Personally I am not a fan of Gurka's and feel they are well promoted without the backup in taste, no problems with construction though. That said, they selling this combo well under what you could by in a store and the low point for Gurka's is about $49 for 20 cigars then goes higher so the deal is there.

Note CI sent my cigars to the wrong address 6 times and 4 calls and about 5 tries to change on line to correct them and without vulgarities or meanness although I was very cynical they stopped selling to me when I complained after their 6th misfire to a manager--so price wise CI is good if you read the rest of this post do I really have to comment on customer service there?????

@marc15: I agree with the customer service aspect and them not being the "best" cigars. They have gotten my order wrong before, it was remedied, only after I realized that I was missing 4 sticks. (I got a single instead of a 5 pack that I ordered.)

I think Gurkas are a lot of hype, but like the deal from last week, $22-ish shipped for 10 sticks is hard to beat, especially with brand names.

So CI (Cigars International) and this company (Cigar.com) are one in the same?

@drhardcrab: Yes. The address on both websites is 1911 Spillman Dr. Bethlehem, PA 18015.
Also cigarbid.com.

Darn them. I filled up my humidor with the deal last week and now there's this. Gurkhas aren't my favorite either but at this price... Whelp, looks like I've got some smokin to do.

I would consider any cigar that is well seasoned to be pretty good regardless of brand- stored in a humidor at 70% humidity and 70 degrees F. The rest is just preference or perhaps marketing.

With that said, <$2 a cigar is a great deal for when you have friends over.

I have a baby on the way in 6 weeks. I am not a cigar guy but figured I would get a few to give out for the sake of tradition. What is the best way for me to store them for a couple months without buying a humidor?

@envoyxl: Just keep them in a room without fluctuations in temperature (70 degrees such as a basement), perhaps in a cabinet so they are not in direct light. If I plan on smoking them soon after I get, I usually even leave them in the same bag they came in.

@envoyxl: First off, congratulations! Second, if you don't want a humidor, just buy a gel humidor pack. They sell them on the same site as the deal. They are packs that either come wet or need to have distilled water poured on them to keep your sticks at a constant humidity. You can store them in a small hard sided cooler for a couple months with that without a problem. Think something that will hold like a 6 pack or a good sized lunch and don't forget to rewet the gel occasionally.

@need4mospd: Damn! And i thought I was the cigar expert! ;-] BTW, I ordered these. Only smoked 3 of them so far. No bad. Most of the Gurkas I've had in the past were just so-so....
