After writing last weeks column on the Clinton/Lewinsky cigar, I had to go out and try it for myself.
Honestly, I didn’t expect too much out of the cigar, despite enjoying all of the Gurkha cigars that I have had in the past. I just assumed the hype wouldn’t hold up to the actual smoke.
I was wrong – it did.
The second I lit up, I could tell this was a premium cigar that was going to go the distance. It was a great medium bodied smoke, with a lovely Connecticut shade wrapper that led to a nice soft almost velvety finish. The Honduran tobacco was very smooth and creamy and didn’t need a full meal before smoking – this is almost the perfect cigar to finish the night with.
At twelve dollars a stick, this is an excellent cigar to give as a gift even if the smoker hasn’t had a lot of experience with cigars. The cigar is actually infused with cognac which gives it an even more enjoyable and approachable taste for the regular and one off smoker alike.
I had consistent notes on this cigar after smoking it twice.
