May 19th 2012 - Gurkha Beast
Today brings us the Gurkha Beast in a 6.5x56 vitola. The Beast is a limited production cigar by Gurkha with only 1000 boxes being produced annually. The Beast is wrapped in a well aged Costa Rican Maduro wrapper with it's fillers being a mix from the Dominican Republic, the Honduras, and Columbia. You'll get a chocolaty, earth and woody smoke with a full classic maduro sweetness to it as well. I chose this for today's cigar to celebrate London Fletcher's 37th birthday. London is a beast of a LB and has had a very long and productive career. I may not be a Redskins fan but I enjoy watching him play on a weekly basis. Happy Birthday London!
