Gurkha Centurian Double Perfecto

The ultimate Gurkha.

Gurkha Centurian is a luxuriously blended cigar, hand-crafted into a beautiful 6" x 60 Perfecto shape. This slow-burning vitola is packed chock full of high-grade Dominican tobaccos grown from Cuban seeds in the Cibao Valley, and dressed in an enchanting dark-natural Connecticut wrapper leaf. After 8 years of aging - yes, 8 long years - the medium-bodied Centurian releases an elegant array of hearty, Cuban-esque flavors with hints of spice and earthy sweetness. Incredibly complex, yet smooth as silk, the Gurkha Centurian Perfecto is one of the finest premium cigars made.

In a word....tasty.

Good Taste-But Mediocre as Cigars go
The cigar is hard to keep lit and poor construction. The over flavor was good. Only three stars.

Quite Disappointing
I'm more than half way through the box I purchased a few weeks ago and every cigar so far has unravelled in the early stages of smoking. Now I'm a huge Gurkha fan but this batch has left me very disappointed. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Please advise. Thanks.

Not so good
Not a very good cigar. Have smoked two. Burn is all over the place. Taste is ok, but no really complexity. I've had 2$ cigars that tasted and burned better than these. Thankfully came part of a sampler and only have one more left in the box.

Unhappy
I am into my second. Never give an opinion on just one. Burn is bad, typical Gurkha. The taste is foul. I don't understand how anyone could like these things.

Construction issues
So far I have smoked two of these and both of them fell apart about 1 inch into the burn. I am not impressed with these sticks at all. The flavor is not terrible but they have not lived up to the pricing of this brand at all. It's a shame, I had high expectations.

Great Taste
Too many non-differentiated Gurkhas out there, tastewise, so it becomes difficult to pick one -- but this is the best Gurkha I've ever had, tastewise.

I Keep Going Back
The Centurian is lake an old girlfriend. When I was first introduced to her years ago... WOW...The Sultan was right....Taste...Shape...Expeirience....Construction....Amazing! Then over the years things began to change. What set it apart from the others started to get compromised. Sometimes it has a benzine taste, it splits or unwraps or it burns uneven. But just like and old girlfriend, I keep going back, hoping that it will be, as it once was..............................

Gurkha Centurian a must smoke.
Absolutely my favorite cigar. Better than any cuban cigar I have ever smoked as well. Amazing flavor, even draw and just wow of a cigar.

Great cigar
These are my favorite. The first group I received was very good. So I bought a second group. These tend to peel or unwrap during smoking. A little disappointing but overall great cigar.

Gurkha did it again
Great taste, long burn, great draw. They only downside with the double perfecto design the burn isn't razor sharp or I would give it a 5 star. I still rate this excellent cigar a 92.

Patience is a virtue
I am a fan of good fermented cigars, and I have seen a lot of bad reviews by some guys on this sight, but I will have to agree with one of the reviews by a guy named Lee. You need to put these in the humidor for a few months or more, and it will take care of your complaints on the wrapper, and canoeing. I was a guy that wanted to light them up when I got these shipped to me, but all good things must wait.

Gurkha Strikes Again
Smoked the 1st two and were needing a little humidor aging. But were a great even burn

Beautiful cigar
Nice figurado, mild and smooth smoke. A couple are almost tapered too much, I have had to cut the tip back after smoking it a bit. Can't beat the value, though.

A big dissapointment
A big dissapointment. They fall apart. They don't stay lit. Overpriced. The Sultan wasn't very particular about his cigars if he ordered them twice. Try a Partagas 1845, or a Romeo y Julieta 1875, or just go for a Arturo Don Carlos or Hemingway.

Not bad
Great cigar. It needs no cutting. It pulls better than many "regular" cigars. It starts off very easy and with plenty of smoke. Once it settles in the middle, the draw is near perfect while the taste mellows out to a very comfortable experience. The only drawback is that started to unwrap on me, but the burn kept its evenness throughout. My wife bought this smoke for me, and I appreciate this different shapen overall on this late afternoon.

Truley Perfecto.
This is an expensive buy, but is worth it when you want a top-notch cigar and are willing to spend a little more to get it. A rich, medium bodied cigar, it smokes well right down to the nub. As with all the better Gurkhas, it doesn't leave you feeling as if an army bivouacked in your mouth the next morning.

Gurkha Centurian
They are my favorite cigars, when I place an order you send them to me fast and they are always in great condition. Love them and you keep up the good work.

Gurkha Centurian Double Perfecto
I am a novice cigar smoker, so I have been trying a variety of cigars. The Gurkha Centurian double perfecto was a pleasant surprise. It is the best so far for me. It was very smooth, nice slow burn and no after taste at all. I will be ordering more in the near future.

Looks like I am not the only one with construction issues
Great tasting cigar, but it burned really uneven and the wrapper started coming off. It required way too much attention to keep it going. I am going to let the rest of the ones I ordered rest in my humidor for a few weeks and see if it gets any better.

Awesome shape, taste amazing
Well, kept them in the humidor for 10 days and then i smoked one. Really soft and light in terms of weight. Burns great and uniform. Taste is creamy, nutty, medium body, a bit bitter at the end. Excellent smoke for people who don t like spices or full body cigars.

Ghurka Double Perfecto Centurian
Superb taste!

Overrated
Bought through MMAO, fairly cheap. Got what I paid for. First two were very harsh in the middle, third one a little better after two weeks in the humidor. Many better Gurkha options in that price range.

Overall enjoyable smoke
Very enjoyable smoke. Has a tough time with unraveling.

Darn good smoke
The Centurion is a darn good smoke. The more I smoke Gukha, the more I like them.

