Spotlight Brand: Gurkha Yakuza Quickview Gurkha’s boldest offering yet.The Japanese Yakuza is a feared, international organized crime syndicate who are known for their copious tattoos and missing pinky fingers. In conceptualizing Gurkha Yakuza, the brand knew it had to come up with an exceptionally strong and robust blend to live up to the Yakuza legend, so a Connecticut leaf will not be found. A blend as special as Yakuza shouldn’t come with run of the mill packaging, so in true Gurkha style, Yakuza cigars are packaged in an intricately hand-carved box. Each humidor-style box is individually hand-carved on 5 sides by a Nicaraguan artisan in the style of traditional Japanese tattooing, and comes with a 2-tiered lift out tray that can hold up to 50 premium cigars.Gurkha Yakuza kicks down the door with four different helpings of ligero, and comes dressed in a dark, oily Ecuador Habano wrapper. Beneath the sheets you’ll find a fierce long leaf blend of premium Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos with a feisty Nicaraguan binder. Gurkha Yakuza is full-bodied and memorable, with flavors of leather, spice, espresso, nuts, and charred oak, lending to a satisfying and complex cigar.
