Gurkha-Black Dragon's are simply awesome. Like my dream lady Sophia Loren they are sultry, full bodied and well rounded.

Behold, the Black Dragon.
Few cigars can match the caliber of Gurkha handmade cigars. Considered to be some of the world's finest and most prestigious super-premiums, the Gurkha brand represents a small-batch selection of ultra-elusive cigars that routinely receive top ratings in addition to 'Best of the Best' honors from the Robb Report.
Always pushing the envelope with exotic, high-end blends, Gurkha got another trick up its mighty sleeve, and it's called the Black Dragon.
Dressed in a dark and toothy, 5-year old Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, the Black Dragon hails from Honduras and combines a vintage mixture of Dominican long-leaf tobaccos secured within a Cameroon binder. The smoke is thick and chewy, with a rich, leathery core and elegant hints of earth, complemented by an assortment of sweet spices on the finish. Medium in body and complex, yet buttery smooth, the Black Dragon is unlike any Gurkha you've tried before.
Wowzer, you know a great cigar about two minutes into the burn. Rocky Patel-Olde World Reserve will meet they standards set by any cigar lover!

"Available in your choice of three different wrapper - Maduro, Connecticut and Corojo - Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve cigars are hand-rolled using the most premium Honduran and Nicaraguan leaves available giving the cigar medium to full body flavor that Mr. Patel is so famous for. And each wrapper leaf gives the cigar its own uniqueness and complexity. The Maduro wrapper earned itself the #8 spot on Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of the Year in 2009."
