    WELCOME BRIAN!! Glad to have you aboard the forum!

    Man, Kuzi is going to be all over this one!! I really like the double maduro and i LOVE the Legend. The double maduro is not like any other maduro i've tried. It's sharp and focused with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet earth, incredible burn and construction. The legend is a myriad of flavors i havent been able to pick them all out yet. But if you like Gurkha, you'll love Rocky Patel.....

    (Had to stir the pot...love ya Kuz!!!)
  • The one I have the most of is the master select but there are so many good ones. I like how they are made with such care. Check out the Gurkha website and watch the video. Every cigar is tested for draw and they pay so much attention to the small details. I could do without the elaborate packaging to lower the price though...

    Of the Gurkhas I've had, the Centurian is my favorite.
  • Mine is definately the Shaggy.

    The Royal Salute was my favorite so far. If you're looking to try one, pick one up now - they've discontinued them. After that it would be the Legend perfecto.

    Mine is the HMR.... J/K, my favorite was the Black Rothchild, although they are a hard one to find.

    So far it's the regent followed by the legend, but I have some others in the humi waiting for me to try them. I'll let you know if I change my mind.

    Let's see, the beauty is good, as is the LXIII grand reserve, (have but not tried platinums and royals), and well the titan, the beast, all the one's I have had I liked. I have several on order which should be here soon.

    Rob are you sure? I know they are limited but I wasn't aware they were getting rid of the line..

    The RP Vintage 92 and the Decade are my personal favorites.

    Back to the topic at hand, I personally like the Legend. I haven't had many of the Gurkhas but so far I like that one the best. I am looking forward to trying some of their maduros as well.

    Another vote for the Centurian, here.
  • phobicsquirrelphobicsquirrel Posts: 7,349
    A lot of love for the centurion, can't wait till mine get to me.
  • madurofanmadurofan Posts: 6,152
    My favorite Gurkha is the Triple Ligero, also known as the G3.

    But if we're going to toss around a lil convo about RP's its gotta be the Nording.
  • Jetmech_63Jetmech_63 Posts: 3,454 ✭✭✭
    Just won some Centurians last night, looking forward to trying them, ordered more doble maduros as well...yum!

    That is very true Laker. I think I need to change my vote.
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    I forgot to mention the Fuerte. I've only had one, but it gave the Centurian a run for its money.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    *adds Gurkha Fuerte to the "to try" list.
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    Good thinkin'.
  • dep691dep691 Posts: 311

    I'm not big into gurkha's. But the one that I thought was pretty good was the Legend in the perfecto size. Actually was a pretty good smoke, but the only one out of the line that I thought that of.

    the legend is good. have you tried the centurian? i think its better. IMHO
  • Jetmech_63Jetmech_63 Posts: 3,454 ✭✭✭

    I have tried the centruian, still have a couple, liked the legend better.

    I haven't had enough Ghurkas to make an educated recommendation. I did like the Royal Brigade, the double maduro, and the Beast - but they seem very sensitive - construction wise. The taste seems to vary between sticks also. Is this just me?
  • LukoLuko Posts: 2,004
    I haven't had too many Ghurkas, but for me it would be Legend (had a churchill and it was one of the best smokes I ever had) followed closely by the Centurian. Beast and Titan were so-so, basically just decent monstrosities. I got a fiver of Centurians when I first started buying cigars last summer and I burned through those fast...wish I would have rested a few. I also tore through a bunch of 601s before I really knew which end was up.
