I’d say that this isn’t a bad cigar, but there wasn’t anything that stood out to me.

So So
The Chairman was a little disappointing, no depth of flavor, earth and leather with hints of cocoa but you need to concentrate the first 2/3rds to really find it. The last third brought the pepper though not overwhelmingly so. It served as a drive to and from work smoke but not something I’d sit down with to enjoy. That ring could use a bit less glue as well, it was a real pain to remove once that time came. I tore the wrapper on a couple sticks just getting it off and each time had to peel it like a tough piece of fruit. Maybe flavors would improve if given some maturing time.

Rich and Smooth cigar
This cigar has smooth but bold flavor of earthy aged tobacco with a finish of pepper rich flavor lingering through your palate. Nice finish down to the end.

This is a good cigar for the money, a medium bodied, spice, cedar, leathery pepper flavor to it. Nice draw, even burn and a lot of smoke. Good aroma. I found this nice with my morning coffee. If your wife is busting your chops on $$$ spent on cigars as mine does, this is an awesome stick for the money.

Another great cigar.
I've grown to place Gurkha on a pedestal and this cigar reaffirms why. Beautiful on the outside, smooth smoking on the inside. Smooth from start to finish, no overpowering flavor but just right in all aspects. K Hansotia has lightened my wallet once again and I couldn't be happier about it.

Never fails to disappoint.
13 years aging with Gurkha and months and months at 72//72 in my humidor and still burn uneven and too hot to hold 1/3 of the way down. First Gurkha can't say I liked.

Enjoy It
A great go-to everyday smoke. Even burn flavorful but smooth cigar. I enjoy it from beginning to end and rarely ever have to relight it. Lasts a long time to considering its size. Highly recommend if you’ve never tried it.

Gurkha’s Chairman's Select resides at the head of my humidor
Gurkha’s Chairman's Select resides at the head of my humidor. I am and always will be a huge Gurkha fan, but this one is already mature and doesn’t need any special attention. The Chairman is always ready for any occasion and pairs well with everything, I know because I have personally put him through the tests on numerous occasion...

Must try
The Gurkha Chairman Select is perfectly rolled. Initially, you takes notes of oak and cedar. As you progress, you will taste earth notes and vanilla. It has a nice burn smooth draw and finishes with a robust amount of smoke. A must try for all afecionados - JAG

Chairman’s Select...a STATEMENT cigar!
This is a substantial cigar with an impressive label. The label appears to be engraved (or maybe embossed) with copper ink...very classy and a great first impression. The wrapper is impeccable. The cigar is somewhat bold, but smooth throughout...quality tobacco with notes of baking spices, toasted white bread and a hint of mild pepper. The burn is fairly even, but maybe a bit hot near the end. This seems to improve with additional aging in a well-regulated humidor. Overall, a quality Gurkha cigar that certainly holds its own and is not out of place in the Chairman’s humidor.

A great smoke from the brilliant cigar makers at Gurkha
Great flavor in this smoke. Don’t let the short length fool you—you’ll be able to enjoy this tasty stick for an hour or better. I used a v-cut on this perfecto, and my smoke was just that—Perfect!

BRAVO GURKHA! This was a Real Treat.
I was given one of these by my property manager. I'm happy he did because it was outstanding. I have always been curious about them, but did not know them and never ventured forth to buy them. From the start the cigar built quick character with a little pepper and a medium/bold flavor and stayed that way to the end. The burn, draw, smoke and construction was good. I smoke a cigar fast. Many go sideways. This one did not need correcting. I think they are much better than the 96 rated Oliva V Melanio I just bought out of curiosity. Did I get lucky with one good Chairman Select? Will it continue? Who Knows. I hope so. I will buy a bunch, stick them in the Humi for awhile and let you know. Note: breaking off the little the pigtail on the end was not enough to get a consistent draw. Be prepared to cut up a little further to open op the draw. BRAVO GURKHA!

Taken your time at the beginning.
This is one of my favourites! Took a bit to get into it given the shape, and initial puffs end up tasting more of campfire than anything else. Once you get into it, though it is amazing.

Like managing a small brush fire....
Don't pay too much for these. Very nconsistent quality. The first 1/3 of the cigar is like managing a small brush fire - runs, tunneling, uneven burn, burns hot as heck. Settled in about midway through with tons of smoke but little flavor. They look great but are very average to low quality. Had I not bought these on the "Make an Offer" portion of the site I would be really mad.

