Gurkha Cigars is begun shipment of its re-released Master Select. The very popular Master Select was originally introduced to the market place in 2001 and was that year’s best selling cigar.

“The Master Select is a beautifully crafted cigar that was always a Gurkha nation favorite,” said Kaizad Hansotia, CEO of Gurkha Cigars. “We are excited that the Master Select is arriving in stores and that our customers will once again be able to indulge with this rich, smooth cigar.”

The Cigar was made by the Olivas family in 2001 and is one blend that will be available in five sizes. We went back to Fidel Olivas where we discovered he still had the original recipe allowing us to re-release this immensely popular cigar. The blend is known as the OVB (Original Vintage Blend).
