Gurkha Treinta humidors available in Germany. When Gurkha released the cigar to celebrate the 30th anniversary, they released limited edition humidors as well. And as always with Gurkha, those humidors are a joy to the eye. And a limited number of the humidors reached the warehouse of Kleinlagel. Kleinlagel is the German distributor for Gurkha.

Gurkha Treinta

The cigars are blended with Nicaraguan fillers from Jalapa and Esteli. Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 are included in the filler. The binder is an Aganorsa Corojo 99. There are three regular production vitolas. Those are Robusto 5×50, Toro 6×54, and Magnum 6×60. We reviewed the Gurkha Treinta Toro.

But there are also limited edition vitolas. Those are only available with the limited edition humidors. Gurkha made 1000 humidors that include 50 cigars. 25 Gurkha Treinta Belicoso of 6¼×52 and 25 Gurkha Treinta Figurado of 6¾x52. Gurkha did announce tins with all five vitolas as a sampler though. 

Humidors

There are two different humidors available. There is a cabinet with 100 cigars. 50 Gurkha Treinta Belicoso and 50 Gurkha Treinta Figurado. And there is a black table humidor with 50 cigars, 25 of each limited edition vitola.

The cigars and humidors were made before Kaizad Hansotia, Gurkha’s former owner and CEO was forced to step down. When he stepped down, Gurkha started to remove his name from all packaging. Because these humidors were created before the public outrage caused by hurtful and racist comments made by Hansotia, his name is still on the humidors.

Gurkha Treinta is the first collaboration between Gurkha and the famous Tabacos de Valle Jalapa factory. Since then, two more Gurkha lines emerged from the factory of Aganorsa Leaf. The Gurkha Nicaragua line and the soon to be released Gurkha San Miguel also come from the factory known as TABSA.
