Like many cigars before it, one of Gurkha’s newest release is inspired by Cuba.
It’s called Marquesa, a three size-line that company says has a “Cubanesque” flavor and uses packaging inspired by “pre-embargo Cuba.”
As for the blend, it uses a Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from the Estelí and Ometepe regions of Nicaragua.
