Review Notes: I bought this one at a very low price as a part of one of the online auction sites. I enjoy cameroon wrappers and had heard this one is tough to beat for the price. In general my experience has been mixed with Gurkha in the past. They seem to do many things right and many things wrong. It is average looking and the box press is done correctly. Nice draw and a great burn. This cigar starts out very nicely with some great nutty flavors and a hint of cream. I was enjoying this cigar greatly and it was soon going to venture into my top 25, until I hit the final third. At that time I was hit with a terrible chemical taste. I suffered though it and even cleared my palate, but it would not go away. Since then I have had a dozen more of these and every time I get the same problem. I brought it up to another friend of mine and he experienced the same issue. This simply knocks it out of a super value, but I would like to give it credit for the first 2/3rds. It is a wonderful value and great flavor, until that final third. So now, I simply pull a Winston Churchill and put it out as I near the band. This one because of the value and early flavor still has a place in my humidor.
