527. Gurkha Ninja Knife Robusto Aged 2015

From my own collection.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Brazilian Mata Fina Maduro
Binder: Dominican Republic Criollo
Filler: Nicaraguan & Dominican Republic

Size: 5×52, Robusto.

Wrapper: Coffee bean, oily and silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Red pepper and dark chocolate.

1st third: Starts with a dark chocolate, espresso, earthy sweetness and red pepper spice.

2nd third: The flavours get pretty bitter, which isn’t a surprise with notes of dark chocolate and espresso.

Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable gray ash.

Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a medium heat feel on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Reverts back to the same flavours as part 1.

Duration: 20:35-22:05, 1h 30 min.

Conclusion: A full bodied cigar with a full strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 86 point cigar.
