Gurkha Hudson Bay Red Skies

Hudson Bay's next big thing.

Stretching its boundaries but not what’s in your wallet, Gurkha does it again with the second addition to the Hudson Bay line, Gurkha Hudson Bay Red Skies—a deliciously, money-saving premium handmade. The East India Trading Co. division of the well-known Gurkha brand creates another well-constructed, satisfying blend. Keep on reading if you enjoy an outstanding, handmade cigar without the high-end price.

Medium to full-bodied, Red Skies is both pleasing to the eye and palate. With an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper giving off a visually stunning red hue, and Nicaraguan long-fillers, Kaizad Hansotia hand selects aged tobaccos of the finest quality and packs them into one savory treat. The tobaccos and flavor profile of Gurkha’s Hudson Bay Red Skies carry sweet, spicy notes that are undeniably complex and linger enjoyably on your palate. This is one cigar to have in your humidor.

GREAT CIGAR
This is great working cigar. 2-3 times a day while working on the farm, it is a nice pleasure. Been smoking them for years. And will continue to smoke them as a working cigar.

The price is right to sail on the Hudson Bay
The price was right, good construction. The flavor was good, but not a stand-out, it is a good every day cigar, I would definitely buy them again. P.Fitz Braintree Ma.

Just Okay
These cigars were a really good deal and so I bought them to try out and have some extras in my humidor. They're ok, not great, but for the price, it was a good purchase. I know most cigar snobs wouldn't even consider amoking anything in the Gurkha lineup, but if you're not a snob, go for it!

Great everyday cigar
I'm all about Ecuador Sumatra wrappers and this one doesn't disappoint. Took a chance on a box of 20 on sale and happy about it, the sweet spice combo isn't over the top at all but enuf to keep your interest. Great draw, even burn, lots of smoke. And not ridiculously priced!

Smooth and flavorful
Sumatra wrapper gives it a smooth yet flavorful effect. Clean burn ; not hot. Great value and being of the Gurkha brand it's a win-win.

Nice smoke
Very nice cigar, only complaint would be that it could be wrapped tighter. It burned nice, but a bit fast.

My favorite Gurkha
What I like most in this crowded brand is the lack of wrapper issues. Easy smoking, minimum worries about keeping well-lit. Does need a couple of weeks of home humi for best behavior. On sale several times a year.

What a beautiful smoke! Very enjoyable. Nice even burn and a very smooth draw.

Mediocre everyday cigar.
This is a decent cigar especially since it's inexpensive. It lacks flavor and the draw is very very loose. I've had a few of these and they have all had a few soft spots and they burn a little uneven. For what it's worth they don't hold ash well at all and fell off every half inch.

A wonderful smoke
Red skies has become one of my favorite cigars. It leaves a wonderful taste on the pallet with a nice room note that gets a lot of compliments. I look forward to purchasing another box very soon.

What's with the band?
This cigar is enjoyable...BUT...for me leaving the band on down to the nub is part of the "experience"... Dump the ridiculous band.

Good Flavor With A Loose Wrap
These are a good cigar with respect to flavor. They would be even better if they we're wrapped a little tighter. They tend to burn fast and get runners
3 out of 5
A little disappointed
I expected a little more, it wasn't smooth, and lingered quite awhile. Better than a convenience store, but not by much.

Pretty disappointed.
The flavor was not there. The quality of the cigar itself was lacking. It was soft and rolled loosely. I smoke these things in less than 30 minutes. About half way through, the wrapper wants to come off. I've smoked 5 so far and every one has been fair quality at best.

We will order these again. Great value and taste.

Red Skies
This cigar (robusto) starts off with a good bit of spice and then eases into a good flavored smoke. The construction is good and draw is nice. I'm not sure that i like the oversized band but that is the only thing that i'm not sure i like about this stick. Bottom line is I will buy this one again.

Very smooth and great tasting burns evenly throughout

Red skies
These cigars have a harsh beginning but become nice and mellow with good flavors about an inch in. They hold a good long ash and produce good thick smoke. A good cigar for the price, I would buy again.

Nice Gurkha addition
The Hudson Bay Red Skies are a mellow easy smoke, one that makes me smile when I light it up. Only problem is it doesn't last long enough. Really, it burns too fast. It doesn't feel loosely rolled but it does burn quickly.
5 out of 5
Great smokes. Just right for my pallet. Prety consistant with a few exeptions as dry and comming apart.
Like these alot and will continue to by these.
3 out of 5
They are ok, ordered by accident, looked just like the regular ones.
They are good basic smoke, does stay lit though. Not as good as the regular Hudson Bay. I ordered by mistake because did not notice the Red Skies in the name and label is basically the same. Should use different label.
5 out of 5
Try these. Red skies at night
Just as described. The flavors are just spot on. Great construction, no soft spots. Easy draw, but well packed. Just a great smoke. I recommend a few days in the humidor before smoking. Bought them on sale, so it was deal. I definately recommend them to a friend or anyone.
