The Gurkha Ghost Asura is a mind-blowingly
delicious smoke that should be in your humidor! The Asura name harkens back to
Hinduism, as the Asura are prominent and often rather nasty deities in Hindu
culture and myth. No matter the origins of the name, Gurkha’s Ghost Asura
cigars are absolutely divine!
The sumptuous 6” x 54 Asura begins with a meaty
core of filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. With the
addition of a Criollo 98 binder leaf and an extravagant Arapiraka Maduro
wrapper from Brazil, the stick emerges as a thrillingly flavorful and smooth
odyssey that lasts well beyond the hour mark.
The Ghost Asura begins with a steady wave of earth
and pepper flavors that are sweetened by splashes of cocoa, cinnamon and
nougat. The smoke is medium-bodied with a more adventurous spirit on the back
end that leads to a truly exquisite finale.
The Gurkha Ghost Asura is a cigar that deserves a
spot in your rotation and will satisfy the tastes of almost any connoisseur
with its lushly pronounced flavor and silky smooth character. Conveniently
boxed with a lucky 21 cigars, the Ghost Asura is ideal for special occasions or
for stocking up. Give yourself a bonus and enjoy with the lively Brazilian take
on Rum, Cachaca to draw out the supple flavors of this amazing smoke.
