Everything about the Gurkha Perfecto is made to resemble a 1957 Cuban. The cigars of each box are tied together in the island fashion; even the limited production boxes are numbered. This Gurkha is an absolutely top-of-the-line Dominican. The Cuban-seed, Dominican-grown long filler tobaccos, every bit on a par with the Cuban Vuelta Abajo, are meticulously selected, aged, and manufactured to the highest industry standards in the traditional Cuban shapes. When added to the five year-old Connecticut Shade wrapper, the result is nothing short of spectacular.
