Gurkha Archive Torpedo

Description

A nod to 20 years of success

A 2010 release, the Gurkha Archive 1887 was a hats off and congratulations for 20 years of delectable handmades. Flourishing for 20 years in the cigar business is no easy feat. Many great brands have risen to fame, only to witness their own demise shortly thereafter. Well, Gurkha has thrived for 20 years and is still pumping out top shelf blends to this day. Distinguishing Gurkha from the rest of the pack has been an undeniable attentiveness to innovation and quality. 

The Archive took 2 full years and countless blending to finally master. This gorgeous milky-brown cigar comes draped in a silky smooth 6-year aged Connecticut Maduro wrapper. Bursting from its core awaits Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers accompanied by a genuine Cameroon binder. Expect an eventful, medium to full-bodied bouquet intertwined by notes of spice, coffee, sweet tobacco, and nuts finished by a toasty crescendo. Box-pressed and primed for the ultimate experience, the Archive exemplifies Gurkha’s rich cigar-making history. With only 1,000 boxes put into production, this gem won’t be around for long.

Good news, Gurkha Archive 1887 has received a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: “creamy, woody flavors balanced by cocoa powder and spice.”

Great price for a smooth, long lasting gar. Some vein causing burn issue, but in all a great value.

I recently bought a sampler that included one of these Gurkha Archive cigars. I read the reviews as I smoked it and really enjoyed it. CI was the only place I could find this cigar. It's a really nice stick. I will buy more.

Flavor-nothing to go out of your way for, doesn’t stay burning very long, draw good, plenty of smoke when lit. Cap wrapper loose on cutting, have to use some gum, all and all a good cigar to knock around the house doing chores with. Not for public use!

The burn and consistency from cigar to cigar is unmatched in my opinion. This is my second order, I've had some sit in my humidor for 2 years (due to deployment) and they light and burn great. I'd talk about the way they smell and their flavor, but anything from Gurkha is going to be top notch.

I was happy with this cigar except the wrapper was to thin and would crack and split even with a sharp cutter and smoking indoors.

As a lover of Gurkha Cigars, naturally, when I found these (at a decent price) I got a few. After lighting up the first one, I was hooked! Gurkha has done it again! Great construction, smooth and easy draw for a mouthful of smoke that is everything as advertised! Will be keeping these in stock at home!

A little light for my taste, but a good morning stick. No problem with draw or burn. C.I. website/staff/value are still the BEST! JR try to keep up!

I recently tried the Gurka Archive and found the construction to be subpar. Apparently skimping on the amount of tobacco used, the cigar did not hold its shape during the second half of the smoke. I would not buy this cigar again.

I’ve never had a Gurkha cigar that I didn’t enjoy immensely. So many of their cigars are super expensive, and so many of them are super cheap. Frankly...at every price point, I can’t tell much difference. But I do enjoy all their products.

Bought these during a great sale on CI. Dark and oily, this is an excellent addition to the Gurkha lineup. Have to say one of my favorite Gurkhas yet! Will buy more.

These Gurkha archive torpedoes have a beautiful seamless outer rapper and has a feel like Silk taste is delicious and Mild with smoking down to the nub something that I've learned to master with this stick. The smell is terrific the smoke is creamy and as a long-time smoker first time with this particular cigar makes me want to put in a stock for the summer. This is a very enjoyable cigar

The most uneven burning cigar I have ever purchased from CI and that's a shame because it does have some good qualities such as taste. I have used two lighters of butane trying to keep these smokes even burning, wasted a lot of time and cigar doing this. Too bad I did enjoy the smoke were not for the other issues.

I've ordered the Archive Robusto cigars and loved them, so naturally when I saw the torpedos on sale I snagged them up. The Gurkha Archive is my favorite on course (golf) cigar to smoke. It lasts a whole 9 holes, great flavor. A must buy if you haven't tried them!!

Flavor much too light for my style. Bigger problem is construction. Burns unevenly and requires re-lighting several times. Expected a better quality cigar.

What's to say, most of Ghurka are swell, and these are no exception. The bonus here is Torpedo, with excellent wrapper.

I have a note in my notebook that this might be the best cigar on the planet. The Archive is smooth, rich dark and delicious. Descriptors such as "toasted nuts, creamy, chocolate and coffee" confuse me, so I'll say, it is my current bench mark as best smoke, but I am still learning and open to suggestions. :-)

Gurkha has very quickly become my favourite cigar brand, and the Archive Torpedo does not disappoint. Smooth flavor, and a nice even burn. Pair this with your favorite sipping Burbon and you have a nice relaxer for the end of your day.

Instead of the torpedo, you sent me the wrong cigar. When I made you aware of the mistake, I was apologized to and assured they would be sent. After two weeks, I called to ask when they would be coming; and was told that they were on back order, despite them being in stock when I placed the original order. So, I'm still waiting.
