Team Cigar Review: Gurkha Real Toro

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha Real Toro

The Gurkha Real Toro was a pleasant, albeit fairly average flavor experience throughout. The last third was unbalanced and did detract somewhat. The profile is quite light, and certainly fits for a more classic Connecticut profile, so would appeal to cigar smokers who only smoke in the lighter end of the spectrum. For me, this cigar didn't do enough to differentiate from the other Connecticut offerings in the market.

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha San Miguel Toro

The Gurkha San Miguel Toro was an average cigar from start to finish. It produced an AGANORSA flavor that you find with some of the lower end offerings. This wasn't a cigar composed with the best AGANORSA tobacco. It was earthy with some damp wood and pepper spice. Medium-full throughout. Nothing really to write home about and expand on.

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha Treinta Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Gurkha Treinta Toro

The Gurkha Treinta Toro had some sneaky strength as I began feeling the nicotine a bit at the halfway point. As a cigar that is celebrating a big anniversary, it didn't show as something special. That, along with the high price point, doesn't really intrigue me to revisit this one.

Personal Cigar Review: Gurkha Nicaragua Series Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Gurkha Nicaragua Series Toro

The Gurkha Nicaragua Series Toro was fairly average throughout and didn't provide much in the way of exciting moments. It's interesting to see an Aganorsa sourced blend for the brand and we'll see if this leads to more offerings. If so, I would be interested to try them, but for this cigar, it's not something I see myself returning to.
