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.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
