At the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show, Gurkha Cigars will launch a new offering intended to satisfy those cigar enthusiasts looking for a mild to medium known as the Gurkha Real.
The Gurkha Real is made at Tabacalera Las Lavas in the Dominican Republic. It consists of an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Dominican Olor binder and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It will come in four sizes (Robusto, Toro, Magnum, and Churchill) with each size presented in 20-count boxes. Gurkha says the cigar is based off a predicate blend.
