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"...

Good Cigar for the price
Never had a crooked burn, never had a cracked or vented wrapper. Good cigar, 1/2-1/3 of the cigars in the bundle the draw was HARD. Strong cigar flavor, kicks pretty hard, loved 'em.

Reliable and tasty
I've purchased several bundles of this cigar over the past year or so. The torpedo shape is one of my favorites for this blend, and it has a pleasant aroma and good taste. Very reliable, overall. Great for any activity, whether it's relaxing, driving or just mowing.
