First Third – A blast of roasted nuts followed by some spice and pepper start this third off. Few minutes in that hickory note comes out along with like a crème brûlée like note. The burn remains sharp and ash holds through the third.
Second Third – Hickory and smoked meats start this third followed by the nutty notes on the finish. The burn remains sharp and ash fell at the halfway point.
Final Third – This ends with a tangy cedar note mixed with the nuts and hickory wood like finish.
Wine – Trivento Malbec
Scotch – Johnnie Walker Double Black
I thought this Gurkha Kaizad is decent, but not one of my favorites from this line. The flavors are ok, but a bit muddled. The creme brûlée like note was really neat, then moving to meats which is the opposite end of the spectrum. I would have this again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.
