Gurkha 'Nautilus' Torpedo

Gurkha Nautilus cigar 1
Gurkha 'Nautilus' Torpedo. 6.5x53. Medium brown wrap. Good build with perfect lines and minimal veins. Questionable cut with some fraying of the torpedo tip. Good light. Strained draw pre-light. Moderate draw post-light. First half taste of rich spiced leaf, herbal, earthy. Second half is roasted leaf, dark wood. Draw closed slightly during the second half. Burn was even throughout. Ash was very clean and held near two inches.

This is a good cigar with moments of rich flavor in the first half, a good burn and ash. However, the cut was less than ideal, not a deal-breaker but worth noting. Also, the draw was too strained for my taste, starting tough, opening up just a bit, and then proving harsh to the band. A few missteps, but still a good cigar that I enjoyed. Recommended.
