DESCRIPTION: Working in close collaboration with the Tabacos Don Leoncio factory in the Dominican Republic, the 125th Anniversary blend features a Brazilian Cubra Habano wrapper that is accompanied by an Ecuadorian Habano binder and a combination of Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Dominican fillers.
The Gurkha 125th Anniversary is available in 20 count boxes with a SRP ranging from $8.39-$10.99 per stick. The anniversary stick comes in four vitolas: a 6 x 54 Rothchild, a 6 ½ x 54 Torpedo, a 6 x 60 XO and the cigar I’m featuring today, the 5-inch x 52 ring gauge Robusto.
FEATURED LIBATION: Macallan 18-Year Single Malt Scotch
The Macallan 18 yr is a Highland single malt scotch whiskey that has been distilled at Macallan’s Speyside distillery in Scotland. This legendary Single malt is carefully matured for a minimum of 18 years in oak barrels that have previously held Sherry from Jerez, Spain. It’s the Sherry character that is imparted through the saturated oak staves that gives this scotch a luscious and aromatic character.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: Undercrown Gran Toro by Drew Estate
