Gurkha Cigar Group International announces the Gurkha Ghost Connecticut and Grand Age II box to be showcased at this week’s TPE in Las Vegas.
The Gurkha Ghost Connecticut is an extension to the existing Ghost line and will be available in the 5 x 52 Shadow, the 6 x 54 Asura and the 6 x 60 Exorcist. The cigars will retail for $8 to $10.50 and feature an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Mexican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and the U.S. The cigar is produced and set to ship after the orders are placed at the TPE. The Gurkha Ghost Connecticut will be available to consumers for the first time at The Great Smoke in West Palm Beach next month.
The Grand Age II is a treasure-chest style wooden box housing 60 cigars: 20 Connecticut wrapped, 20 Habano wrapped, and 20 Maduro wrapped. Each cigar is a 6 x 54 Toro and retails for $6.50. The cigar will ship to retailers in the spring.
“The Grand Age II is a fun project we’ve been developing over the past few months,” Jim Colucci, President and CEO of Gurkha Cigars, said in a press release. “We discovered an allotment of Grand Age boxes in our factories and decided we wanted to do something special with them, bringing a new spin on a favorite Gurkha packaging. We developed an insert to house three different toro size cigars in one master box. We’re partnering with a new factory and we just loved the blend so we decided to showcase it in this manner and bring it to consumers.”
