At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, Gurkha Cigars will unveil Marquesa. This is a cigar that is meant to have a vintage Cuban look and flavor profile.

The blend to the Gurkha Marquesa features a Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder. The fillers are Nicaraguan tobaccos from the Estelí and Ometepe regions. Marquesa will be available in three sizes – in both a rounded and box-pressed format. Each size is presented in 20-count boxes – containing ten rounded and ten box-pressed cigars. A press release from Gurkha indicated that the IPCPR 2018 releases were remastered from predicate (grandfathered) blends.

Gurkha expects to ship the Marquesa in the August timeframe.
