The flavors in the Ninja Torpedo are, in a word, complex. The cigar offers a wide variety of flavors that make it a real joy to smoke. It begins with earth, and then shifts toward some woody notes. The wood then transitions into a bit of a bold pepper flavor to change things up. The most enjoyable flavor, chocolate, comes next. There are also plenty of sweet and creamy notes that jump in towards the end.

The Gurkha Ninja's complexity was impressive. It never got bland, and the flavors interchanged frequently. Not only did the Ninja Torpedo look good, but it delivered with a perfect burn as well. As stated earlier, Gurkha's are usually expensive, but the Ninja does not follow in that tradition. It's quite affordable, and a single costs around $5 to $6. That's a nice surprise, especially when a normally expensive brand comes at such a bargain. You can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 20. It's a good pick for beginners or those who enjoy cigars with a lot of flavor. If you always wanted to get your hands on a Gurkha but didn't due to price, the Ninja Torpedo finally gives you the opportunity to give the flashy brand a try. Pick one up and have it with a cup of coffee in the morning.

The Gurkha Ninja Torpedo earns a strong rating of 3.5 out of four stars for its complexity and value.
