A real knockout.
Here's one I never saw coming. Sort of like the first time I saw Rocky 5 - consumed with confusion and thoughts of "what the hell is going on here." But luckily in this instance, it makes this handmade even more special. Instead of swanky packaging and high MSRPs, this one cuts out all the fat for a lean, highly anticipated release. Inspired by historic boxing figures from the 1900's, Prize Fighter takes a refreshing all substance approach. In fact, you've probably heard stories of this era - when the men were men (and real men burnt cigars). Prize Fighter wins on so many levels....a picture perfect Connecticut-shade Ecuadorian wrapper, double binder combination of Ecuadorian and Indonesian leaves, and a 3 year aged blend of Dominican fillers. Never overpowering, this mellow to medium-bodied cigar is easy to enjoy one after another. Then tack on the highly enjoyable price....nuff said.
I did not expect to like this cigar so much. I occasionally buy Gurkhas and when I saw the Prize I decided to give it a try. I smoked my first Gordo at the beach on a light windy day and the cigar held the ash for more than two and half inches. Great creamy taste and a lot of smoke. I would definitely buy it again for an everyday smoke.
No idea how others are cutting this stick...I can say that I have had ZERO issues! Not a single problem and the taste is spot on! I'm a huge Gurkha fan and many of the high ends taste like black pepper...not this one! Very smooth, heavy cream taste and does not turn to crap by the time you reach the nub. I will purchase again and often!
Very nice cigar. I was surprised at how good it was for the cost. A tasty, mild flavored cigar.
Good for the prize but was dried when arrived
My New Favorite Cigar! These are Great Cigars and i would Recommend them to anyone!
This is my favorite economical stick. Creamy throughout, the 2nd third takes on a slightly peppery flavor without being overwhelming. Yes, you will find a few flecks of tobacco sticking to your lip, no big deal.... As a fan of Gurkha, these are a constant in my humidor.
Nice cigar that is fun to smoke.
Not an ideal smoke for any occasion. Im a true fan Gurkah, but this is one they should go back to the drawing board with or just let it be done with. The construction of this cigar is very weak, not to mention you spend most of your time spitting out loose leafe filler as apposed to enjoying the smoke. I know they say you get what you pay for, honestly, I would be upset if I got this for free.
lousy cigar, came apart as you tried to cut it. short on flavor, bad burn.
Good mild to medium cigar. Hints of creamy smoke with premium tobacco. Great even burn and no issues with draw. Construction had no issues and held up well. For the price and a good cigar this is a must have.
I bought a BDL of 20 and liked them so much I ordered 40 more. A very good, light, everyday cigar. Not the same construction of better Gurkhas but you get a lot of cigar for your money.
Just smoked my first one, and it does indeed have a light creamy taste. It burned evenly and the draw was nice and easy. I think the rest will be better after some time in the humidor. I paid twice the price advertised here at a local shop, so at this price, I would certainly recommend.
Decent smoke, but I was hugely disappointed with the prize fighters because of the construction of the smokes. I had 4 of them unravel as I cut them with my perfect cutter, so in this instance It was not the person cutting nor the cutter. I sent them back!
So I bought about 3 of the Gordo's sizes a few weeks back. The second one I smoked had...yes you're reading right...a nail in it. Not a tack...a nail. I took pictures of it and sent it to Gurkha. Posted it on their Facebook page and messaged them. They were very quick to respond and reimbursed me handsomely. 20 cigars including the Prize Fighter, Black Dragon Fury, Archive, Rogue, Ninja, Assassin...and even 2 Triads (extremely rare)....and a long sleeve shirt. They more than made up for it! They were fast and friendly as hell! They "nailed" it! But make no mistake...the Prize Fighter is a very good budget smoke. Don't worry there won't be any nails in yours!
