Agreed. And thats part of their marketing strategy, retail is $20 so must be one hell of a cigar, sell them marked down 90% :0 dude your getting a Killer deal! Smart, but i aint a dummy.I tried one of these again based on @StogieFisher recommendations (I know, I know).. they really aren't bad. Just a smooth, easy going stick for fishing or whatever.. but you can't look at retail with the Gurks, they're all over the place.. a 5er of beauty can be had for less than $20. Sometimes around $2/ea.
But, there's still much better sticks out there in the $2 range, so...
I remember enjoying it the last time I had it, maybe 2013ish? Havent bought it again though, might be a reason for that....I still like the Ghost but that's about it.
Did this just go from #neveragain to #gurkhalove???I remember enjoying it the last time I had it, maybe 2013ish? Havent bought it again though, might be a reason for that....
@GaryPoe you might try the Ghost Angel, Gurkha Cellar Reserve Limitada and maybe the Red Witch. Havent had these in a long time but would be interested to hear your thoughts. Obv there are many other cigars I would recommend over these but since youre on this Gurkha kick those might be worth examining.
Ill never forget the review Saka did on the Majesty's Reserve. He posted it on Facebook some time ago and it was amazing. Its worth the lolz if you can dig it up.
Yes, they're oogy.Gurkha "Beast"
Ive had this one before memory has struck me. Pre light Sweet Cocoa and coffee on the maduro wrapper, plain tobacco cold draw. Light up 6:10pm Good start, smokes a ton. Good burn. First third was cocoa and a hint of coffee, touch of leather. Into the 2nd third all flavors fall on their face. Nasty bittery sour tobacco crap. I am done at mid stick. An absolute joke. I remember now I threw my first Beast IView attachment 121840 had in the road as well. 2 times a charm. #NEVERagain
Yeah This is like a 1-man dog rocket thread !! Give yourself a break ! Stop the suffering !And on that note, I have more to go, A Spec Ops and a few others, but I am bored with Gurkha and I want to smoke something good for a change, so I will come back to this thread at a later date.
Whoa six plus years. They must be phenomenal by now. (not betting the bank on it)Still remember the days of buying gurkha samplers when I got into cigars. Believe i still have a few, hell they probably have about 6+ years of age on them. Taking up room now they'll need to go soon.
