Jan 26th 2012 - Gurkha Master's Select

Today brings us the Gurkha Master's Select Toro in a 6x50 vitola. The Master's Select is a highly rated and revered cigar by the folks at Gurkha. It features a Dominican Habano 2000 wrapper and it has fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Honduras. The Masters Select gives you an earthy, woody and nutty cigar that has hints of pepper and spice throughout. I chose this to be today's cigar as today Danny Dietz would have celebrated his 32nd birthday. Danny served as a Gunner's Mate 2nd Class in the Navy as a SEAL. Danny valiantly gave his life fighting for our country on June 28th 2005 in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan. Danny was on a mission with Michael P. Murphy, Marcus Luttrell and Matthew Axelson when they were discovered by 3 goat herders. Upon releasing them they immediately told the Taliban who launched a large scale attack on the 4 man SEAL team. Danny stayed in their first position to try and establish communications but was unsuccessful. He fought even after being shot multiple times and was being drug as he could no longer walk. Danny was awarded the Navy Cross, the 2nd highest Navy award, posthumously for his bravery and actions that day. Thanks for everything you did Danny we will never forget what you did for us.
