Gurkha Status is an ultra-premium, mild to medium-bodied offering that'll rival any top-shelf name you can imagine. A truly luxurious cigar, each Status lives up to its bold name thanks to top-notch aesthetics, delicious flavors, and unrivaled quality. Draped in a magnificent Connecticut shade wrapper, Status looks splendid and delivers a lovely bouquet to match. The underlying Dominican long-leaf core is bound with a heavily fermented Dominican binder, making the Status silky-smooth and buttery throughout. Accompanying the smooth, scrumptious subtleties of cream, cedar, and sweet tobacco is an easy draw and flawless burn. You owe it to yourself to grab a Status most expeditiously.
Maduro fan? The Status is also available in an equally succulent maduro variety, dressed in a dark Connecticut Broadleaf. A slight uptick in strength is complemented by rich, sweet nuances throughout, completing the perfect, mellow maduro.
I cannot believe Gurkha is not pumping this line out. It is a wonderful blend. These cigars are a treat, smooth, sweet, flavorful and not overpowering. Wish I could get more of the no tube torpedos.

Mild body. Complex flavors.

Medium bodyied cigar which offers smooth yet complex flavors. Very creamy smoke production albeit extremely hard draw (which, in my experience, is not an uncommon issue with torpedo sticks).
I had to cut down nearly to where the cap meets the cigar's body which I thought may compromise the integrity of the wrapper but, if done carefully, this will not be a problem.
Overall, a great cigar.

I wasn't too sure if my package would've arrived in time for Father's Day. I placed a rushed order, showing it would arrive within 2 to 3 days. To my shock my father received the package the very next day that I placed the order!! No wonder he is a loyal customer and now I am too!! Thanks!!
