The Gurkha Black Dragon story began in 2006 with
decades-old tobaccos and rare camel-bone boxes that carried an unattainable
price tag. A simple reworking of the tobaccos and much lower price finally
brought the much sought after cigar to the masses, making the Black Dragon
Torpedo a grand discovery for any aficionado.
The Gurkha Black Dragon Torpedo is a 6 ½” x 52
beauty that is made in Honduras using a truly unique blend of aged tobaccos.
Filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic are stuffed into a toothy Cameroon
binder leaf to form the delicious core. A dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
wrapper leaf that is simply oozing with luscious goodness crowns it all to
complete the over-an-hour smoke.
First light of the Black Dragon Torpedo brings
copious amounts of spice flavors that are led by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Leather and earth nuances parade down the length of the medium-to-full bodied
smoke while spicy bursts of pepper keep things lively. Cocoa and creamy cedar
undertones tantalize in the final stretch to the voluptuously smooth and tangy
The Gurkha Black Dragon Torpedo is a magnificent
smoke for any connoisseur in search of a tasty cigar with class, style and
distinction. Available in stunning leather and velvet boxes of 20 cigars, the
Gurkha Black Dragon Torpedo is one to be cherished.
