Gurkha Vintage Shaggy Sale

Hmm....I wonder why itโ€™s called Shaggy.

If you were guessing the Gurkha Shaggy got its name from its shaggy foot, then you are spot on. If you were thinking about Scooby-Doo....we might have a problem. The Gurkha Shaggy is a very distinctive cigar from the creative mind of K. Hansotia. Besides the noticeably exposed foot, the Shaggy utilizes a balanced recipe of vintage tobaccos. Bursting from within awaits 5-year old Dominican long-fillers and binder. Resting atop this aged core is an enticing chocolaty-brown 8-year old Dominican wrapper. Upon toasting the rugged foot, the binder and filler provide an insightful experience as to the taste of a cigar sans its wrapper. (Truly very unique if you have yet to experience it.) As the burn reaches the wrapper, warm smoke swarms the palate engulfing the senses as smooth notes of tobacco, oak, spice, and a hint of vanilla round out this medium-bodied treat. Not your normal Gurkha, heck โ€“ not your normal cigar, the Shaggy is a must try.

Gurkha Shaggy Special
Ordering specials seems to be a Grab bag. sometimes you get a good quality cigar but some of the time the cigars are too tightly packed or too loose. Some of the cigars were hard to draw and others we too easy.

Gurka Vintage Shaggy Gran Torpedo
So far, every one of these cigars have been too tightly rolled. I've had a difficult time with each of them. Very disappointed!

Good, but not perfect
Good draw, even burn, good flavor, but caps tend to come off quickly and wrapper splits on many. Still a pretty good smoke and decent value.

Shaggy not shabby
The Shaggy's were truly in Gurkha style, great flavor burned very nice and took a good long while to enjoy. I will be looking out for more of these to fill my humidor in the future!

One heck of a Cigar !
One of the best cigars I've ever smoked. Great Length, great ring size,no tongue burn . Draw is a little tight because it is wound tight, but I can deal with that because it taste so good. Would recommend . It is also the most cigar for the price that I have purchased since buying from CI.
3 out of 5
Kinda Dry
You used to include some sort of humidification with each order. I've been noticing that the cigars are arriving dry. Makes me wonder what kind of humidification you use at your facility because I'm certain the cigars are drying out in two day shipping

Zoinks Scoob, this is a tasty smoke!!
Flavor was good... the unwrapped portion of the end produces a very thin and tasty smoke that is unlike anything I have ever had. I bought a mazo of the Imperial Presidente size, and while they are visually appealing, the few that I have smoked so far have been rolled a little too tight, resulting in a difficult draw. For the ridiculous discount I paid for these with CI, I still think it was totally worth it. If anything, get some of these to hand out to your free-loader friends whose eyes will be as large as saucers when the pick up the 8.5" monster of a smoke. Just buy them and try em, you won't regret it.

Poor construction. Poor flavor. I
Poor construction. Poor flavor. I would not recommend this stick. Other Gurkha's have been very good quality but this stick was not worth the money... regardless of the cost.

Don't like the shaggy, but...
I am not a big fan of the shaggy foot. Having said that, I found this cigar a great smoke! I loved the wonderful tobacco flavor with its light spice. And the price! When I can get Gurkha at this low price, I will put up with shaggy! Will buy these anytime.

I'm a fan of the Gurka brand, especially the Gurkha Beast. But, I was pleasantly surprised by this variety.

take a break
Good smoke, medium strength. A little hard to start due to the loose foot. This is a very long burning cigar and should not be undertaken until the chores are done and it is time to relax.

Great Cigar
I was first introduced to these beauties when I received a free five pack with a web order. My first thought was how bad are these things if they're giving them away. Boy was I wrong on that. These babies are typical Gurkha quality with GREAT flavor. At CI's prices this one is a no brainer.

I have smoked many Gurkha's and saw these and figured I give them a try, i was not disappointed, have shared a few with some friends. I have found that they burn smooth and don't burn too hot even to the end. Great two hour smoke.

