Gurkha 125th Anniversary Beer Stein - Half Litre

Gurkha 125th Anniversary Beer Stein - Half Litre

Clearing out some space and you find some cool things! We got 6 of these about 5 years ago from Gurkha and they've been siting on the shelf in the back, all packaged up for all this time.

These are awesome heavy, thick glass Gurkha Beer Steins with cool Gurkha graphics (see pics). I'm guessing they hold about half litre, maybe more, but not sure. Trust me though, you'll get as much beer in there are you need at any one time!  As a size/scale guide, pictured wirth the stein is a 6 inch Gurkha Ghost Asura cigar.

These steins are so solid I wonder if they even need any bubble wrap to ship? I guess yes, to be safe, but they're so hefty you would have to make a real effort to break one of these. Anyway, as with all this one off logo stuff, once they're gone they're gone forever. Did a quick Google search and absolutely no one else has these. So we have 6, and they'll go fast, so get yours today!  Perfect cigar gift, for a cigar guy that likes the brew!

Brand Profile

The year 2012 commemorated the 125th Anniversary of the Gurkha cigar.  It was back in 1887, at the height of the British rule that colonial soldiers first began to smoke and enjoy their own cigars from local tobacco. The fondness of the British for these legendary Nepalese fighters inspired them to name their cigars ‘Gurkhas’.

“We are very proud to continue the legacy and tradition of the Gurkha cigar,” said Gary Hyams, President of Gurkha Cigar Group, Inc. “The blending process has been a fascinating and creative journey and we are excited for cigar enthusiasts to try the finished product, which we feel appeals to all palates.”

Working in close collaboration with the Tabacos Don Leoncio factory in the Dominican Republic, the Gurkha 125th Anniversary cigar blend features an oily Cubra, Habano wrapper that is accompanied by an Ecuadorian, Habano binder and a complex combination of Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Dominican fillers. This intriguing medium bodied cigar encompasses a very smooth and flavorful taste profile, with tasting notes of rich tobacco and subtle hints of sweet spice, vanilla and chestnut. World-renowned for their packaging and design, the 125th Anniversary is worthy of another Gurkha masterpiece with each box being hand-carved using the finest mango wood and finished with exquisite brass fittings.

“We have been meticulous with every detail surrounding the Gurkha 125th Anniversary cigar project,” said Kaizad Hansotia, Chairman of Gurkha Cigar Group, Inc. “From the blend to the packaging and presentation, we are proud to have created a cigar that we believe truly lives up to the expectations of an anniversary cigar.”

From Cigar Aficionado:
"Gurkha cigars have long been known for eye-popping packaging, and considerably high prices. The company makes one cigar brand that sells for $700 a box, and another flavored with Cognac that retails for nearly $500 for a single cigar. A few years ago, however, the company set out in a new direction, adding new brands with more traditional pricing, and seeking out other cigar factories to make its brands under contract, expanding its portfolio. The new cigars have done well in our blind taste tests, none better than the Gurkha 125th Anniversary XO.

Made at the standout PDR Factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, this cigar impressed us again and again in our tests. It has a lovely flavor of dried orange peel, some leather and cedar, and is a balanced smoke with no shortage of elegance.

Brand owner Kaizad Hansotia dates the origin of the Gurkha name on cigars back 125 years; he bought the brand rights in the 1980s and brought Gurkhas to the United States in the 1990s. This is the first time one of his cigars has placed in our Top 25, and the best score we’ve ever given a Gurkha."
