Gaaja_Maduro_and_BP_Torpedo

Gaaja, the second brand launched by Mel Shah’s Bombay Toback got some new extensions to the brand. First up, the company will add a maduro blend featuring a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper over the core Gaaja brand. In addition, a new box-pressed torpedo will be introduced into both the maduro and existing natural blends.

The name Gaaja (pronounced : Gaa-ya) traces back on the Sanskrit name “Gaja” (pronounced guj) which means elephant. Gaaja is a blend that features tobaccos from Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Perú, and Paraguay. While the original Gaaja incorporated a Ecuador Connecticut Desflorado hybrid wrapper, the new Gaaja Maduro uses the Brazilian Mata Fina maduro wrapper over these components.

Gaaja Maduro will come in one size – a 6 x 54 box-pressed torpedo. The same size is being introduced to the Gaaja Natural line.
