“Our Gurkha cigars… have set the record for the world’s most sought-after and expensive cigars,” says Hansotia. “The Signature Collection approaches that standard of excellence and desirability. It was almost four years in development, and was not ready to go to market until we discovered the choice of tobaccos available.”
The tobaccos the company sourced for the cigar include a fermented maduro Connecticut shade wrapper aged a full seven years, complemented by top-grade Dominican filler and a Nicaraguan binder. The Signature Collection is available in 7 x 48 Churchill only. The presentation features a collectible solid red mahogany canister, accented with brass inlays. It holds seventeen cigars, and the suggested retail price per box is $380. Beach Cigar Group is introducing the cigars in their booth at RTDA 2004, and shipping immediately thereafter.
