Gurka

Ancient Warrior Special Edition, Brazilian Blend

Nice dark wrapper, good construction, moderately veined,

cap construction good

smooth, open draw

first few puffs a bit harsh, a bit bitter, improved a lot after a few weeks of humidification.

after smoking a bit, these smooth out a bit and taste better.

I think this cigar will benefit a lot from about 6 months of aging. That will smooth out the beginning and increase the complexity of the flavor.

Un-aged the flavor is a bit bland, but the smoke has a nice aroma. With a cigar of this gauge, marrying of the flavors of the leaves can make a lot of difference.
