The Empire Series IV appears to be well-constructed, and it lacks any major flaws. I would expect this much from a Gurkha product. As with pretty much all of Gurkha’s offerings, this is one good looking cigar. Two bands spice up its appearance. The top band displays the Gurkha logo, while the band at the foot lets you know that you are smoking an Empire Series IV. The wrapper has a dark chocolate color with a nice oily sheen. There are very few small veins that are visible, and the cigar looks silky smooth. There are no soft spots, and the Series IV seems to be extremely well-packed with tobacco. Before lighting, it has a cold taste of tobacco and a spicy scent.

After being lit, the Gurkha Empire Series IV burns free of any major issues. Its ash is light gray and a tad on the flaky side. The draw is a bit tight, but it is manageable. The burn stays sharp on its own, making touch-ups unnecessary. No re-lights are needed.

As far as flavor, I’d call the Series IV consistent. It begins with a mix of wood, tobacco, and earth in the first third. Some spice soon follows in the second third, and it later gives way to more wood and toast. Wood and chocolate wrap things up in the final third. Medium-bodied seems like a perfect description for this stogie.

There's nothing amazing about the Empire Series IV, but it offers a very consistent smoking experience. Anyone who enjoys Gurkha cigars or would like to enjoy one of the brand’s offerings can do so with the Empire Series. At a price of around $4 per single, it’s an affordable stick that you can take a gamble on. It also comes in packs of five or boxes of 20.

The Gurkha Empire Series IV earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.
