The Gurkha brand hosts an astonishingly varied collection of luxury cigars renowned the world over for their rich texture and taste. The Ghost series, in particular, has captivated cigar smokers, spawning three unique blends: the original Ghost Maduro, Ghost Connecticut, and the velvety Ghost Gold. The Ghost Gold Asura is a great example of the Ghost Gold line's smooth, balanced, and rich character.
The Gurkha Ghost Gold Asura is an eye-catching 6" x 54 stick loaded down with savory filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and the USA. These leaves are joined by a Criollo 98 binder leaf and a stunning Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrapper. You can expect over an hour of ghostly good times with this beauty.
The Gurkha Ghost Gold Asura delivers a refined, richly composed experience that maintains a pleasing medium-plus nature from start to finish. Black pepper and earth flavors form the basis for the smoke, which gradually unfurls to expose hints of cedar, cashew, and baking spice. The finish is serenely smooth with a joyous uptick in body and taste.
Whereas the Maduro-wrapped Gurkha Ghost series provides rich, dark flavor, and the Ghost Connecticut covers the milder side, the Ghost Gold Asura perfectly nestles into the middle to offer a bold-tasting, smooth-smoking experience.
