Gurkha Evil XO cigars offer you a powerhouse of a smoke blended with Nicaraguan longfillers and Dominican binder rolled dark oily Brazilian wrappers. Even Gurkha Cigars creator Kaizad Hansotia says, This cigar is pure evil. That said, one of the nicer thing about these muscular cigars is the price. The smoke is characteristically smooth and earthy with notes of pepper, cedar and nuts on a woody finish. You may also find hints of anise and some fruity accents in the mix. A must-try for full-bodied fans!
Sadly Gurkha has not met my expectations more than once; Ancient Warrior, Royal Reserve, or Vintage Cameroon, all fell short on flavorful for the price they cost. However I was heartily uplifted by this particular stick from Gurkha. It reminded me of the Brick House Mighty Mighty, but just a little more mild. I really liked it and went out and picked up a few more from my local B&M.
