Gurkha Yakuza

Description

A gorgeously intimidating blend.

Depending who you believe, the Yakuza are either a ruthless Japanese organized crime syndicate, or a misunderstood chivalrous organization…hint, I’d go with the former. The Yakuza are as famed for their intricate tattoos as their missing pinkies, and this new, bold blend from Gurkha, dubbed Yakuza, is as menacing as its namesake. A blend that’s as special as Gurkha Yakuza shouldn’t come in normal packaging, and leave it to Gurkha to knock this one out of the park.

Coming dressed in a oil-oozing, milk-chocolaty Ecuador Habano ligero wrapper, Yakuza’s aesthetics are spot-on. A quick peak under the covers reveals a Nicaraguan binder embracing a collection of ligero-laced, uber-refined Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers with the addition of a small amount of La Entradas long-filler. Well-balanced, this firecracker is in-your-face full-bodied and will lay the smack-down in the flavor department. Bold notes of toast, oak, nuts, espresso, and pepper intertwine for a robust and dizzying experience. Not for the faint of heart, the Gurkha Yakuza will send you into sensory overload. Make sure to clear your schedule for this gem, because it's an experience that demands zero interruption.

This was a nice cigar, but not to my taste. It had a bite to it that wasn’t the most pleasant. It was worth the discounted price I paid, but I wouldn’t pay MSRP for this cigar.

Much better than I expected! Very good construction, burn’s slow and even, legitimately a medium strength stick. Would purchase again.

Several years ago when I had my first Yakuza for $75.00 USD from a cigar lounge it was worth it! Finding the Yakuza here on CI was awesome!!!!! Gurkha takes the time with the Yakuza Cigar to make sure the leaves have the perfect quality for this cigar! When they are rolling the Yakuza you can see they treat the process like they are romancing their long love and beauty

I've had these before but the $$ scared me off. When I bought a 10 pack with a recent CI promo I grabbed them. It had been several years since I last had one but the familiar Yakuza flavor and aroma erupted as soon as I lit it. Full strength but not overpowering. Definitely one of Gurkha's best.

Right out of the box this is a very rich cigar. Dark chocolate and rich leather on the nose. You have to warm the cigar to appreciate it because you get so many flavors, including pepper, dark chocolate, which leather, which only intensifies as you smoke this. Make sure you start off with something in the medium to full strength before you like this baby out. It is potent from the get go!

What a wonderful smoke this is. I had wanted to try these for a long time. It was worth the wait. It's extremely flavorful, and is full bodied like they say it is. I will say, what I really liked about that, is that the cigar is full bodied without somehow being harsh on the system. Normally when I smoke something strong, the buzz comes with a dull headache, or a bit of a 'blah' feeling in the gut. This was utterly pleasant, but still packs a punch. The other thing that will shock you is, for a toro, how slow this thing burns. It took me every bit of an hour and 20 minutes to finish it. It produces a ton of smoke too. It's the best cigar I've ever smoked, in my humble opinion. That said, at least for me, there is no such thing as a $20 cigar unless you're at some kind of festival or convention, and someone is selling these individually. I got a tremendous deal on these to buy as many as I did. Wait for a sale to scoop some of these up. But when that sale hits, do NOT let the opportunity pass to get one of the best cigars you'll ever smoke.

My favorite Gurkha cigar by far. Slow burnng, flavorful, the only problem is that it is hard to get as it is not always in stock, but whenever it is, I always try to pick some up.

This cigar has it ALL! Great taste, even burn, lots of smoke, well constructed. Gets better with every draw. Well worth the money, I always have some in my humidors! Everybody’s taste buds are different so I don’t use the trendy and clicky words. Last thing I’ll say is very smooth and everyone I’ve shared with has asked me HOW to get some!!

This is without a doubt one of the finest cigars on the market. They may be a bit pricy,but they're worth it. Construction is first rate,the wrapper is gorgeous, the burn and draw superb. I have it in my top five, behind the Opus X, and the Oliva Melanio. Not for the faint of heart, but worth the risk.
