Gurkha, Testosterone Infused by: Tom Halladay
At the height of British Rule in India, colonial soldiers began to make their own cigars from the local tobacco. The British military held the mountain fighters, known as Gurkhas, in high regard as fierce and loyal. The fondness of the British for these legendary Nepalese fighters inspired them to name these cigars “Gurkhas.” The “Gurkha” created more than a century ago has been reborn by K. Hansotia & Co. and proudly presented at Spirits at the Shops of Lake Tuscaloosa.
Allow me to recommend a couple of favored cigar designed to separate the men from the Gurkhas.
The Ancient Reserve is a full-bodied Nicaraguan Puro for 12 years with hints of fruits, spices, and the aroma of sweet cinnamon and cocoa. Our robusto size Ancient Reserve goes for $8.95.
The Gurkha Assassin, hand made in Honduras truly lives up to it’s name. It will not take any prisoners. Gurkha’s first true full-bodied cigar will test your palate and your fill. The Brazilian wrapper, Dominican binder, and Nicaraguan Peruvian filler combine to create the perfect smoke after a long day of battle and mayhem. The Assassin torpedo goes for $9.95 at Spirits.
The Ancient Gurkha motto “It is better to die brave than live as a coward” applies well to these cigars. So man-up and try a Gurkha. As Bob Davis would say “you’ll thank your bad self.”
