Gurkha Ghost Review


Despite all the perks that come with being The Mayor of Cigars, it doesn’t pay the bills, so unfortunately I must have a day job, or should I say night job. I work the graveyard shift at a hotel that happens to haunted by the former managers husband who lived in room 302. You’re probably saying to yourself “Bull! I don’t believe in ghosts.” Or “What does this have to do with cigars?” Well, I’ve never seen “Arnold” the friendly ghost but something does keep creeping people out in room 302 and this is a perfect segway into my next cigar review of the Gurkha Ghost.

The Ghost is the newest line from Gurkha and was their giveaway cigar at this year’s Great Smoke. This smoke has a very dark Brazilian Arapirica maduro wrapper with a Dominican Criollo binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. I smoked the Toro size, which is right around 6×56 in size.

Now I will warn you, and as previously read in past reviews, Gurkha isn’t my favorite brand, but the Ghost may be a real winner. The cigar is consistent all the way through with a sweet, herbal flavor that is strong in the beginning, mellows out in the middle, and then picks up again at the end of the smoke. Another interesting characteristic of the Ghost is that it is very smoky; in fact between the flavor and the tons of smoke it puts off, it reminds me of a past Gar Shop Top Ten cigar, the Undercrown from Drew Estate. The Ghost has great construction and is very full bodied. On top of all this, the Ghost wins the award thus far for best band with its silver and black label. Overall I rate the Ghost 4 out of 5 flames and is our first contender for the 2013 Top Ten.

So if you’re planning your next ghost hunt or just kicking back watching a horror flick and need a heavy smoke, pick up a Gurkha Ghost and Happy Smoking!

The Mayor
