Gurkha Grand Age cigars take their name from British soldiers in colonial India who made their own cigars from the local tobacco. These soldiers' fondness for the legendary Nepalese fighters inspired them to name their cigars 'Gurkhas.' Eventually, however, the Gurkha cigar simply lapsed into obscurity. Steeped in legend and history, the Gurkha cigar, created more than a century ago, has been reborn and remains true to its roots in faraway India. Today, the Grand Age of the Gurkha lives on!
