Gurkha’s updated San Miguel is off to stores.

The company has announced that the new San Miguel by Gurkha, now made in Nicaragua, is now shipping. Earlier this year, Gurkha said it was planning on introducing a new version of San Miguel, an older brand that was made in the Dominican Republic using an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.


Gurkha is once again using AGANORSA’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory to produce the line, the third new Gurkha line to be made by the factory in roughly one year. It is a Nicaraguan puro using a shade grown wrapper.

It is offered in three sizes, each sold in boxes of 20.

  • San Miguel by Gurkha Petite Corona (4 1/4 x 42) — $9.50 (Box of 20, $190)
  • San Miguel by Gurkha Robusto (5 x 52) — $9.75 (Box of 20, $195)
  • San Miguel by Gurkha Toro (6 x 54) — $9.95 (Box of 20, $199)
