"AWESOME yet middling."

Review Notes: Perfecto size. Not Torpedo. (I think Gurkha calls it the Anniverserio?) Sexy looking stick. The flavors in these at times is AWESOME. Body can be mild to fringe of full. There are also times when you wonder if someone switched cigars on you. Note that the flavor (slightly sweet tobacco base with a lot of other flavors happening ranging from nutmeg to coffee, to dark chocolate, to earth to leather) is always above average but there are times when these will literally blow you away. There are also times when it becomes tasteless for a while. As the Who would sing..."I Can't Explain". This happened (again)when I grabbed a well seasoned stick (6-7 mos. box time) my last time out with this. Even though Gurkha says these are aged 8 years I remember smoking one right away and it tasted young. Make sure you lay these down a while. Wouldn't you do that anyway with a stick that MSRP's at $10-15 anyway? Burn has been mostly razor sharp. Draw can be tight but it usuallly ends up producing gobs of smoke with some massaging. Tread catiously, but I have to recommend these for the awesome half of flavor you'll get with these. I usually score these on c-bid for about $5.50/stick. The value rating will be inflated because of that.

Review Notes: My first Gurka was really good. My buddie Mark gave it to me as consolation for getting a speeding ticket. Almost made me feel better. First time at sex was better. Good medium to heavy smoke-great draw-unique flavor- good ash but not as good as the first ass.

Review Notes: the cigar i got as part of a bundle on cigars international, it was probably one of the worse/defective looking cigars. it had a smooth wrapper but some cosmetic defects. I question their QA process. Anyhow, I smoked the cigar regardless of appearance. the beginning had some youthful smoothness, combined with earthy semi peppery flavors. the burn was very uneven, had to correct the cigar a handful of times. until the last 1/2 of the cigar, burn was much more even, intensified with spices, earthy and woody flavors. much more intense but smooth. the cap was falling apart after my cut, again I must reiterate if I had another probably a much better cigar, but due to the circumstance I have to say this was a very negative representation of Ghurka cigars. A nice solid construction, with lots of smoke, but not on par in the cosmetic department. Definitely it should be a $10 cigar at best.

Review Notes: Very surprised with the negative reviews. I bought a sampler with 3 Legend Anniversarios and they are among my favorite. A Medium smoke type of guy who loves flavor in almost all forms (except woodsy), this cigar is one of my favorite to date. The aging left a wonderful chance to taste the rich complexity of this cigar. While not as complex as the Regent, this baby smoked very well but requires your full attention for an even burn.