Great Value
A very nice smoke. The draw is a little soft and the burn slightly irregular, but overall it's a very good cigar. It lasts a full nine holes on the golf course and is tasty from start to finish. The taste noticeably changes after the wrapper kicks and it's a nice bonus. I actually like its big brother, The Presidente' a little better.

Construction was good Size was perfect as well as the taste. The only issues were a difficult draw at times and a tendency to canoe

Quite good.
Aging them in the humidor definately improved the flavor. Nice strong taste, lots of smoke, very good cigar.

Tough to smoke
Good name and good size - Great price, but hard to keep 'em going. Takes 3 puffs to get some smoke going every time. somewhat disappointing. I'll let them age a little more and try again in a couple of months.

Great Gurkha, for great price
A nice Gurkha smoke, with the shaggy foot makes it unique. Nice smoke with a tinge of sharp that gives it its medium strength. Have smoked 75+ of them, and that says a lot.

Interesting to taste the binder and filler without the wrapper for the first 10 minutes or so. Medium flavor and sweetness peaked about halfway through. Very cool and pleasant smoke.

Nice construction, nice smoke
I've never smoked a cigar with a shaggy end. I was worried it would not burn even. It lit up easy and smoked even all the way down to the nub with a nice even draw. The flavor was great, not too heavy but robust enough. I will buy these again.
5 out of 5
Some great dogs and great cigars are shaggy!
I decided to just take a chance by adding Gurkha Shaggy rothchilds to an order-what a fun,long smoke of medium-full taste and high quality. I was worried it might be just a Gurka rejects smoke but it is it is a beauty with a shaggy look.

Perfecto skeptic
Gurkha's are always in my humidor! Dont usually like any perfectos but these were on sale so I gave em a shot! Love them! Handed a few out and the guys really liked them. Very smooth! I smoke 2-3 a day.
4 out of 5
Decent for the price
I don't really know what the idea was behind the shaggy. Most were good only had one or two that fell apart or cracked. It's a great humidor filler but not one I'll by all the time. For the price they are good

Good cigar
Doesn't seem the ring size is what they claim but still a good cigar!

It's a ghurka
Middle of the road cigar, burns like a cigarette. Smokes like a road flare even when you are not smoking it. Flavor is "meh".
1 out of 5
Very Poor Product in My Opinion
Suppose to be medium, not true. It is very mild. The cigar has no distinct flavor, unless you call having no flavor a flavor. It burned very in consistent. I don't blame my humidor because I have other cigars that burn perfectly. Not very pleased and not what I expected.

These have great (med-full) flavor and a nice BIG cloud of smoke. Which should make it a good cigar. However, like other reviews stated they cannot hold together. I've tried smoking 5 of the 15 and each one fall apart while trying to smoke, the cigar start splitting. I gave the other 10 away to neighbors and work associates...
5 out of 5
Always Awesome!
CI always delivers! Great smokes at a great price with fast delivery, what more could you ask for! Gurkhas are my favorite brand of cigars but I've never had the shaggy's before so when they went on sale I decided to get them at this unbeatable price. I let them rest in my humidor for two weeks and have smoked only one and was quite pleased. It had a perfect burn and mellow flavor that remained relatively flat for about three quarters of the burn. The last quarter started getting more flavorful until the nub started getting a little tarish, which is pretty much expected.although not my favorite Gurkha, at this price point I can smoke it every day which makes it excellent in my opinion!
5 out of 5
Enjoyable
I've been sampling all the Gurkha Shaggies and have enjoyed them all. A nice middle of the road cigar with which I can relax.

have you ever tried to drink from a broken straw ?
Drinking from a broken straw was what it was like. And the flavor wasn't much to talk about. I'm kinda disappointed with the cigars, they were part of a larger order and I was hoping to find a new favorite daly smoke, ?! The savings were great but I guess you get what you pay for... It looks like I'll stick with my old favorite the vintage Cameroon by h uphman

A good, strong smoke
Gurkhas can be a mixed lot, but the Vintage Shaggy is a good one. Very well constructed, I had no issues with the draw or burn. Stays fairly cool as well. It's listed as a Medium, but I found it more like a Full. Not something I'd smoke everyday, but good when you want something strong.

