The Gurkha Status cigar is a special edition cigar that Gurkha released in late 2007. These cigars have a light tan colored Connecticut Shade wrapper. Pre-light, the cigar has a firm feel and a very mild aroma. These cigars can best be described as having mild pepper, citrus and floral flavors. In the latter rounds of the smoke, it becomes creamier and not nearly as much spice. Hold on though, the spice returns on the last bit of the cigar. The cigar burns evenly and gives off plenty of smoke. These cigars are an easy 1 hour smoke.
