Review Notes: Wrapper cracked and pealed. Tasted great but the wrapper has me stumped as to whether or not to try again. Very tight draw.

Review Notes: The wrapper cracked and began to peel as soon as I cut this cigar. Over time wrapper progressively fell apart while I was smoking it. Tough to light but remains lit without much trouble. Firm draw. Spicy and has a distinct flavor of black pepper but not much else. Full bodied but a little too potent. I prefer more mellow full-bodied cigars. Finish is very smooth, however, which is a nice offset to the somewhat overbearing spiciness. Very uneven burn. I suspect a monkey put this together: altogether the construction is shoddy despite its rich appearance. Midway through the cigar, all flavor is lost and it becomes extremely bland. I got bored and didn’t even bother finishing it. Instead I curled up in a ball in the corner of the room and died of sadness.

"Strong, Smooth but not well-built"

Review Notes: First, let me just say I'm not a big smoker of full-powered cigars, though I do like them occasionally. Second I did enjoy this stick. It was stong but smooth. The biggest problem was with the thin wrapper but it was nothing horrible. The burn and draw were pretty good and the price at a little over three bucks a pop wastn't bad either. So if you like strong cigars and don't mind the wrapper peelings, I highly recommend these.

"Cons outweigh pros"

Review Notes: Pros: Nice ligero flavor, good draw, nice label, even burn and a white ash. Cons: I had terrible issues with the wrapper falling apart. It split when I pulled the lower band off, then it cracked when I cut it, later on the wrapper tore again when I removed the main band and it fell apart in various other places throughout the smoke. I have two more and will have to judge them later, but this completely unacceptable. This was more hassle than it was pleasing.

"Far too tight"

Review Notes: Misglued label tore of portion of the wrapper, as well as some obvious creases. At least the label is handsome. The wrapper does not extend to cover all of the binder and filler. This really looks like a second rate cigar in expensive packaging. There is difficulty with the initial lighting. Very difficult to draw. I then cut the footing all the way off and will keep the cigar from unrolling with saliva. No improvement. I tried squeezing to loosen an air passage. It is very tightly rolled. It gives as much as you would expect a brick to. Can not comment on the flavor, as I never really got any smoke. This is a dud. Does Gurka give a refund? Have them send me an e-mail. I've never had a cigar where everything is wrong before this evening. To the mulch pile it goes.
