Many people are against smoking, either as a result of religious beliefs or for health reasons, but there are a group of people who can’t wrap their heads around why religion should be the judge of what goes into their system and don’t give a hoot about what the ministry of health has to say about their health. Some of them can’t seem to get enough and don’t mind dropping relatively large sums on a single stick, not even if it costs $2,000 per stick like in the case of His Majesty’s Reserve Gurkha Cigar, which at that price tag is the world’s most expensive cigar.
The Dominican Republic handmade cigar is retailed at the Ritz Carlton Resort’s Bachelor Gulch’s Bachelors Lounge, in Colorado at the price of $2,000 per stick. So what exactly contributes to its rather ridiculous price tag? His Majesty’s Reserve Gurkha Cigar features an 18-year-old Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper and a 12-year-old Dominican binder and filler. The inside contains a 16-year-old tobacco infused with 40-100 years old Louis XIII Remy Martin Cognac. It will take a duration of two hours for a full smoke of this 7½ x 52 double corona cigar. Since a box contains 20 sticks, we’re guessing it will cost something around $40,000. Now that is some price for a pack of cigars!
