Gurkha Class Regent Toro 6 x 50

Wrapper: Havana 2000

Pre-light smell is earthy with a hint of (I’m not making this up) raisins. Light taste pre-cut.

Cut with a punch. Draw is firm and again tastes of raisins.

 

The first few puffs are sweet and almost fruity. There is a slight spice. No after taste as of yet.

The first ash fell at just over an inch. Very smooth but with a fair amount of spice. The sweet has faded. Earthy aftertaste with a hint of raisins. Even burn.

At the half way point the cigar is of medium body and is smooth and earthy. Spice is in the taste and it is cool on the after taste. I think the raisin taste is from the smell of the cigar. It smells much sweeter than it tastes. It’s a very interesting cigar. Id like the draw to be a bit lighter.

The last two inches: Slightly warmer smoke and that brings a bit of a bite but no extra spice or harshness. A flavor of rye is coming on. This is a great way to finish a very good cigar.

The last few puffs are warm and rich spice with no bitter. It is toasty and smooth. A wonderful smell accompanies. There is less than an inch left and I want more. I must resist the urge to go grab another one.

There has been a slow perfect burn all the way down.
