Gurkha Cigar Group launches a holiday sampler, featuring a stylish black hexagonal design with 6 toro cigars and a cutter. Available at US retailers while supplies last.
"I think this may actually be a great cigar right in my profile if it wasn't for the construction issue I ran into making the final third harsh. The opening of sweet cedar and baking spice warmed up the blend wonderfully. The transition into a heavier dark chocolate and more black pepper was very enjoyable. Sadly the final third turning into a more harsh pepper and burnt coffee wasn't too good. I'd absolutely try this blend again though cause I feel like the final third would be wonderful if it just wasn't for the harshness due to the relights and draw problems." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"This was a splendid and sagacious cigar, with notes including honey graham cracker and rich baking spice, all of which I really enjoy. That being said, the open draw and feint ending were a bit of a downer for me. Overall, it is one I could see myself revisiting, as these drawbacks could be one-off issues and the next experience is much more fulfilling. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

This year the company decided to offer those cigars in a new Sampler bag along with a preview of the new Connecticut version of that blend.
"If the end didn't fall a bit flat I'd say this is a very well done cigar. The notes are very classical to me and it smoked effortlessly. I wouldn't recommend running out and buying a box but if I wanted a solid smoke while having a chat or playing a game I think it would do nicely. " -Alan (Eulogy)

"This was a good cigar overall. Had the draw been less cumbersome, it would have been a treat. Nice transitions in flavor while maintaining much of the original flavors at the beginning with just a couple of additions and subtractions. I would buy this cigar in the hopes that the next one would not have the same multi-puffs necessary on the draw." -Randy B. (randobush)
"This cigar was Top Notch from start to finish. It looked great prior to lighting it on fire AND it delivered a slew of really nice flavors once the foot was torched. Add in excellent construction from start to finish and this is easily a cigar that will satisfy the majority of smokers out there..." -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