One of the better Gurkhas out there
A lot of hype surrounding Gurkha cigars, expensive and over rated. Not a lot of complexity or flavor. This one is an exception. Not a great cigar, but a good cigar. It has flavor, medium in strength, and burns better than most Gurkhas I have had. Burns a little fast but so far I have not had one of these unravel or fall apart like other Gurkhas. Buy them on sale. They make a nice yard cigar.

Gurkha Vintage Shaggy Gran Rothschild
One great everyday smoke; while I age all my premium high- end cigars, I keep a good supply of everyday great smokes. My everyday smokes may not be high-end, but they provide a great smoking pleasure. I love them for price, quality, great taste, and enjoyment. I enjoy smoking Gurkhas for a great smoking pleasure.

My neighbor tried one w/ me and he is not a regular smoker. He fell in love and wanted to smoke another one right after finishing his first! This is and will be a staple in my humidor!

Great smoke for the price
I've had these in the humidor for 2-3 months now. So far, the 3 I have had were of excellent construction and had a sharp burn. Lots of smooth, mild/medium body smoke, and every one lasted a good 90+ minutes. Good solid ash that hung on initially for about 1.5 inches. Only 1 had a slightly fragile wrapper when I got down to the nub, but I was handling it a lot, so no concerns there. I will definitely buy these again!

Great Price, Great Smoke
I don't know a ton about cigars except that I know I hate paying a lot for them and I know what I like. And I like this one. Great flavor, no problem keeping it lit, although my friends have had some trouble. The way I light it gives a nice even burn. Again, my friends have had some trouble with uneven burn. But this cigar is perfect for me. I'll be back.

Gurkha Vintage Shaggy Gran Torpedo
Overall I have been pleased with these sticks. Great taste and great medium to full flavor. Oaky and spicey I would say. My only negative is that in some of them there is a distinct uneven burn, and significant hard spots. Otherwise they would be a five star....but still worth the price.

Any surprise? Not at all, it's a Gurkha. I bought the Gran Torpedo, and really enjoy them. My saturday afternoon cigar. Don't be impressed by the size, it's a really nice, flavorfull cigar, tasty and really enjoyable cigar. I really like then, n guess what? Will buy it again 4 sure and strongly recommend the Shaggy! Enjoy...

WOW !! -- Great Cigar.....
Smokes smooth and mild. No harsh taste, or after taste. Well constructed but....it could be a little bit more tightly wound. It won't unravel on you but you think it will. The tobacco is ALL QUALITY TOBACCO, so for the price, it's quite a bargain.

Hard to start
The first 1/4 of the shaggy burn is hard to get even. After that very good.

Gurkha Shaggy
The Shaggy is one of Gurkha's better cigars. It's fairly consistent in construction and the smoking experience is also consistent. Better than most other Gurkha sticks.
5 out of 5
Strange and flavorable Cigar.
It was kinda crazy when i opened them up looking at the foot. It was shaggy looking so i fired it up got a full flavor of the cigar i enjoyed it. I would purchase them again if and when you run another gurkha sale on them.

A great Gurkha
So far I have smoke 7 or 8 sticks of these bad boys and they are so damn good. The foot starts off with a peasant spice to prep you for the full experience. Once you get to the wrapper, the leathery taste made me want to gnaw on it. The oaky taste was really enjoyable as the smoke starts to change into plums of creamy, velvety goodness. Honestly, a far better smoke then I was expecting at all. Then again, its a Gurkha.

Is there such a thing as a bad Gurkha?
Well if there is, I have not smoked it. You just cannot go wrong with this brand. It gives you an even burn, great taste and satisfaction to the last draw. I hadn't even finished them before I ordered more. If you haven't tried them you should. You won't be disappointed.

A very good mild everyday cigar
Good construction, good burn, well packed and descent draw. Its linear overall, not very oily. You can feel the quality in the smoke and that's what makes it my favorite mild cigar.

