Gurkha Genghis Khan

A dark, delicious Gurkha for you to sink your teeth into.

To bear the name of Genghis Khan is a heavy burden, one that can only be endured by the finest of brands. Gurkha is a mighty fine brand with a more than impressive track record filled with prestigious, heavily sought-after blends, of which 90+ ratings have become commonplace. Known as the "Rolls Royce of Cigars", the Gurkha brand employs the world's finest tobaccos to create some of the industry's most exquisite premium cigars. Quality will never be sacrificed for price, and Gurkha cigars are worth every penny, and then some.

Genghis Khan is yet another example of Gurkha's expertise in uniqueness and craftsmanship. The Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper used to complete this cigar is simply gorgeous. Aside from being one of the hardest leaves on the planet to harvest, let alone one of the most expensive, it delivers an assortment of rich, slightly sweet flavors and promotes a super-slow burn. The hearty blend of aged Dominican and Honduran tobaccos combine with rare leaves from India and Africa to create an array of smooth, earthy notes backed by subtle hints of pepper. A medium-bodied delight to be savored, courtesy of one of the finest brands in the business.

'The Khan' is an alluring, 7.5" x 52 Churchill size that's masterfully blended and guarantees a satisfying and enjoyable experience. Such a masterpiece can only be presented as such. Packaged in a gloriously attractive dome chest that Genghis Khan himself would be proud to own. A big, bulky antique style, humidor quality dome that will sufficiently store 30 nicely proportioned churchills, complete with a lift-out tray that reveals a lower compartment for additional cigar or accessory storage. Once again, the folks behind Gurkha have outdone themselves with this piece.

Gurkha Genghis Khan received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "Imposingly large with a dark wrapper and even draw. The smoke is chewy and nutty carrying a subtle cocoa-powder sweetness."

Rare Tabaccos & Chilled Smoke
I teach non-western civilization, so naturally I had to try the Gurkha Genghis Kahn. Mine were a special CI promotion sold in cellophane packs without the expensive, hand carved, wooden treasure chest features with the regular packaging. First cigar out was ok, but needed seasoning in my humidor. Almost a month later, the smokes are great! If, you like a classic Bolivar, then these are comparable in feel, and taste. (Bolivar is more solidly packed with tobacco). Actually, the Kahns are taste of a subdued black cherry, and light earthy, charcoal flavor, with a touch of allspice. Smells great, smooth draw, ash is a bit loose for my taste, but a very mellow and enjoyable smoke. Goes well with Redbreast 12 Cask Strength. I keeo my hoard of Kahns in my locked humidor, and plan to savor them slowly over time for as long as possible. Not an everyday smoke, but one I value highly.

Middle of the Road
Started great but dropped off quickly. The cigar caved continually and the wrapper came loose about ⅔ of the way in. Burned unevenly so the wrapper, binder and filler didn't stay balanced. Picked up some toast, nuts and pepper. Gurkha makes a lot of different blends so I'll try some of the others.

A really nice cigar
Well I received this in a sampler and was very impressed with it that I am tempted to order more. Debating on whether to order alone or another Sampler. Paired it with some Talisker 10 and really enjoyed it.It burned extremely well and even and I loved the taste. Of the 35 different cigars I ordered from CI this one is my second favorite Gurka so far. I am kind of a newbie so Maybe my ratings may be a little off. I have smoked Aston, Fuente, Cohiba, and many of the other popular brands mostly bought at local cigar shops and the Gurkha sampler and 125 were the first I purchased from CI and so far I am quite pleased with them

Good smoke!
I actually received this cigar from a Gurhka sample pack. Excellent taste and quality smoke. Much smoother draw that I thought it would be.

Finally, a good Gurkha.
I am not a Gurkha fan, but I received one of these Genghis Khan's in a sampler. I was not expecting much, as I have had many "bad" Gurkha's in samplers. I was pleasantly surprised! It was real good. The smoke was thick and poured off the foot- just how I like it. The burn was not perfect, but only needed a small touch up half way through. The draw was perfect. The flavors were great. Now I have to get more of these Genghis Khan's before they are gone. I highly recommend it.

