Alright, let's address the elephant in the room first. Shaggy? What the heck does that mean?
If you look closely at the foot of this cigar it has a "shaggy" bottom. The foot has exposed filler tobacco, very distinctive and very smart for someone who is looking to get a taste of the filler tobacco before the wrapper gets involved in forming the cigars profile. In other words, when you light this cigar, you'll first taste just the filler tobacco, then as the burn progresses the wrapper will start to contribute to the flavor offering an awesome experience that's a throw back and nod to Cuban tradition.
The wrapper itself is among the most prized in the world. Aged 8 years and from the Dominican Republic, once that wrapper starts to contribute to the flavor of these Gurkha cigars, you'll likely pick up tobacco, oak, maybe even some softer vanilla-notes in the burn.
A great experience for the cigar fan who thought they'd tried everything, these sticks are a must-have for the true aficionado.
