"Smooth and Relaxing"

Review Notes: I typically prefer a fuller-bodied cigar but really enjoyed this offering from Gurkha. Wrapper was a medium brown hue with some veins and bumps. Had a solid, firm feel. Comes in a cedar sleeve which results in pre-light aromas of cedar, spice and wood. Maintains a fairly solid, but flakey light gray ash. Burn is strong throughout with tons of smoke. However, a few touch-ups needed to even things out. Flavor profile leans to the mild side with smooth and creamy notes of latte, cocoa, vanilla bean, nuts and some faint spice. Remains very smooth and easy smoking down to the nub. Overall an enjoyable, laid-back smoke with some nice complexity.

"A Limited Success"

Review Notes: A good cigar in most respects, but nothing to justify the MSRP. For most Gurkha's you never come close to that, especially on c-bid. I rated this over a year ago and I can't say this cigar improved with age. The burn and draw were as good as on any Gurkha, I've ever had. The taste was not that exciting, a mild experience with some hints of nuts, wood and ash. I smoked it around a campfire and had a good sipping whiskey that really improved the cigar. If you can get these for close to $3, go for it. I wouldn't pay much more.

Review Notes: Medium smoke, great construction, easy draw. Ash held well with a light grey color and speckled with white. Taste was medium with a hint of coffee, slightly bitter at end but well worth 3.00 bucks. good cigar overall.

"Passable"

Review Notes: The Gurkha Expedition Toro is a good enough cigar for most brands but only passable for a Gurkha. It's still better than the Vintage Robusto. Like most raters have mentioned the problem is the flavor. The taste holds up for about half the cigar and then becomes bitter towards the finish. I will say that it's a well built cigar and burned like a champ. I didn't experience any draw problems on the 5-pack I smoked. I just missed that kick-butt Gurkha taste.
