Quick Smoke: Gurkha Wicked Indie Churchill

9 Jun 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Introduced as a new line by Gurkha, the Wicked Indie comes in four sizes, including the Churchill (7 x 50), the only one I’ve seen or tried. The Ecuadorian Habano wrapper covers a Nicaraguan binder and filler. And they combine for a nice pepper blast in the first third. Things settle down a bit after that with a little yeast and sweet tobacco. Smooth, short finish. I’d like to try this in the Robusto format where I think quicker development might make for a more interesting smoke.

Verdict = Buy.

    KEEPING YOU POSTED: Defeat for Prop. 29 is still within sight, but the margin is shrinking. As of 4 p.m. Friday, the California Secretary of State's office showed a little over 1 million votes still to be counted. The margin was under 1 percentage point and only 37,124 votes. However, outstanding votes from Los Angeles and San Diego counties, where the proposition lost by relatively high margins, have yet to be counted. If the voting remains so close at the end, a recount is almost certain.
