    Afraid of the Bombs! And not tech savvy. I take the knowledge I learn here, and use it. Perhaps now that the ice is broken, I will participate on occasion. I have been lurking since March 2012. Learned a lot.

    Personally, I've had a run of bad cigar luck since joining and didn't want to make an entrance with ****. I'm anxiously awaiting a delivery of MOW Ruinations today, hoping that will give a change of pace.

    So, what is "bad cigar luck"?

    That just leaves too much to the imagination....cat peed in the humidor?, wife found out those sticks didn't cost the same as the Swishers she saw at the drug store?, Spent your $ on a Gurkha sampler and 12 out of 16 wouldn't smoke?

    The mind boggles.

    Wow...this. I got a Gurkha sampler. I can't attest to all of them since I got so frustrated that I stopped smoking them after 5. Two exploded (actually heard them "POP", then split and literally fell apart in my hand), another two had bad wrapper unraveling issues, and the last had a combination of problems.

    But, USPS just dropped off new Cuban Crafters cutter and a MOW sampler. The thought of having a cigar is starting to sound good, instead of infurating.

    I've gotta say...I've not had any more issues with Gurkha cigars than any other brand. And I've smoked a hella lot of Gurkhas. At least 50 of their blends. You get one that unravels sometimes...but the rate is no higher than anybody else. For example, the Perdomo Habano...you look at it cross-eyed and the wrapper splits and unravels...good cigar...terrible construction. Maybe I'm just one of the lucky few...

    Interesting. My first Perdomo Habano did exactly that! Many many more did not, not even once more. I do sometimes feel bad dissing Gurkha, because the tobacco itself is usually top quality, making it even more frustrating when I seem to only get about a 50% smoke rate from them. Same humidor, weeks to months of rest, just like all the other brands that don't unravel, blow up, canoe, etc.

    I'd say you should buy a lottery ticket because you have some good luck. I've smoked a ton of gurkhas there is actually a few blends I used to enjoy but they have to be the most unreliable cigars I've ever set eyes on. I know different people have different experiences but at this point I've written off gurkha completely. But hey enjoy them! If i hadn't already sent out all gurkhas I had left to a brother on here I'd be sending them your way, either way pm me your addy just incase I find a few...

    The whole reason I grabbed the Gurkhas was because years ago an old buddy of mine would smoke them every weekend when we fished. He raved about them and never seemed to have any construction issues. Beyond the rage they gave me, I really did enjoy the Beast and Centurian. I'd take responsibility for one of those unwraps - I mangled the cap with the Colibri grip cutter that I could never seem to get the hang of.

    Welcome to the forum, Ryan. One of the big perks of being active on a forum like this is getting some great advice to avoid future pitfalls/gurkhas. Also, Mike's help is also a big perk here....

    Thanks for the welcome. I've noticed now, but of course didn't even know the forums existed until after ordering. Some threads here realigned my expectations on the Gurkhas before they got to my door, so the experience wasn't altogether surprising.
