Gurkha Cigars will be celebrating three anniversaries/holidays with their upcoming releases, set to make their debut at next week’s PCA trade show in Las Vegas.

The first celebration is Gurkha’s 35th anniversary, which takes place next year, as the company was founded in 1989. For this, Gurkha has announced the 35th Anniversary by Gurkha Cigars, a Dominican project that has been rolled in three sizes: Toro (6″ x 54 | $10.95), Torpedo (6⅛” x 52 | $11.49), and Figurado (6¾” x 52 | $11.95). The cigars were rolled by the El Artista factory of the DR, which is a relatively new partner for Gurkha, most notably rolling the Gurkha Revenant line. The 35th Anniversary arrives in humidors of 75 cigars—containing 25 of each size. For the blend, the cigars use a Habano wrapper, Indonesian binder, and fillers of Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 from the Estelí region.

The next celebration revolves around the company’s Beauty line, now celebrating its 25th anniversary. The Gurkha Beauty 25th Anniversary has an ornate presentation that unfolds to reveal 25 frosted tubes. These cigars use a Corojo wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Ecuadorian Broadleaf fillers, being rolled out of the Tabacalera Las Lavas factory (best known for Casa Cuevas Cigars) in the DR. Gurkha 25th Anniversary Beauty is set at $30 per cigar (MSRP).

“It’s been 25 years since Gurkha first introduced the Beauty and it’s still a favorite cigar amongst connoisseurs,” comments Jim Colucci, President and CEO of Gurkha Cigars, “so we decided to do a special release on the Beauty honoring the 25 year anniversary.”

The final celebration is not of the Gurkha brand, but the 2024 Chinese New Year, whose zodiac symbol is the Year of the Dragon. Gurkha is the next company to join the upscale trend that caters to the Asian market primarily, where a growing number of cigar manufacturers now offer limited blends that tie into each unique zodiac symbol on a rotating 12-year cycle. The Gurkha Year of the Dragon 2024 cigar is rolled in a 6¾” x 52 figurado format, being rolled by the El Artista factory of the DR. It’s become customary for zodiac cigars to feature elaborate red packaging, and the Gurkha edition is no different. There are 1,000 numbered red piano-finish boxes with ornate gold dragons depicted on the box lid and cigar bands, which are priced at $25 per cigar. Gurkha did not disclose the cigar’s blend in a press release.

All three cigars will be on display at the PCA trade show, being joined by two other cigars that were launched at the TPE trade show earlier this year: Gurkha Ghost Connecticut and Gurkha Grand Age II.
