In 1887, at the height of British rule, colonial soldiers began to make their own cigars from the local tobacco. The British's predilection for these legendary Nepalese fighters inspired them to name their cigars 'Gurkhas'.
Full of legends and history, the Gurkha cigars were created more than a century ago and today they are reborn as one of the most famous brands of luxury cigars in the world.
Gurkha has become known as a manufacturer of limited editions and rare tobacco products with an excellent and artistically oriented packaging, by delivering exceptional quality and special tobacco blends.
An example of this is the Grand Reserve; a cigar whose tobacco is 'infused' with one of the world's finest Cognac and which offers an unprecedented special flavor.
The term 'infused' does not mean that Cognac is 'injected', but that the tobacco leaves are also moistened with a subtle Cognac spray.
No flavored cigar with a pronounced sweet or clear cognac flavor, but with mild aromas and also a very complex, rich, refined and unique character that will surprise even the most distinctive smoker!
Gurkha is also known as the 'Rolls Royce' among the cigars and is enjoyed by many of the world's elite, including members of the Royalty, government officials, and celebrities. Either way, the range has an unprecedented variety of characters, so there will always be one or more Gurkha cigars that will appeal to different smokers.
