Gurkha Symphony

Description

Smooth as silk.

By all accounts, this 91-rated blend is a masterful one. It’s often compared to AVO cigars - indeed many would say it outpaces and outshines its rival, offering copious amounts of mellow, creamy smoothness. And despite its subtle body, Gurkha Symphony delivers a genuine richness of flavor and complexity, even a smidge of spiciness on the palate.

Don’t know why Gurka always seems to get a bad reviews, but I’ve only had a couple I didn’t like. This Symphony is as really nice and light. Flavor is subjective but to me the main flavors I got were a very creamy cedar as well as a roasted peanut flavor throughout the entire cigar. It smoked beautifully and I really enjoyed the cigar and am glad I have 4 left.

Similar to the Gurkha Status but a bit stronger and mor bitter at the end of your smoke. Otherwise still very good cigar just a bit lower end of the Gurkha spectrum.

I choose Gurkha cigars for their easy draw and consistent burn. The Signature cigars are the right size and mild taste for me.

Decent draw and well packed but it seems to leave me "standing at the altar" as a final analysis...forget the "chocolate, earthy, hints of wild berries" etc. metaphors that marketeurs stamp on their products to try to entice smokers into sticking a bunch of huddled leaves between lips, this cigar is just a step or two above an Arganese and a hop, skip and jump below a Comacho when it comes to opinionating decent from descent.

Very smooth and great pull. Physically this is the heaviest Gurkha I have had and burns vey nicely. The overall quality is top notch. As far as Gurkha’s go this may have moved to the top of my list for a Connecticut blend. Pairs nicely with beer or bourbon.

Gurkha Symphony

Steve R
Those of you that know me are well aware of my love for Gurkha cigars. I can easily look you straight in the eyes and say that I’ve yet to find a disappointing Gurkha. Granted, I haven’t smoked them all (yet), but I’ve definitely had my fair share. Kaizad Hansotia, the man behind Gurkha, came out with some new lines with K. Hansotia secondary bands. Of course, I had to try them all. The gentlest of these is the Symphony, and since I prefer medium to full, I tried this one last.

Ok, let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. This cigar is gorgeous. It has a pale, silky Connecticut shade wrapper that’s been flawlessly applied. The initial spark produces a pleasant aroma. A little woody, and very mellow. Right off the bat, the smoke fills my mouth with a thick, velvety texture that seems to coat my palate. The flavors are creamy and gentle. I notice a cedary-ness that’s complemented nicely with some spice. Not too much though, not as much as your ordinary Kaizad handmade. Considering his Centurian is one of my favorite cigars, I am not used to this. It uses a powerful, all-Dominican blend of filler leaves, which makes me expect a rich, rich flavor. It’s rich, yes, but not Perdomo or Indian Tabac rich. Truth be told, it smokes like an Avo or Davidoff, and I actually forgot what I was smoking halfway through. It’s pretty mellow, with a distinct creaminess that offers hints of wood and nuts. I think I found a new smooth recommendation for my ‘not so price sensitive’ customers. Just one recommendation though. Store them at about 65% percent. The thick filler leaves absorb a lot of moisture that can lead to a funny burn. Other than that, this pretty girl gets the homecoming crown!
