Gurkha Cellar Reserve

Some things get better with age.

You’ve heard the shtick before. Gurkha cigars are great because of X, Y and sometimes even Z. The Cellar Reserve, however, represents an amazing chapter in the Gurkha line, truly capturing the essence of the company’s roots. Using exceedingly rare tobaccos, the Cellar Reserve is one of the most complex and unique cigars to bear the Gurkha name.

The Gurkha Cellar Reserve is truly a horse of a different color. Elegantly blended using 15-year old Dominican long fillers and hugged by an oily and stunning 15-year old Criollo 98’ wrapper, the Cellar Reseve epitomizes vintage tobacco blending. Never rushing the hands of time, K. Hansotia spent countless hours creating and perfecting this elusive and satisfying blend, and it shows. Upon lighting, the Cellar Reserve immediately asserts a rich and smooth bouquet beautifully displaying the tobaccos at hand. Pay close attention, as this treat subtlety delivers uber-complex flavors behind a slow and methodical burn. Puff after puff reveals unbelievably smooth flavors of oak, earth, and leather backed by a medium to full body. The experience is a nothing short of epic as each draw keeps you in suspense of what’s ahead. Packaged in attractive wine-style crates, the Cellar Reserve looks the part of a finely aged spirits, and rightfully so. 

Great news! Gurkha Cellar Reserve earned a well-deserved 90-rating, noting: "Dark and girthy with a gleaming wrapper, this large cigar strikes a balance of cocoa bean flavors, woody notes and a leathery tasting finish."

A nice, quick mellow burn
The Koi was a nice, albeit more mild than I normally smoke, but since it was a casual 30-35 minute smoke with pleasing flavor, it is a nice smoke to repeat again and again!

Gurkha Cellar Reserve
A mild yet flavorful cigar. This is not your average throw down stick to be handed out to people you barely know. This cigar should be enjoyed with close friends or just alone when you want to relax for a couple hours and really enjoy life. Don't be in a rush, quality like this is to be enjoyed.

Gurkha Cellar Reserve Solara
I'm a bit of a noob to the cigar scene but enjoy a good stick with my bourbon. So far this is the best cigar I have tried. I have been steadily migrating towards the Gurkha brand as all of their wares have smoked very well. I have enjoyed Oliva and Macanudo and CAO but so far this one has exceeded my expectations, leading me to buy a box. I'm very happy with my purchase. So far each one has been a very even smoke requiring very little if any touchup. The smoke is more complex and earthy than say the Oliva V but equally as smooth. Will be my go to until I stumble onto something better.

What a wonderful smoke. Delicious, complex and smooth, perfect draw, even burn. Couldn’t ask for more. Looking forward to tasting these once they’ve set up in my humidor for 6+ months! Highly recommend.

I think I overhyped these
I think I overhyped these in my head. Touted as the "cigar of the decade" I kind of expected much more. Dont get me wrong, it had great complex taste and ok construction but I just prefer some other higher rated sticks better. Keep in mind...while I didnt like them...one of my buddies loved them. So maybe give them a shot!

Amazing
This smoke is amazing. Completely changed my perspective about the whole brand. Now if CI could offer them up again there'd be an instant sale. NEED more to stock my humidors.

Disappointing
I got these cigars so I would have something if time was short. Luckily, I normally have the time to devote an hour or longer to a quality cigar. These were advertised as being on the full flavor end of the spectrum, 4” by 60 ring gauge. The are really more medium & somebody needs to learn the difference between 60 & closer to a 54 ring gauge.

Overrated
I’ve never had great luck with Gurkhas and these were no different. While many folks apparently love these sticks; to me, they were lackluster and I found that their strength/profile was completely overrated.

Great Even Smoke!
I am a big fan of this cigar. I bought it on a whim and was very glad I did. I normally like a bit stronger cigars these days but this is a rich, smooth cigar with an even draw. Love it!

Excellent Cigar
Took a chance that this would be an enjoyable cigar, and so happy I did. Everything about this cigar is what you expect from the best quality cigars. Great flavors, awesome burn, smooth draw. Smokes this baby till practically burning my fingers off. Highly recommend trying this if you ever get a chance.

Hard to find Ghurkas worth the wait
The 15-Year cellar aged Ghurkas are hard to find. . . and especially hard to find on sale. When a sale comes around it’s worth buying a box. Full flavored and even smoking.

Best ever!
Without a doubt the best cigar I have ever smoked. It may be a little complex for beginners, but a true aficionado will be rewarded with a memorable experience. I am on my 4th box and every one smoked without any issue.

Disappointed
I smoked two so far. Neither was a good roll. Both had multiple "hard spots". Not all that thrilled with the flavor of the cigar as you had to draw hard to smoke it.

Too early
This cigar has all the characteristics of a product put to market to soon. I'm going to try and age them in the humidor. The box they are in is plastic and didn't have a seal? They are also wrapped

Don't think these sticks live up to their rating.

Mild average smoke until about halfway finished, then gets harsh. I purchased a box, finding myself giving away half of them, now.

Didn't enjoy them as much as the price would have said. They didn't burn well at times too.

Good burn. Perfect size so I don't get yelled at for spending 2 hours on the back patio. One of my favorite Gurkhas.

OK smoke
1st time to try this Gurkha cigar. Enjoyable but not a mind-blowing experience. Have more in humidor and will light up another in a few weeks to see the difference.

Disappointed
I cannot figure what happened here. This cigar has a 15 year wrapper and all I can say is that the flavor of this cigar is linear, whereas there is no complexity at all. The straight line flavor reminds me of smoking dirt. I am sorry to post this because I am a fan of Grukha; particularly the Beauty Gordo. The price I paid was a lot more than I will usually pay for a box of cigars. I should have investigated the "Cellar Reserve" a little better. The Cellar Reserve is a bottom basement puro at an escelated price. Sorry Mr. Hansotia

Ragnar T Soderlind MSG USA SF 10th Gr/IMA ret.
I find all Cellar Reserve to be Uber Uber. Cigars The aroma is heady Full of tobacco that is just finisned the hang in the flavor barn. My wife's family is from N.C. Brunswick Co. Since 1640 aprox. Her family has been growing tobacco and henp for a long time. She said that your cigars smell like its freash out of the barn mature oakish and leathery. the fit and finish is like seeing your first sniper rifle in its case. perfect. The draw was smooth and the smoke billowing. the cigar lasted 1.5- 2 X as long. keep up the good work! Raggs
