First Wednesday Contest featuring a Gurkha IPCPR Toro Sampler

Gurkha SamplerIt’s the first Wednesday of the month, so it’s Contest time! This month’s giveaway is a six-pack of Gurkha cigars from the IPCPR show, the IPCPR Toro Sampler. There are six cigars in this sampler, one each of the Gurkha Heritage in a 6½” x 52 size with a Ecuador Habano Rodado Wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Pennsylvania, a Cellar Reserve Platinum in the Hedonism size, 6″ x 58 with an Ecuador wrapper and binder and fillers from Nicaragua, The Cask Blend in a 6″ x 58 Gran Robusto size (like the Platinum, a perfecto) with a proprietary wrapper, binder and filler, a Royal Challenge Maduro, the only true toro in the bunch at 6″ x 50 with a Broadleaf wrapper, a double binder of Habano and Honduran and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, the Cellar Reserve Edicion Especial, again in the 6″ x 58 Hedonism perfecto size with a Corojo wrapper, Dominican Olor  binder and 18 year aged Dominican filler, and finally the Classic Cigar: Havana Blend from the East India line in a 6″ x 54 size with a San Andres wrapper and a proprietary blend for the binder and fillers.  These are packed in a bright orange box.


You know the rules, leave a comment here for a chance to win. I’ll select a winner at random next Wednesday, October 14, 2015.  By my figuring, Sean Kevin Conroy, Matt Wells and Dan Colley are ineligible because they won contests in the last six months.  Must be 18 years old to enter.  Thanks to the folks at Gurkha for supplying this month’s prize!


That’s it, until the next time!

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a Gurkha.

  14. Haven’t smoked a whole lotta’ Gurkhas, so this would be perfect for me!!!

  15. George

    Gurkha samples. Yes please

  16. Amazing prize! Love Gurkhas!!!!!!

  17. Tim Brannon

    When I started smoking cigars about 10 years ago Gurkhas were one of my favorite smokes. Then I purchased some from an online seller and they were awful. I haven’t smoked one since my disappointing purchase. I am sure if Craig is offering these Gurkahs as part of his monthly contest they are excellent! Looking forward to the opportunity to renew my initial love for Gurkhas!

  18. I can’t remember the last Gurkha I had smoked. I think it was a Black Dragon I bought as part of a sampler pack from CI. I may even have one or two hidden in my humidors. Still, it would be nice to acquire these…

  19. Tommy D

    Those look great – thanks Craig and Gurkha

  20. Gurkha yes I will take them off your hands! My address is ……….

  21. Texican8

  27. I see a lot of people complain about Gurhka’s I myself have never had a bad Gurkha and happen to enjoy them. Thank you Craig and good luck everyone.

  28. And heeere we go! Smoke Em if you got Em!

  29. Zeegarboy

    Just read an article in CA all about Gurkha and its owner – some of the most expensive cigars made. I would love to give em a try. Thanks for the contest!

  30. Joel Scott

    Nicely presented and explained! Gurkha seemed to get a bad rap from many cigar podcasts years ago. I’ve always enjoyed them and thought they were a very good product. I really enjoy the Red Witch line.

  31. Freakboy791

    I’m out of cigars!!! Lol.

  32. Mr. Scotch

    I’m not familiar with the Gurkha line, would love to give them a try.

  42. Pat Geer

    Always looking for a Gurkha I really enjoy. Has been very hit and (mostly) miss, but mainly because of burn issues. Completely fresh might help. 🙂
