Gurkha Empire is Kaizad Hansotia's masterstroke.
This guy has created some gems in the past, as many of you fine gents can attest to. But Gurkha Empire might exceed them all. Here's why, in four easy steps:
There are six different blends in the Gurkha Empire Series. Each one is, without exaggeration, utterly fantastic in its own right. From the mellow, chocolatey Empire III blend to the toasty-sweet complexity of Empire I to the orotund, meaty, roasted entree that is Empire VI....and everything in between.Size.
Each is a stout 5.5"x52 vitola, a generous size with a thick barrel that delivers the full range of flavor intended from each blend.Eye Candy.
Yes, I realize to some folks packaging is about as useless as a graverobber in a crematorium. But these beauts become downright sublime all decked out in the shiny Gurkha boxes and slick, colorful double bands.
Any dumbass can make a great cigar if price is no object. It takes a special brand of dumbass to deliver it to your door, all wrapped up in a tidy package with bow, at a killer price. And being that kind of dumbass is one of my specialties.
If this deal doesn't get your blood up, my first recommendation is to check thy pulse because you may be dead. Secondly it would break my heart, Fredo, thus I might have to remove you from our junk mail list and send you out on the proverbial dinghy. (Wait, I didn't mean that. I got caught up in the moment. I'll keep sending you junk mail even whether you want it or not.)
