Smoke Notes: Gurkha Estate Select Vintage Shaggy

I picked this cigar up at a nice shop in Michigan City Indiana about an hour east of Chicago. It is a beautiful oily toro that weighs in at 6×50 with Nicaraguan/Dominican filler and a Dominican wrapper and binder. I gets its the name “Shaggy” from the uncommon unwrapped foot it has. It is a smooth wrapper with some small bumps and veins. The wrapper has a deep dark leather look to it. The flavor was good with notes of coffee and a little leather for sure with the draw being firm but comfortable. The burn went back and forth from being straight as can possibly be to going off some but never needed corrected and it was actually fun to watch. Why I don’t know maybe I was bored but it never stopped moving around. Once the ash got to the wrapper it was solid but ugly and lasted about an inch or a little over. I think it might have been a little over humidified. Over all this is a good smoke but I don’t know if it is worth the $8 I paid for it. When I run across some more I will pick them up so I can do a full review on them. Very interesting though so they are worth a shot. Sorry for being so short and the bad pictures. I will spend more time on it when I get to do a full review.
