Gurkha Regent Robusto Cigar Review

This 5.7×52 oval box pressed stick features a soft, oily dark brown wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, double cap and sweet tobacco and cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium bodied smoke output showing sweet musty tobacco, leather and a smooth pepper all with a very short clean finish. The first third quickly changes to a very oily smooth tobacco and earth, keeping the short clean finish. The 2nd third comes and goes with little change, taking the finish longer, adding a touch of pepper and the subtle sweetness has a little cinnamon to it on the draw. Ending at 1:05 minutes the last third stayed very consistent with perfect performance all the way down. Thank you very much to the viewer who sent this in, you didn’t put your name on the note so I don’t know if you wanted to remain anonymous or not!

    I always have bad luck with Gurkha for some reason. I actually haven’t bought one in about a year due to bad experiences.

        Holy crap. That guy looks like he’s sneaking into your yard!

        • MDSPHOTO

          That’s what got me about this guy. His backdrop is almost identical minus the tiki torches. He has similar facial features and he appears to be distracted by bugs just like BG. Classic!

      LMAO!!! That nose scratching got on my nerves. I wish he would have just picked that booger out or whatever it was!! And that must have been a GIANT beetle of some sort! I absolutely laughed my azz off at this guy!! Thanks for giving me a laugh MDSPHOTO!

      I was wishing that the guy would gain some of Brian’s editing skills.

      I’ve just found your site. I have to say that this guy is a great bloke and you guys taking the piss just shows how much you suck up to Brian.Perhaps the rest of you could do your own reviews then we could all laugh at them. I’ve spoken with him and he’s bombed me some great cigars and been a generous guy. Shame on you all for being total piss takers!

    That U.K. version of you Bryan umm….. No he likes to pick his nose. LOL!!

  • GrandNational

    I hope that’s the first and last time I ever hear Padron and Gurkha mentioned in the same breathe lol.

  • Robert

    Bryan, just be glad you don’t have a nickname like Pandyboy 🙂

  • eric.hanson

    Thanks for reviewing this one for me Bryan. I get very similar flavors out them, aside from the Padron like flavors you got at first.
