Once lit, the Nepalese Warrior burns solidly for the most part.  It has a nice, solid ash and a good draw.  You may find yourself relighting a couple times, though.  As for the flavors, there are plenty of them.  You get some spicy notes, as well as some chocolate, coffee and nutty flavors.  From time to time the familiar blueberry taste comes into play that was detected from the cold taste prior to lighting.  You can also find a bit of cinnamon, as well as earthier, leathery flavors.  Unfortunately, the cigar doesn’t end quite as it should, as there is an unpleasant, harsh flavor that dominates the final third.  Your mileage may vary, though.

Overall, the Class Regent Nepalese Warrior is a good smoke.  It has tons of flavors, with the only real knock on it being the harshness towards the end.  As for the price, if you shop around enough, you can find them on an average of $4 per stick, with a suggested retail price of around $10 per stick, and they usually come in bundles of 15.  If you are a fan of Gurkha cigars, you should really give this one a shot, and the same can be said for those who enjoy Cameroon wrappers.  The Gurkha Class Regent Nepalese Warrior receives 3.5 out of four stars.


Gurkha Grand Master Dos Capas


Those who love flashy things and enjoy showing off from time to time will love the Grand Master Dos Capas from Gurkha.  This cigar is not only huge in size, but huge in the “look at me” factor as well.  The Grand Master moniker fits this stogie well if you just consider its appearance.  As for the “Dos Capas” part, that stands for two wrappers in English, as this cigar is constructed of two different colored wrappers that adorn its body and give it a cool candy cane look.  Don’t be fooled by its large size, though, as it really has more bark than bite when it comes to flavor, and it is considered to be a medium-bodied cigar.

The Gurkha Grand Master Dos Capas is a whopping 8.5x52 in size.  Needless to say, this is one cigar that should take you a while to burn through.  It has a filler that is a blend of tobacco from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.  Its binder is Nicaraguan as well.  The wrappers that intertwine to give the cigar its unique candy cane appearance are a combination of a dark Brazilian Habana 2000 leaf and a Cameroon leaf.
