Gurkha Monogram Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×53 stick features a tan wrapper with a smooth silky texture, small veins, tight seams, even slightly spongy pack and a pepper and wood aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plenty of medium-full smoke production giving a bitter, oily grass and wood flavor with a long finish. The first third drops the bitterness and adds a pepper and spice, leaving a zing on the lips. The ash drops off in a solid chunk at the start of the 2nd third, and it continues to the band with no flavors shifts at all. Ending at the hour mark with an inch remaining, the who cigar proved to be very consistent in flavors. Thank you very much to viewer Bob Gregovich for generously sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!

    I have not tried one yet as I’m still quite a new cigar smoker. However, I have wanted to try a black dragon to see if performance matched the hype.

    I haven’t tried any Gurkha cigars yet but the Master select look like a good stick.

    Great review Bryan, I have yet to try any Gurkha sticks. I pretty much do all my cigar shopping at my local B&M’s and they don’t seem to carry the brand. But ii will be putting an order in onlIne soon. Thanks again.

    I have typically been underwhelmed by Gurkhas. They seem to all taste similar to me. I like the Master’s Select Churchill as a long smoking mild golf cigar and the 15 year isn’t bad either. I have a couple handfuls in the humi, but I just can’t seem to ever pull one out…I just never crave a so-so, ho-hum, blah smoke; don’t know why 🙂
