When it comes to beautiful, ornate packaging, Kaizad Hansotia of Gurkha Cigars is king, but he also knows what people are looking for. One way to deliver a great value in a top-shelf cigar is to ditch the fancy box so the bulk of the cost is in the cigar itself, and that's exactly what Kaizad did with Gurkha Avenger G5.
By eliminating boxes and offering these dark and tasty morsels in bundles of 20, and making them in only two popular shapes, Gurkha was able to concentrate on putting together great tobaccos for Gurkha Avenger G5 while avoiding a sky-high price. The core is a collection of lively Nicaraguan long-fillers, and the binder is Habano. Then it's clad in a dark Connecticut Broadleaf Oscuro wrapper that foretells the flavor profile of espresso, cocoa, and leather with a nice dose of pepper. So you get a great-tasting premium cigar and you don't have another empty cigar box to throw in the pile in your garage. Sounds like a win-win to me.
