Gurkha Legend Vintage 2001 Aniversario Cigar Review

This 6×60 perfecto features a thin dark chocolate mottled wrapper with an oil sheen, minimal veins, tight seams, light pack and a faint pepper and tobacco aroma. Both ends are pre clipped and first light reveals a snug draw, but perfectos will sometimes open up after a few minutes. Flavors are a medium bodied smooth dry tobacco with a big bitter finish. The first third burns fairly slowly even after clipping the head and doubling the precut opening. The draw itself is perfect after a cut, with plentiful smoke output and very mild dry tobacco flavors with a long finish of the same. The ash falls off quickly only holding 1/2 inch or so. The 2nd third develops to a creamy soft mild-medium nuttiness, with the same great smooth smoke production and long finish, showing the tobacco taste only at the very end. The last third began 40 minutes in with no changes, just perfect construction and longer ash drops through the thicker sections. Ending at 55 minutes the last bit was equally consistent. Thank you very much to viewer Terence Glynn for sending this in for review!

    Good review, I’ve been looking at these online for a while now. Sounds like a pretty boring cigar. I noticed that at about 4:25 it sounds like a roosters call, was it just a weird dogs bark, or do you have chicken farmer neighbors? On a side note, is the person that sent you that cigar related, or just a coincidence of names?

    I got a 5 pack on line some time ago, my experience was about the same at Bryan’s. I was disappointed with it, my burns tended to not be as good as Bryan was getting but I don’t allow my cigars to rest as long as he does. It is pretty stick though.

    Thanks for the review Bryan! I have a few of these Vintage 2001 perfectos in the humidor but I have never thought of smoking one in the morning. After viewing your review I did exactly that. Man! the quality,and taste of the tobacco was fantastic! It burned perfectly too. It was a great morning smoke! One that will be repeated. Have you ever smoked a Gurkha Status Natural Torpedo? It is one of my absolute favorites. Thanks for the tip bro!

    Solid review. Do you wake up really early, or stay up really late?

    Had my first Gurkha Centurian a while back and liked it so ordered a few of these as well. Good review, can’t wait to get mine. Have found on the Gurkha’s that resting time in the humi is more essential then other smokes…

    Great review. I think I’m going to get some of these if I can find a good deal.
