An attractive stick, though that is one of the few positive points I can make about Gurkha Doble Maduro.
Appearance : Rating:
Very handsome cigar. Seemed like it would be so much better than it was.
Construction : Rating:
Again, Gurkha Doble Maduro looked nice, but once you began to feel it you easily found the hollow spots and lumps. Well disguised though.
Flavor : Rating:
Started out really weak and a hard draw. The first third wasn’t impressive at all. It gained momentum on the second, but oddly enough there was still no flavor, more of a spicy stinginess. Strange. The final third was about the same. Bland with a little sting to it.
Value : Rating:
By far not worth the price.
Overall Rating : Overall Rating:
I spent the whole time trying to stop runs and keep a steady burn. The work far outweighed the quality.
