Gurkha Nicaragua in Toro by Gurkha Cigars

COVID-19 Day 589
 Gurkha, Gurkha Nicaragua, Gurkha Nicaragua Series, Nicaraguan Corojo 99, Toro Through a very open and loose draw come mouthfuls of dry smoke of bread, browned butter, leather, white pepper, and cedar. The retrohale provides a decent white pepper spice that seems just right for the flavors in this Gurkha Nicaragua in Toro by Gurkha Cigars.

At the second third, leather and white pepper tobacco flavors are starting to move forward. There is also a burnt sugar (Cream Brûlée) sweetness in there too with a healthy white pepper spice on the retrohale still through a very open draw and dry smoke.

If I try really hard, I can eke out some familiar Aganorsa tobacco flavors way in the background trying to reveal themselves… let’s see if they come out in the last third.

At the last third, it was too hot for me to handle… bitter almond paste is a sure sign for me to move on.
