"Nasty"

Review Notes: Bought some of these a year or more before this review. They were nasty then and are nasty now. Grassy to the point of making me sick. I smoke alot of medium to full cigars but I'm not opposed to a mild from time to time Ashton, Romeo Vintage, etc. That was what I expected from the add and the look of the cigar. I tried them when I got them, tried one a few months ago, and tried one now. These are the worst Gurkas I've had. I have even tried giving them to people who usually throw it out within the first 2 inches.

Review Notes: Aged 15 months. This was a horrible cigar. Mild, dry and grassy with another, very unpleasant, unidentifiable taste mixed in. The burn was fine, the draw was a little off. The yellow "vintage" wrapper was cheap looking.

"So"

Review Notes: After smoking a five pack of the vintage robusto, I wondered if it was the aging that made the last of a five pack taste exceptional after three mediocre sticks, So I bought a fiver of the toros. History is repeating itself. After four months in the humidor, this is a very average stick which is so "not Gurkha" (as the kids say). I will remember to let the rest age another 10-12 months like the robustos. The taste was quite mild with a little salt and a hint of cream for the palate. Why pay four bucks for something that tastes like a Gispert, or a half dz. other cigars that are half the price.

"Very Good"

Review Notes: Overall an enjoyable experience. Issues with construction, unraveling and lousy cap, keep this smoke from being top notch. A mild mourning smoke made to enjoy with coffee. The flavor was on the sweet side. The $9 msrp is twice what you should be able to find these for. Find them easily for $3-$4 a stick

Review Notes: To date, I have to say that most Gurkha cigars have left me wondering. The Vintage was kinda the same. I picked up a Gurkha sampler from CBid and with the exception on the Masters Select have not been that impressed. The cigar looked good but construction was just average with a thin wrapper that started coming apart. Ive had construction problems of one type or another with most Gurkha's so have to assume this will continue in the future. The taste was smooth but too mild and boring with little real overall character. The smoke was quite nice, burn a bit irregular requiring a touch up one time but just too mild for my taste. Its not at all a bad smoke; there are just better cigars to be had, RP Vintage 92, to name one. It is likely that this cigar came to me needing more conditioning. Well see what a few more months in the humi produce.
