Gurkha’s newest sampler is big, physically. The East India Cargo Chest is a 284-cigar chest that contains previously unreleased vitolas for the company’s Red Witch and Wicked Indie lines. Shipments of the chest to retailers began last week with a retail price of $1,700.00.
Both blends received three unique vitolas. The chest contains:
- 48 Wicked Indie 5 1/2 x 60 Perfecto
- 54 Red Witch 5 1/2 x 60 Perfecto
- 36 Wicked Indie: 7 x 60
- 42 Red Witch: 7 x 60
- 48 Wicked Indie: 6 x 56 Double Fuerte
- 56 Red Witch 6 x 56 Double Fuerte
The Double Fuerte blends are not only unique sizes, but have additional Ligero from the regular blends.
Gurkha is making 1,000 East India Cargo Chests.
