Ridiculously Costly Most Expensive Cigars
A cigar brand renowned for producing the Rolls Royce of cigars is Gurkha. This high-end cigar company has the ability to blend premium vintage tobacco with magnificent packaging. Gurkha is famous for not only producing some of the most coveted cigars, but also the most expensive cigar: namely the His Majesty’s Reserve (HMR) blend.
The His Majesty’s Reserve is extremely rare with production limited to 75 boxes per year. This cigar blend is made with tobacco left to age for 18 years and soaks in some of the world’s most expensive Louis XIII cognac. Plus, the tobacco is wrapped with a 12 year old Dominican binder and 15 year Connecticut Maduro wrapper.
While the box of 20 His Majesty’s Reserve cigars can cost $25,000 ($1250 per cigar) the taste and aroma of this blend is certain to be something that isn’t likely to be forgotten. Each cigar is 8 ½ inches in length and has a 52 inch ring size. With a waiting list in the region of 3 years, these cigars are extremely rare and only available to purchase at some of the most exclusive cigar shops in the world.
Even at this price the His Majesty’s Reserve cigars are still in demand by the elite and a box of these cigars is expected to increase in the near future to $30,000.
Other high-end blends for cigar include the Fuente Don Arturo AnniverXario, Cohiba Behike, Arturo Fuente Opus X Ltd, and Gurkha Black Dragon. The most expensive cigar blends are rare and difficult to source because they are often produced in limited numbers or for special occasions.
