Gurkha has some serious corporate issues. They burned--pun intended--me with high priced, no-better-than-a-Kroger stick one too many times. The last I got in touch with Cristine, a corporate gal. She promised the stars and delivered rocks. Never, never again will this Marine spend his hard earned cash on the garbage Gurkha passes off. Honestly, I am fairly certain that the Ecuadorian wrapper they claim to use on many of their cigars is anything but. Get Dutch Masters before buying anything from Gurkha.
