Those who decide to visit the lavish inn chain known as the Ritz-Carlton will now have a one of a kind opportunity to appreciate the world’s most costly cigar, the His Majesty’s Reserve by Gurkha Cigars now on location at Ritz-Carlton hotels across the nation.
Beginning with the Ritz-Carlton a coastal spa and golf resort in Half Moon Bay, California, the extremely restrictive $2,000 stogies will now be sold via Fumar Cigars, the industry pioneer for top of the line luxury cigar programs. Making it even rarer is the limited availability to obtain these amazing Gurkha cigars as they’re only produced at 75 boxes per year.
The Gurkha His Majesty’s Reserve is famous not only for its unique price point, but also for it’s one of a kind aroma and taste that when combined make it a very special cigar. The blend is one of a 15 year aged Connecticut Maduro wrapper with 12-year-old Dominican binder. The filler is then aged with one full shot of one of the world’s finest cognac: Remy Martin Louis Xlll is a blend of 1,200 eaux-de-vie from the exquisite Champagne region of France, aged from 40 to 100 years in oak barrels that are themselves several hundred years old. A bottle of Louis XIII Cognac by itself sells for $2,400. There are many reasons why Gurkha cigars are known worldwide to be the Rolls Royce of Cigars and now the His Majesty’ Reserve can be smoked exclusively at Ritz Carlton hotels throughout the U.S.
“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.”
Immersed in legend and a steep, rich history Gurkha Cigars were initially named after the Nepalese warriors whose intense bravery impressed the British soldiers. The company was bought by Kaizad Hansotia in 1989 initially to give customers of their family watch business a free cigar as a gift. As a result the company was born again and quickly became one of the most famous brands of luxury cigars worldwide. From Bill Gates to Bill Clinton, Carlos Slim and a myriad of global dignitaries, world leaders, celebrities, government officials including the USA Special Forces and Navy Seal Team are all endorsed clients. Gurkha cigars consist of a remarkable quality of premium blends of tobacco that matches a reputation for unrivaled excellence producing over 8 million cigars per year. Gurkha cigars are sold in 50 different countries worldwide.
