Handcrafted in the beautiful country of the Dominican Republic, the Gurkha Prestige Torpedo Connecticut (6" x 54) cigar is a smooth masterpiece and when K. Hansotia named this beauty Prestige, he must have known that his small production blend was so special that it would live up to its name, afterall his repuation is on the line. Prestige is a treasure among cigars inside and out, starting with premium grade Dominican long fillers tethered with an Indonesian binder, and meticulously rolled inside a creamy, light-brown Connecticut wrapper. Hurry, though, only 1,000 boxes of Prestige were made so you better get yours soon! We all know the saying, "the early bird gets the worm."
This cigar was falling apart immediately. I left the band on just to keep the entire wrapper from falling off. I wasn't smoking in windy conditions. It had no taste to speak about, just smoke in my mouth. I can't believe i have a box of these. I was looking for a smooth quality, mild cigar. I went for the promo of the free lighter, hopefully that will work.
