At Total Product Expo (TPE) 2023 Gurkha Cigars introduced a three-blend value set known as the Grand Age II. As the name indicates, it is a spinoff of an older Gurkha line, the Gurkha Grand Age.
“The Grand Age II is a fun project we’ve been developing over the past few months,” comments Jim Colucci, President and CEO of Gurkha Cigars, in a press release. “We discovered an allotment of Grand Age boxes in our factories and decided we wanted to do something special with them, bringing a new spin on a favorite Gurkha packaging. We developed an insert to house three different toro size cigars in one master box. We’re partnering with a new factory and we just loved the blend so we decided to showcase it in this manner and bring it to consumers.”
The original Grand Age boxes were treasure-chest-style wooden boxes. The Grand Age II utilizes the same chest. There will be three blends, with 20 cigars per blend. This includes 20 Grand Age II Connecticut, 20 Grand Age II Habano, and 20 Grande Age II Maduro cigars. The Grand Age II comes in one size – a 6 x 54 cigar. Pricing is set at $6.50 per cigar.
The Grand Age II is scheduled to ship to retailers in the Spring of 2023 and debuts for the first time at the TPE 2023.
