The vintage Cellar Reserve uses the finest quality 15 year-old aged tobacco, comprised of an oily Criollo 1998 wrapper, that combines an aged Dominican, Olor binder with a 15 year old Criollo, Nicaraguan filler. These cigars are housed in unique 20 count wooden boxes that aesthetically evoke a maturing wine barrel. Cellar Reserve is a delicious medium to full-bodied cigar that is available in 5 different sizes: 4 x 58 Perfecto, 5 x 58 Doble Robusto, 6 x 58 Gran Rothchild, 7 x 54 Churchill and a 6 x 60 XO, with an MSRP ranging from $7.99-$12.95

Gurkha’s second release is the dignified Royal Challenge, a medium bodied cigar that is smooth and complex. The blend is highlighted by a silky, Connecticut/Ecuadorian shade wrapper, with a Habano, Honduran binder, complimented by Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The Royal Challenge will be available in majestic 20 count boxes in 5 different sizes: 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 50 Toro, 6.5 x 53 Torpedo, 7 x 52 Churchill and 6 x 60 XO, with an MSRP ranging from $5.98-$8.50.

The third release, Seduction, is designed to captivate the palate. This tasty and appealing, medium bodied blend has an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, with a Dominican, Olor binder with a Corojo, Columbian filler. Seduction comes in sleek and alluring 20 count boxes and will be available in 4 sizes: 5 x 55 Robusto, 6 x 55 Toro, 7 x 55 Churchill and a 6 x 60 XO with an MSRP ranging from $6.80-$9.50.

  1. Enjoyed in a snow storm c a glass of Tres Generation sipping tequila !

  2. The Guekha Cellar Res. Rothchild is a smooth and creamy smoke. After two weeks sitting in my cooler I finally broke them out. The Rothchild is a medium to slight full body smoke. Can be smoked by a novice or true aficionado. Bought at a B&M and can say they are at best a good smoke. NOt overpowering or harsh. Good with a glass of Taylor Fladgate Porto.

  3. Well I have received both boxes of Gurkha’s and will give a review after they rest. Also they can be purchased for far less on line. I know it takes from the B&M, but if one can save money why not. Will be back in two weeks on them. Semper Fi

  4. Just ordered a box of Gurkha Churchill’s. Will give review in about two weeks after they rest. This is becoming my new favorite for 2012.

  5. Bougth the last six on a whim that they would be a geeat smoke. Well they were and the flavor and burn were right on. Great flavor and an even burn. Lot of smoke and easy on the palate, not to strong. Medium body and great ring gauge size. Waiting for my box of Cellar Reserve 15 to come in. They sold all the boxes they got in less than a week. Gurkha is living up to its name and history.
