Another fantastic entry into the legendary Gurkha
line-up, the Gurkha Royal Challenge XO is a delightfully smooth and savory
smoke that will fit into any starting rotation with astonishing ease. The Royal
Challenge XO is simply one of the most rewarding cigar smoking journeys Gurkha
has ever delivered!
The 6.0" x 60 Gurkha Royal Challenge XO begins with
a core of Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos that are expertly fused into
a lush package held firm by a thick Honduran Habano binder leaf. A gorgeous
Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf surrounds it all, making a luxurious
hour or so smoke.
Once the Gurkha Royal Challenge XO is set to
flame, the palate is immersed in silky wood and vanilla flavors which are soon
joined by hints of hazelnuts and cream. A toasty undertone meets with splashes
of pepper and a lightly sweet zest that brings the mild-to-medium bodied
adventure to a most satisfying close.
Supple, balanced and impeccably constructed, the
Gurkha Royal Challenge XO is a fine choice for cigar enthusiasts of all levels
and should be a welcomed addition to most humidors. Enjoy this succulent treat
anytime with a wide range of delicious beverages no matter morning, Noon or
