Gurkha Cellar Reserve

I went to my local cigar shop, yesterday, to support the local economy and discuss the intricacies of humidifying in a West Texas winter. I purchased several cigars. Being a fan of Gurkha, I picked up a Cellar Reserve XO. I didn't let this one rest in my humidor. The draw was decent and I fired it up. The first inch of the cigar was great. Mild to medium flavor. A very enjoyable cigar. After the first inch it all went to hell. The draw became harder and the burn became very uneven. Between the hard draw and trying to fix the terribly uneven burn, the taste suffered.
Cigars are my relaxation but, when I have to fight to keep it going, that ruins it for me.
That being said, I will try another one. The first inch was great. Maybe I grabbed the sour apple from the bunch. The next one will rest in my humidor for a month or so.
I'll let you know how that goes.

I'm a big Gurkha fan, but they do make some miserable cigars from time to time. I just checked and I don't have any of the Cellar reserves. I'll be looking for your report on the second one when you get around to it. If you like the big rings, Gurkha makes a dynamite nub type cigar, The Black Dragon Fury Nublizer. They also make other sizes of the Black Dragon, but they are mediocre.

Gurkha Cellar Reserve

I'll try the Black Dragon. Thanks. I do prefer the larger ring sizes.
I also noticed that posted this in the wrong forum. Feel free to move it.

Be worth a try. The first Cellar Reserve I've seen was at my local shop last Saturday. I haven't seen it online. I will keep an eye out for the Limitada.

The Reserve limitada is now supposed to be in shops as a B&M exclusive.
