    I’ve got one of these in the humi that I’ve had resting for almost a year. I’m not a fan of the Gurkha line, but I’m going to have to pull it out soon and try it. Very nice review.

    I’ve been trying half-heartedly to win a couple of this on Cigar Bid, but I haven’t yet. I did pick up some Black Puros, which were pretty good, but from the sound of it, considerably different than this cigar!

    did you sample just the one or did a few of these unravel?

    Got one of these in a sampler I ordered. You have to be careful with the Gurkhas as they put out so many cigars some are not that great, but The Beast is a fine smoke. Very overpriced for what it is – but if you can get a deal on some then go for it.

    Very nice review!

    I enjoyed it as I was smoking one of them ……

    This cigar and the black beauty from Gurkha are my favorites.

    Have smoked a number of “Beasts” and never had a rolling issue – could be a fluke. Great Cigar. Never understood the big anti-Gurkha sentiment out there – the mainline (Beast, Titan, Beauty) and the limited release series are all solid smokes. And the Park Avenue is one of the best bang for the bucks on the market today if you are a fan of super flavorful connecticut (Almost as good as the Beauty).

    I’ve smoked a few of these and have enjoyed every one of them. I’ve haven’t had a bad wrapper yet either but it could happen. I purchased a 10 pack that just happened to be on a blow-out sale at cigar international at christmas for 39.95. I’m glad i pulled the trigger on these as they now have become one of my favorites to smoke.

    The Gurkha Beast is a joke. It is a $2 cigar and smokes like one too. You can get 5 packs for like $10 on cbid. But why bother? Just buy something that’s worth smoking.

    I had my first Gurkha Beast today after resting in the humi for 3 months. I ordered them online and I can’t remember who from. This cigar is so big that my cutter is too small for the big ring size, so I reverted to the kitchen knife cut carefully. The aroma was delightful. I carefully toasted the foot and drew my first mouthful – wonderful flavours. I had some uneven burning, but it self corrected. At mid-smoke the flavours intensified and I enjoyed it thoroughly. No cracks,or other issues I expected from other reviewers. This is now going to be a favourite of mine.
