A great cigar to try this spring might be the Gurkha Master Select Robusto. This is an 6 x 52 stick. It offers a nice mild taste though it commands frequent puffs for proper performance and does need touching up as you smoke it. On the draw you get a nice Grassy hay earthy taste from it ending in your mouth quite cool. Near the last 3rd it goes a bit nutty and woodsy but I think that comes from it burning hot due to the amount of puffing . Cigar lasts for an 1 hour to the band point. It does miss something like a pepper or a zing in it for my taste, however for the Spring when having family over and having a glass on the terrace after dinner the cigar works.

I do think however it’s over priced and shouldn’t be in the premium section of cigars, I’ve had cigars costing 5 euro’s that I have enjoyed better than this Gurkha.
