Gurkha: Cellar Reserve 18 Year Kraken Cigars
Product Number: 007-028-0100
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 Cellar series utilizes tobaccos that have been aged for a number of years. The Cellar Reserve 18 Year, as the name implies, utilizes 18-year-old tobaccos, including a corojo wrapper and aged Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. A medium to full-bodied blend, the Cellar Reserve 18 Year cigar offers complex tasting notes of earth, coffee, leather, nuts, and spice.
