Gurkha is perhaps best known for offering a wide variety of luxuriously smooth, medium-bodied favorites. However, the Gurkha Nicaragua Series shows the brand is no stranger to the bolder side of cigars. Ranking as one of Gurkha's most daring smokes yet, the Gurkha Nicaragua Series Magnum is a collaborative effort with the folks at Aganorsa Leaf that blows the doors off any Gurkha cigar before it.
The Gurkha Nicaragua Series Magnum is a 6" x 60 Gordo handcrafted at Aganorsa Leaf's premier TABSA factory in Nicaragua. The blend uses a thick core of Aganorsa Leaf's rich Nicaraguan Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 filler tobaccos, as well as a Corojo 99 double binder. Surrounding the savory mixture is a beautifully textured Corojo 99 Clara wrapper.
The Gurkha Nicaraguan Series Magnum grabs hold of the senses right from the get-go with sweeping strokes of pepper and earth notes. Leathery nuances emerge alongside hints of walnut and almond flavors. Splashes of sweet floral, berry and spice enhance the ever-evolving complexity, as creamy undertones balance a vigorously rewarding finish.
Whether a fan of Gurkha, Aganorsa Leaf, or Nicaraguan tobacco, the Gurkha Nicaragua Series Magnum offers a luxuriously bold take on what makes a great Nicaraguan Puro. The voluptuous Gurkha Nicaragua Series Magnum isn't for all tastes. However, it's a treat not to be missed for the experienced palate searching for new Puros to conquer.
