July 2014 - With a brand new makeover to a consistent premium blend, Gurkha Cigar Group is proud to announce the reintroduction of Pedro Martin Ruby and Maduro Cigars. Gurkha welcomed Maria Martin and the Pedro Martin brand under the corporation¹s umbrella in the spring of 2013 and closed the year with the release of the Limted Edition 2013. ³The Limited Edition 2013 has had a wonderful reception by retailers nationwide,² says Maria Martin, Pedro Martin Brand Ambassador. ³Many of our customers have repeatedly asked for the popular Pedro Martin brands and now we are happy to finally be able to introduce them once again.²
The Pedro Martin Maduro and Ruby cigars are set to be re-released at IPCPR this month. These medium to full body, full flavor cigars include the traditional Pedro Martin blends with a brand new look and feel under the same watchful eye of Arsenio Ramos in TABASA ESTELI NICARAGUA. Set to incorporate the customary feel of old world Cuba, family tradition, and a matter of pride, Gurkha has paired with Maria Martin to honor the famed master blender of cigars himself: Pedro Martin, with a brand new band and box. The Pedro Martin Maduro includes a Mexican San Andrés Wrapper, Nicaraguan Maduro Binder, and Nicaraguan Filler to incorporate the flavors of spice, caramel, sweetness, and cocoa. The Pedro Martin Ruby includes a Red Colorado Corojo Wrapper, Nicaraguan Binder, and Nicaraguan Filler for another medium to full body profile. Both cigars will be available in the following three sizes: Robusto (5x50), Toro (6x52), and XO (6x60) with an MSRP set between $7.50 and $10.10 per cigar.
I am beholden to both Juan Lopez and Kaizad Hansotia for giving me the opportunity to honor my father through the Gurkha brand. I know dad is looking down and proud to see his legacy continue, said Maria Martin, Official Brand Ambassador to the Pedro Martin line. With all these Pedro Martin releases, Gurkha Cigar Group could not be more proud of the hard work and dedication that the company has pulled together to present these new cigars to both new cigar lovers and aficionados alike. Be on the lookout for these new brands and other traditional favorites from Gurkha Cigar Group at your local retailer.
