Gurkha Cigars in Canada: Review, Price and Quality

Terry Pomerantz nudges us to find out more about Gurkha cigars. “Gurkha cigars are not as well-known as Montecristo or Davidoff cigars, but some Gurkha cigars are quite affordable. However, other editions like the Gurkha Maharaja could very well find their spot on the very prestigious Most Expensive Cigars in the World list.”

A History of Gurkha cigars

Under the British Empire, Gurkhas were Nepali soldiers who were hired by Her Majesty’s army. They fought heroically for the British everywhere around the world. Gurkhas used to roll their cigars with the tobacco they found in the colonies where they were posted.

In 1989, Kaizad Hansotia re-launched the brand which –although very well-known among the best of the best- was far from having conquered the market like it has today, with its 105 brands.

Gurkha cigars: Terry’s opinion

Terry Pomerantz says, without hesitation: “Gurkha Premium cigars and some of the Gurkha Special Editions compare favorably to the best Cuban cigars. All Gurkha cigars are very good. Even the less expensive Gurkha cigars offer an excellent price-quality ratio.”
