Gurkha Pan American
Gurkha Pan American cigars are somewhat Kaizad Hansotia’s way of paying tribute to early America when railway travel was common and times were simpler. The packaging is quite appealing, with the box resembling a vintage trunk used for steamship travel in the early 1900s. Regardless of what the mad scientist was thinking when he named this blend, it is one heck of a cigar. Produced down in Nicaragua using Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos and a gleaming Ecuador Connecticut wrapper leaf, Pan American is a mild-medium connoisseur-level cigar made to impress discriminating fans of milder cigars that stay flavorful and complex while smoking easy and cool. Pan American is quite classic, in fact, in that it does not put much emphasis on raw strength, but rather the intricate blending skills of Mr. Hansotia and the folks at Gurkha are clearly displayed in a well-balanced, easy-smoking package.
