Ahead of IPCPR—now only two weeks away—Gurkha Cigars has unveiled the company’s updates to be showcased at the trade show. There are four projects, which Gurkha describes as “remastered predicate blends.”

We are excited to introduce these cigars that underscore Gurkha’s focus on creating quality cigars for all palettes. Our blending team worked hard to create cigars that would be a great addition to any cigar lovers humidor.Kaizad Hansotia, CEO of Gurkha Cigars

Chateau de Prive

This smoke will appeal to the medium and full-bodied smokers and is made of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper changing the complexity of flavor from the original Ghost’s sweet flavor profile to a nutty and earthy profile. An aged Criollo 1998 Binder and carefully selected U.S., Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers complement the Habano wrapper.
