June 29, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



Gurkha Cigar Group International announces the new products set to be revealed at the PCA (Premium Cigar Association) Convention in Las Vegas, NV next week. Gurkha Cigars will showcase their entire portfolio as well as some new additional projects that they’ve been working on.

The 35th Anniversary by Gurkha Cigars is a brand new project showcasing at the PCA Convention.  Made in the Dominican Republic by El Artista, this cigars debut in a 150 count humidor with 75 cigars in 3 different shapes and sizes (25 of each configuration).  The Toro (6×54) will retail for $10.95, the Torpedo (6 1/8×52) will retail for $11.49, and the Figurado (6 3/4×52 will retail at $11.95.  “This ornate, piano finish, red humidor will be a great addition to anyone’s cigar and accessory collection,” says Juan Lopez, Vice President of Sales. “The cigars inside are even better!  A beautiful Maduro wrapper covers the 35th Anniversary with an Indonesian binder and Criollo 98 Nicaraguan Esteli fillers.”

Gurkha is also honoring the 25th Anniversary of an old company favorite.  The Beauty 25th Anniversary will be showcasing in an exquisite box that opens wide with 25 frosted tubes inside.  “It’s been 25 years since Gurkha first introduced the Beauty and it’s still a favorite cigar amongst connoisseurs,” comments Jim Colucci, President and CEO of Gurkha Cigars, “so we decided to do a special release on the Beauty honoring the 25 year anniversary.”  With a Corojo wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Ecuadorian Broadleaf fillers, the Gurkha 25th Anniversary Beauty will retail at $30 a piece and will be made in the Dominican Republic by Las Lavas Cigars.  

Last, and certainly not the least, Gurkha Cigars will be paying respect to the Year of the Dragon 2024.  The Year of the Dragon is a limited release with 1000 numbered, red piano finish boxes with ornate gold dragons on top.  Each box will contain 15 Figurado (6 3/4×52) cigars made by El Artista in the Dominican Republic.  This proprietary blend will hold an MSRP of $25 and is offered by invitation only at the PCA Convention.  

Gurkha Cigar Group is also set to introduce two new projects released earlier in the year at the TPE (Total Product Expo): The Gurkha Ghost Connecticut and the Grand Age II.  This is the first time that most premium cigar retailers at a convention will be seeing these products that have already hit the market if they did not attend the TPE or TAA Conventions earlier this year.  

Gurkha Cigars are known throughout the world for their premium cigars. The company produces millions of cigars per year that are sold in more than 70 countries worldwide. While Gurkha is known for its exclusivity, it has an impressive array of brands of flawlessly handcrafted, premium cigars created in a variety of strengths, tasting profiles and price-points. No matter what your taste, there’s a Gurkha cigar that’s perfect for your palate.
