Guests of the luxury hotel chain Ritz-Carlton now have the unique ability to enjoy the world’s most expensive cigar, the His Majesty’s Reserve by Gurkha Cigars, on site at Ritz-Carlton’s nationwide.
Starting with the Ritz-Carton in Half Moon Bay, California, through Fumar Cigars, the industry leader in high-end on-premise cigar programs, the very exclusive $2,000 cigars will now be sold. Making it even rarer is the fact that the cigars are produced in a very limited edition -- only 75 boxes are made annually.
The Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve is a very special cigar. Famous not only for its unique price point, it also has an incredibly distinctive aroma and taste. It’s a blend of 15-year-aged Connecticut Maduro wrapper with 12-year-old Dominican binder and filler that’s aged with one full shot of the world’s finest cognac: Remy Martin’s Louis XIII. Louis XIII Cognac is a blend of 1,200 eaux de vie from the Champagne region of France, aged between 40 and 100 years old in oak barrels that are several hundred years old as well. Louis XIII Cognac alone sells for about $2,400 a bottle.
“With the His Majesty’s Reserve, Gurkha has set the standard for super-premium luxury cigars,” said Gurkha Founder and CEO Kaizad Hansotia. “They’re super sexy cigars. A cigar to smoke only for those who not only expect excellence but demand that standard of quality every time. The amazing taste and aroma of Gurkha’s His Majesty’s Reserve are something that you will never forget.”
And now the His Majesty’ Reserve, one of the many reasons Gurkha’s are known throughout the world as the Rolls Royce of Cigars, can be enjoyed at Ritz-Carlton’s throughout the U.S.
