  1. Thanks for the review guys….

    thats one hell of a setup you got there Tom!

    Its tempting to go out and get one of these, because of your rave review, but I just can’t get over my disdain for the company. I’d be happy to have one if gifted, but $10 for a stick from a company that has yet to impress me (Packaging excluded) is beyond justification for me.
    When Gurkha makes a fantastic $5 stick, then I’ll take them off my shit list. Anyone can buy the best tobacco in the world, but if you don’t know how to blend it, it is just a waste of money.

    My personal feelings on Gurkha aside… excellent job as always! Keep the reviews coming!

  2. sounds like a good smoke, if I ever come across one I will give it a shot.

    Nice video, a little on the long side but still worked. No one seemed to talk over anyone else, worked out good this time.

    Good job Ed & Tom. Anthony, big shout out for the Celtic Frost (circle of the tyrants!!!!!!!)

  3. Tom,

    You know I have never smoked a Gurkha to this date. Looks like I have been missing out. Great review and I love the outdoor setup. Keep up the great reviews and I’ll catch up with you on Twitter.

  4. There are far too many outstanding value, great tasting cigars out there – I think the name is cool but I don’t like the prices.

  5. Glad you enjoyed the review people. If you watched the entire thing, I applaud you as well. It did run a bit long.

    Rich, CWS –
    I hear you. As I said in the review, I don’t appreciate the image Gurkha is portraying of cigar smokers. Most of us are regular working people who don’t sit around sipping wine, and making business deals on a golf course. Hence my comment that there are a lot of good $4.00 smokes out there too. All that aside, it is a damn good cigar. I wanted to disagree, but couldn’t. It just tasted good.

    Tony – The people spoke, and I listened 😉 I rewatched the Anothony guest review and saw we spoke over him often (hence me saying at the beginning we won’t do that anymore). The vid was a bit long, probably due to me rambling about the cigar smoker image thing.

    Joel – Chillin at Ed’s was great. No worries about customers walking in, or a drunk from the bar annoying us. Definately a cigar worth trying.

  6. My father made many deals on the golf course – never smoked a Gurka though.
    I have smoked some Gurkas and I did enjoy them – it was just the price that was hard to deal with. However a good cigar is a good cigar.
    For what it is worth – thanks for doing the review. Just because I’m not a fan of the Gurka image doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate your review or the effort you put into the review.
    Even more impressed that you read the comments and replied . . .

    Take care

  7. CWS-
    It’s all good. I think our opinions about the brand and price are similar in the end. Even we if flat out disagreed, I’d still enjoy the feedback.

    Keep in mind, Ed and I don’t generate the level of comment love that let’s say, Jerry does. So responding to everyone is easy on my part 😉

    Glad you enjoyed the review though. Remember… SR RULES!

  8. While I like the Gurkha Fuerte, I find most of their smokes kinda blah. And their MSRP is crazy. Luckily you can find most of them incredibly discounted on CI or cigarbid. I think I pay a little over $2 a stick for the fuertes off cbid.

    And Ed, your wife is hot! 😀 You should have her sit in on a review.

  9. Steve and TCR –
    The price is the biggest turn off for me, but I admit, I buy one from time to time. I’ve never had a bad one. I’ll point Anthony (The Gurkha whore) to this thread. He’ll respond “Blasphemy!”
