A royally good deal.

I love new cigars. I love Sumatras. And I love getting stuff on the cheap. So Castle Hall Sumatra from Gurkha and I are a match made in cigar paradise. These ‘Cuban-sandwich’ style blends from K. Hansotia at Gurkha are a reliable, every day cigar that I haven’t been able to stop burning since they hit our docks. Each one is presented with a classy, vibrant band (like most Gurkha creations).

Underneath, you’ll find a Sumatra wrapper, with aged Dominican fillers. Notes of cedar, leather, earth, and cocoa come through, with a razor-sharp burn line. And like I mentioned earlier, these guys are available at budget prices. If you’re looking for a new everyday blend, and you like a rich Sumatra, you can’t do much better than Castle Hall.

Nice and smooth full flavor and a slow burn perfect with makers mark on a Sumer afternoon

pretty solid
Not the best Gurkha has to offer, but still better than most. A very solid smoke.

First time trying. Good smoke, not a bad flavor. I will probably get again.

Worst I've Bought
I've never worked harder to smoke a cigar. I had to cut and cut, poke holes in the end and more just to be able to smoke this thing. One friend said he was exhausted from all the effort of puffing and puffing. He said he won't smoke one again and I wouldn't either if I hadn't bought 20. They're packed really tight and peel like crazy. And they're pretty flavorless. Can't think of one good thing to say.

Poorly rolled
This cigar has a good flavor and can produce nice amount of cool smoke but at least 50% of he ones I bought were too tightly rolled. I ended up throwing out a lot of them.

Just so so
All right CI, you're asking a 'new be' to rate this brand. Right out the gate, of a raft of 20, the first one was a struggle and went to the mat with it. It was rolled to tight. Three more into them - same thing. They all went 'canoeing' like a love sick Indian. I'm hoping some rest time in the humidor might put some life into them, but I'm having my doubts. I gave it two stars because the flavor is decent. I suspect that there was a rookie at the rolling bench. Probably happens a lot. At any rate, that's why I've got the Meerschaum. I hates ta' waste any cigar.

Some were bad
It seemed to be a pretty good cigar but a couple of them were "chewy " it was as if the inner leef was rubbery and the cigar would not hit. I tossed those ones . Other than those two, I liked it .

GREAT SMOKE
These are a great kick around smoke. Nothing fancy but a good well rounded smoke at a great price.

Well made, well played
I wanted a good 30 minute cigar that didn't overpower my taste buds. It had to go with what I was drinking, alcohol or not. And no canoeing, please, or plugged draws. I got it.

One star to too generous
One star is too generous. I thought they may have got to dry during shipment but I've had them in the humidor @70 for a couple months now and no change. The outer wrapper is thin, most if not all have rips, tears and holes.. End caps are not on well..nothing good to say about them. I wouldn't buy again.

Good Cigar
Great with cigar in one hand and a whiskey in the other

I have been enjoying these cigars
The only problem I have with them is the ring pulls the wrapper and tears it sometimes. The ring is actually stuck to the wrapper. No bueno. I like the consistent flavor for sure.

Good value!
Good cigar for the money! Put a few back for aging but even without I enjoyed them down to the nub!

Disappointed but can't complain.
Gonna be as honest as I can: this particular bundle so far has been pretty inconsistent. This is the 1st Gurkha I've ever smoked, and even for a REALLY good price on these, (thank you CI!) I had a bundle of Nicaraguan Sweet 2nds and Felipe Dominicans that had more consistency than these. Wrapper fell apart on some, but I'm sure if I let it sit a little longer it would probably be better. The taste of some is stronger than others. BUT, I will not turn my head to trying more Gurkhas. With that being said, I'm not going to bash this cigar outright. It has some pros. Pros: The Ash HOLDS REALLY WELL. I had the ash almost and a half from the the foot before falling off. It's one of those cigars where if youre tight on money but still want a bundle for the cool starlit nights laying by the pool, you can still enjoy them.

Expected Better From Gurkha
I bought these because the price was great for such a well known brand, but I think they just slapped the Gurkha band on an inferior cigar to make money. Most of the bundle I purchased had a hard draw on them and they finished with a fairly harsh taste far from the end of the cigar with about at least an inch from to go. I won't bother trying another batch.

Not bad.
Good full-bodied cigar for the money.

They has a machine like texture, and feel like the blend is sandwich.
I used to smoke them, something has change in the production, not the same.

Changed to new supplier
Regardless of price there was always a few cigars that never burned evenly....one side would burn faster than the other.
