Gurkha Cigars were long noted for their pomp and circumstance—humidors carved out of camel bone, cigars infused with fine cognac, cigars that cost thousands of dollars, and cigars with pre-embargo tobacco inside them, among other extravagancies. For a time, that was what Gurkha was known for, but in the early 2000's they started to create lines for the everyday smoker. Focusing on brick and mortar retail shops and quality blends, Gurkha's lines now embody a very different presence than when they were initially founded.
The Gurkha Havana Legend is a throwback to 1999, the year that the cigar was first introduced in small batches. The revived Havana Legend introduces the perfect reflection of Gurkha's past and present coming together. The wrapper is a rare-vintage Habano leaf that provides a medium body, medium strength smoking experience. The binder is from the Dominican and the fillers are Dominican and Nicaraguan. The Havana Legend is a creamy smoking experience with a peppery finish. A smoker of this cigar will get flavor notes of barnyard hay, cabinet spices, coffee, cocoa, and even orange zest.
