The Gurkha Ghost line is expanding. At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, the company will introduce two new figuardo shaped vitolas – each skewed toward a larger ring gauge.
First up, the Ghost will add the Spooky. This will be a 4 x 60 figurado priced at $7.00. Meanwhile the Phantom will add a 5 x 58 Figurado with an SRP of $8.00. Consistent with the rest of the Gurkha Ghost line, the Spooky and Phantom will be packaged in 21 count boxes. While the line’s other figurado, the Angel is packaged in tubes, the Spooky and Phanton will not use tube packaging.
The Gurkha Ghost line was unveiled at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show. The addition of the Spooky and Phantom are the first line extensions since the release of the Gurkha Envy. The line now has seven offerings.
