This is easily one of the best cigars I ve ever had. It smoked perfectly and tasted great. I experienced hints of pepper and woody Flavor s at the start and finished with a nice spicy taste. I smoked it down to the nub and was still getting great flavor.
I have had better, but all in all an OK smoke. Well constructed,with a good burn. Kind of harsh at the start but smoothed out nicely and quickly.
Bought a box last week and am smoking the second one now. Nice slow burn, draws great, looks great, awesome construction aside from having to touch up the burn a few times, very earthy and nutty. According to my count I'd give it a 95 and a thumbs up.
The Gurkha Evil Toro, sports a nice, cinnamon colored wrapper, and a near perfectly, flat cap. Although somewhat dry, the first half of the cigar, was flinty, with notes of oak in the nose. Throughout the second half of the burn of this Toro, hints of sweet vanilla, were noted on the pallet. Spicy notes, and oak, remained in the nose, and on the pallet, throughout the third portion as well. The Gurkha Evil, rated poorly throughout it's burn, as the ash was loose, and canoing, and tunneling of the cigar were an issue. The cigar had to be relit throughout the burn, also. Burn time for this cigar was 90 minutes.On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd rate this Toro a 4.5