Great value
It's all about the smoke with this cigar. Rich and aromatic, lots of cedar and leather. Taste is mellow with no bite. Very smooth all the way through. Minor touch ups needed. Not very complex but neither am I.Sure there are smokes that are twice as good but they cost 4 times as much! I have about 15 different brands in my humidor, Vintage Shaggy is the best bang for the buck.
3 out of 5
Gurka Shaggy
Not the best for sure. Uneven burn, tight draw, and you have to constantly watch to see what it is doing. To my way of thinking with a premium cigar like Gurka, you should only have to light it and sit back and enjoy without having to constantly keep track of what it is doing. I have smoked Punch cigars more than half way before having to flip the ash first time. Won't buy these again.

I've only had one so not much to go on, but it had a great earth and nut flavor with a perfect burn!

Great for handing off to your mates
I orders these for the great price. The first couple ones i've smoked tasted like paint. After setting them in a humidor set up with slightly higher humidity than usual for my dry sticks, These babies were SOO MUCH BETTER. Very mild but very pleasant. goes great with a good beer or glass of whiskey.

Share a Gurkha Shaggy with a buddy.
A buddy bought a pack of Gurkha Vintage Shaggies from CI so I tried one. I really liked it so I bought my own pack. Enjoyed all of them, so I bought them again. This might be one of my new humidor stand-by cigars.

I'm not sure why there's a lot of negative reviews regarding this cigar. I'm not sure exactly how many times I've ordered this particular cigar, but I know it's probably about my 5th time. I'm a pretty big Gurkha fan and cigars have lived up to my expectations time and time again.

Poor construction DO NOT BUY
Horrible cigar I can't even cut it without it falling apart. Gurkha makes come good cigars and some not so good ones and this is one of the not so good ones. The construction is so poor that I have started to just cut them up and put them in my garden to use as a pesticide.

A bit uneven but flavorful
I enjoy the cigars, but they tend to burn unevenly, go out often, and tunnel burn, where the center of the cigar burns, but the wrapper and binder don't. Draw seems excellent from start to finish.

Questionable Cigars. Great service.
The special price CI ran a on these cigars motivated my purchase. I had positive experience with the shaggies in the past so I was confident these would as well. The first few I smoked met my expectations. Then the last two were difficult to draw. I've still got half what I ordered. Hopefully these smoke as well as those i've purchased in the past. By the way, regardless of the quality of the cigars I've had nothing but exemplary service from CI. Keep up the good job guys!

Gurkha Vintage Shaggy Gran Torpedos are a great smoke. For a large ring size cigar, they remain smooth smokes to the end. Only complaint is the ends of my batch seem dry and leave a ragged burn for the 1st inch or so.

Difficult draw
I received these cigars about 10 days ago and was excited to get them. My first smoke was really terrible. No matter what I did, a second and then third cut, I wasn't able to get the cigar to properly draw. On my second attempt, the cigar drew well, was tasty, interesting and pleasurable. I have not as yet tried a third smoke and hope it is like the second, not the first.

I am a little disappointed. The cigars come unwrapped rather easily while you smoke them. More than a little annoying. It is almost as if they are dried out, but they are kept properly in a humidor...just not a tight wrap.

Typical Ghurka Quality
Like most Ghurkas, the Vintage Shaggy had some great sticks, and some problem sticks. Uneven burn, occasional tar buildup, trouble keeping them lit. Out of the whole pack maybe half were enjoyable smokes. The rest weren't worth the price of admission.

Very tasty and yes...shaggy
I bought these after I watched an I interview in which Konestia said these were his go to cigars. I thought I would give them a try. Any excuse to smoke a cigar right!? I've smoked a half dozen so far and I must say they are very tasty!! Not sure of blah blah nuances or blah blah traces but they are good. They have that creamy buttered toast, roasted nuts (pistachios?), oatmeal flavor and I love it!! Can't get enough of the flavor. My eyes roll back and I forget about corruption and injustices which is mainly why I smoke cigars, (flavor is #1). The problem I have with these stogies is that the wrapper (aged to 8 years?) crumbles, flakes and cracks at about half a smoke. It is very thin and I must be very careful to not touch it too much at that point. It's something I'm incapable of doing. This is a very tasty smoke that looks great at first but degrades to a backwoods fugstick by the end.

