Review Notes: I swear that almost every Gurkha I've had suffers from a tight draw. This was no exception. It had a rustic appearance and a very nice pre-light aroma. It was med/full bodied, but the taste was just not there. An earthy, sweet flavor that was completely one-dimensional that stayed that way through the length of the cigar. After a 1/4 way in, it developed a runner that needed constant spot-welding up until the end. For the money, this is not worth it both in taste and construction, and anymore, I think Gurkha is all about brand name rather than quality. I can't tell you ow many Gurkhas I've had and unfortunately the majority of them end up being sub-par. For the prices they charge, that doesn't wash.
