GURKHA CIGARS TO RELEASE SECOND SUPER PREMIUM LUXURY CIGAR“MAHARAJA”
Fort Lauderdale, FL – The world’s finest and most expensive cigar maker –Gurkha Cigars — has reached new heights once again with the release of its second super premium luxury cigar, ‘Maharaja.’
While Gurkha’s original super premium luxury cigar the ‘His Majesty’s Reserve’ is infused with Remy’s Louis XIII Cognac at $2,400 a bottle, the ‘Maharaja’ will not be infused. It is a secret blend of the best quality tobaccos available. The beautiful maduro wrapper pairs Dominican binder and fillers to create a smooth and sweet taste on the lips. To be enjoyed by true cigar connoisseurs, the Gurkha Maharaja is medium bodied and one of a kind. It retails for $500 a stick.
“The limited edition ‘Maharaja’ has set a new precedent for premium tobacco,” said Kaizad Hansotia, founder and CEO of Gurkha Cigars. “We’re excited to be able to pair these rare leaves in such a magnificent and flavorful way. It’s been a while since our first release of the ‘His Majesty’s Reserve’ in 1996 and we think this cigar will set a new standard for an exclusively luxurious smoke to become the ‘king’ of all cigars. I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished with the ‘Maharaja.'”
As with all luxury premium Gurkha Cigars, the ‘Maharaja’ will be available only in small quantities — boxes of 10 cigars — and in limited release — only 100 boxes will be sold. Also, in keeping with the Gurkha tradition of presenting cigars in unique, award-winning artistic packaging,, the ‘Maharaja’ will be presented in an exquisite wooden humidor.
Steeped in legend and rich in history, Gurkha Cigars were named after Nepalese warriors whose bravery impressed the British soldiers. The company was purchased by Hansotia in 1989 with the intention of giving the cigars as unique gifts to customers of his family’s watch business. As a result, the company has been reborn and become one of the most famous brands of luxury cigars in the world. Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Carlos Slim and an assortment of global dignitaries, world leaders, government officials and celebrities as well as the Special Forces and Seal Team Six are all clients. Having extraordinary quality, premium blends of tobacco and a reputation for unparalleled excellence, Gurkha now offers 48 distinct brands of cigars.
