Gurkha Classic Havana

A Classic Blend!

After years of searching years for the perfect concoction of wrapper, binder, and filler, the guys at Gurkha have uncovered a Cuban-esque blend for the record books. They took their time with this one, meticulously tweaking the blend over twenty times until they knew they had achieved the perfect Havana flavor profile. Introducing Gurkha Classic Havana Blend, a nod to those revered blends of Cuba’s past. 

Hailing from the fertile soils of Nicaragua that prove time and time again to encompass many of the same qualities as the revered Cubans of the past, Classic Havana Blend delivers in spades. Rocking a milk chocolaty Mexican San Andres wrapper, this gem begs to be lit at first sight. Medium-bodied and brimming with flavor, this box-pressed beauty permeates with notes of spice, earth, and nuts. If you yearn for that cherished Cuban taste or are looking to experience something darn close for the first time, Gurkha Classic Havana Blend is the choice cut for you.

Quite good but not great
This is a solid cigar, with a medium body and good construction/draw/burn. There's caramel and earth and other flavors, but like most Gurkhas, this just isn't for me. I will keep trying them from time-to-time, but they just don't have the umph that I'm looking for.

Would not buy.
Recieved this cigar in the Mystery Sampler. Good looks and a good draw, but that's about it. It started off kind of harsh. By the second third it got a little better. Definitely earthy and some spice and a very slight hint of chocolate "Just barely". I definitely would not buy it.

Okay
No real flavor. A Little harsh at the beginning.

Smooth and Delicious
I enjoyed this cigar very much as it was nicely balanced with a creamy well aged tobacco finish!

Found in a sampler - became my #1 Gurkha!
First ran into this cigar in my Gurkha Gargantuan Grab Bag sampler from CI. I was so surprised by this gem that I ordered another five pack. This has become my #1 Gurkha so far! The construction, draw and light were all excellent for me. The flavor and aroma were very distinct. I pair it with my favorite rum, sit back and enjoy the smoke.

Very Pleasantly Surprised
I was unsure about this stick when I ordered it. Then I smoked it, and I was very happy with my purchase. The wrapper is oily and the cigar has a very good, earthy taste with an easy draw. The meatiness starts shortly after the light-up. I enjoyed it so much, I almost burnt my fingertips before discarding it. Then I ordered 3 more five packs. Very happy.

Gurkha classic havana toro
After buying several Gurkha sampler packs, I bought a box of the Classic Havana's which I enjoyed. I smoked four of the box of 24 and three of them developed a 2.5 inch canoe along the same surface. I had to cut them in half to even finish the smoke which by then looked like an exploding cigar. I sent them back for the as advertised "pro rata" refund.

Gurkha Havana
This is my go-to smoke. It's full bodied but smooth - very consistent right to the nub. I would recommend this cigar to any enthusiast looking fir the Cadillac of cigars. This is it!

This is one of the best cigars I have ever smoked. Flavorful but not harsh. A very tasty mellow smoke.

This is gurkha
Hands down the most poorly constructed cigar I've ever smoked. When they say Gurkhas have fireproof wrappers, the Havana blend should be exhibit #1. Not good tobacco or construction. Avoid at all costs.

Great taste, poor construction and band.
I received these over a year ago in Cigar Dave's Officers Club sampler and instantly fell in love. I have never bought a box as they were priced a little out of my range, however they were on sale here and went for it. As dated I love the rich taste. The biggest problem was the band they use a really thick and huge (over an inch wide) cardboard band. They also use a lot of glue on it and you cannot hardly get off the stuck without tearing the cigar wrapper. I had this problem a year ago on the sampler but thought they would have corrected it by now, but they have haven't. After I tore the first 4-5 wrappers I almost sent them back but did not what yo deal with the hassle. I have had about 15 so far and all but a couple I have had problems with. I have tried taking the band off first, letting it burn down to the band, which is even worse. I have even broke into my wife's sewing kit and found a tiny pair of sizzors that kinda work to cut the band off. If it weren't for the band causing the wrapper to come undone these smokes would have a five star rating.

A fine stick
This was the Gurkha given out at last year's cigarfest. I enjoyed the full bodied taste and rich flavors through out. I decided to buy a box and was not disappointed. Great Gurkha product when I am in the mood for something less bold than an akuza or black dragon

Outstanding!
This may be my new every day favorite. An even smooth burn throughout a box pressed panatela? Impossible you say? I think not. Kudos to Kaizad!

Tasty smoke.....BUT.....
This was quite a good tasting smoke but of the three I have smoked, 2 unravelled on me. Too pricey a cigar to be this poorly constructed.

Exspected better
I had the Gurkha Classic Havana in the past and the cigars were well constructed. This last batch were not as smooth nor well constructed. Even after a few weeks in the humidor the cigars unraveled as I smoked them.

Gurka XO
A very good smoke, even burn with a lot of flavor. Its listed as a medium smoke, I am going with medium to full body. Still a good choice.

Overly dry and wrapper cracked
After a long search for these, I was glad to find them. I handed out a few to friends and all of them have said the same thing to me. Wrapper cracked upon clipping or punching the end.

Where's the beef?
A very loose packed cigar. If it was rolled like any other cigar, the ring would drop from a 52 to a 40 or less. There just isnt much tobacco to this cigar. A big disappointment from Gurkha
3 out of 5
Not the greatest, but good.
Nice cigar, but a relatively loose pack. Very flavorful, smoked down pretty quickly (45 minutes).

Pleasantly pleased...!
I ordered a few multi-packs of high quality cigars and was pleasantly surprised at the quick delivery and the range of 90+ caliber cigars in my bundle. I will definitely order from them again.

A dissappintment
i usually love Gurkhas but these just didnt have much flavor and also had a very light draw. In other words I felt like I was breathing hot air. Hot. Expensive. Air.
Customer Testimonials
Simply amazing!
Best cigar I ever had; six stars out of five.
An amazing cigar! From the first puff, to the final drag, the flavor is complex. It starts off with a spicy note that tapers to a consistent, yet mellowed taste. A true joy of a cigar! Puff and enjoy!
Truly an old school smoke. For years I have been chasing a flavor of a block of antique Cohibas I came across in Guatemala. In this cigar I have found nirvana. This is the best smoke of my life. I rushed to buy a box. Only 3000 were made and if I could, I would buy a lifetime supply.
A very smooth tasting cigar with a nutty taste. Beautiful in construction and presentation, Gurkha never disappoints with the labels. An enjoyable experience.
