Gurkha: Ghost Asura Cigars
Product Number: 007-028-0074
The term Gurkha stems from the Anglo-Nepalese war, when British soldiers began referring to Nepali fighters as Gurkhas. The military prowess of these soldiers impressed the British so much that the Gurkhas became an official military regiment within the British Indian Army, their skill in battle and steely resolve having become legend. In the late 19th century, British soldiers began rolling their own cigars from local tobacco and named these cigars after the legendary regiment, cigars whose production continued in various ways for over a century. In 1989, Kaizad Hansotia founded Gurkha cigars in its modern iteration, expanding its reach and focusing on offering super-premium cigars that would come to be associated with an upper-echelon experience and the utmost quality.
Gurkha's Ghost cigar is a medium-bodied blend that boasts an extremely dark Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper atop an aged Criollo 1998 binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Complex and rich with flavor, the Ghost has become one of Gurkha's most popular and recognizable blends, complete with enchanting packaging and a profile showcasing pepper, earth, and subtle sweetness.
