Gurkha Cigars are known throughout the world for their premium and luxurious cigars, so it’s no surprise that they are one of the most sought-after cigars around the globe.
Gurkha Cigars has re-mastered several predicate blends to create impressive cigars that were introduced this July at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association Trade show set to take place in Las Vegas where Gurkha unveiled the Chateau de Prive, Marquesa and Ghost Gold.
“We are excited to introduce cigars that underscore Gurkha’s focus on creating quality cigars for all palettes,” said Kaizad Hansotia, CEO of Gurkha Cigars. “Our blending team worked hard to create cigars that would be a great addition to any humidor.”
The Chateau de Prive in a limited edition box will be a unique addition to Gurkha’s flavor profile. While most Gurkha smokes are notable for their spicy and bold flavor, the Chateau de Prive is a more traditional mild and creamy smoke that is typically found with many of the high-end Dominican cigars but as with all Gurkha
products, this cigar will feature an exquisite complexity from flavor to packaging. The cigars will be available in three sizes in 20 count boxes. The initial run will be very limited with only 300 boxes available per size. This velvety smoke is made with an Ecuadorian Desflorado wrapper, a Dominican Olor binder and Dominican filler.
Marquesa is a beautiful cigar reminiscent of the flavor and packaging of pre-embargo Cuba. The cigar has a vintage Cuban feel from the blend, which is a spicy “Cubanesque” flavor, to the packaging. The cigars will be available in three sizes in 20 count boxes (10 round and 10 box press cigars). The Marquesa features an earthy Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder and an Ometepe and Esteli Nicaragua filler resulting in a bold well-balanced medium body and spicy cigar.
The success and popularity of Gurkha’s Ghost led the company to expand its offerings with this blend. Gurkha dug deep into their predicate blend book to fine-tune this cigar, which has a bolder profile than the original Ghost. The cigars will initially be available in 21 count boxes in three sizes. This smoke will appeal to the
medium and full-bodied smokers and is made of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper changing the complexity of flavor from the original Ghost’s sweet flavor profile to a nutty and earthy profile. An aged Criollo 1998 Binder and carefully selected U.S., Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers complement the Habano wrapper.
