Review Notes: I tried this again after a few months of sleep in the humi. Extraordinary difference. Draw and burn was even better, but the strong woody characteristics mellowed and I could taste all the spicy nuances and even some notes of roasted peanut, which were overridden by pure wood and cedar on the first one. With a little time, this thing smoked like a champ and flavor was much more discernable. Smoke had a nice hickory scent. Voluminous, white clouds of smoke and long, thick, layered ash. These Gurkhas just need a little time.

"Standup Cigar..."

Review Notes: This cigar was indeed beautiful to hold and look at, with its milky tan wrapper and bottom portion covered en cedro. It was toothy and chewy, supple and oily...felt great in my mouth. It lit and burnt perfectly and the draw was exceptional via bulls-eye punch hole. Tasted cedar and spice right from the beginning. Started to smooth out in the second 1/3, where other wood notes were present...maybe oak, along with the consistent cedar. The finish was also woody. The smoke was of a smooth medium-body and was very balanced throughout. As with the other Gurkhas I've smoked, this one had a pretty one-dimensional flavor pattern...mostly of the woody/cedary variety. I personally like more change and variety in flavor throughout a smoke, but this was still a pleasurable smoke all in all. It way overexceeded the $2.50 value I paid for it. I would definitely not buy these for the MSRP, however.
