Many years in the making, the super-premium Gurkha Cellar Reserve line has finally arrived. The master blenders at K. Hansotia & Co. have taken the time to display their passion for the leaf with four extraordinary luxury blends.
The Gurkha Cellar Reserve 15 is a fantastic smoke that really displays the beauty of its vintage tobaccos, the 15-year-old Criollo 98 wrapper covering this exquisite blend is deep brown in color, oily and delicious. A slow methodical burn reveals ultra-smooth flavors of oak, leather, almond, earth, and a smoky sweet bouquet backed by a medium to full body persona. The cigars comes presented in a beautiful black and gold wooden box with a matching band proudly displaying “15” the number of years the all-Dominican tobaccos have been aged.
Limited to 1000 boxes per size, the Gurkha Cellar Reserve Edicion Especial comes dressed in a seamless, silky smooth Corojo wrapper with Dominican filler and binder tobaccos aged for 18 years. Stunningly boxed and banded, a lovely sweet aroma delivers enticing notes of cinnamon, black pepper, nuts, and cedar.
Platinum is the first in the The Gurkha Cellar Reserve franchise to employ the use of Nicaraguan tobaccos for the binder and fillers. These hand-selected leaves are all aged up to 12 years and come from the famous growing regions of Condega, Estelí, and Jalapa. The blend is finished in a beautiful Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper. The result is a rich and complex smoke that showers the palate with medium to full body notes of dark chocolate, espresso, sweet spice, and cashew.
The Gurkha Cellar Reserve Limitada brings to the table a rare Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper that is very dark, oily, and silky to the feel.This extraordinary leaf adds a bold, rich sweetness to the original Cellar Reserve blend. The binder is comprised of Dominican Olor leaf, and the filler comes from 15-year old Dominican Tobacco. This medium to full-flavored smoke produces a creamy sweet aroma while delivering savory notes of chocolate, spice, black cherry, and raisins.
The Cellar Reserve are some of the rarest, and best smokes that Gurkha has to offer, so be sure to order yours online from JR Cigar before these limited edition gems are all gone.
