A nod to 20 years of success
A 2010 release, the Gurkha Archive was a hats off and congratulations to K. Hansotia for 20 years of delectable handmades. Flourishing for 20 years in the cigar business is no easy feat. Many great brands have risen to fame, only to witness their own demise shortly thereafter. Well, Gurkha has thrived for over two decades now, and is still pumping out top shelf blends to this day.
The Archive took two full years and countless blending and re-blending to finally develop. This gorgeous, milky-brown cigar comes draped in a silky smooth 6-year aged Connecticut Maduro wrapper. Bursting from its core are Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers accompanied by a genuine Cameroon binder. Expect an eventful, medium to full-bodied bouquet intertwined by notes of spice, coffee, sweet tobacco, and nuts finished by a toasty crescendo. Box-pressed and primed for the ultimate experience, the Archive exemplifies Gurkha’s rich cigar-making history.
Good news, Gurkha Archive has received a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting: “creamy, woody flavors balanced by cocoa powder and spice.”
