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.

  • Gurkha Marquesa Robusto (5 x 52) — $8 (Boxes of 20, $160)
  • Gurkha Marquesa Toro (6 x 54) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
  • Gurkha Marquesa Belicoso (5 x 54) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)

Marquesa will debut at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 13 in Las Vegas, and will ship to retailers in August.
