Gurkha Widowmaker: Sorry, but no marriage made in Heaven for this noob.
All the cigar catalogs just endlessly hype the Gurkha cigars as being these absolute top-notch luxury brands, and the Widowmaker as being a cigar that retails for $50-$100 a piece. Well, no way I was going to pay that much, so when one was available for $3.90 as part of the Cigar.com sampler I had to snap it up. Well, I tried it yesterday, and I must say that, while certainly a pleasant medium-bodied smoke, there's nothing here that would come even close to justifying more than few dollars for it. Am I missing something here?
