Gurkha Widow Maker

Few boutique brands carry the all-around gravitas as Gurkha. Actually, few brands even come close. Known for exceedingly flavorful, high quality handmades crafted from the world's rarest, oldest tobaccos, the Gurkha name represents prestige and luxury. Centurian, Beauty, Beast, Titan, Crest, Triad....Gurkha's list of fine achievements is long and distinguished. Add Widow Maker to the list, because this rare specimen is ready for the masses.

The medium to full-bodied Widow Maker is all substance. Available in two formats - Ecuador Connecticut and Connecticut Broadleaf - this ultra-premium is made entirely of extensively aged tobaccos. Rare, vintage tobaccos sorted countless times to obtain only the finest, highest quality leaves. Both varieties are bold and complex, offering soothing layers of robust, satisfying flavors delivered in a methodical, expertly balanced fashion only true vintage tobaccos can provide. Expectations will no doubt be high due to the price point....but a cigar of this caliber has the ability to meet, and also exceed, these expectations.

Bought a 5-pack. One out of the five was rolled with big vein of leaf tobacco that made it impossible to burn evenly and to smoke.

XO Maduro Gordo is choice
Excellent cigar if you like a stronger smoke. Deep, rich flavor and very nice aftertaste. Smokes very smooth start to finish. Slow even burn and good ash. This is an evening relaxation cigar for me that lasts about 3 hours.

Not the Widow Maker I Remember
Not the Widow Maker of a few years ago. Very loose, spongey. The 6x60s I bought smoked in about 20 minutes. Flavor good, quality of workmanship poor.

Good Smoke
I have smoked several of these and like them best in the 50 ring size. They are a good cigar, but probably a little over hyped. They are worth trying and pretty consistent with Gurkha quality cigar.

Great Cigar
Been trying to get these for a while. Enjoyed them immensely! Great taste, smooth draw, nice even burn. Probably not for a beginner due to strength but excellent for experienced toker. Priced very reasonably making it a great value.

Very Good Stick
For my taste this is one of the better Gurkhas. I think one of the strongest in the Gurkha stable. Burns even , very smooth for a full body smoke, very good draw. I will hope CI will put them back in stock . I will order again if I can find them, so far no luck .

The best
One of the best cigars ever. Not a big Gurkha fan as I find their quality control a bit lacking in that most unravel or split after a few days in the humidor. These have always been perfect and the best smoke.

Not up to par
I love Gurkhas and the Widow Maker has been in my favor. However, in what seems to be a trend, the quality of the label has suffered in the most recent year. It was not well made and just "neither good nor a pleasure to smoke."

Raising my game
The Gurkha Widow Maker is just what you expect from Gurkha. Great construction, even burn, and great flavor. I usually get the Gurkhas as a treat for myself. Looks like I may have to reorganize my humidor to make a permanent spot for them.

Shockingly bold
When you see the nice tan outter lead you think it will be a mild smooth smoke. It’s still smooth, but anything but mild.

Fine Cigar
I buy cigars as an occasional gift for an old friend. He loved the Gurkha Widow Maker Churchill from the first puff. He said it was a rich, full bodied cigar with a wonderful taste and aroma. These were for his October birthday. I plan to give him another Gurkha bundle for Christmas!
Customer Testimonials
Awesome! Can't get enough!
Damn these things are big! Make sure you pack a lunch. Because it's gonna take a while to finish one of these.... a good cigar overall.
I love Gurkha cigars and although this Widow Maker isnt my favorite. It was still nice till the last pull.
As the others have said before me, $50 not likely, but none the less, a very nice smoke.... no problem with unraveling like I have had with other Gurkha's. I'm very happy with the taste and the burn. May be 15 bucks a stick, but I have to say it was very nice and a long smoke....
Delicious. Perfect. Dark. Rich. Highly recommend.
This tasty smokey treat is exactly what it is. It is a nice, clean smoke that paired well with my Gorgonzola and Pancetta Lamb Burger. It was also a nice pair with the brown ale I was drinking with this cigar. The chewy finish just won me over.
$50 stick, it is not, but it is a very well constructed, medium to full bodied smoke. I wouldn't be waving my wallet and shouting "Shut up and take my money!" to anyone selling them for more than a few bucks a stick. They strike me as a little bland, though they smoke wonderfully. I am going to toss a couple into cold storage and see if a year in cedar does them any good.
I like these widow maker.
I received a five pack included in a Gurkha sampler. Not worth the $50 quoted MSRP, but worth $15 to $20 in your local smoke smoke shop. Construction was good, along with an even burn. Very good cigar.
