How huge fan and connoisseurs of cigars you should be to pay $2,000 for one piece? Yes, you read it correct. One cigar shall cost you two thousand US dollars. Gurkha Cigars has released ultra-premium offering known as a the Maharaja. For this cigar, it is raising the bar on “most expensive cigar”. While Gurkha’s original super premium luxury cigar the ‘His Majesty’s Reserve’ is infused with Remy’s Louis XIII Cognac at $2,400 a bottle, the ‘Maharaja’ is not infused. It is, however, a secret blend of the best quality tobaccos available. The beautiful maduro wrapper pairs Dominican binder and fillers to create a smooth and sweet taste on the lips.
To be enjoyed by true cigar connoisseurs, the Gurkha Maharaja is medium bodied and one of a kind. It retails for $2,000 a stick.
The limited edition ‘Maharaja’ has set a new precedent for premium tobacco,” Kaizad Hansotia, founder and CEO of Gurkha Cigars, had said last year. “We’re excited to be able to pair these rare leaves in such a magnificent and flavorful way. It’s been a while since our first release of the ‘His Majesty’s Reserve’ in 1996 and we know this new luxury cigar will set a new standard for an exclusively luxurious smoke to become the ‘king’ of all cigars.”
