Review Notes: There are so many Gurkhas that it's hard to know which to start sampling with. I really like the Doble Maduro, so I thought I'd try these when they came up as a weekly special. I let them sit for three weeks, and I really think they need more idle time. The wrapper seemed a bit fragile, but it held up just fine. I didn't expect the peppery start, but it was quite enjoyable. It mellowed almost immediately afterward and provided a toasty flavor that lasted the rest of the smoke. The pepper flavor returned albeit briefly. The billing of "Cuban-esque" is quite accurate in the taste and body. It didn't have a "perfect" burn, but no adjustments were necessary. I grabbed this as a quick smoke, but had to leave almost 2" behind after 50 minutes. This was better than expected, and I look forward to the others when they age more.
