Summer Edition 2011 – Gurkha

cigar-journal-summer-2011-cover-gurkha-cigars The Gurkha brand, originally smoked by the British Army’s Gurkha Regiment, can look back on a long history. In the Summer 2011 edition, we presented Kaizad Hansotia, the man behind the Gurkha brand today. We met him in Florida and found out more about how he came to the world of cigars, why the brand is still highly appreciated by soldiers and about Kaizad’s love of the Super Premium.

In the Summer 2011 edition, our humidor expert Marc André takes time to answer the most frequently asked questions about storing cigars, and Tobacco Corner looks at the special features of Brazilian tobacco. For a very special portrait, we went to Vrijdag Premium Printing, a long-standing Dutch company that is responsible for the world’s artistic cigar rings and vistas.

If you missed this edition, you can order a back-issue.

The following is an overview of the contents of the 2/2011 edition.
