Made under the blend masters from K Hansotia & Co, Prize Fighter is a consistent, mild-medium bodied cigar with a smooth and elegant flavor profile that can be enjoyed at anytime of the day. This hand-crafted cigar showcases a gorgeous Connecticut shade/Ecuadorian wrapper, that pairs perfectly with an Ecuadorian/Indonesian binder and a 3-year aged Dominican filler.

“We are very excited and optimistic about the launch of Prize Fighter,” said Juan Lopez, National Sales Director of Gurkha Cigar Group. “We like to call this product ‘recession proof’, due to its affordability and great quality.  This is a new venture for the company as we enter into the value-priced cigar category. We have very high expectations for this brand.”

About the author

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
