Luxury Cigars: Is there a cigar smoker in your life that deserves to be treated royally? If so, then present his royal highness with the most kingly of cigars of them all, a His Majesty Reserve cigar from Gurkha. Just one of these 7.5-inch is a $750 investment in what many pundits and enthusiast call the greatest cigar ever.
The premium cigar, a.k.a., HMR, is sold individually or in a box set of 20, which sells for $15,000. This is a yearly limited-edition specialty. Only 75 boxes or 1,500 cigars total were prepared for market this year. The elaborate infusion process to bring a box of HMR to market involves a rare mix of the finest tobaccos and an entire bottle of Louis XIII de Remy Martin cognac, which ranges approximately from $1,500 to $3,800 per bottle.
Up in smoke: The filler tobacco in an HMR is a well-kept secret. Getting the grabs on an HMR may be difficult due to demand. It is so high that the president of Gurkha is the ultimate decision-maker in spreading the cigars among the VIPs willing to pay to dollar.
