Gurkha Archive Torpedo

A nod to 20 years of success

A 2010 release, the Gurkha Archive 1887 was a hats off and congratulations to K. Hansotia 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.”

Weekday Smoke
Medium to full bodied middle of the road cigar. I try to save my better and usually more expensive sticks for the weekend but these are really good for a weekday stick.

Bought on impulse and love it
I bought the Gurkha Archive Torpedo on an impulse while I was buying something else. That turned out to be a good impulse buy. I love this cigar and will buy it again.

Gurkha Archive Torpedo....Good not Great
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!

Really enjoy the hints of flavors in this one. Burns right, rolled tight, price is right. Not a fan of torpedo but I'm getting used to these.

Gurka Archive
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.

Ghurka Archive torpedo
I I have bought the Ghurka Archives before and liked them. Nice flavor and a consistent burn. As usual, I am pleased with the service CI delivered.

How do they do it?
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.

An archive of flavor
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.

Ghurka at its best
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

Disappointed
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.

Great Slow Smoker
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!!

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

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

If you know of a better cigar
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 Aims to please
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.

Ehhh...
I love Gurkha but this one was a little disappointing. The construction was good as expected. The burn needed retouching. The smoke was smooth and for the first third only cedar and pepper. Half way brought out the espresso/coffee and then it got mushy and hot. Price was good. Fairly enjoyable but expected more. I gave one to a friend that has been smoking cigars for 50 years. I also gave him a Gurkha Warpig, he liked the Warpig better. So do I.

Underwhelmed - - - - - -
Got a bundle of 20 of these Archive Ghurka's on a MMAO/free shipping promo deal. Really thought I was getting something maybe at least a Little Special with these Ghurka cigars, but I'll tell you right now-- - - - - - they're just disappointingly PLAIN JANE tasting !!! !!! They burn Okay and seemed to be rarely rolled too tight (tuff draw) but truth be told------I've had Factory Throwouts with more pleasing Taste !!! To say I'm let down is the understatement of the decade. A wise man once said >>> Hindsight is 20/20 !!! !!! !!!
