Last night I tried the Gurkha G3 Toro.  Honestly, I was really wanting to try the Grand Age, but the only one the shop had in that variety was really big and I didn’t feel like taking the time to smoke it.  It was already late.  The G3 has a very dark Nicaraguan wrapper, a camaroon binder and Nicaraguan filler.  The cigar was quite smooth, had a bit of a tight draw that didn’t produce enough smoke and had a perfectly even burn.  Honestly, I expected this super dark wrapper to give out a bit more flavor.  It wasn’t flavorless, but it didn’t have enough flavor to make it very distinctive at all.  It was a fairly large cigar (6×50) that seemed to smoke a little fast, but did stay very cool the entire way through.  All in all, it was a very well made cigar, that didn’t impress me with it’s flavors or body.  In consideration of my rating coming primarily from preference and the expectation of a dark wrapper to give more of a medium to full bodied smoke, I’ll rate the G3 at an even C and say it wasn’t worth the $9 price tag.

  1. Yea, some Gurkhas can be oddly bland. They are well made and handsome cigars most of the time and their presentation is rarely rivaled. Very few cigars are worth 9.00 a piece. 😛
