In creating Hudson Bay, Gurkha owner Kaizad Hansotia hand-selected aged tobaccos of optimum quality as usual. But this time, he also honed in on one other very important detail: sharpening the pencil on price. The outcome is magnificent and Gurkha’s Hudson Bay is a true anomaly. How could a cigar composed of such fine tobaccos cost so little? It's a head-scratcher.
Handcrafted in one of Nicaragua’s top factories with a Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-filler recipe, Ometepe binders, and a muscular, leathery San Andres wrapper, this lovely, densely packed premium burns slow and cool with a bold, rich bouquet. Medium in strength with enjoyable notes of leather, earth, black pepper, and espresso delivered in velvety-smooth fashion. Delicious. Deeply discounted. Deserving of a permanent stay in your everyday rotation.
