Gurkha has begun announcing its new releases for the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, and among them will be a new line called the Gurkha Real.
It sports an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper atop a Dominican olor binder, with a Dominican criollo 98 ligero and seco paired with Nicaraguan secos in the filler to create what the company called a smooth, mild to medium smoke.
It is being released in four sizes:
- Gurkha Real Robusto (5 x 52) – $8 (Boxes of 20, $160)
- Gurkha Real Toro (6 x 54) – $8.50 (Boxes of 20, $170)
- Gurkha Real Churchill (7 x 52) – $8.95 (Boxes of 20, $179)
- Gurkha Real Magnum (6 x 60) – $8.95 (Boxes of 20, $179)
The Gurkha Real is being made at Tabacalera Las Lavas in the Dominican Republic and is expected to begin shipping in late August.
