Cigar Alert: Gurkha 35th Anniversary Release!

Experience the Unveiling of Gurkha's 35th Anniversary Humidor at The Cigar Bank, featuring three exquisite cigar variants. 


The origin of the term Gurkha traces back to the Anglo-Nepalese war when British soldiers admired Nepali fighters and named them Gurkhas. This admiration led to the Gurkhas becoming an official military regiment in the British Indian Army.In the late 19th century, British soldiers in the region began handcrafting cigars using local tobacco. In 1989, Gurkha Cigars was founded by Kaizad Hansotia.


The latest creation, the 35th Anniversary by Gurkha Cigars, was recently unveiled at the PCA Convention. Crafted in the Dominican Republic by El Artista, these cigars are presented in a 150-count humidor, featuring 75 cigars in three distinct shapes and sizes (25 of each configuration). The Toro (6×54) is priced at $14, the Torpedo (6 1/8×52) at $16, and the Figurado (6 3/4×52) at $17. Juan Lopez, VP of Sales, describes the humidor as an "ornate, piano finish, red addition to anyone’s cigar and accessory collection."

The cigars inside are even better, boasting a beautiful Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Indonesian binder, and Criollo 98 Nicaraguan Esteli fillers."
