Full disclosure: I don’t particularly like Gurkhas. When I first heard about these cigars I thought they had to be great due to their reputation. “Oh, they’re made for a king”, “they use the best tobacco”, “oh” blah, blah, blah.
This has to be the most over-hyped cigar I have ever come across. And then they have the audacity to put two gaudy bands, one of which is gigantic, on the cigar. It’s just overkill for me.
But an interesting happens with this cigar. It’s not bad. Not bad at all, actually. This one is a fairly solid cigar that almost makes me want to rethink my hatred for this brand.
And, to be fair, I usually get their cheaper lines. I haven’t splurged and bought one of their expensive, very expensive actually, cigars yet. Maybe I should because this was a very good cigar.
