This weekend I had the pleasure to review a cutter sent to me by Select Draw Cigar Cutters. This thing was truly a work of art! Below you will find some pictures of the cutter, followed by a full video review! Make sure to check them out at www.selectdrawcigarcutters.com
Todays review is on a cigar that has been around for almost a decade. This cigar first come out around 2010. It came to me in a Bespoke Subscription box last month, and yesterday I finally got time to fire it up.
Hello everybody, today we take a look at the Gurkha Warlord! This is a big and beautiful cigar that is full of flavor. You better have time for this one, this smoke took me about almost 2 hours to finish, it comes in at a whopping 6.7 x 60 Gordo! The Warlord is very well constructed with a Nicaraguan wrapper and and a Connecticut Broadleaf Binder. This is a full flavored cigar, but do not let that scare you away, its complex with some good flavors. Straight out of the box this cigar has a mild earthy smell mixed with black pepper. The Warlord lights up good and produces nice thick smoke, the first puff will give you a big shot of black pepper, but hang with it, in a few minutes it turns more earthy with a hint of cedar and barley mixed with just a little pepper. This cigar continued to burn good for me the entire time and produced long as and lots of smoke. As you approach the end of the cigar I found it to get a very sweet flavor and the perfect end for a cigar that started out so strong! This cigar comes in at $299.99 for a box of 33 at www.cigarsinternational.com so thats only $9 a cigar, well worth it for a smoke with so many flavors. Full score under the photo.
Last week me and the family went to Tennessee for vacation and i came across Smokies Vapor & Cigar Shop in Pigeon Forge. While there i purchased several cigars, and one of them being the Chillin Moose. I got a minute to relax and fire it up this weekend and it was worth the wait. Full review below the picture!
Upon first inspection this is a well made cigar. Its a medium bodied cigar but is packed with flavor. It is wrapped in a Connecticut Habano wrapper with an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder with Dominican, Nicaraguan, Mexican San Andres and Connecticut Broadleaf fillers. I used my Colibri V-Cut and man was that a good choice! Once toasted the first puff was a sweet, creamy flavor and some earthiness, if you like a cigar that produces a lot of smoke, then this is for you. The cigar burned well through out the whole smoke, i did not have to touch it up any. For a cigar that cost about $3 dollars a stick, you really cant go wrong with this one, it will not break the bank and is a good smoke to share with the guys during a round of golf or a cold drink. I paired it with a corona premier sitting next to the pool, and it made a great summer time combination.
