At the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Gurkha Cigar Group International will launch a line known as Pure Evil.

Pure Evil was blended by Damian Tapanes at his factory, American Caribbean Cigars. The blend features a Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigars are being released in three sizes: Robusto, Toro, and 6 x 60. Each is presented in 20-count boxes.

The Pure Evil band boasts a holographic skull punctured with one shot in front of a blood-red foil spade. The box is adorned with the same emblem over a silver foil.

“This brand was released on a limited basis in 2006. Damian has had the blend tucked away and we tasted it again while visiting the factory in Nicaragua. We were happy to bring back the old favorite,” comments Juan Lopez, Vice President of Sales in a press release, and “The cigar has hints of earth and spice with a smooth, clean finish.”
