Gurkha is a dynamite, top-of-the-line Dominican. Gurkha cigars are hand-rolled from the finest tobaccos grown in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic. The Louis XIII line is one of the finest that Gurkha makes.
The Grand Reserve (copper) features a premium Connecticut shade wrapper, and each cigar is infused with fine Louis XIII Cognac, resulting in a unique, subtle, pleasant and light finish. Not dipped, sprayed or injected, this secretive process is utterly unique, resulting in an extraordinarily mellow, subtle and refined taste that has not been duplicated by any other cigar maker.
Each cigar is gorgeously presented under glass in crystal tubos, and each glass tube is characteristically hand-dipped in wax for a one-of-a-kind presentation.
The cigar wraps were falling apart. I expected better quality then this. I am now re-thinking my purchases moving forward. I have spent a decent chunk of change Cigars International and this was disapointing.

I have smoked a lot of gurkha grand reserve, but the last couple batches seemed to lack the amazing flavor I fell in love with.

Decent, but not the best

There seems to be alot of hype over these, as well as a decent price tag to follow it. Its not too expensive, but the flavor of this smoke wears of about half way through. Mind you though the first have is tasty, but after that it ends up in my ash tray.
