hard to detect the nuances of the flavor profile. For instance, I rated the Churchill size of this cigar a 3.5, this XO size will not be rated as highly.

The wrapper is rough and wrinkly, Hershey colored with a tint of copper. Nice soft and pliant. The draw is nice producing a good amount of smoke and a very grey ash. The flavor was very Earthy, with a hint of cloves and cinnamon. The burn was even and medium paced.
