Burns evenly and good draw. Great taste also

Lack of flavor
This is a decent smoke to give to friends that aren’t to bothered about cigars but enjoy the occasional smoke. Really nice construction, nice even burn but little to no flavor. Ultimately quite a boring cigar.

Decent stick
I actually think these are solid 3/5 sticks, and for the price a borderline 4. They are a bit more "robust" then one may think, but a solid cigar for the price.

Really Enjoyed
I got these as a free promotion when i bought some Gurhka sampler packs. Have been pleasantly surprised. Mild but flavorful. Great when you dont have the time or feel like puffing on a churchill. Will definitely, (depending on price) make these a main stay in the humidor.

This was an ad on to a Gerka purchase for an extra 20 dollars. Truth be told I preferred these to the Gerkas nice medium to full smoke. I would buy these again.

Decent cigar
Every single one has long ashes and draws well. A little strong for me, sometimes a bit oily tasting, with a hit of harshness. But overall, esp for the price, a good smoke.

Can't Beat Them for the Price
These are just a good solid cigar. Even burn, solid construction, moderate smoke output and attractively packaged. There wasn't as much flavor in these as I was hoping for but still a good everyday cigar.

Fast burner.
Decent taste and actually rather mild. Burns rather quickly. A good cigar to light up when you don't have much time to smoke.

Mild,mellow and perfect burn. This is my favorite "quick" smoke! Not one of the whole box tunneled,was hard to keep lit, or burned at the end. Will gladly buy again.

Fast burning avg cigar
The cigar burns pretty fast. It's not harsh but it's not smooth either. It's a lbit "grassy" tasting. If you're looking for a premium taste in an inexpensive cigar, this isn't it. The price in this case indicates what you get. Average

A Christmas Gift... 20 Boxed
... for a helpful friend. Good cigar & price. We had one each on the Winter ride home from work in his big pick-up truck, windows half-mast. A good cigar! I prefer smooth firm Churchills and mellow Robustos. I decided one these as a gift after having one in a sampler bunch of many. Samplers cigars are hit & miss - most are good, a few are ok.

Hudson Bay is fair
A wee bit disappointed on the Hudson Bay cigar. I was hoping for another flavorful Gurkha encounter but was a bit let down. Not a bad cigar as far as taste but not complex or flavorful either. The first cigar for me, any new cigar is always the test run and never the only run. I give a cigar three shots when I first try them. This one got 4 chances. It’s a mild smoke with a bit of a “green” flavor after mid-way in. Good draw and construction. A slight woodsy taste in the beginning and later is a green hay smelling cigar. Won’t be buying again. Great to give away to beginners.

Hudson Bays present an enjoyable smoke all the way through!
Awesome smokes! I bought a box of 20 for a weeklong outing during hunting season. A mild smoke that satisfies the tastebuds. Gurkha never disappoints!

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!

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

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.

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.

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
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.
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.
