Gurkha The Royal Reserve

The cigar rated by MAXIM and American Airlines magazine as "finest in the world."

Gurkha is known for super-expensive, high-quality, well-aged premium cigars made with choice tobaccos. The Royal Reserve might just take the cake, as the line is among the most pricey in the world. The flat-out beautiful box packaging of this cigar makes it almost a shame to break open to sell in 3-packs. But this high-ticket box of 22 - produced as a one-time, limited edition set - each comes with its own authenticity card. Each cigar has been "super-infused" with Louis XIII cognac, and it’s a simply exquisite cigar that will tease your palate. Medium to full bodied with a unique, ornate wax coating, sealed under glass. A collector’s item.

I'll be honest, I thought these went the way of the dinosaur. But we recently received a small allotment from the manufacturer. This elusive handmade will only be around while our limited supplies last. Once they're gone, that's adios!

Purple Wax Gurkha Royal Reserve
I purchased a 3pack, smoked one immediately upon receipt (mistake), and let the other 2 rest for around 3 months. Smoked one of those today. My take is, this is a very good cigar flavor wise, although I'm definitely not into infused cigars. The "infusion" (or however they get the cognac in here) works in this case because you can still taste decent tobacco in the mix. If I had my druthers (excuse the ancient language - I'm old), I would prefer this blend without the cognac. This is very sweet, burns great (self correcting any problems), has a white ash that hangs on, and the sweetness is there throughout. Would I choose the Opus X for around the same price? Probably, because I like the fresh roasted tobacco taste more so than this cloying sweetness. As far as flavors go, I pick up only cognac, which is a good thing if that's what you're looking for - but you can buy a great non-infused cigar and pair it with a glass of cognac, and it'll be the same experience. One last comment is that you can't lay this one down for too long without it going out.

Great, in the final third
The start wasn't anything to write home about, but the final third really made it worth waiting for, to bad the flavors didn't go from start to finish, otherwise it'd be with every penny.

Not worth the money...
Bought a 3pk ehh...The flavors were great, full rich smoke and burned decent. But two had a stiff draw and the one that didn't actually unraveled while smoking... Probably won't buy again.

The best ever
This is by far the best cigar I have ever had. There is no cigar that comes close at this point. I am experimenting with the other Gurkhas. I have tried as of now, Yakuza, Titan, and Beast.

Worth its
I have bought a few of these for an annual golf trip. I never thought I would be buying a cigar for this much but they were perfect... Very dynamic flavor throughout the whole cigar. Absolutely worth it. I wish I had the pay grade to order a box so I could save them. I will be upset to see them go away.

Almost a home-run cigar...
Another good cigar from Gurkha! I bought 3 of them, one was a little hard to draw through but other than that TOP-NOTCH construction...The flavor profile is as sweet as the name with notes of the cognac, leather, earth, and just a hint of spice...Except for the uber high price, I would definitely keep these in my normal rotation of sticks. Great job Gurkha!

A Fine Tasting Cigar
I used to smoke these back a bit ago. Glad to find them again. These are a total package cigar. The infusion brings out a special flavor in the smoke you can enjoy the entire time you smoke this. If these things really are going away, do not hesitate and try it once in your life!

To pair with cognac
Good cigar to pair with cognac. Isn't the best that i had smoke.

I got these to celebrate my return from Afghanistan and they are wonderful. Every cigar that was donated to us was dry and didn't taste very good at all. Not the fault of the donators, the cigars were not properly cared for by the USO that gives them out. Anyway I really wanted a great cigar to make up for the poor ones we had so I settled on this. Easily one of the best cigars I have ever had over the years. They may be expensive but well worth the money in my book.

Customer Testimonials
I picked up a 3 pack of these. This cigar was hands down one of the best I have ever had. I am not very skilled at explaining the different flavors and aromas but I was almost certain that there was a hint of blueberry. Phenominal cigar. I am looking forward to purchasing a whole box next time they are available. A must try.
I have smoked almost every kind of cigar on the planet and I have to say that The Royal Reserve puts most of them to shame. I really thought I had found my number one when I smoked the Stradivarius last year....NOPE!.... 10\10 on the Royal Reserve, they are even better than the Grand Reserve.
I had someone give me one of these. (Gurkha The Royal Reserve) I broke my new apartment in with it. If you get the chance to smoke one, TAKE IT. The best cigar i've smoked to date. Hopefully i can get another before too long. I cant say enough good things about The Royal Reserve line.
I bought box #104 of the Gurkha Royal Salute cigars. They are the best I have ever had. I don't regret the price at all!
