A dark, delicious Gurkha for you to sink your teeth into.
To bear the name of Genghis Khan is a heavy burden, one that can only be endured by the finest of brands. Gurkha is a mighty fine brand with a more than impressive track record filled with pricey, prestigious, heavily sought blends, of which 90+ ratings have become commonplace. Known as the "Rolls Royce of Cigars", the Gurkha brand employs the world's finest tobaccos to create some of the industry's most exquisite premium cigars. Quality will never be sacrificed for price, and Gurkha cigars are worth every penny, and then some.
Genghis Khan is yet another example of Gurkha's expertise in uniqueness and craftsmanship. The Costa Rican maduro leaf used to complete this cigar is simply gorgeous. Aside from being one of the hardest leaves on the planet to harvest, let alone one of the most expensive, it delivers an assortment of rich, slightly sweet flavors and promotes a super-slow burn. The hearty blend of aged Dominican and Honduran tobaccos combine with rare leaves from India and Africa to create an array of smooth, earthy notes backed by subtle hints of pepper. A medium-bodied delight to be savored, courtesy of one of the finest brands in the business.
'The Khan' is an alluring, 7.5" x 52 Churchill size that's masterfully blended and guarantees a satisfying and enjoyable smoking experience. Such a masterpiece can only be presented as such. Packaged in a gloriously attractive dome chest that Genghis Khan himself would be proud to own. A big, bulky antique style, humidor quality dome that will sufficiently store 30 nicely proportioned churchills, complete with a lift-out tray that reveals a lower compartment for additional cigar or accessory storage. Once again, the folks behind Gurkha have outdone themselves with this piece.
“I just smoked the Genghis Khan that I received in my Cigar-of-the-month club. What a cigar! I haven't tried the Centurian yet, but this one is my second favorite Ghurka (after the Master's Select). Slightly spicy and just a hint of sweetness. Smooth and creamy down to the nub.
Great pick this month CI dudes!”

“I bought one of these (Genghis Khan) big jobs during a recent visit to the new CI retail store. Frankly, I was expecting more! I had to keep at the thing to make it burn evenly, the ash was not very strong and quite flakey. The appearance is slightly 'rough' looking, but that often appeals to me...looked like a cigar! On the plus side, the burn is slow, the smoke cool and very pleasant. Will I pay $10 for another one? Not likely.”

“The Genghis Khan was by far the greatest cigar I have ever smoked. It had a very satisfying medium body and an overall great flavor. This single cigar kept going for over an hour and a half while sitting around a fire with my friends. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to just sit down and savor their smoke.”
“Is a toss up whether I like the Grukha Genghis Khan or 125th XO Maduro better. Overall, two of my favorite cigars. The Genghis burns even, has a good amount of smoke and is a medium to full flavor. I was finally able to order a full box given they are often out of stock. While they may not be for everyone, I really enjoy them.”

“Wow! Nice cigar box and very nice smoke. Enjoyed one in a snowstorm sitting in my wood shop in front of a fire. it was great. Got a chest for my son-in-law who is coming back from Afghanistan. Can't wait! Thanks, CI.
