"True Tobacco Taste"

Review Notes: Great looking cigar first of all. Nice construction with excellent burn. No complexity, not much hints of anything aside from amaretto from time to time. I did enjoy the consistent, medium bodied tobacco flavor. Different experience from the perfecto.

"Doesn't live up to the hype"

Review Notes: Initial impression was good; even roll, no obvious hard or soft spots, smooth wrapper. Aroma was unremarkable, though pleasant. I noticed the "soapy" flavors mentioned by other reviewers, but it didn't show up before the 2nd half of the cigar. Nice and creamy at first, good burn (only 1 or 2 minor touch-ups needed) with some toast underlying the spice. Fell off rapidly, and became nasty during the finish. I may just leave the rest of the 5-pack for some serious aging, and check in on them in 6 months or so. I am SO glad I didn't pay anything near retail. Got them in an assortment which averaged ~$6 each, and they're ok at that price.

"Very good smoke"

Review Notes: The Legend is a pretty good smoke, but not great and defently not worth the price tag.I enjoy most of the Gurkha lines and some better than this line. I don't get all the hype for this one. The construction on the few i've have was very good with no burn issues of plug problems at all. The flavor is pretty good too. To me it's earthy and toasty with some complexity to it. It's just not worth the big price tag.

"Great flavor. Poor construction."

Review Notes: Nice prelight aroma. Sort of ugly, veiny, shiny, loose rolled wrapper. Would not light properly at first. Slight plug just below where I clipped so I clipped again. Once she got going the flavor was great but this thing burned so unevenly that it turned out to be a major pain in the "bullocks". Major "welds" from the Colibriu every 10 minutes probably added another buck to the cost of this in butane. Flavor was fine. Finish was fine. Gobs of smoke for about an hour and 40 minutes. Hearty, robust, med to full earthy slight sweet flavor almost made up for construction. (made a boo-boo 2 reviews back on this page...that review should have been for the Gurkha Legend Pyramid.)

"Color me not impressed"

Review Notes: For the price and hype this cigar demands, I expected far better. This is a solid smooth mild-med bodied smoke, with some earthy and toasty notes. I also noted the bizarre almost "soapy" flavor in a couple of spots that Scotty did. This disappoints me, as Gurkha is one of my absolute favorite brands.
