Our Thompson Challenger Series cigars were conceived as alternatives to the big name national brands that we all know and love. Blended and manufactured by one of our most trusted boutique suppliers, Challenger Series cigars use only the finest small batch tobaccos and the most experienced rollers. We believe that while our Challenger Series cigars might share many of the attributes of brands like Macanudo, Partagas, and La Gloria Cubana, they also stand completely on their own merit. Thompson Challenger Series cigars are available in a unique Connecticut blend and packaged in 16 count bundles.
The secret of today's rich Partagas cigars lies in their wrapper leaves. Grown in Cameroon, the Central West African country where the steaming, sub-tropical climate unique to the fourth parallel is ideal for growing superb wrapper leaves, Cameroon wrappers have no equals for rich flavor. So rich yet never harsh, a Partagas cigar has all the flavor and character that is about as close as you can get to the cigars made in Cuba B.C.(before Castro).
The Gurkha Havana Selection is handmade in Danli, Honduras with an ultra-secret blend of Cuban-seed long fillers and a brilliant Connecticut Broadleaf binder and Connecticut Shade wrapper. The combination is one of the most expensive collections of cigar leaf tobaccos ever put on a cigar, but the taste is nothing short of spectacular. While supplies last get 3 Gurkha European cigars plus a mug set ($60 value) with box purchase.
