Gurkha Red Witch

One sexy....witch.

Red Witch is the newest everyday premium cigar from Gurkha, and boy does it look good. Named after the famous East India Trading Company ship, this lovely handmade is gorgeous from head to toe. Carefully crafted in Nicaragua, this box-pressed creature packs 3-year aged Nicaraguan long-fillers, from the super-fertile region of Jalapa, into a Dominican binder. Then, tying the ensemble together is a seamless Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper.

From first light, sweet nuances take the reigns as notes of spice, earth, and coffee also enter the fray. Medium to full in body and exceptionally well-balanced, this handmade takes you on one memorable voyage. Plus, they're reasonably priced too.

A great cigars with a smooth taste
However, Once you receive them let them seat in your humidor for a couple of days.

Great stick for the price
One of my go to cigars. Great flavor and a great stick for the price. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars is it tends to make a bit. The draw is also really good.

Great draw. Great taste.
Took a chance at a cigar store and bought one. From the moment I lit it it was a great cigar. Great draw no wait fantastic draw. Great flavors. Burns kind of fast or it would have been a 5. Gurkha makes a great cigar no matter what. Never had a bad one.

The Red Witch is an enchantress!
Found these in a shop in Atlanta. One stick and I was hooked. Well constructed, easy draw and loads of spice. This is my go to cigar. Great with a cup of dark roast. Can't wait for CI to get more in stock. I'll be buying another humidor so I can fill it with the Red Witch.

One of my favorite cigars!
Every time I had a Red Witch, it was always good. So this time I decided to get my own stash.

Good Smoke
This is a good cigar, plenty of flavour and produces good smoke. Burns fairly evenly and produces a nice white ash. all in all a nice cigar. I've had the Ghost and the Shaggy and I'd rate these just under the taste of them.

Not much flavor. Just ok when you want a long smoke.

Enjoyable cigar - use a punch cutter
I really enjoyed this cigar. Good flavors, easy draw, lots of smoke, and nice even burn. I've smoked three and haven't had to relight once. I think the key to these sticks is to use a punch cut. I used a punch on two of them and it was great. Used a v cut on one and it started falling apart on me towards the end.

good but strong
i saw them in a local smoke shop for $7 and they where marked 1/2 off so i bought the 15 of them that was left their i toasted one up was it hit me right away with flavor this is a medium-bodied smoke with flavors of earthy spice, undertones of sweetness, and a smooth finish that provides an enchanting smoking experience.was really good and yes i would buy a box of them but the price is a bit rich for my blood and and my budget but other wise a great cigar

Truly Uniwue Smoke
Gurkha is good, but what you really need to do for a unique stick is to find one of their off the commom path labels. This stick is amazing. Notes of chocolate, and all that studf cigar aficionados usually say. You can actually notice those notes in this cigar. Plus the history, name, cool label. It just makes you feel rich.

Don't be scared of the Red Witch
Just a really nice smoke. Very consistent taste every time I've lit one up. It's medium to full but very smooth.
Customer Testimonials
I am very happy that I found the Red Witch. This cigar very much reminds me of the taste of the Punch Chateau L which I love, but the Punch is a very inconsistently-made cigar and you just never know what you will get. Some of the Chateau Ls are quality rolled and some are poorly rolled. Fortunately, Hansotia insists on quality and you can depend on the Red Witch. Great cigar!
The gorgeous reddish brown wrapper surrounds the well constructed cigar. One of my favorites - I always need a few of these around!

An enjoyable cigar. The draw was loose from the get go, but it never hindered my enjoyment. It had very a very good consistent taste and burn throughout. I would definitely buy it again!
KJ of Cudahy, WI
Well made as any Gurkha. Little too peppery for my taste. You will know you smoked this one. Would be great smoke for a night of drinking with the guys. Strong flavor and a true cigar smokers stick.
WP of Cincinnati, OH
I've enjoyed the Beast, Evil, and Ninja, and couldn't wait to try the Red Witch - which unfortunately was very disappointing to me. I don't know if I got a 'bad' one or not, but the thing made me sick; my head was spinning, and I felt like I was going to puke, and I only finished half of it. Uff-da! I bought a five pack, so will let the others humi for awhile and then give it another chance, but I'm wondering why this one affected me so adversely. Ideas, anyone??

.... Very good cigar..good burn,good construction, earthy, peppers, medium to full in flavor......its box time;-)
TB of winona, MN
This cigar was loosely packed, and I agree... it didn't have much flavor. No, it is not expensive, but I know better cigars for half the price. I don't think it will ever have a "plugged" problem, though.
RK of Torrance, CA
I picked one of these gems up on an impulse at my local shop. I gotta say this is a delightful smoke. Lots of earth and pepper with a hint of black coffee, but not too strong. Love it!
MG of Prairieville, LA
This was a gift from a friend some time back. It got buried in the humidor and I ran across it this past weekend, so I decided to save the VSG I was going to smoke and fired this baby up instead. Wow! Great flavors just poured out of this stick. Great burn from start to finish. I keep a running list of my favorites and I added this one for future buys.
MC of Luling, LA
Gosh, I do not know what the first guy is talking about. I was watching my son's baseball game this summer and lit up my first Red Witch and was blown away with the smooth draw, the outstanding flavor and of course the pressed shape (which I am partial to). LOVE this cigar!
JK of Wayzata, MN
Good cigar. Medium to full with good draw and burn. Earth and pepper taste with draw. Worth buying.
AB of Pleasanton, CA
This cigar took me on a trip I hadn't had since 1998 ( that's when I had the best Cohiba ever ) each moment was better than the last, creamy bellows of smoke, great draw, great construction, best roll, nice ash, lights great. This is my top choice, big fan of box pressed cigars. So hard waiting for the next one.
WM of West Covina, CA
Lit this little box-pressed beauty up this evening over a couple of good beers, good friends, and good conversation. Too bad I couldn't say the same for this stick. Like most of the Gurkha's I've smoked in the past, the Red Witch lit well, had a nice draw, beautiful billows of smoke, but didn't have much taste. The review above mentions notes of spice, earth and coffee, but unfortunately, as much as I wanted those to be present from the toast on, there wasn't a single spot in the stick that came close to those specific tones. The only way this stick could fit those profiles for me, was on the retrohales, (which I only took three or four of throughout the entire stick) which ended in an overabundance of spice, and a nice kick. I wasn't overly enthused with this particular stick, and like every past Gurkha experience, it falls short of the critical aclaim attached to it. Definitely not a cigar I'd smoke anytime soon, let alone keep in steady rotation in my humidor.
