Gurkha Black Ops Rubicon

Rubicon

noun Ru·bi·con \'rü-bi-kän\

: a bounding or limiting line; especially: one that when crossed commits a person irrevocably.

Black Ops Cigars have had this same effect on many-a-connoisseur since arriving on the scene not too long ago, but with their newest, and quite possibly best release yet, the line will be crossed, and everyone who dare cross it will be committed for life. There will be no turning back, but the silver lining is, when you cross this line, you’ll never want to. Black Ops Rubicon is a bold statement, one you will have to try to believe. Coming in rugged, military-grade ammo cans, these limited edition gems are a rare collector’s item you won’t want to be without. The pristine quality of the cigars only puts the cherry atop this cigar sundae of goodness.

Rubicon, the blend that will have you committed from the very first draw, looks tasty enough to eat. Arriving with guns blazing in a Sun-drenched Pennsylvania Broadleaf maduro wrapper, Rubicon is easy on the eyes to say the least. Lying just beneath, a refined Brazilian binder hugs long-leaf fillers from the Dominican, Honduras, and Panama. If you weren’t counting, that’s a 5-country onslaught on flavor that you can only hope your palate will be prepared for. Complex notes of sweet cream, coffee, oak, and black cherry all make appearances throughout the duration of this medium to full-bodied treat. With a blend as rare as this, it should go without saying that quantities are extremely limited. My recommendation…hop on these bad boys early, before this gravy train comes to a halt.

Yummy! Do not be deceived..
Excellent and I will order them again. Fresh, draw is easy and Aroma was beautiful. I was smoking at the square in our downtown area and everybody loved it the smell and the look of Gurkha warrior. I received many good compliments from people Who had 2nd hand smoke from my Gurkha Black Ops for free. 🤠

Always liked the taste of the black cherry which first piked my interestt in this cigar. A smooth and great aroma. The finish is as good as the start. The ash holds well.

First time purchasing this cigar. They are very underrated in my opinion. Of the various new sticks that I’ve tried over the summer this turned out to be one of my favorites by far. Great flavor, robust without being harsh. I would definitely buy this again.

I normally like Gurkha but these were not the quality that I expected. Loose roll, burned quickly and trouble keeping it lit. Many of the cigars had bad spots which effected the draw, some of them should have been rated as seconds. However I am loyal to Gurkha and will continue smoking them.

I can't say anything bad about this cigar. Nice draw, super even burn with no canoeing. Arrived super freash, and wish I had purchased more of them. Their price was well worth this smoke, and by the way it wasn't expensive. Try em' I think you'll like them.

About the items included.
Cigars for the most part are just fine. This is for the other items you get...the ammo case is cool, its what I expected. The knife on the other hand is a folder, not full tang like in the image. The blade I would say is good, its not loose, seems sharp but I would have liked the full tang blade other then a folder. Cant complain to much though since it was on the cheap for the most part. Thank you all for providing this cigar service. Keep up the good work.

I like the cigars and I like the box. The knife is a little bigger than I expected, I was hoping for a knife that would fit in the box and I could use for cutting the cigars. I put a different knife in the box and I have the other one on my night table in case someone tries to steal my Rubicons. Overall a cool product.

Great Broadleaf blend - burn another story
This is a great blend as I've been enjoying PA Broadleaf and it resurgence. Then to mention the Panamanian filler is a great move offering nuanced flavors. But I am only three weeks into a bundle and the two cigars that I've tried have not burnt extremely well. Not so much construction, but things I sense indicate the need of an extended humidor time and I took off all the gold foil on the sticks as well (I never quite understand why, I am smoking a cigar not ammo!) But seriously, its a good cigar and with more age the ash is less likely to flake and WOW the flavors!? I'd say these are worth having in your humidor, just give them some time to hang out & remove that gold foil please, it doesn't help with aging and your neighboring sticks might appreciate it.

