“The Gurkha Widow Maker Connecticut Churchill is very good, and VERY similar to Man O War Virtue. As for the Maduro, it will be a hit or miss. Not bad in any way, just not your standard Maduro. Has a unique flavor, that at times is not very Maduro-like. It is a cigar you have to try for yourself.”
“Wow! Could be the perfect cigar. Burns true. Great draw, great ash, even burn, great flavor, lot of smoke. Ecuador Conneticut was way better for me than the maduro. I thought the La Aurora Preferido was great. This is better. Way better than the Gurkha Centurian.”
“The Gurkha Widow Maker is on the mild side of mild. Not a bad smoke but not much a presence. There are too many great Gurkhas out there to spend your time on the Widow Maker.”
“This is an "OK" cigar. Flavor is good, but not what I assumed with a name like "Widow Maker". wrapper is very light and unnecessarily delicate. Didn't mind, but probably wouldn't go out of my way to buy again.”
“After being disappointed with the Maduro version ( way too minty sweet). I had little hopes for the natural to be a great smoke, but I was wrong! It was a wonderful mild-medium Churchill that tasted great, creamy and smooth.. Kinda like how a Churchill was always supposed to taste in my head whenever I saw Winston puffing on them.”
“If you are in the mood for a Partagas Black, try a Gurkha Widow Maker Private Reserve Maduro: Just as "black", similar taste off the start but by midway there's a hint of full bodied red wine through to the nub.
Gurkha Widow Maker Private Reserve Maduro is AMAZING! Even though filler is Dominican & Partagas Black is Nicaraguan, this Gurkha is similar to yet a step up from PB in all aspects.”
“Gurkha Widowmaker Maduro Churchill is a medium bodied cigar. Dominant flavors was of dark cocoa, molass, nutts, and hint of dark cherry sweetness. Short cocoa nut finish. Draw was a little tight. Main issue for me was construction. Required constant light ups. If functioning well id rate a 89, when its not an 86”
“Excellent cigar that can not be had for less than you'll find it here. Thick pillows of smoke are produced and the cigar almost smokes itself. The name sounds like it would be stronger but a little more than mild with notes of leather and earth with a coffee and pepper note about half way through. My go to cigar.
“....burned significantly uneven causing the stick to curve like a banana. Also, some of them had plugs somewhere along the length making them hard to draw....”
