Gurkha Select.
Delicious cigar, soft loose roll, burned kinda funny, some tunneling, had to touch-up with a lighter a couple times. Overall, not a bad cigar, you can't beat the flavor, excellent taste profile...

Easy Draw, Bad Burn
Very soft construction. Easy draw, smooth taste. Burned down in a cork screw pattern and was near impossible to keep lit.

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.

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.

Smooth operator
A nice smooth smoke but not weak. I enjoyed the first two out of the box, easy draw and even burn.

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.

Not for the faint of heart.
This cigar starts out and ends very full and very flavorful. Heavy notes of leather and cedar with a tiny bit of pepper on the finish.

An OK smoke
Overall a pretty mediocre smoke as far as taste and smoothness. Make sure they rest a few days in your humidor. They tend to run if not.

I had previously bought a smaller size of this cigar and took a chance on the larger size.
One of my newest favorite cigars! Well constructed, great draw, and excellent taste.

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

great taste.
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

Awesome! Your ring is beautiful like its construction, flavors and notes of earth, cedar, leather and pepper is great. The combustion is slow and even burn equal, very excellent smoke.

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.
