ABOUTGurkha Genghis Khan
Mention “Genghis Khan” and there is a mental image of wild horsemen thundering across the steppes, bent on chaos and destruction. There is a sense of unbridled power in the name.
The Gurkha Genghis Khan, while a rich and powerful cigar, will not pillage your palate. On the contrary, this is a smoke that reminds the aficionado of mahogany-paneled social clubs, satin smoking jackets, and refined behavior.
Expertly hand rolled in the Dominican Republic where all the Gurkhas are produced, the Genghis Khan is in a class by itself. It sports a very fine Costa Rican Maduro wrapper, finicky to grow and harvest. This prima donna leaf surrounds a magnificent blend of Cameroon and Indian fillers. Needless to say, all leaves receive special care during the extended fermentation process needed to yield tobacco of this caliber.
How can a cigar be earthy and peppery, yet creamy at the same time? Only by smoking a Gurkha Genghis Khan will you understand this combination. It is complex, rich, heavy, robust, and yet sweet-natured.
Because the component leaves are so rare and expensive, only a thousand of these jewels were made in 2007. They are fast becoming collectors’ items. Just like some of the other very rare Gurkhas, this is one you need to buy and keep. Just put the money down, walk away with the cigars, and don’t count the cost, which is surprisingly modest for a cigar of this rarity.
Save the Gurkha Genghis Khan for a very special occasion to impress a very special friend. Break out your best Scotch and bring out your best crystal highball glasses. This is going to be an event.
