.
This hefty 54 by 7 and 1/2 inch churchill has a pleasant leathery looking five year-old Cameroon wrapper, along with Nicaraguan and Peruvian longfillers and bound by a Nicaraguan binder. Priced at around $11 a stick, it makes for a nice special occasion smoke with it's smooth and consistent chocolatey and wheaty taste with some tart notes and a molassas sweet finish. This is one cigar whose flavors get better and better as you smoke it.
.
Recommend? Yes!

Gurkha's are so hit or miss.. I'm glad you got one that was a hit.

I've been smoking the Perfectos for about a year now and love them. This is a delicious cigar

Barry- I totally agree with you. I buy very few Gurkhas for that reason.

Paul- I love the shape of the perfectos and didn't know that this cigar also came that way. Nice to hear someone have the same experience as me.
