I have spent months “Ghost” hunting and had finally spotted one the other day. I had read about them and had yet to nab one. The focal point on this cigar is the holographic band with its edgy designs. A fun departure from other cigars classic designs. With its rich dark wrapper and bold lines, it’s a great looking stick. Smells a bit sweet and woody with a touch of spice at the foot. Cold draw has that sweetness mixed in with what tastes like chili powder.

First puffs– What stands out right away is a strong pepper flavor on top of that sweet cocoa tone. The draw is solid and the smoke is producing well.
First third– The flavors have shifted to the wood flavor with the spice settling towards the back of my palette. It has started out smooth and creamy so far.

Second third– There is now a strong leather flavor mixed in with earth as well. Cocoa is still present but the spice is just barely there.
Final third– Spices have reemerged along with the cocoa and wood. Still drawing very nicely and smoke is still pouring out.

Overall a spooky good smoke with great flavor shifts and presentation. A classic Gurkha that will not let you down in the flavor department. If your able to find, I suggest trying one.
