There’s a new limited edition from Gurkha that will be revealed at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, the Gurkha Nicaragua Series.
The line is a Nicaraguan puro made exclusively with AGANORSA tobacco and made at AGANORSA’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Nicaragua. It features a corojo 99 clara wrapper, two corojo 99 binders and a filler of corojo 99 and criollo 98. The company calls it medium to three-quarters in terms of a strength profile.
It is being offered in four sizes:
- Gurkha Nicaragua Series Robusto (5 x 52) — $9.75 (Box of 20, $195)
- Gurkha Nicaragua Series Toro (6 x 54) — $9.95 (Box of 20, $199)
- Gurkha Nicaragua Series Magnum (6 x 60) — $10.95 (Box of 20, $219)
- Gurkha Nicaragua Series Belicoso (6 1/8 x 52) — $10.95 (Box of 20, $219)
According to a press release, the company said that it is a limited run cigar and thus it is being limited only to Gurkha’s top retailers who will be invited to purchase the line, but limited to just five boxes per size, per store. It is slated to ship to retailers in late August.
