Gurka's

I have only had a few of these last year.  Didn't think too much of them however was more into infused acid cigars then.  Never though about buying them until now.  Is there a good reasonably priced to try?  Thinking of buying a box of some kind next order.

    The guerilla deal is the way to go (I like Titans). Some others will come up on sprint sale. The park avenue is a great mild stick (its on SS too, and I think I still have a coupon code for them...)  Many like the cellar reserve, and I have one waiting to smoke, but it is a little pricey.

    That is the extent of my gurkha knowledge.

    I was gifted a Gurkha Ghost this morning and the guy that gave me it loves it. The cellar reserve is good but expensive, other than that I don't know a whole lot about the others.

    From mainly what I see and from personal experience the Titans are decent if found cheap and the cellar reserves seem to be the most desirable of gurkhas. I think some people liked the double maduros (or was it ligero?), but I can't remember.

    SOme are good, some are ok. The idea is to get them cheap which most can be found. I learned that later in life. I paid $30 for a Beauty when you can find deals like 10 for $30. That's my best advice. Like any brand there are good and bad. Biggest part is going to be your taste. What I may really like of course you may not.

    Park ave is probably my all time favorite cigar. The deal you have is better then ss. I double checked my spreadsheet. Titan, vintage 2001, symphony, and status are all decent cigars. I enjoy a Gurkha every once in a while. I will say they do have burn issues often and you should never ever pay retail for them. They are on sale all the time.

    Vintage 2001 limitada is my fave. But I also really like Beast,Titan,Blue Steel,Spec Ops, The whole Empire line. And the Centurian( this ages very well IMO) I find they all seem to burn better with a day of dry boxing. I don't know why but they seem to all have burn issues if you don't.

    +1. How could I forget. You gotta dry box these cause just like Rhamlin said, they all have burn issues for some reason.
