Good flavorful smoke.
I like the Black Ops a lot. There is a firmness to the cigar and a richness to the flavor that just hits me right. Full flavored without being over-powering. This cigar is a good smoke from beginning to end.

I rank Gurkha as one of the top labels in my humidor, and the Black Ops NEVER disappoints. Both the Habano, and the Maduro are incredible. Always on my list of "go to" cigars.

Good flavor, good strength.
First received Black Ops in a random CI sampler and liked them enough to order a sampler with all 3 wrappers. Construction is always good - great draw every time, never fall apart on me, good ash. Smoking the Habano now after reviewing the Connecticut. "Rich, Cuban-esque notes of earth, coffee, and nuts before a peppery, slightly sweet finish" - pre lightup it smelled a bit like milk chocolate to me. First few puffs were mild pepper and spice, opening up to more of a dark chocolate with some coffee and nuts. 1/3 of the way it is now richer with some earth. 2/3 it's rich and now I get that cuban-esque description. Overall, the best of the 3 Black Ops wrapper choices IMO.

Very Disappointed....
I don't like writing negative reviews for any item(s) I've purchased, but just could not avoid this one! These smokes were not typical of ANY other Gurkha products I've ever smoked. After the first 4 or 5 smoked & sharing a couple with my neighbor, I just dumped them. The burn had an offensive creosote like smell and the taste was similar... Lots of canoeing on each of the sticks and each one started as soon as the burn reached the first 1/2"...
