Hello everyone, todays cigar is the Gurkha “Dos Capos” Torpedo. I acquired this cigar in a five pack of Gurkha cigars from Cigar International. This barber-pole style cigar is quite impressive and I am looking forward to smoking it. Yeah I know, I am a sucker for gimmicks (LOL).
CIGAR MAKE UP:
WRAPPER: Cameroon & Brazilian
BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Dominican
Length/Ring: 6 X 53
My Observations: The cigar is simply amazing as in the case of most barber pole style cigars. It was well wrapped and has little non noticeable veins. On my finger touch inspection. I found no soft spots and I have to say that I am very impressed to say the least. I just hope the smoke is as good.
Cigar Label: Very cool, I love the artwork and as with most Gurkha cigar labels, an “eye” catcher. The label is made up of orange, gold, and black.
Snip: The “V” cut.
Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of earthy, and carmel, which was very sweet. I was pleasantly surprised with the up in your face flavors and I’m sure you will be too. The 2nd third continued with the earthy flavor, but eventually died down and was over taken by a rich coffee, which I found to be very pleasing. The last third consisted of coffee, chocolate, leather, and spice. I have to that I thoroughly enjoyed the flavors of this cigar but wished it had more power to it. So with that said this cigar is definitely a mild cigar at best. If I had box of these guys, I would definitely smoke them in the morning with my first cup of coffee.
Draw: Perfect as I am finding in all the Gurkha’s I have smoked.
Burn line: Great!