Great cigar! A little milder than I expected, so I had 2... then I saw God. He was also smoking a Rubicon Black Ops. Took it out of his almighty mouth to tell me to ruck-up, soldier on, and that the NY Giants would surprise people this year. It was awesome

Not a good smoke at all.
I love good cigars. Aside from the wrapper, this cigar is just hot air. It burns horrible and has no flavor. I might smoke an ok cigar to its end. I threw this away at the 1/3 mark, especially since it stove pipped in one spot 1/2 way down and has little flavor besides a hint of cedar and paper. Don't waste your time

Great Golf cigar and every day type smoke.
Great Price for an above average cigar. I bought these for golf because the price was right and I tried one on my porch and it was really good. The wrapper was tight and the draw was smooth and easy, both are very important to me because I don't want extra distractions on the course. The flavor is good medium strong not very complex but no bad after taste, I was very happy with the experience. Highly recommended for your regular rotation.

Rubicon vs Ghost Angel.
Just received my order. Very quick and on time. I have always been a fan of Gurkha Ghost Angels, a friend of mine suggested I try the Rubicon. I was very surprised when I first smelled and felt these. After lighting one up the Rubicon came very close to the Ghost Angel in smoke, burn it may have been just a little stronger and darker but a very good smoke. Well worth the price. The knife was a little bit larger the I expected, more like my Hunting knife large and not folding has a good blade and nice holder, just can not put it in my pocket. Over all a great cigar and a good knife. If you enjoy the Ghost Angel you should try these. Thank CI. The way I am smoking these will have to order more soon.

Disappointed with promo
First off the Rubicon Torpedo is great, great taste,flavor and its just right. BUT your promo to get a bundle with an ammo can and knife I was disappointed. I understand waiting for suppliers but the knife is totaly different than advertised, its the same as the Beserker knife and not a lock blade which I was hoping for. At least the smokes didnt let me down.

Nothing to write home about...
..a little bit over-hyped, but, then again, I smoked two from the set... decided to let the others rest til Winter. But, one of them had a very tight draw to it. 2nd one wasn't bad, but, nothing extraordinary. I'm hoping the rest of them will make more of an impression in a month or two.

Rubicon torpedo
I rated this stick a 3 only because I feel it's better than 2 stars but couldn't give it 2 1/2. It's a good starting cigar with a heavy medium smoke, good burn and decent ash. As the cigar burns a little over 1/2 way it gets harsh and hot. The last 1/4 is crazy with tar taste and has to be tossed. On sale it's good enough to try but I find a LOT of cigars that are more deserving of my attention and hard earned cigar dollars.

Op out
Bought three cigars at a bargain. Black ops rubicon was one. Which was good until it started to burn faster on the side. Good while it lasted. I was more impressed with Mark Twain's.

The Rubicon
It has a nice slow burn. There are subtle hints of flavor such as spice and cocoa. Very nice finish as well. Good one to have in your humidor. Strong flavor, not a quick smoke. Enjoy this one slowly.

Exceptionally mild, great value.
Great value! This is a good cigar. Mild spice im the first third with notes of leather fall leaves and cardamom. There is a light sweetness and very fragrant smoke. These flavors get accentuated in the last third with a mild and palatable bitter bite. Extremely good construction leavimg a clean line and running over an inch and a half without ash fall. I as a rule avoid cigars with a flashy presentation however if you are looking to step up from a light Connecticut to a slightly bolder flavor profile, this is a good choice.

Great Deal!!
They came fast and in good shape. As per all of the Gurkha brand I have tried they did not disappoint! Very nice draw and nice flavor. Overall a good cigar!!

Bitter
Bitter tasting, one-dimensional cigar. Poorly made. Wrapper was torn on most cigars. I think that's why they wrap it in that gold paper. VERY disappointing. Not sure what the 5-star raters were smoking, but it couldn't have been this !

Not good.
This past spring while picking tomatoes in my garden I accidentally let a stink bug fly into my mouth. This stick reminded me of that.

Black Ops Rubicon
I ordered a bundle of 15 of these on a Halloween special. They were priced to good to pass it up and I had heard good things about them so I thought I'd give em a shot. They came in fast as usual, and they are absolutely beautiful cigars. Very well made and they smell amazing. Unfortunately, they'll have to sit in my humidor for at least a couple of weeks....but I can't wait to fire one up. As always, I'm very pleased with the service from Cigars International. My orders always ship out fast and arrive in perfect condition.

