Gurkha goes white glove with the Gurkha Colección Especial cigar, offering a regal smoking experience for those looking to pick up on the subtle nuances of a complex tobacco recipe. The cigars were first offered as a TAA exclusive in early 2022, and have now opened up (though still remaining a small-batch production) to a wider range of tobacconists across the country.
Gurkha Colección Especial is handcrafted at the famed PDR Cigars factory of the Dominican Republic, rolled under the watchful eye of tobacco artisan Abe Flores. The blend begins with a unique Connecticut hybrid wrapper, which surrounds a Mexican-grown Sumatra binder and fillers of Connecticut Broadleaf and Habano from an undisclosed region. This is a fine-tuned recipe that can just as easily accompany celebratory experiences as it could a morning cup of coffee. With a mild to medium intensity, the Colección Especial brings gentle and long-lasting flavors of clean cedar, buttered nuts, barnyard hay, and tangy citrus rind.
