Gurkha Cigars: Bourbon Collection

unspecifiedFall is a beautiful time to enjoy a cigar outside because the nights are cooler, and bourbon pairs perfectly! Gurkha recently launched a new Bourbon Collection of cigars paired with Kentucky’s own Hartfield and Company’s Bourbon.

They say there is nothing better than enjoying a great cigar with a rich, well-developed bourbon and that’s exactly why Gurkha Cigars are a great match. This well known cigar brand has now partnered with Kentucky’s own small-batch, craft bourbon distillery, Hartfield & Company, to create the new handcrafted “Bourbon Collection.”

“The new Gurkha “Bourbon Collection” comes in two sizes. The Churchill, crafted with a Maduro Wrapper, is 7 x 47 with an MSRP of $12. The Toro, crafted with a Natural Wrapper, is a 6.5 x 52 with an MSRP of $10. Balanced and complex, these medium-bodied, bourbon-infused cigars will keep you savoring the richness until the very last puff.” – Gurkha.com

unspecified-2The smoothness of this bourbon really pairs well with tobacco notes, and pairing it with a cigar is just an added bonus! Some of my favorite bourbons to pair with this cigar are: Bulleit Bourbon, George Dickel Tennessee Whisky No. 12, Crown Royal Deluxe, and Bulleit Rye

Gurkha cigars can be found at many fine cigar stores around the U.S. I am a fan of many from the Gurkha collection, and almost always enjoy a Heritage, however now with this new partnership… I have another new Gurkha cigar to love. Please pair responsibly!
