Gurkha Templar True Cross
Templar are Gurkha's only all-60 ring line, proudly offered by the bundle at an exceedingly reasonable price - an unprecedented value, really, especially given Gurkha's track record for making some of the world's most highly-sought super premiums. Templar hails from Nicaragua with a unique blend of Ecuadorian Habano wrappers, Colombian binders and Nicaraguan longfillers. Templar delivers a smooth, medium-strength smoke with nice depth and a refined aroma. A discovery among budget smokes!
I experienced no problem with the burn, but the flavor is terrible. It is what I would expect from smoking wet grass after applying fertilizer. I tried letting them set in my humidor for a few weeks, but it didn t help. I am considering aging them in the open air and seeing if I can salvage them.
The smoke was excellent, mild, smooth, and creamy; the burn was even on all that I tried 10 so far ...BUT, I may have just gotten an old batch...on all 10, the wrapper and binder fell apart after 1/4 of the cigar was smoked. Great taste but won t be buying these again.
This is a smooth smokey Treat at a great price!! My new favorite every day treat!!!
