At this week’s Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) trade show, Gurkha Cigar Group, Inc. will release a maduro version of its Prize Fighter line, a value-priced Cuban sandwich cigar.
It uses a maduro wrapper of undisclosed origin over a Sumatra binder and a mix of Dominican long and short filler. It is being offered in the same three sizes as the Connecticut-wrapped version, which debuted in 2013:
- Gurkha Prize Fighter Maduro Robusto (5 x 52) — $2.50 (Bundle of 20, $50)
- Gurkha Prize Fighter Maduro Toro (6 x 54) — $2.70 (Bundle of 20, $54)
- Gurkha Prize Fighter Maduro XO (6 x 60) — $2.90 (Bundle of 20, $58)
All three sizes are available in 20-count bundles, while retailers will have the option to display them in 60-count trays that hold 20 of each size.
Each size is also offered in a five-count fresh pack pouch.
The company has not disclosed where the cigars are being made, but did refer to it being made at a Dominican factory.
TPE 2020 takes place Jan. 29-31 in Las Vegas.