Thanks for great deal on your Ghurka Shaggys. Awesome sticks at a crazy price. My friends were happy that I could spread the love around and look like a big spender.Now I am waiting for my order of "Rocky Patel vs the World". Keep the great deals coming, I'm going to need a bigger humidor.

Disappointing
I am a huge Gurkha fan but this one misses the mark in my opinion. It's flavorless, it draws really hard (I know people are going to say well yeah because it's a foot long but that's not it) and doesn't burn even. I now have 17 of these left and I plan on keeping it that way. I won't buy these ever again and I don't plan on smoking the ones I have left. Gurkha has way better for less money.

Gurkha Vintage Shaggy Gran Rothschild vs Double Perfecto
I like the Shaggy but I found that the shaggy foot on the Double Perfecto lent to uneven burning and canoeing. I lit them with matches, a zippo, and a torch lighter...best lighting results were with matches. I've purchased a few Shaggy bundles and found them to be good, solid cigars if you're willing to work with the burning inconsistencies. I think I have that figured out and will buy more. I have to add that I didn't have these problems with the Gran Rothschild. Maybe too much on the foot of the Double Perfecto? Overall I like the Shaggy...the Double Perfecto may need some construction work so I'll get more Gran Rothschild and enjoy it even more.

Gurkha's always burn crooked
No matter how many of their different makes we try, they are probably the worst burning cigar you can buy. Almost 70% will burn crooked, or cool, or tunnel. The ones that don't will flake off the wrapper during your smoke. I am done with the brand.

As Charles Barkley would say..."Just Turrible!"
These are the worst Cigars I've had in recent memory. Absolutely no flavor, they smell like grass and not the good kind. The wrapper is very thin and always cracks, then begins to fall off. Do not buy these. I still have three 5 packs that I refuse to smoke, not even good enough for the golf course.

I and a buddy lit these up on our way home from a music gig. He had already had one while vacationing in Hawaii and said he liked it a lot. We lit โ€˜em up and really enjoyed our trip home. We both thought it was a little lighter than what we usually expect from Gurkha, yet there was no shortage of complexity and flavor. A great smoke

What a sleeper! It seems like it is always on special but why! It burns awesome, it is a nice medium bodied smoke with great tobacco richness in every puff which goes great with wine or whiskey by the fire plus the "shaggy" aspect gives you something to talk about with those "rookie" smokers.

Close...but not a keeper
I've smoked through six of these and the best I can say is...."they're OK". I'm a big Gurkha fan and enjoy many of their offerings. I was hoping for a little more balanced smoke (like the Beast) and came away underwhelmed by the Shaggy. Not disappointed that I bought them....they're just not going to make my Top 10 Gurkha list.

My least favorite Gurkha
Found them to be very inconsistent. Range from too spicy, to too bland. Just not what I expected compared to the other Gurkha's. Must be why they are always on sale. Only reason they got 2 stars is because the are well constructed.

Nice cigar, some are rolled VERY tight
Great looking cigar, very large size! You can't really go wrong with a Gurkha! The Imperial Presidente is so long that you could almost cut them in half and get two smokes out of one cigar. Good flavor, will hold a LONG ash. I'd buy again but I guess I need one of those poker things to fix the tight-rolled ones. I'm only giving three stars because half-way thru the bundle of 15, three or four have been rolled so tightly that my cheeks get sore trying to draw thru them. As at least one other reviewer said, they sometimes start burning off-center.

Relax with this Shaggy
Bought these as part of sampler a year ago. CI had a deal recently and I grabbed a bunch more. Take your time and enjoy the Shaggy. Putting fire to them the first time is a little different, but as they burn in, the pleasure of this cigar comes on. They are on my ENJOYABLE cigar list.

Make Your Own 2'fer.
I found that the very long preidentes draw like a golf ball through a garden hose. So I began cutting the cigars in half. Voila! A superb, multi-flavored smoke. Plus you get two, albeit shortened, smoking pleasures for the price of one.

Where I buy my cigars
CI has a wide range of cigars. They are consistent in quality and price. Shipments are received on time and cigars are never damaged. Happy New Year!
