Gurkha Viper

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!

Gurkha Viper Toro
These are very good cigars. They draw well and I like a box pressed cigar. They are also have a reasonable price.

A very fine cigar
I enjoy and favor Gurkha, I guess, because this cigar was my first introduction to smoking. I admire its consistency and smooth taste.

Nah bruh
Had multiple versions of this cigar. Tasted soapy. Very weird flavors. Not enjoyable to me at all.

Great yard cigar!
This is an awesome yard cigar for me. If I am outside, I have one of these in my teeth. Burns long and not had a draw problem with one yet. I know I have gone through over a hundred.

Good Everyday Smoke... a reasonable price! These are a chunky box pressed cigar that smokes well and has those creamy, earthy nuances that we all like. Not too mild yet, not too strong, just right as an everyday smoke!

Very good smoke.

There are better cigars available than this one.
So I bought this during a Joe's daily deal because it's a Gurkha and it was boxed pressed. The construction, burn and draw were great however the flavour is definitely sub par from other Gurkha's and brands I've had. Not sure how to describe the flavour but it was foul and chemical like (IMHO). There are dozens and dozens of better cigars out there for the money. It might be for you but not me.

Great Value
These sticks are well constructed, burn evenly, and provided hours of pleasurable smoking. Only downside: sometimes there is a bitter smoke taste about half way through a stick (1 out of 4).

Great Cigar and Value
This is a great large-ring cigar. Excellent flavor, burns smoothly and the quality is consistent with each order.

The Viper Toro
I am a 60 ring cigar smoker and lately I've been drawn to the Gurkha group for my cigars. I must say, the Gurkha Viper is an exceptional smoke. The 6 x 60 produced, for me, a smooth smoking pleasure, no construction flaws and an even burn. This was so enjoyable of a smoke, I took it down to about the 1" mark and there was not a lot of bite to it, that can be a common occurrence with other manufacturers. The topper for this cigar, very inexpensive. Try a bundle, see for yourself.

My everyday cigar
I smoke a cigar everyday after dinner and this one is perfect. Easy draw, burns evenly, and great taste for the money. I recommend this smoke to all my friends and none have been disappointed.

Good daily smoker
The box press adds to final feature to these spicy smokes. Great to be enjoyed as an end-of-day smoke that draws well and is easy to enjoy.

Customer Testimonials
Got one of these in a Gurkha grab bag. Nice cigar for the price. Burned well, pleasant flavor and aroma. An enjoyable mild smoke.
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.
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.
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.
This is a great smoke. Full of flavor and has a great draw. Never had to relight it. It will make my regular selection. Lots of cocoa/coffee and earthy tabacco.
I got a box of the Gurkha Viper Churchill from the make me a deal section of CI online. I loved the flavor and the draw. Past some around to some friends and we smoked them all while drinking Oban Scotch and watching football over the weekend. Fair deal from CI and worth the investment.
We love Gurkha cigars....but not this one. The Viper is not up to the standards of Gurkha as far as we are concerned. Very harsh, ashy tasting cigar. Bought 20, smoked 2, gave away 18.
The Gurkha Viper...well it is a Gurkha after all. I tend to enjoy Gurkha cigars very much; however, these were not as tasteful than I had previously anticipated. It was a good buy only being 3.50 a stick, but it could have been better. What you pay is what you get. If you want a premium, expect 8-9+. If you just want a nicer cigar to smoke in the evenings, this would be very comparable to either a Quorum, Don Jose or any cigars of those caliber. My rating would be a 3/5. Good buy none-the-less.
A very good cigar with a flavor unlike any of the Gurkha models I've smoked before, with Gurkha the make - viper the model. A 7 out of a possible 10, with 1 bad - 10 great.
Great smoke! Great draw, great light, great taste! Three great Canadians had this cigar one evening. We all decided to marry it. This is a cigar you can't go wrong with.
This was a great cigar; mild body with a good earthy aroma and flavor. Easy draw, even burn as noted by other reviews; the last bit when you get down to the nub the flavor does go bitter, but don't let that stop you from trying this cigar out. I definitely got my money's worth and will buy the Viper again in the future.
Smooth and tasty. I like it!
