Gurkha bilked as most expensive cigar...

While having done down time I turned on Viceland’s “Most Expensiveist,” the first episode shows some sales folks trying to convince rapper 2Chainz, that 2 cigars from Gurkha are the priciest and best cigars. Dropping names like Michael Jordan.

So sad.

Have any of you run into people that actually smoke Gurkhas by choice rather than, “damn I might as well try this stick, as I have avoided it for a long long time. How bad could it be?”

Billed was autocorrected by my phone to bilked. Even Siri knows what a joke this is.

In my newness to the world of cigars, the Gurkha Ghost is the only one I've intentionally bought multiple times.
I once bought a 20 count sampler on the devil's site and soon realized after I started smoking through it why I wasn't outbid on it.

I've got a buddy that loves em. Hand him a gurkha and it's like you gave him the keys to a new vette. He's a huge RP fan too.. so take that for what it's worth..

The only one that’s decent is The Edge

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

No accounting for taste, got a buddy who loves VS, says they get really good on the third day,,, he Smokes one cigar for a week.
There’s been a couple Gurkha’s I’ve tried that were decent, most have been meh and a few have been downright nasty.
I liked the Edge Sumatra and the Sun Grown, would probably even buy some if Nish wasn’t such a d*****

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

I do not currently have any Ghurkas in my stash....but

Of the 1500 or so different Ghurkas out there, I would actually seek out and smoke about 3 again. The Ghost qualifies as one.

I agree that the Edge is one of the only RP cigars I have enjoyed.

VS is a complete waste of tobacco. At least they're not wasting "good" tobacco.

Just my $0.02.
