Cigar Review: Gurkha Royal Challenge Maduro Toro

Initial Thoughts:

The first few puffs were a little ashy-tasting. The middle smoked smooth and the flavor was somewhat mild. The draw was easy and consistent the entire way through.

CigarScore 2

Brand: Gurkha
Line: Royal Challenge, Maduro
Size: 6 x 52
Cut: Punch

Final Thoughts:

The cigar was good, not anything special. I've had better cigars for the same price, and better cigars for slightly less.

I give the Gurkha Royal Challenge a CigarScore of 2 because I would smoke it again, but I wouldn't seek this cigar out above others. However, I wouldn't avoid it or steer people away from it.
