The Assassin line comes in five sizes and is sure to assassinate your palate, as it is one of the strongest offerings from Gurkha. The Ancient Reserve line comes in four sizes and should appease fans of Nicaraguan puros. The Red Dragon line is a Churchill-only offering that is a follow-up to the highly popular Black Dragon released in 2007. If you are man enough and want something with a kick, the Dragon Fury line should be right up your alley with its full-bodied profile. The Black Dragon Tubo is a limited offering at only 300 boxes per year that features aged tobacco from Cameroon and the Dominican Republic. The Elegance line is yet another special edition from Gurkha, with only 800 boxes per year in production that features a seven year old aged Connecticut wrapper.

Moving along, we see the Regent line, which comes in four sizes and offers a complex blend of a Havana 2000 wrapper and tobaccos from Indonesia, Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. The Triad Natural and Triad Platinum lines feature aged tobaccos that come in a super exclusive box of which only 300 total units each were produced. The Evil line is appropriately named, as its strength is so abundant that you would think it was a creation from the Devil himself. This line is also one of the more highly rated lines from Gurkha, and it comes in five different sizes. If you enjoy limited editions, then the Archive 1887 line is for you, as it only had 1,000 boxes produced and was offered in three sizes.

Perhaps the coolest box award goes to the Titan line, which comes in a box made of aircraft-grade aluminum. The list of different lines goes on and on from Gurkha, with such exotic offerings such as the G3, the Warlord, the Genghis Khan, the Symphony, the Monogram, the Havana Legend, and more. Each of their lines has its own interesting combination of tobacco, and many are limited in production, adding to the overall aura of exclusivity of the brand. Best of all, once you are done with the cigars, you will most likely want to keep the boxes as souvenirs, as they are quite a sight to behold.

I hope you enjoyed my peek into the flamboyant brand of cigars known as Gurkha. See you next time!

I am happy to hear of this bit ourkhaf history as I have enjoyed Gurka's cigars, but, have always been a little spooked as to the label image and it's origin. It now makes me feel better to light 'em up. ;-)

I know I have certainly provided Kaizad Hansotia his investment back, over and over and over and... :D

I have not had any of the ultra high end sticks that were discussed, here, but, one of my favorites from Gurka is the Beast. The Beast has a bit of a premium cost over other average priced Gurkas, but I'll enjoy that larger stick over an entire little league baseball game, including the travel time. :-)

I'm smoking my first Gurkha, a gift, as I type. Wow! The first full bodied cigar without overwhelming pepper, very smooth. The only problem is that the band only says "Gurkha" without any other designation. It is red with gold. The soldier is all gold. What Gurkha am I smoking?
