Gurkha Private Reserve

There’s a door marked “Private.”

So go ahead....open it.

It’s impossible to know precisely what’s behind this portal of secrets, but I’ll give you a few clues. First, I can tell you that this premium handmade treasure hails from Gurkha, purveyor of some of the finest cigars on Earth. Next, I can tell you the blend is exclusive, and you’re not likely to encounter it ever again. Think of it like Gurkha Royal Reserve, a blend so rare and popular that I simply can’t keep it on the shelves.

The wrapper is maduro – dark, oily, exotic, enticing. And while only Kaizad Hansotia himself knows the secret filler blend, I can tell you that each cigar has been double infused with cognac, imparting a subtle and refined flavor profile. Presentation is everything, and each individual handmade has been sealed in tubos topped with melted gold wax. This is a collector’s item, for sure.

Great Cigars
I ordered these for my husband, he loves high end cigars. The cigars arrived with some broken, causing glass to shatter thru out the box and the other cigars sealed in wax. My husband called in, after speaking to a manager, they fixed the issue by sending out a new set. My husband loves these cigars and shares them with friends and family. Everyone has liked them so far. We would order these again.

The torpedoes are excellent!
When you pop the cap on the glass tube essence of congac wafts out to greet you. I'm no fan of cognac, but this cigar may have changed my mind! On the dry draw is a definite flavor of congac, wood, and leather. Great draw. Subtle hints of Remy, white pepper, cream, baking spices, leather, nuts, and a mild woodiness. Once you light this back up you will be hard pressed to smoke it slow. It really is that good. At nearly nine dollars a stick these are with every penny. This is coming from a regular Cuban cigar smoker. Great for a Friday night, special occasion, or any other event of significance. Not a every day cigar. These cigars are not cheap. But they are worth it!

Gurkha Private Reserve Churchill - Maduro
These cigars are fine. However, the glass tubes in which they are packed did not keep them from drying out somewhat. Even upon arrival the wrappers on several of them loosened as I smoked them. The flavor is very good, but the dryness does affect the quality of the smoke. Unfortunately, when my shipment arrived two of the glass tubes were broken despite being in bubble wrap and in a box with shipping "popcorn" in the inner box and an outer box with airbags for padding. There was no damage to the other or inner boxes to indicate a crushing issue. The cigars in these tubes were cut by the glass in the middle. Thus, my Churchill cigars were stubby. I contacted customer service to alert them of the problem. The reply I received indicated that the information would be passed on, but I was disappointed that they did not offer to replace them. Whereas there was no crush damage to the boxes, I suspect the damage occurred in the warehouse before they were boxed. The four stars is given because of the dryness of the cigars and the lack of customer service on replacing the ruined cigars.

Another overpriced Gurkha gimmick.
Just like most Gurkhas, this is a completely overrated gimmicky cigar. Gurkha is all about fancy packaging and hype marketing, and this cigar is no exception. Now, it's not a bad cigar. But you can get cigars that are as good or better than this for a lot less. Maybe Gurkha should focus more on making better cigars and less on fancy boxes. I mean, individual glass tubes sealed with wax? Give me a break. I would rather pay for a great cigar that's just in plain old cellophane and a normal cedar box than pay for any more Gurkha gimmicks. That, and having a hundred different lines that mostly all taste the same. You could take 10 different Gurkha lines, take the bands off, and do a taste test, and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between them. I'm pretty much done with this overrated brand.

Above Average but it's not Platinum
This Gurkha Private Reserve was above average, not as good as the Grand Reserve with Louis XIII infusion and certainly pales in comparison to my all time favorite GURKHA PLATINUM. Please get KH to bring it back.

Great for celebrations
An amazing smoke. The first smoke I had out of a glass tube. For the price on this site it is worth it.

Smoooth and well balanced
This cigar is a delight to smoke! Velvety smooth, with great flavor and balance, well made and creatively packaged. I couldn't smoke just one, so am looking forward to having more!

One of the best!
The only thing that I can really say is that in my opinion the Gurkha Private Reserve Churchill-Maduro is simply one of the best cigars that I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying with an amazing taste, and great draw.

Only had two so far...
Still waiting for the resting period in the humidor. But both of the ones I've were very smooth and full... Went well with Coffee and a Stout...

Inconsistent. Overpriced for what it is. Lacking flavor.

Few cigars are built and produce like the GPR. Every draw is undeniably special. One of the best "deals" I have found on a premium cigar in a long while. Wish it would warm up so I could smoke more of these. Love it!

Private Reserve
They were very good but not as good as the Brown Waxed tubs. Very important to pack them so the glass will not break. Excellent customer service!!!!

Waste of money if your looking for a good cognac cigar.
Loose rolled, burns up unevenly in about 20-25 minutes. No cognac flavor at all. Every cigar taste different than the last, but all lack cognac taste. The only cognac thing here is the aroma from the sponge inside the tube. Would never purchase these again.

Very good cigar. Well constructed and the flavor is subtle. Worth the money if you like cognac-flavored cigars.

Enthusiasts delight!
Very comparable to the Maker's Mark Cigars, but I think these have a slight edge over those. I have zero complaints about these cigars. 5 star! Good draw, flavor, and good smoke that won't leave you spitting everywhere. Smoke so tasty you want to grab it out of the air, put it back in your mouth, and chew on it some more.

Always CI has been fast and efficient with the orders placed for my business. The Gurka's were ordered for the up coming year. January will be the first that people are aware that they are available from the shop . Many have requested the cigar. Only happy to have them on hand for their pleasure.

Perfect cigar
This is the best cigar that I've had so far and I've had some good ones. It was smooth to the end, I didn't want to put it out. I would definitely buy more in the future and you can't beat the deal.

Great Smoke
After having these for a while I really enjoy the flavor of chewing on the stick prior to smoking. After lighting up, I have enjoyed this numerous times smoking it through until I couldn't hold it any more.

Customer Testimonials
Great cigar that you must try if you have not had a chance to try it yet. Rich in flavor as a good cigar should be. I say give it a try, you know you can't go wrong with a Gurkha.
AH of El Paso, TX
Would not rate it a great cigar. A good cigar, but for the price, it should be a VERY Great cigar. The plastic (silly) dipped end has to go. I'm not interested in wrestling with the stuff to open it.
