The first box-pressed Gurkha cigar released since the inception of the Regent blend, Viper will tantalize your palate with super rich and bold flavors with a hearty, peppery bite on the finish.
Gurkha is a brand with many line extensions. The company's president, Kaizad Hansotia, focuses his attention on strict quality control and unique, rare packaging. Gurkha cigars are considered some of the most super-premium blends in the world and are enjoyed by society's elite social groups, including heads of state and even the Sultan of Brunei. You can always expect excellent construction and consistency with Gurkha along with unique and enjoyable flavors.
Gurkha Viper is an excellent departure from Gurkha's other blends. Chock full of full-bodied Nicaraguan tobaccos all masked by a Dominican binder and a thick Dominican wrapper, the blend is bold and satisfying. Expect notes of pepper, spices, and earth with a floral aroma as the box-pressed design creates an amazingly smooth, balanced concoction. Some sweet flavors are noticeable throughout as well. Viper will burn long and true, and it tastes great with a hearty libation such as a peaty scotch or a hoppy India Pale Ale.
Cigars were just good this time. They were dry and the wrapper crumbled while cutting the end. After several weeks in a humidor they are almost where they should be. They were not ready for my brother in laws party however.
We will try again when I order more later.

easy to smoke, mild to medium without an after taste or bite. Maybe not as flavorful as other Gurhkas I've smoked but a relaxing smoke I could enjoy anytime. Wrapping on a few cigars was not tight, but most were ideal

I like Gurkha, but these smoked a little fast and a little harsh
