REVIEW NOTES

Pre-Light Observations I have been looking forward to trying the Gurkha Seduction for quite some time. The wrapper is a very dark brown and it smells like a barnyard. It looks as though the wrapper was very wet when applied as there are small frays sticking up here and there, and the band is stained on the inside. The pre-light draw is smooth and has a sweet flavor. Tasting Notes The initial flavors produced by the cigar remind me of roasted almonds. It has a bit of a rustic smoky flavor with black cherry and vanilla notes. Around the halfway point the cigar transitioned into earthy radish flavor. Both samples that I smoked burned a bit wavy, but I can't report any major problems. Conclusions In conclusion, I did enjoy the Gurkha Seduction, but there also wasn't really anything about it that would make me want to run out and buy more. As mentioned, the cigar reminds me of a more rustic flavor profile, with roasted nuts and berries, and earthy flavors. It might be a smoke for the up coming fall season.
