gurkhagurkha cigars story in miami herald

Going up in cigar smoke can be a good thing

A sharp eye for a good cigar and an investment of less than $150 has Miami man puffing on success.

Sure it's a cliché, but to Kaizad Hansotia, a smoke is not just a smoke, regardless of what non-lovers of tobacco say.

Nineteen years ago, Hansotia, a Miami-based entrepreneur, wasn't so sure.

But then, while on vacation in his native India, Hansotia stumbled across a cigar called Gurkha, named for the legendary Nepalese colonial soldiers who fought during Britain's rule of India.

He tried a couple and liked what he smoked. So he bought the brand -- for less than $150. That was because a Gurkha, while tasty, fans say, was unfairly receiving little more consideration by cigar aficionados than a convenience mart Swisher Sweet.

Today, Gurkha cigars are considered a Rolls-Royce of smokes, according to the 2008 Robb Report.
