Gurkha Hansotia Gold

Does anybody have an opinion on this cigars? Would be interested to hear reviews of it - picks or pans. It isn't on the Cigar Review top25cigar.com.

There is a special on them... Wondering if it is worth the effort. I have already exceeded my cigar budget, but...

Thanks.

Todd

Todd,
This is just my opinion, but there are much better cigars out there for your money. To me these cigars are rather bland and lackluster.

I smoked one this morning. The box it came from is about 3 years old, and isn't exactly a Gurkha yet at that time...these were K. Hansotia Symphonys, and i thought they were great, mainly because they have been box aged 3 yrs now.

Guys, I do believe there is a difference between the Hansotia Symphonys and the Hansotia Gold. I am curious about the gold line, not the symphony. I was aware that the symphony is a milder cigar, but the gold is touted a stronger....

Opinions???

Not my intention to jack this thread, but has anyone tried the Gurkha Black Puro? Had one a few nights ago. Highly enjoyable.

I had one on Saturday. It tasted like a Legend with a little something extra. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but it was quite tasty. I think I'm going to need a few more before I make a judgment.
