Have heard/read mixed reviews on Gurkas.  I have ordered the empire selection.  Are they decent?

    Decent, yes. Don't know that I'd say much more for them, but they are decent.

    I've had a coupe of the Empires. They are ok. The three Gurkhas I like/recommend are the Centurion, Regent, and Legend.

    Gurkha makes something for everyone. There's going to be some you love, some you hate, and some in between. I would suggest the Symphony, Ninja, Viper, Black Dragon, Centurian, Legend, Beauty, and Assassin.

    My 2 favorite Empire sticks are IV and VI they are fantastic. I tried to like the III but the 2 I had were very hard to draw. I agree with Wayne on his suggestions, but I would add Evil to the list and Park Ave Maduro.
    Welcome aboard.

    I've never been a big Gurkha fan (and I don't care to explore all their different blends - too many to keep up with), but I've always liked the Park Ave as an inexpensive go to mild connie. So how does the Maduro compare to the connie? I have a couple resting but haven't tried one yet.
  • I'm a noob too but I really did enjoy the Beauty I had a few weeks ago. Its a monster and with the guerilla warfare its a great price too.

    I'm pretty new to this, too, but Gurkha makes a ton of stuff, so it's kind of hard to get a general idea of just "Gurkhas." Two of my favorites are the Black Dragon robusto and the Centurian.
    Light 'em up.

    I think the Empire VI was an excellent smoke.

    The creaminess and bread-like flavors of the connie are gone and replaced by a coffee-like note with a hint of sweetness on the finish. The toastiness still remains.
