Kicking off the 2018 TAA gathering, held from April 29th to May 3rd, Gurkha Cigars has announced their first exclusive cigar as participation with the TAA (Tobacconists’ Association of America). TAA members and cigar manufacturers are gathering in Casa de Campo, La Romana in the Dominican Republic, where the complete lineup of limited edition blends and sizes will be revealed for the TAA’s 50th anniversary.
Gurkha Cigars has unveiled its first Tobacco Association of America (TAA) exclusive cigar, which is an extension of the company’s Heritage line. The handcrafted premium cigar is made of an Ecuador Habano wrapper and binder, and Peruvian and Nicaraguan filler.
Gurkha created a special blend and size that will be available for pre-sale at this year’s TAA conference in a limited 10-count box. Only 1000 of the 6X52 Toro box press exclusive cigars will be made and they will retail for $100 per box. The limited edition cigars are expected to begin shipping to TAA retailers this summer.
“We are excited to introduce our first ever TAA exclusive cigar and will be making this an annual tradition at Gurkha,” said Carlos Llaca, Director of Operations. “We were looking to make something special for the TAA’s 50th Anniversary and we feel this is the perfect cigar to celebrate the association and its members.”
