Review Notes: Based on the review parameters on this site, this cigar would score above-average in three categories: Appearance, construction, and value. Unfortunately, it failed miserably in the other two: Flavor and overall smoking experience. I now know what smoking straw would taste like. I guess you get what you pay for.

Review Notes: Musty paper! My son and I smoked one of these and both said we could not identify the flavor. We thought it tasted like something we had smelled before but not tasted. After 1/3 I said "it taste like the musty Christmas decorations smell" He said "exactly"! However, I would smoke it again as it was interesting!

Review Notes: Handsome. Relatively mild to maybe the fringe of medium in body. Tasty flavors. Many floral notes to this with some creamy wood and earth. I got a nice deal on these paying just under $3 per stick (Never pay top pop for anything Gurkha...score Gurkha's cheap on C-Bid) These arrived from C-bid horribly dry. They took nearly 6 months to reach a correct moisture level. Both bands were difficult to remove. I smoked it up to each one hoping the heat would help. It did somewhat. This leads me to believe that dualkarn (his bands slid off) smoked a greenie hence the poor experience and low score. Draw was tight but thanks to my excellent poker from my Mother-in-law and some massaging I overcame it. Careful these wrappers are fragile. Pay $4-ish/stick and I think you'll be happy with these. Not for Lowland Gorillas except maybe for breakfast.

"Not a great Gurkha"

Review Notes: This seems to be a cast-off Gurkha- some sort of seconds. It is definitely not even in the same ballpark of their better offerings. The flavor was weak, simple and generally uninteresting. On a more positive note, the two wrappers slide off easily (brand and "vintage" tags) and there isn't a foul or bitter aftertaste.

Review Notes: I bought a bunch when they came out and although I thought I had been swindled after the first couple due to brittle wrappers and a harsh beginning, they have turned into something I like every now and again. This cigar makes me think I'm smoking a bunch of rose petals. Very cool.