One of the best
The Gurkha Genghis Khan is an absolutely delicious stick. End to end, this creamy smoke does anything but disappoint. It should be at the top of every great cigar list, as its an incredibly enjoyable smoke. One of the best cigars I have ever had the pleasure experience, I would recommend to every smoker that I know.

The name says it all.
This cigar has a nice even slow burn. It is a wonderfully smooth smoke that pairs excellently with Whiskey or Scotch. There is a reason why this is named after a man that brought conquest to the majority of the Asian continent. It is smooth, methodical and will find itself at the top of your list before you realize what has happened.

1st Khan. Couldn't be happier!
This was my first experience with the Gurkha cigar brand. Wow I am not disappointed. I bought the last 4 my cigar shoppe had to get the chest for my girlfriend. I can't wait to sit by the fire tomorrow night and have another. And I am not even 1/3 of the way through this one. I will be ordering a chat of my own very soon.

I received three in a sampler pack of 15. One of them ran. But they all smoke good other than that one and that one still had a very good quality to it. All three did cut well and there was no splitting of the rapper overall I would consider it a high quality cigar. I have had problems with high quality cigars. If you have the money to spend on a quality cigar in this price range go ahead

Not Worth the Money
One of the worse Gurka's I have ever smoked. After relighting it 6-7 times the=rough the first half on the cigar, I gave up and through it away. Hard draw and bitter taste. Definitely not worth the money.

Definitely Recommend to Anybody
Wow! This cigar is an absolutely delicious smoke down to the nub. A smooth and creamy stick with just the right kick, not too strong not too weak. One of the best cigars I've ever smoked.

Don't go near it.
Absolutely the worst cigar I have ever tasted. It's like Tabaco mixed with plastic and candle wax made into a cigar. I gave it ten minutes and it only got worse.

Cigar Love!!!!!!
I love this cigar #1 on my list of cigars. Easy smoke not to strong or weak I can spend 2 hours and 45 min. smoking one of these and I'm still sad when I finish it. One of my friends said I left one of these at his house he found it in a baggy and it was a little dry. He still spent 3 hours smoking it and this is a guy that cant sit still for 20 min. lol

Customer Testimonials
I ordered the Gurkha samplers and I got 2 of these OUTSTANDING AND WONDERFUL smokes. This is a great med, slight full flav smoke. The taste is GREAT; tons of smoke and very well made. If you can afford these BAD BOYS they are GREAT....
Well, I do say, it's another great cigar from the Gurkha collection. It fits the description totally! Beautiful construction and flavor. The name fits. The chest is a keepsake. Truly great cigar that you must try. It's a winner.
Wow! Nice cigar box and very nice smoke. Enjoyed one in a snowstorm sitting in my wood shop in front of a fire. it was great. Got a chest for my son-in-law who is coming back from Afghanistan. Can't wait! Thanks, CI.
Is a toss up whether I like the Grukha Genghis Khan or 125th XO Maduro better. Overall, two of my favorite cigars. The Genghis burns even, has a good amount of smoke and is a medium to full flavor. I was finally able to order a full box given they are often out of stock. While they may not be for everyone, I really enjoy them.
The Genghis Khan was by far the greatest cigar I have ever smoked. It had a very satisfying medium body and an overall great flavor. This single cigar kept going for over an hour and a half while sitting around a fire with my friends. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to just sit down and savor their smoke.
I bought one of these (Genghis Khan) big jobs during a recent visit to the new CI retail store. Frankly, I was expecting more! I had to keep at the thing to make it burn evenly, the ash was not very strong and quite flakey. The appearance is slightly 'rough' looking, but that often appeals to me...looked like a cigar! On the plus side, the burn is slow, the smoke cool and very pleasant. Will I pay $10 for another one? Not likely.
This cigar (Genghis Khan) is one of the best I've smoked delicious from tip to nub' I hope CI adds this to the fights and to the sampler's
I just smoked the Genghis Khan that I received in my Cigar-of-the-month club. What a cigar! I haven't tried the Centurian yet, but this one is my second favorite Ghurka (after the Master's Select). Slightly spicy and just a hint of sweetness. Smooth and creamy down to the nub. Great pick this month CI dudes!
Without a doubt, one of, if not the finest gars I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy (Gurkha Ghengis Khan). They are all beauties: Full flavor, nice construction, great in every way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
