Gurkha releasing two new lines. And both lines are in the budget category. One is a completely new line, a revived old Cuban brand. The other one is a new line extension of an existing line. 

“These new offerings epitomizes what a value cigar should be which a great cigar for a great price,” said Jim Colucci, President of Gurkha Cigars. “These cigars have the quality and flavor of premium cigars but at an incredibly attractive price point.”

The new line that Gurkha will be releasing is Castle Hall. This is an old Cuban brand, revitalizes as a Dominican cigar by Gurkha. The cigars are mild to medium with a Connecticut Shade wrapper from Ecuador. The binder is Habano from Ecuador. The fillers are from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. There will be three sizes, a 5×52 Robusto, a 6×54 Toro, and a 6×60 Magnum.

Prize Fighter

A few years ago, Gurkha introduced a bundle cigar, the Prize Fighter. That cigar became quite successful, partly because of the price point. The original Prize Fighter sports a Connecticut Shade wrapper. But now there’s a new Prize Fighter. Gurkha is adding a Prize Fighter Maduro. This medium filler is made in the Dominican Republic. The wrapper is Maduro from undisclosed Origen. Then there’s a Sumatra binder. And the filler, Cuban sandwich style, comes from the Dominican Republic. The Prize Fighter Maduro will be available in bundles and in fresh-lock pouches. There are currently three sizes planned, a 5×52 Robusto, 6×54 Toro, and a 6×60 XO. Those are the same sizes and packaging as the original Prize Fighter.

Gurkha Cigars are available in over 70 countries globally. If the cigars become available in each and every country is up to Gurkha’s distributing partner in each and every individual country.
