Their formula is simple: use a well-balanced blend of the highest grade Dominican long-leaf filler available, add a slightly spicy premium authentic Cameroon binder leaf, followed by a thick Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. The process however, is not so simple. Kaizad Hansotia of Gurkha Cigars holds the highest of standards, and expects perfection and excellence out of every cigar created. In order to achieve these high standards, the Legend must patiently undergo an extensive aging process of 8 long years. After all is said and done, this gorgeous, dense cigar delivers a powerful, rich bouquet of hearty flavors in a uniquely smooth mellow manner. Dark and oozing with oily goodness, the medium to full-bodied Gurkha Legend is a well filled, slow burning beauty that will demand your attention from start to finish.
Torpedo size measures 6.5" x 53.
Gurkha Legend received a well-deserved '90' rating, which commented: "A very handsome, dark brown torpedo with a near perfect draw. It opens on a black cherry note with significant spicy, earthy flavors. Some licorice notes segue into a long, spicy finish."
“This was my introduction to the Gurkha brand. Overall I enjoyed the cigar, but I had difficulty with one of the cigar's wrappers falling off while I was smoking it...that annoyed me. I had no other issues with the other 4 I had however, so Im thinking the one was a fluke. This cigar is a full bodied, in your face spice machine. Very woodsy, strong flavor of topsoil (in a good way), increasingly powerful notes of cinnamon, allspice. If you want the sensation of being covered in mud, peppered with cupboard spice and running full speak through a hardwood forest, this is your ticket. I enjoyed it quite a bit and would like to try other Gurkha products now. I will say my all favorite full bodied cigar is still a La Gloria Cubana R series with the Maduro wrapper, but if you like full bodied cigars, you should give this one a try.”

“Talk about a treat. This was one fine stick. right out of the package it had a perfect burn with no relight. the wrapper was flawless and the taste...sublime. a perfect medium stick that can be smoked any time, but just as satisfying with your favorite liquor. gotta add a few more to my humidor.”
