The Cigar Dave Officers Club selection for March 2019 is a Gurkha sampler including the Gurkha Ghost and the Gurkha Marquesa
The Gurkha Ghost is a sleek and alluring cigar that should make an appearance in anyone’s humidor. The Ghost blend showcases a dark Brazilian, Arapiraca Maduro wrapper, complemented by an aged Criollo 1998 Binder and carefully selected Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. Ghost is a rich, medium bodied cigar with a multi-layered flavor profile providing sweet and earthy undertones with lingering flavors of cocoa and cinnamon.
Wrapper: Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro
Gurkha’s Marquesa is a beautiful cigar reminiscent of the flavor and packaging of pre-embargo Cuba. The cigar has a vintage Cuban feel from the blend, which is a spicy “Cubanesque” flavor, to the packaging. The Marquesa features an earthy Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder and an Ometepe and Esteli Nicaragua filler resulting in a bold well-balanced medium body and spicy cigar.