What a hype
Taste, I think, is good, but the burn issues make me think twice about pulling one out of my humi. A buddy of mine once remarked "it looks like you're smoking one of those exploding cartoon cigars" and I agree. The wrapper ALWAYS comes unfurled and so many canoes that I could host a regatta down the river. When I bought these I had read the "gurkha is a hype brand, overpriced and under-quality" and I've got to say I haven't seen evidence to the contrary. Had I paid the "300+" MSRP on these I would be super peeved.

the worst Cigar for the high price
the worst Cigar,it peeling the outer leaves falling in part,hard like a rock,no draw at all,I trow the Cigar away,what a Waste.

Very Good cigar. ..enough with the silly descriptions
I'm not a big believer in these descriptions of cigars having hints of nuts, earth and leather (take that belt out of your mouth)..however, I was never a big fan of gurkha anything, but these centurians are very mellow yet profound, and rich tasting. Worth a try. .

Not for the price
Got a single in my sampler assortment the wrapper came of 1/4 of the way in to the smoke. Had a decent taste of pepper and smoke notes of a liqorishy flavor. If the wrapper wouldn't have came apart might have been a pleasant smoke. I'd stick with a Hemingway perfecto any day over this.

Gurkha Centurian
My new favorite! Love the rich creamy flavors from start to finish. Nice subtle flavors of spices and nuts with a very mild kick at the end. A great smoke from start to finish and pairs well with anything from a fine scotch to a crisp lager!

BRING BACK THE ROMANCE
HEY GURKHA, FIX THIS THING. BRING BACK THE ROMANCE. THIS STICK IS LIKE AN OLD GIRLFRIEND. AWESOME, ENTICING, FLAVORFUL AND PERFECT. SHE WOULD MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN! THEN THINGS CHANGED. PRIMARILY IN THE CONSTRUCTION. THE BANDS DONT FIT. THE TIPS CRACK, THE BURN GOES UNEVEN AND ITS LOST ITS LUSH FLAVOR. BUT JUST LIKE AN OLD GIRLFRIEND, I KEEP GOING BACK HOPING THE FIND WHAT WAS ONCE THERE. ...............

Wait for Perfection!
This is about the Centurian not the style. I bought a box of 12 box pressed XO about 10 months ago and after waiting a week to have one I was not impressed....but hold on. I left them there for 10 months and one day decided to have one as a yard-gar and whoa... hold on. They needed some time! I damn near chain smoked the box and hell no I aint sharing. Maybe they needed age and humidity, who knows but they are fantastic now. I keep these on the same shelf with my JC's, Opus, Master Blends, Litto's...etc. Get you some and if you dont like them at first let them sit and age a bit.

Gurkha. Smoke one of these and then follow my sugestions and then smoke it. You just may have a winner.
The Centurian does look like a good cigar and does have a good taste. The problems are that the torpedo style isn't working. The leaf used to wrap the cigar is EXTREMELY thin and unravels after the cigar burns for two minutes. Then the paper unravels and the cigar starts to canoe (burn unevenly). It really is an unpleasant smoke. I believe that Gurkha needs to double or triple wrap this cigar and that may solve all of the issues. One last thing, maybe add a little oil to the wrapper may help it as well. But definitely the added wrappers needs to be done. I gave this cigar a 2 because it looks good and has a good flavor. The wrapper, uneven burn, and price brought it down.

this one will make you stand above the regular cigar league.
Real man buy real cigars, there fore these are real cigars. the smell and the structure of this cigar will make you stand up in a different level. people will ask you, what are you smoking? what is that? it look's arrogant & fancy, where are you from? this cigar i really recommend it to all cigar smoker.

Ok taste
Sultan of Brunei must like cigars that do not burn right. Maybe you have to soak them in oil for a proper burn

Just a fine cigar... Period!
Had one of these come in a sampler pack (CI All Star Summer Sizzler ) which by the way is an excellent deal. Anyway, so this beauty is one fine stogie. Great flavor, smooth draw, very well made cigar. I'd pick up the deal now but I just got another order in and my wife would kill me if she knew I placed another order, so I'll have to wait to get more of these. You will not be disappointed at all... Get some!

A Must Have!
“WOW! I received one of these beauties in a sampler recently. I read some mixed reviews, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a pure pleasure to smoke. It was silky smooth, with a beautiful dark, naturally fermented wrapper. It did not burn evenly, but had a solid ash, and the smoke was thick and billowing. It was a true full-flavored cigar that was not over-powering in strength. The dominant flavors were cream, coffee, leather, and spice (pepper and nutmeg). With hints of cocoa, cedar and nuttiness (creamy cashew). The flavors were consistent and smooth. I paired it with water to experience it's natural smoke, but it would have paired nicely with just about any beverage. If you haven't smoked one of these yet you REALLY should! A must have in any humidor.”

Well presented, consistent, flavorful cigar at a bargain price
The Gurka Centurian Double Perfecto has become my go to cigar. It's a really well presented, consistent, flavorful cigar. Nicely rolled, even burn, generally with an even draw. If the draw on a particular cigar is a little tight, I clip about a quarter inch off of the draw end, and its just right. Creamy with some spice, a little pepper, but not enough to bite. I've had somewhere between 60 and 100 of these cigars. When I offer one to a friend who hasn't smoked one before I always get a positive response. Generally they think its an expensive cigar. At the great price that CI makes these fine cigars available, I share my stash of these double perfectos regularly.
Customer Testimonials
The Best Gurkha to date. Absolutely top notch.
Tastes great, especially at the nub. But I dare you to try and get one of these to burn evenly.