Don't waste your time
Poor flavor, kept anticipating for it to show some character and it was a total disappointment all the way to the end, I'll be giving these away soon!

Seriously Remarkable!
A real surprise with this cigar! I received my first in a sample pack and it sat in the humidor for a few weeks until I got bored and tried it. To my surprise, this is seriously an outstanding cigar. Smooth draw from the start with crisp undertones, no bite all the way to the finger and a perfect burn. I purchased a few just to make sure it wasn't a fluke but sure enough, the quality is there and it was consistent. I've never found a cigar like it honestly. Kudos on a perfectly prices, well balanced cigar. Just try it! I've passed a few to some fellow connoisseurs and they were just as impressed as I am. Outstanding!!

Will definitely be stocking up on these beauties. Nice even burn, packed with flavor, one of the best experiences I've had in a while

Nice wrapper, ok smoke
I will start off by saying what a great promotional item from Gurkha. Anything that resembles a badass mans-man cigar has got to be worth a try. However, to be completely honest, this is not my favorite cigar. First, the rubicon does have a nice flavor. It starts off with a bit of a punch, and continues down to the nub. However, I am really disappointed with the burn as not one, but three have poorly held an even burn. I had to re-light all of my cigars on several occasions to continue smoking. It's almost as there is not enough tobacco filler to keep a nice burn without having to continuously puff. Also, I was left with a very pungent chemical taste after each smoke, something that really surprised me. I will finish this review by saying I'm glad to have tried Black Ops Rubicon as this was truly an eye catcher. But if you are a seasoned smoker, I think you will be disappointed. This will, however, be a great gift to a buddy who is just starting out in the cigar high-life.

Completely Unexpected!
This is an outstanding cigar! A smooth, flavorful and consistent cigar with creamy, exotic and sweet undertones with an absolutely beautiful draw. I enjoyed the smoke as much as the taste. The wrapper suggests an aggressive cigar with expected flavored to match but it's not, I can assure you! This is truly a hidden gem with the absolute most relaxing presentation I have ever found in a cigar. If you don't at least try this cigar, you will be missing out on a serious game changer. I have never written a review on a cigar but this one really impressed me all the way through. Absolutely outstanding! Gurkha, you did a great job with this cigar.

I liked it :-)
I got one of these in the "12 Days of Christmas" sampler a few months ago. I was really pleased with this cigar. I'm not an aficionado and I can't really pick out individual flavors. But this thing was big, bold and delicious. I sat out back on my porch with a drink and enjoyed this thing for like an hour and a half. For me it was a finger burner, which 9 times out of ten, cigars I get are not. I think the price point on these guys is a little bit over priced. But honestly I really liked it. If a 5 pack came on sale for a good price I would totally get one.

THE BOOM STICK
Bought these as going away gifts for some service members and the presentation was everything one could ask for... particularly since they were gun pilots and the cigars were made to resemble munitions. Not a bad smoke either. Medium smoke with a nice finish. Perfect for everyone.

Nice
Not a Gurkha fan, but got a couple in a sampler and have to admit, it's a great stick. Oily wrapper, full flavored with a great smooth taste.

Battlefield Good
Ordered it to get free shipping and the surprise was on me. I'm loving it. Dry draw is good, maduro wrapper makes all the difference, the binder and fillers is a medium taste. Cigar is well structured. This is comparable to these types of cigars Gurkha War Pig or Torano Vituoso or Fonseca Aranas.

Black Ops Rubicon Torpedo
Bought a mazo of these for a bachelor party in Wisconsin. Received in great condition as always. Promptly put them in the humidor to rest for a couple weeks. Not all 12 guys smoked cigars but all tried one. Everyone agreed that these were a great stick for the price. Some guys were drinking whiskey but a majority were drinking Miller lite or Coors. Mine lasted well over an hour. Never uneven. Had a great mellow taste of leather and black cherry. Great aroma. Gurkhas always have a different flavor and aroma to them and these didn't disappoint. We'll probably order another mazo and keep it for myself.
