Gurkha Cigar - The Rolls-Royce of Cigars

Gurkha Master Select Churchill #5 is my favorite cigar. It's a 7.5 inch, 52 ring gauge cigar, medium to full bodied and complex in flavor. The delicious Gurkha Master’s Select cigars are hand-rolled from fine tobaccos grown in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic, expertly blended with an aged mixture of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Honduran long-fillers. The gorgeous, dark and silky, Dominican-grown Havana 2000 wrapper imparts a rich, creamy flavor with a hint of spice and pleasant, finish with a burst of flavor.

They arrive in exquisite mahogany boxes of 25 cigars wrapped inside in a sleeve for authenticity. The cigars of each box are tied together in the island fashion; even the limited production boxes are numbered (only 3000 in each size are made). This Cuban look alike is as close as you can legally get to the real thing. And while it may pay tribute to the Cubans of yore, in the opinion of the connoisseurs who smoke it, it’s better. It is indeed the Rolls-Royce of Cigars.

So get a box, light one up with a Gin & Tonic and enjoy the smoke. I have included couple of videos about Gurkha cigars for your viewing pleasure.

Here is a tour of Gurkha Booth at the 2008 IPCPR in Las Vegas. The smooth talking fellow goes over a lot of the type of cigars they make:

Here is a video on how they make Gurkhas:

  1. It really needs to be said that Gurkha makes one of the most henious cigars out there on the market. Reportedly just rebanded generic cigars, these have created so much media hype that people who don't know cigars have started to know them as "the best cigars". Rather, any self respecting cigar smoker outside of the United States would know how shite these are.

    In fact, the His Majesty's Reserve can now be found for under $750 for the box on certain cigar shops that can't sell the things. They're still sitting there for $750. If you don't believe me, just read "HalfWheel"'s review on the product. Compare that to their regular line that is even more abhorrent.
