Review Notes: An extremely handsome cigar with its deep dark brown slightly reddish hued Brazilian wrapper. Nice purple and gold bands. Nice cedar wrap. Cigar was aged maybe 90 days. Gauge said barely good. Cigar felt heavy. Looked well packed. Prelight aroma was funky. Wine, earth, charcoal, and something clovey? What I smelt was what I got for flavors within this. Very different tasting. Sometimes I found myself enjoying the flavors of this cigar, sometimes I didn't. This may have been due to construction. The first 1/3 burnt straight with a slightly tight draw. The flavors during this time, after a nasty start, become enjoyable. The last 2/3 of this stick burnt unevenly. Draw needed constant massaging to open up. Flavors of the last 2/3 were more harsh and "charcoally" than the first 1/3. Reviews here indicate typical Gurkha inconsistency. Unless at gunpoint, no way I pay MSRP of $13/stick. I nicked a five pack on c-bid for $20. Tread catiously with these, but I think these may have some potential. I'll let you know in 2-3 months.
