Blind Cigar Review: Gurkha | Cellar Reserve 15 Year Toro
"Overall this was a decent flavor profile.. for nearly the whole stick. Even draws and bad burn knocked this stick down points even more as it caused an unpleasant smoking experience; at least it didn’t blow up. I’d have to sample another before making an ultimate decision on whether or not to put it in my naughty or nice list. " -John A. (Bostoneo)
