Review Notes: What is with Gurkha's MSRP pricepoints? You'd think they made smokes just for CBid w/ those outrageous MSRPs; what B&M could possibly sell Mr. Hansotia's blends at those prices? When evaluating this smoke, as with all Gurkhas, pay attention to the average price paid on here, and make sure to always get them at auction. With that as an introduction, let me say this is a fine cigar for $4-7 per stick. It is beautiful from the band on down, and burns quite well, though it did require a handful of touch-ups, particularly toward the end. Leather and earth predominate this medium-bodied smoke. Though this apparently isn't a sungrown wrapper, the flavor coming off this Conn-Broadleaf maduro wrapped beauty reminds me of several of my favorite sungrowns, including the Fuente Cuban Beli Sungrown. This cigar had been aging for about a year, and the first half was VERY smooth, and the flavor was quite subtle. A bit of harshness crept in toward the end, but it never became offensive. All and all, Gurkha scores another success with the Legend series. Just don't look at that gaudy MSRP!
