Gurkha Makes The Rarest Cigar In The World

Under the careful watch of Gurkha Chairman Mr. K Hansotia, this unique cigar is made exclusively for these brave soldiers and may only be smoked and enjoyed by a Delta Force member. This cigar is comprised of a proprietary blend using some of the rarest tobaccos in the world. Only a limited number of cigars (classified) have been produced and will not be made available to the public. Every cigar has been hand inspected under careful supervision and perfectly aged under lock and key. Gurkha is already famous for producing the world’s most expensive cigar: ‘His Majesty’s Reserve’, which has a generous price tag of $16,500 (per box of 20 cigars), but offers for the Delta Force cigar are already reported for close to $2,000 per cigar.

“It is an honor and privilege to be chosen as the official cigar of the Delta Teams,” said Kaizad Hansotia, Chairman of Gurkha Cigar Group. “We have a strong relationship with the military and we appreciate their dedication to serve and protect our nation.”

Often referred to as the Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta Unit (SFOD-D), the Delta Force are highly trained soldiers specializing in counter-terrorism missions, including hostage rescue, reconnaissance and barricade operations. Delta Force soldiers come from the highest elite branches of the military. The select few that are chosen are carefully screened both physically and mentally before entering an intensive six-month training regiment course to be carefully versed and specially trained for a multitude of the world’s most dangerous, volatile and catastrophic scenarios.
