At next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Gurkha Cigar Group Inc. will unveil Chateau de Prive, a new limited edition line.

The cigars are packaged in bright, domed boxes. A press release describes the cigar as a “traditional mild and creamy smoke,” that it says is a departure from its normal blends. It uses an Ecuadorian desflorado wrapper, a Dominican olor binder and Dominican fillers.

It will be offered in three sizes, each limited to an initial run of 300 boxes of 20.

  • Gurkha Chateau de Prive Bishop (5 x 50) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
  • Gurkha Chateau de Prive Rook (6 x 46) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
  • Gurkha Chateau de Prive King of Warriors (6 1/2 x 52) — $11 (Boxes of 20, $220)

The company says it will begin shipping the cigars in “October/November.”

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
