    You do realize these posts will live forever on the internet, right? What are your great grandkids gonna think?
    I used to have 3 Gurkha cigars and handed them out to my son's drunk friends during a 4th of July cookout in 2014. They thought they were high rollers and I never looked back.

    @GaryPoe , would it be offensive if I said you were a glutton for punishment? :p

    A Gurkha can be good after 3 glasses of scotch, but not before. (doubles)

    Safe to say, that is one bitch I've never had a relationship with. ;)

    Ironically, one of my top favorite cigars was the G3, which they no longer make. I haven't enjoyed any other Ghurkha's that I've tried.
    I think their real fame comes from Clinton using one on Monica, maybe they're in the wrong market.

    I’m not defending Gurkha as overall, I agree with most of you as many of their cigars are questionable at best. I have however had a handful of Gurkha cigars that I really enjoy and am not embarrassed about it. I’ve had some cigars from companies that people rave about that are supposed to be of much higher quality than Gurkha but that I would not smoke again as these “high rollers” weren’t even worth finishing. I guess my point is that I’ve had good and bad cigars from many companies and I try to approach every new smoking opportunity with an open mind and without preconceived notions.

    Even if a "few are decent", I don't want to support a company that puts a huge price sticker on MOSTLY garbage.

    I'd rather support the little guys. EZ, C&A, CH, Tat, Warped, and all the other small companies poking out. It's the same thing with beer, I won't touch anything from ABInbev. For example, wicked weed from Asheville. They sold out. Are they awesome? Yes. Are they going to put out the same quality now that they are nationally distributed? Hell no. Game over.
    I'll support the local, micro and nano breweries.

    I think they prey on new people getting into the hobby. I remember a few years ago when I first started the hobby I went to my local BM and found that they had them 4 for 10 dollars. 40 dollars worth of cigars for 10 dollars! Wow. I thought i had them over the barrel. When I brought them to the counter the guy asked me if i ever had them before. I said no, then he said are you sure you want them. I thought to myself why would he ask that. I bought them anyway and started to smoke one on the way home. Needless to say, after the first third I threw it out the window. The other 3 suffered the same fate. Maybe at one time they were good when they only produced a few sticks but now since they produce so many I think the quality went down drastically. You're better off rolling up a pile of dogshit in the backyard and smoking it.

    No reason to be embarrassed. Smoke what you like, like what you smoke. :)
