Cigar Aficionado 10 Best Cigars of the year (for 2013) just named Gurkha 125th Anniversary at the No.9 position, Here is what the editors of CA magazine say abouth the Gurkha 125th:
"The new cigars (from Gurkha) have done well in our blind taste tests, none better than the Gurkha 125th Anniversary XO.
Made at the standout PDR Factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, this cigar impressed us again and again in our tests. It has a lovely flavor of dried orange peel, some leather and cedar, and is a balanced smoke with no shortage of elegance.
Brand owner Kaizad Hansotia dates the origin of the Gurkha name on cigars back 125 years; he bought the brand rights in the 1980s and brought Gurkhas to the United States in the 1990s. This is the first time one of his cigars has placed in our Top 25, and the best score we’ve ever given a Gurkha."
