Review Notes: I haven't read a ton about Gurkha, other than it is a boutique brand, it is a more expensive than some smokes, and it generally gets good reviews. After my experience, I believe the reviews are totally just and deserved. The cigar is worth every dollar paid, and at the $3.20 I paid,that is one of the best values of which I am aware. The cigar is very exotic looking- a nice dark brown wrapper with the beautiful band that exudes an eastern Asian vibe. The cigar is totally well-named as Gurkha. No substantial veins, great rectacular shape, firm feel, and a perferct draw for me (just enough resistance) seem to exhibit that the cigar was constructly very well. On pre-light, I knew I was in for something interesting. The wrapper didn't smell overly spicy, but a draw through the cigar made me cough and nearly took my breath away from the spice. I must admit I was a little worried about lighting this cigar. Upon lighting, however, I immediately got a burst of cumin, black pepper, a touch of licorice/anise over a base flavor of very dark, rich coffee. I was wowed with the complexity and deliciious taste. Coupled with the great cup of Kona coffee I was drinking, the taste was amazing. That flavor stayed solid through the first 1/2 of the cigar. The cigar then lost most of the licorce/anise, and developed a nice cayenne spiciness and the coffee bitterness intensified. The spice flirted in and out until about the final inch of the cigar. The spice kicked it up, and I would have burned my fingers smoking the cigar had the smoke not gotten too hot. I got quite a good buzz from this smoke. The ash hung on for about 2.5 inches prior to dropping. The smoke burned razor sharp, and smelled very spicy and deep. I must say, if I could start every day with a cup of Kona and a Gurkha Class Regent, I would be king of the world in a matter of weeks. Very complex, spicy, delicious, and intoxicating. This is probably the most flavor and satisfying smoke I have smoked up to this point. Awesome smoke that I can't say enough great things about.

Review Notes: This cigar was ok, not good not great, just ok, I did not like the squareness but then again i did buy it. I did not let this sit in my humidor, i smoked it at the shop and probally will not buy this again. Great appearance and construction. The draw left something to be desierd but most box pressed sticks that i have smoked have this probelm (except for CAO).
