At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, Gurkha Cigars will re-launch its Blendmaster’s Cask line. This is a line that first showcased at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
Eddy Guerra, Marketing Manager for Gurkha, has said the Blendmaster’s Cask will undergo some packaging changes. The blend consists of an Ecuadorian wrapper over Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos.
The Blendmaster’s Cask will now be available in five frontmarks. Three of the frontmarks will be 5-pack Tubos while the other two will be 20-count boxes.
Blendmaster’s Cask started out as an offshoot of the 2016 Gurkha Malt Collection release. The Gurkha Malt Collection consists of five different blends meant to be paired with a spirit. While the Malt Collection was being developed, Gurkha made the decision to release another cigar that could also be paired with a spirit as a standalone release outside the Malt Collection, thus the Gurkha Blendmaster’s Cask was born. The revamped Gurkha Blendmaster’s Cask is expected to ship to retailers in September.
