Gurkha Black Dragon


Behold, the Black Dragon.

Few cigars can match the caliber of Gurkha handmade cigars. Considered to be some of the world's finest and most prestigious super-premiums, the Gurkha brand represents a small-batch selection of ultra-elusive cigars that routinely receive top ratings in addition to 'Best of the Best' honors from the Robb Report.

Always pushing the envelope with exotic, high-end blends, Gurkha got another trick up its mighty sleeve, and it's called the Black Dragon.

Dressed in a dark and toothy, 5-year old Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, the Black Dragon hails from Honduras and combines a vintage mixture of Dominican long-leaf tobaccos secured within a Cameroon binder. The smoke is thick and chewy, with a rich, leathery core and elegant hints of earth, complemented by an assortment of sweet spices on the finish. Medium in body and complex, yet buttery smooth, the Black Dragon is unlike any Gurkha you've tried before.

It's a "Drag" alright
I'm sorry to say that the "Dragon" in the Black Dragon really stood out in this 5-pack. It smoked excessively at rest but did not draw well at all. When I was able to get some smoke in my mouth it was mellow but not medium to full bodied. I don't write reviews but the poorer quality of this cigar made me do it. Rolled very well but a poor smoke in my humble opinion.

They were ok. Good draw with a peppery flavor that stays consistent through the entire smoke. Well crafted cigar.

Let them sit in your humidor at least a month. They are probably ok after that. Otherwise, for me it’s a no.

Really Good
Really good smoke. Nice dark Maduro, burns well, plenty of smoke with a nice draw and finishes well. I'll watch for another sale.A CI competitor however sells an over run model of this stick at a far better price.

The bottom line, enjoyed it.
Admittedly, I don't have much experience with Gurkhas. My observation is that it makes a TON of smoke out of the lit end, and only a moderate amount in the mouth. The flavor was excellent, but the constant drama of campfire smoke, and having to two-puff to get what I wanted, left me with a large cigar disappearing in less than an hour. Can't argue with the taste though, and I just ordered a sampler pack of 35 assorted Gurkhas.

great until the wrapper unravels
Thought it was just a fluke when the first one I smoked unraveled half way through, but the same thing happened the next two I smoked. Can't rate them too high when the construction is so poor.....

Great Cigar
I bought this as part of a sample pack. This is a great cigar and my favourite of the sample pack. I would highly recommend to anyone who likes a medium to full bodied smoke. Each cigar was very well made, tasted great and burned evenly. I will be ordering more of these babies!

Superb BIG Cigar !!!
Miles and Miles ahead of Ghurka's I've had in the past. This 7 X 56 Black Dragon had a stunningly pleasant taste & aroma. The draw was as close to Dead Perfect as one could expect. Plan ahead when you are going to smoke one of these as you'll spend more time than you'd ever dream finishing one ! ! ! I bought these as a ' 20 pack ' and they arrived as 4 packs of 5 each. I'm NOT so negative on Ghurka's anymore !! !!

Gurka Black Dragon Imperial Presidente
Bought 30 to take golfing, smoked at least 20 that week. it has a great draw, last at least 8 or 9 holes. They stay lit and burn great, even waiting to putt. The finish is incredible. I will always look to pick more up when the price is right. Highly recommended. For a real treat alternate between the Black Dragon and Widow Maker Maduro, both pair well with Four Roses single barrel or Woodford Reserve sherry casked.

NOT FOR THE TIMID!
Very full bodied flavorfull smoke. Like strong espresso and unsweetened chocolate. Flavors are dramatic. Good with a lighter colored whiskey like jameson's but with a peety scotch it might be too much on the pallet.

Great premium cigar at excellent price!
Ordered these as part of a 10 pack promotion from Cigars International and it was a great buy! Cigars came in an excellent presentation and delivered every bit of the Gurka quality, with an even burning and super smooth draw. Would buy again!

So-so
These are so-so cigars. Draw is way to easy and ash doesn't holdup and drops off to early. There okay for a round of golf smoke. Probably won't get these again

Should read reviews
Found they had a strange smell when I opened them, almost chemical, then read a review stating the same issue with the 10pack. I let them dry out for a few days then put them alone and naked in a humidor for a week or so . Better, but still a slight aftertaste. Would try them again to see if this was a fluke, but not from that 10pack deal

Have not smoked as yet but in my experience all previous Gurkha products have been excellent.

Somewhat dissappointed
Okay, but I've had better cigars that were cheaper. Well constructed and great burn. Oddly seemed to produce volumes of smoke. First puff was bitter and I thought a bought some losers. Subsequent draws the bitter went away, but just not much flavor. Had other Gurkhas before that were much better.

Doo-Doo
This cigar is doo-doo. I saw the review from October of this year and thought I would still take a chance because I really like Gurkha. I just figured the reviewer got a bad batch. The cigar didn't smell like doo-doo, but all other aspects of it were terrible. The construction was fragile and almost impossible to get an even light. Even if an even light was achieved, within five pubbs, the burn was either uneven or "hollowed out" the middle. I would have been better off buying some magicians old flash paper and lighting it. It gets one star, ONLY because I can't give it zero.

Gurkha Black Dragon
my five pack did not seem fresh, like the rest of my order. Tasted a little stale. The ridiculously large label when carefully remove caused the wrapper to start unraveling also. This cigars poor care prior to me receiving it, makes my review worthless. Maybe if I received a fresh pack I could have provided an accurate review.

Good bunch gone bad!
I have had Black Dragons before in sampler packs, but this ten pack I received was no good! They smelled of ammonia,or eucalyptus, or something terrible. I read up on this and from what I can tell they were nor properly cured or stored. Too bad. I have read that this can be fixed if you let them set out for a while then re-humidify them. I am going to try it to see if I can save these beauties. Probably won't order this ten pack again. Sorry CI. I Have ordered many, many cigars from CI without a single stick being soured like these. I still have faith in CI to continue delivering quality cigars and intend to keep ordering cigars from these guys.
