Legacy blends from Gurkha tends to disappear as often as two more show up to take its place, but the Gurkha Crest cigar has aged gracefully into one of the brand’s top selling frontmarks. Released by K. Hansotia in 2008, this medium strength yet full bodied smoke is loaded with everything the discriminating enthusiast has been hunting whether they realize it or not. There’s the sultry Connecticut Broadleaf that covers each stick, truly a shining beacon of quality and class. Premium longleaf tobaccos from Nicaragua lurk just below the surface, ready to fire off a volley of deliciousness straight to the eager palate. Add to this a price that’s tough to beat, from a brand known for high MSRPs no less, and we’ve got a winner.