Wonderful cigars
I really don't understand some of the bad reviews, nice medium strength cigar. Creamy taste of chocolate and leather. All I can say is to check your humidor and let these beauties rest in it a while before sparking one up. I love 'em.
4 out of 5
Above average Gurkha
I pulled this one from the humidor with the standard Gurkha expectation - it could be good or it may tunnel and/or require frequent relighting. I pulled the first stick from the pack (acclimated for a month), cut about 1/4" off the tip, gave it a long light and surprisingly enjoyed an even and enjoyable burn for the next hour. The flavor richness and abundance of smoke make this a very pleasant smoke for $6. I'd recommend them to anyone who appreciates a med-strong, full-flavor stick that is priced right.

Gurkha Chairmans Select Rothschild
I got a pair of these in a sampler that I bought about half a year ago. I smoked the first one after it rested in the humidor for 2 weeks. It was very bland. Since I wasn't very excited about smoking the second one, it sat in the humidor for about six months. Wow, what a difference some curing made! I was so deeply impressed with the burn, draw, and flavor that I'm really considering ordering a box to store for at least a year before smoking. IF YOU BUY THESE, LET THEM SEASON FOR A LONG TIME. You won't regret it.

Chairman's Rejects
Disappointed with this smoke. Looks good, but pretty much flavorless. Kinda muddy and stale. Doesn't hold burn and need to keep relighting. Would be ashamed to share with friends.

Poor build quality
I was surprised at the poor quality of these cigars. About 2/3rds of the cigars in the box were hollow making for a poor smoke. The burned hot and uneven.
2 out of 5
Nothing Notable
I really wish I could rate this 2.5 stars, as that's pretty much how I feel about it- totally neutral, but I'd rate it two star before I rated it a three. The draw was hard in the beginning, but opened up after it burned for a while. Flavors were muddled and indistinguishable. Nothing stood out- it just sort of sat there, heavy on the tongue. I didn't taste anything that I could make out. Just a muddy tobacco flavor. It did burn well , and produced good smoke. I have three left and I doubt I'll throw them out, but I don't see myself reaching for one any time soon.

Not bad, but on the light side.
I was surprised to see all the bad reviews. I thought this cigar was pretty good overall. The flavor was nice even though it is on the light side. To be honest, it was a little weaker than I thought it would be, but still had a decent flavor. Smoke production was good on each puff. Did burn unevenly at the beginning but one lighting adjustment fixed it for the remainder of the smoke no problem. Overall, it is a pretty option for someone who is starting to smoke cigars or someone who prefers a milder stick. That is who I recommend this to. Thanks!

Gurkha Chairman Select Cigar
I don't want to give it a 1 star because there is some smoke that comes and and it tastes great. But having said that I was highly disappointed in this cigar. It honestly will not stay lit any more than than a minute. I have to smoke it fast and keep lighting it which should not be the case with the price of this cigar. The cigar gets hot real quick and feels soft and easily breakable if held the wrong way. I love Gurkha products and haven't been disappointed in many of their products, but this one is by far the worst for the price and it being a premium smoke. I thought it may just be one bum cigar but it was a few out of the batch of 5 that smoked all the same.

WORST stick ever!
This were the worst cigars I've ever purchased. Terrible. I bought 10. I smoked 4, threw away the other 6. They were that bad. Extremely hard draw, even worse burn. All four of those I smoked burnded down one side and no amount of re-lighting could get the other side to burn. Coulda got a hernia from the draw. CI should be embarrassed to sell there. Thery're terrible!

Gurkha Chairman, not a good cigar
in the past 30 years I have smoked a lot of really good cigars. This is not a good cigar. I have had so many bad experience's with Gurkha that I had told myself never to buy anything by them again. But I decided to try these. Big mistake. Inconsistent flavor, does not burn evenly

Enjoyed the taste, very hard draw and a very uneven burn.

terrible flavor and (no flavor really); tastes like the end of the gar when you are done. Ghurka should be embarrassed by this little 4 inch perfecto. I paid $35 for 10 and they belong in the garbage...thats where they went.
I would give it ZERO stars if possible, it didn't even burn well

Fun to Watch
Gurkha just missed their usual premium mark with this blend, however, the "Star Wars" princess hair-do on the head is certainly entertaining to look at.
