To reflect the SEALs theme, each set of 20 cigars comes in a waterproof pelican style case that looks like something out of a military flick. Inside the case is plenty of foam padding, as well as a large, intimidating knife. I pity the fool that tries to hijack a SEAL's cigars, especially if he has that knife at his disposal. Some might see all of this packaging as excessive, but it is a victory cigar, so it should stand up to the elements if they decide to bring one along for the ride after a mission.

In terms of the cigars themselves, a pre-existing blend made in the Dominican Republic was tweaked to create the final product. As one would expect, they are full-bodied with a ton of strength to match the men that they were made for.

If you are feeling a bit envious, are not a SEAL, and bummed that you won't be able to get your hands on one of these special sticks, do not fret. Gurkha plans to unveil a similar line for public consumption at the upcoming IPCPR show this August in New Orleans. The line will be appropriately called SpecOps, and will exhibit similar strength to the SEALs edition. It will also come in similar packaging, knife and all. The SpecOps line won't have the same aura of invincibility as the SEALs one, but it should at the very least be another great cigar from Gurkha.

Don Pepin La Reloba


The Garcia family, headed by the legendary Don Pepin, is no stranger to producing quality cigars. Quite often, the word quality is accompanied by a hefty price tag. Luckily, with the semi-recent release of the La Reloba line, that is not the case.

The La Reloba line was released to give smokers' wallets a bit of a break without having to sacrifice quality and great flavor. The line comes in your choice of two different Nicaraguan wrappers: either a Habano 2000 or a Sumatran. Both versions are medium-bodied. The Habano 2000 offers up notes of nuts, while the Sumatran features hints of cream, leather, and cedar. Each wrapper style is comes in four different sizes: the 5 x 46 Corona, the 5 x 50 Robusto, the 6 x 52 Torpedo, and the 6 1/4x 52 Toro. Prices range from around $4.50 to $6.50 per single, depending on the size. That is not bad at all, especially for a premium cigar. You can also look for these in packs of five or boxes of 25.
