Hansotia has introduced Black Dragon Edicion Especial, priced astronomically at $115,000 per box of 100 cigars. In 1989, Kaizad Hansotia purchased the century-old Gurkha luxury cigar brand, rescuing it from obscurity. Says the CEO of Miami-based Beach Cigar Group, “I set out to establish Gurkha as the world’s first superpremium cigar at $15, though it was during the doldrums pre-dating the cigar boom. “In 1996, our ‘HMR’ (His Majesty’s Reserve) became the world’s most expensive production cigar. The 7-1/2" x 52 cigars are flavored by the infusion of the vapors of exquisite $1,200-a-bottle Louis XIII French cognac. Now at $15,000 a box of 20 cigars its limited annual production of only 30 boxes is snapped up by heads of state, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, Hollywood’s elite, and discriminating cigar aficionados. ” Now, Hansotia has trumped the HMR, rocking the world of cigars and opulent living with his most ambitious offering yet. Featured in the latest issue of The Robb Report, the American magazine of ultra-extravagance, Hansotia has introduced Black Dragon Edicion Especial, priced astronomically at $115,000 per box of 100 cigars. As if this price were not exclusive enough, Hansotia is only offering 5 boxes, and only as part of The Robb Report’s annual “Ultimate Gift Guide,” with no additional production planned. Its quality and unique presentation are equal to its romance. Black Dragon is hand-crafted by the Gurkha factory in Honduras, using African Cameroon, Dominican, and Connecticut tobaccos. They are extra-aged for 12-15 years, to create a smoothness and sophistication, rare in even superpremium cigars. The richly powerful flavor of these 7-1/2" x 52 dark maduro cigars includes subtle and exquisite spicy notes. Gurkha cigars are noted for their imaginative presentations, and Black Dragon is no different. According to Hansotia, the stunning presentation box is hand-crafted in India from intricately carved camel bone, which takes on a distressed patina with its 80-year age. Solid brass furniture is the final touch of elegance. Black Dragon’s unheard-of $1,150-a-cigar price and extreme scarcity should certainly open five pocketbooks. For us mere mortals, however, he says top-quality, highly-rated Gurkha cigars are available for as little as $12.95 retail.
