Gurkha Cigars, known for producing the world’s most expensive cigars, just launched a military-inspired Sniper Cigar and Case that includes a custom-made knife and challenge coin to pay tribute to the service and sacrifices of America’s military.

Named for the brave soldiers of Nepal who fought valiantly alongside the British, Gurkha’s new product pays homage not only to the company’slong-standing heritage of saluting our elite Special Operatives, but also its unparalleled commitment to making some of the finest cigars in the world.

Gurkha is the celebratory cigar of the United States Green Berets, Delta Force, Rangers, Air Force Special Ops, Marine Force Recon and the Navy SEALs, including the legendary SEAL Team Six.Gurkha cigars are unwrapped and enjoyed after battles are won in countries all over the world wherever American Forces are deployed.

Paying tribute to these exclusive warriors, Gurkha has designed a limited-edition cigar called Sniper and encased them in a near-impenetrable black Sniper Case cigar box.

The Sniper cigar is a medium-to full-bodied cigar with a Dominican wrapper, Indonesian binder and Dominican/Nicaraguan filler. It’s 7.5 inches long with ring gauge of 52. It is sold 20 to a box for $250. 

The Sniper cigar box is a handsome Pelican-style, waterproof cigar case that has three layers of protective foam inside. It holdstwo layers of 10 cigars each, cushioned in between three layers of foam. This extremely durable case also includes a limited edition combat knife wrapped in its own protective sheath. It’s not only a cigar box, but a travel humidor too.

“The Snipercigarswere made for the brave men and women who serve and sacrifice selflessly,” said CEO KaizadHansotia. “Gurkha is proud to be part of America’s great military efforts. Therefore, we created a special cigar to properly recognize and commemorate the incredible job our military does, which is oftentimes unrecognized, occurring undercover and in the shadows. We also wanted to create something that represented a little piece of home that our soldiers can take with them and enjoyremaining safe on their journey. It’s a little reminder of the freedoms we have and our way of life that we are all fighting to preserve.”
