The Gurkha Ghost is one of the most popular cigars released by the Nicaragua based Gurkha Cigar Group. Gurkha’s renowned marketing and execution of their premium cigars does not skip out on the affordable Ghost series. The super dark Gurkha Ghost’s sleek laser etched holographic silver band and stylish packaging will appeal to your inner Goth.
Gurkha Ghost Asura premium cigars use only the finest select tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic and aged Dominican Criollo 1998 binder encased in an oily brown Arapiraca Maduro wrapper from Brazil. The medium to full-bodied Gurkha Ghost cigar consistently releases aromatics of leather, anise, and pepper. It also leaves flavors of cocoa, nuts and cinnamon, with hints of sweetness and earthiness, on the palate.
This cigar produces an abundant amount of smoke. More so than probably any other cigar. Like a floating apparition, Gurkha Ghost’s thick volume of billowy smoke is mesmerizing. When you light up a Ghost you awaken your spiritual senses.
The term “cleanse the palate” comes from the French and is an essential part of the country’s cuisine. You've probably heard of the sorbet course, which is a light frozen dessert served between the rich courses. But, after dinner, you may want to prep your palate for a relaxing cigar.
An aperitif of Pastis, an anise liqueur from France will enliven and refresh the palate. Pastis is not like the black licorice of your childhood, but a sophisticated aromatic adult experience. Ricard Pastis from Marseille is a fine example. At entry, the intensely bitter taste of anise stimulates and cleanses the palate. It tends to evolve mid-way through the tasting, releasing a zest of roots and woodsy botanicals. This certainly makes for a memorable imbibing and a great way to prepare for a memorable smoke, such as the Gurkha Ghost Asura.
