At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Gurkha Cigars unveiled the Gurkha Malt Collection. The Malt Collection is a sampler of five distinct blends, each designed to pair with a particular spirit.
The cigars in the Gurkha Malt Collection are not infused cigars, but each blend has was made with a spirit pairing in mind. The blends include: Oak Blend, Sherry Cask, Portwood, Havana Spice, and Single Cask Blend. The tobaccos in the blend have not been disclosed. Each cigar is a 6 1/4 x 60 vitola that is packaged in an individual glass tube.
The Malt Collection is available in five count boxes. Each box contains all five of the Malt Collection blends.
Pairings were a theme for Gurkha at IPCPR as the company also released the Gurkha Blendmaster’s Cask and Gurkha Bourbon Collection. The Blendmaster’s Cask is another cigar blended to pair with a spirit while the Bourbon Collection is an infused cigar.
