  1. Cigar Questions
    I came across a cigar in my local shop the other day called an ancient warrior by K. Hansonita. I know that's the brand that makes Gurkha but this doesn't have that regular Gurkha label. In fact, it says nothing about Gurkha. Have they changed their labels and killing the gurkha name? Does...

    Take it from this ancient warrior, the Gurkha cigar by the same name is just not worth it. Sure it's a pretty cigar and the burn is above average, ... Read the full review here: Gurkha Ancient Warrior Torpedo Cigar Review - Takes One to Know One

    Hello All, Its that time of the year, when new cigars are rolling in. Out of the new lot, this one was one of my favorite. Gurkha Ancient Reserve is the latest blow from Kaizad Hansotia. One of their popular line, Gurkha Ancient Warrior, is a base blend of which Gurkha Ancient Reserve was born...

    Thanks to Pugsley for this gift Excellent construction, easy light up, smelled great, very good draw and lots of smoke. First inch was very spicey and peppery, almost too much. Then after that it went downhill IMO. It got very bland and boring I tasted, and lost flavor and became very mild...

    I rested this thing for 6 months in mu humi, fired it up and it was still very harsh. Plenty of spice, but it was not a very enjoyable cigar. Const... Read the full review here: Gurkha Ancient Warrior Robusto Cigar Review - Too Much Hype

    CI used to have purple banded ancient warriors which were a blend exclusive to them. I'm not talking about the ancient warriors that are still widely available elsewhere. These were 7x54 monsters with very distinctive packaging and only available at CI. For some reason they discontinued...

    Just smoked my first "Ancient Warrior" tonight. Wow it rocks. It had been sitting in my humi for a few months and I was afraid of trying it just in case it was not good. Now I want to get a box. Anyone know who has the best deal right now?

    I was googling for "pipe rooms" when I came across this little NY Times article from 1904 about a nursing home's method for dealing with the pipe smoking of its residents. The article, titled "Ancient Pipes of Old Men" starts...In the Home for the Aged, conducted by the Little Sisters of the...

    Another Newbie review so bear with me, the thing that made me the most excited about this cigar was i was able to narrow down what i was tasting:) Over all very good looking cigar, real dark (thats what i generally like), veiny, smelled aweasome. Well i go to light it up and i start getting...

    Finished work and decided to kick back with a good smoke and a cold drink. Pulled out this Ancient Warrior Churchill that had been sitting in my humidor for about a month. At first it was a mildly pleasant smoke but then I noticed the ash started curving. Within 15 minutes the ash fell off on...

    Wrapper: Brazilian Binder/Filler: Nicaraguan Filler: Dominician/Honduran Size: Churchill 7 x 50 Price: $5.25 Appearance and Construction: (14) This smoke at first glance just looks like a great cigar. The dark Brazilian wrapper was rich and inviting with a few veins running throughout the...

    I've not had a ton of experience with Ghurka cigars and I've never, until now, smoked this one, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a large cigar with a 52 RG, so I was afraid I would get bored with it. I was wrong. It had a nice appearance and pleasant pre light aroma. Upon lighting I...

    The dark natural wrapper is a thing of beauty. Very uniform with an oily sheen, silky to the touch, smooth and only the smallest of veins can be seen. The scent is that of rich tobacco. It starts off medium-strong and somewhat spicy, with a very tight draw, and burning down one side. About...

    Today i finally got to try one of those Gurkha Ancient Warriors that I bought a while back on cigarsinternational. A lot of folks on here told me they were excellent... and you guys were right. This was a churchill size, and took me almost 2 and a half hours to smoke it. i still had just under...

    These cigars are exclusive to Serious Cigars. I figured I'd share them here since there has been positive talk of Serious Cigars. SeriousCigars.com is proud to have an exclusive size from Gurkha's Ancient Warrior line. The 6 x 60 Perfecto #1 is a wonderful addition to the hugely popular Ancient...

    Apart from a too tight draw, this had some nice flavor. One third in and the draw loosened and then developed into a cinnamony/dark cocoa flavor that I much enjoyed. Then, at the halfway point: Ammonia. Not "hint of Ammonia." I mean "eyes watering, throat burning, WWI frontlines German gas...
