Gurkha Evil Robusto

Gurkha Evil Robusto Cigar
I plucked this Gurkha Evil Robusto off the shelf during my last visit to Cigar Train, if you're not here in Spokane you can grab your very own single from MikesCigars.com for a mere $7.70

This well packed cigar was covered by an oily, silky smooth, seamless maduro colored wrapper and finished with a triple cap. My nose picked up a pleasant aroma of rich fermented tobacco from the foot and the free cold draw had notes of spicy fruit with a lingering spicy aftertaste.

Once it was burning the initial medium bodied flavors were a mix of fruit, cocoa and mild black pepper. After about a half inch, some oak joined in followed by chocolate, fruity dry red wine, earth, cream, and charcoal. The Evil Robusto finished it's sixty minute burn by providing a tasty mix of cream, chocolate and charcoal (burnt mocha).

Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. It had a slow sharp burn, a great fruit and chocolate flavor mix (heavy to chocolate full length), and it finished with my favorite flavors. I think Gurkha came up with a real winner here.
