“The "Beasts" arrived! Humidified overnight to settle them down from the overland express. Parked myself with favorite wash down drink. Cut a sliver off the end & settled into lighting the 60 ring. WOW! Inch #1 gave me an appetite for Beef Tartar. Could it get any better? Inch #2 was pure "meaty". Inch #3 perfect vitamin N buzz, consistency, density, burn, & smoke. Ultimately fulfilling Dominican 20 years ago deja vu. Just got to settle them down & store them without comingling to bring out the best they have to offer. A truely GREAT cigar!”
“I really like this cigar in the XO and regular size but the Salomon seems to be a difficult smoke. I had one tonight and had to end it early with wrapper issues. At its best, the Beast is a very smooth mild to medium with chocolate & carmel flavor.”
“First time trying this cigar I wasn't impressed, but after I let them sit in the humidor for 2 weeks they came alive with flavor. I bought them on special $ 4.00 a piece. cant afford $ 30 to $40 dollar cigars. thanks CI for the opportunity to try this one. well worth $4.00.”
“I thought it was an excellent punch in the face cigar. It had a bold flavor that lasted and stayed consistent all the way through. That being said, I did have issues with it burning unevenly. All in all a good cigar. I'll have to let my next one age a bit in my humidor.”
“Had my first "Beast" sitting by a fire with friends tonight. I can say this....NICE! Really good smoke, had to relight once, but other than that no complaints. Good burn, long burn, good body, plumes of smoke. Nice spice, earth, and cream. Yum.”
“I got one in a sampler. I just held it in my hand pondering this beauty for about two minutes before cutting and lighting. What an incredible smoke! If I were a really rich man, this would be my daily smoke!”
“Great cigar. Top 5 in my book. Taste and burn are great.”
“Got a fiver of the Beast XO and let them recover from their trip in my humi for a week. Based on the other reviews I was expecting some really rich flavor and a decent amount of smoke, but was left disappointed. Flavors were sweet with hints of caramel and chocolate, but they didn't deepen or change much through out the smoke. Nicotine was really heavy considering the mellow flavors. I'm hoping the other four improve with more time in the humidor.”
“a very nice smoke! Gurkha does it again!! mine burned evenly and had no wrapper issues or other issues at all for that matter, even despite the fact that I was smoking it outside AND in the wind, so ....that's saying something. I like all types of cigars, from mild to full flavored, and everything in between, I love em all! I grabbed the Beast because I was having a craving for a more flavorful smoke, and it did not disappoint. BIG, bold flavors, but still remarkably smooth, which impressed me. Delicious. I have yet to try a Gurkha that I don't like. They are one of my go-to brands, it seems you just can't hardly go wrong when you choose a Gurkha cigar!!”
“Good Cigar. Not harsh. Tasted good... definitely on the MD side.”
“This cigar has a great flavor and is rich for a maduro cigar. The only cigar I've tried that compares to it is the Indian Tabac Maduro. Do not remove the huge label on the cigar before you smoke the cigar or you will peel off the top layer of leaf. The smaller label you can remove....Try this cigar. It is unlike any Gurkha cigar I have smoked. If you like CAO maduro cigars, you will love this Gurka Beast also.”
“Oh my what a great smoke. This is my favorite over all the others I've smoked. Can't go wrong with a cigar called "Beast"!
“Just wonderful! Fabulous way to chill!
“It lives up to its name! Various spices that leave a pepper note. Smooth and tasty all the way to the nub.”
