"Rich, sweet, mild, maduro."

Review Notes: Found this heavy well packed cigar to be somewhat mild to the fringe of medium in body (I like med. to fringe of full) and very, very, sweet tasting. Similar to a Romeo y Juliet maduro. However, unlike the RyJ maduro, the sweetness was tempered nicely by notes of spice and cocoa making it somewhat rich in its' flavor profile. Burn was slightly uneven but self correcting. Draw was too tight for first half even with massaging and poking. Thankfully, the wrapper was tough and held up to my attempts to loosen up the draw. Draw finally improved in the second half. I could see these cigars becoming a morning maduro or a sweet afternoon change of pace for veteran smokers and a nice after dinner cigar for those still finding their cigar niche. I'd lay 10 or so of these down now in your box while they can be scored cheaply. They are good now but I feel they have some wonderful characteristics (densely packed and rich flavors) to become fantastic with aging. Overall, this pleasant, relaxing, change of pace cigar lasted about an hour and 40 minutes. I nabbed a 10 pack on c-bid for $28. At $2.80 a throw an excellent value. At the MSRP of $4 a solid value.

Review Notes: I've been smoking these now for about six months and they still have a firm hold as my No. 1 From the toothy oily wrapper to the smooth draw down to slow even burn. For the price they can't be beat. But I find mine to be mild to medium in flavor, not nearly as strong as a C.A.O. Italia. Great Ash...Great Smoke

Review Notes: This cigar is in my top 5 smokes so far. It has a tough wrapper and the draw was perfect. It has a sweet earthy chocolate type tobacco taste. Very smooth on the palate. I highly recommend you try one!

Review Notes: A very well made cigar that is geared more for the seasoned smoker. Leathery texture and fairly oily wrapper. This cigar is probably medium to full body with power enough to cleanse the sinuses. I compare this to a C.A.O Italia or Mx2. A tasty smoke! Great deal from Cigars International for those who are wondering what the hell CI is!

Review Notes: What!? Nobody else saw TEAM America? Anywho... Tasty treat about sums this up. This boutique brand offers a nice prelight bouquet of cedar, leather and cow turds so you know it wont be bad. Looks good too. Nice bright orange and gold band against a black walking stick - if they weren't so good we could give them out to the kiddies for Halloween. Heck, there's even a dude on the band with a knife threatening your cigar-poaching friends to stay away. It is a very rich maduro with a great flavor profile. It is a little salty and sweet on the tongue with boatloads of creamy white smoke and delicious, yet subtle, vanilla-like aroma. No wonder these things are getting noticed - and more pricey and difficult to get. Ya gotta love CI for bringing it to our attention though - I love those guys. I would say this is the best of the Gurkha line to date. It offers much more to the smoker in terms of being rewarded. "Im Full" is no longer just a tag line for Taco Bell. Sorry Chihuahua - back to the pound for you. If you can get these - do it. The maduro wrapper opens up a whole new experience and enhances the Gurkha blend finally bringing it up to where it belongs - in my humidor. If you're able, let them sit for a few months because they really age well and taste even better. Or is it more betterer? Most bestest? You be the judge.
