Review Notes: I got a 5er of these on CBid about a year ago, and have now smoked through 3 of them. All and all, these are my least favorite of the Gurkha line that I've smoked, though that does not mean they are bad smokes in any way. Exceptionally toothy, they are fairly smooth smokes, as one would expect from a double maduro, and give a decent amount of chocolate to begin with. Towards the end they change, becoming increasingly spicey, and leather fans will be rewarded. I would give these a much higher rating if it weren't for the constuction issues. Every other Gurkha I've smoked has been flawlessly constructed. For me, its not that they burn unevenly, its that the wrapper cracks and the whole darn thing begins to unwind. The latest that I smoked, which had been sitting for a year, gave only minimal cracking and didn't affect the burn or flavor whatsoever. The first two were an absolute disaster, however. I guess the moral of the story is that these are great smokes to be had for not a lot of money on CBid, so long as you can be patient and let them sit.
