Gurkha Viper

For a limited time, enjoy an additional $10 off all Gurkha Viper boxes! Prices reflected below.

Sink your teeth into this!

Gurkha Viper marks a serious departure for owner Kaizad Hansotia. Known for his outrageously expensive handmades and overly ornate packaging, Viper is tamer in comparison. Reasonably priced, and far from flashy, Viper offers a smooth, medium-bodied smoke. Draped in a chestnut brown natural wrapper leaf, filled with an aged blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers, then gently box-pressed, Viper dishes out a flavorful array of cedar, coffee, cream, and spices. A well-made, tasty, and welcomed addition to the extensive Gurkha line. And check out the new low price - good just got great!

Customer Reviews of “Gurkha Viper”
Got one of these in a Gurkha grab bag. Nice cigar for the price. Burned well, pleasant flavor and aroma. An enjoyable mild smoke.
NH of UPPER MARLBORO, MD
Love it! My favorite Gurkha. Wish CI would run a daily or weekly deal on these! How 'bout it, CI?

I've heard some not great things about Gurkha, but I've loved about every one I've had. That being said, I thought this was a bit of a let down. The draw was good and it burned smooth, but overall it wasn't an enjoyable smoke. I can't quite place it, but definitely in the bottom of this brand.

Fire proof. That's the best way to describe this'n. I've kept them at 65 for a month and even the third one of the bunch would not stay lit. A cigar is about relaxation so what if I haven't puffed in the last few minutes it should still be lit!!! Not the case with this one my friends.

Let me start by saying I am a fan of most every Gurkha I have tried...but this one was really a let down. I got a box and have smoked about 7 of them so far and I have barely made it through a half of one. They all have a very hard draw, even after being in the humidor at around 67 for about a month. The taste is what I can only compare to old damp soil. Not a pleasant smoke. I would pass on this one.
WM of OLIVE BRANCH, MS
Got 2 in a grab bag, just smoked one while doing homework, It was very well constructed, good draw, and was very pleasant until it got down to the nub, then as a previous commenter noted, tasted like what I would imagine wet dirt to taste like... not what I would consider a celebration cigar... but it was a great homework cigar FWIW

First off I must say that I have only tried the Gurkha Beauty prior to this. I was at the local cigar shop today and was looking for something new to try. After a few choices, the owner sold me on a Gurkha viper. I was a bit hesitant because I personally did not like the Beauty.(BORING!) As I went out to enjoy my after Dinner smoke, I did a last minute switch between CAO Extreme to the Viper. I was VERY pleased! This is the first cigar that I have smoked down to the nub and Beyond! I was actually burning my lips.( I always thought that those reviews were BS.) I do normally like full bodied cigars, but this is a solid medium bodied contender! Try it, you'll like it!

I like Gurkhas overall and this one was in a grab bag. I like full flavored smokes which is what most of the other Gurkhas have been (1887, Maduro). This one started off kind of harsh and like a few reviewers noted, wet-earthy, and to me a bit burnt tasting. Pleasantly surprised tho, it ended up smoothing out over the middle and became nutty, almost sweet by the end with a hint of coffee. Not bad, not great, but serviceable and decent overall.
DL of Phoenix, AZ
Just got back from smoking my first Viper. The wrapper wasn't anything to write home about but with a box-press I feel that's somewhat acceptable. Definitely a medium to full body cigar with prominent spice and wood notes throughout balanced by a touch of earth and leather. End of the second third saw the earth and leather drop out to be replaced by an amazing creaminess that balanced the spice perfectly. Not the best Gurkha I've ever smoked but for the price I would say the value is strong with this one. Certainly a cigar I would keep in the humidor for a spot in rotation and sharing with friends.

Smooth and tasty. I like it!
