Cigars and bourbon go together like love and marriage. So it’s not surprising that cigar legend Kaizad Hansotia paired the two to create the Gurkha Bourbon Collection. The Gurkha Bourbon Collection is a collaboration with Hartfield & Co. Distillery located in Paris, Kentucky.
“Combining the legacy of Gurkha Cigars with our handcrafted bourbon made in Bourbon County, KY, was simply too incredible to pass up. In creating our bourbon, we focused on the complexity of the flavor and the experience we wanted when we sat down with a glass of bourbon. A fine cigar company does much the same thing. With two expertly crafted products combined into one, you have the chance to broaden the flavor profile and enhance the overall experience. Partnering with Gurkha Cigars seemed to be a very natural fit.”- Andrew Buchanan, founder and head distiller at Hartfield & Company.
This unique Churchill has a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper and Dominican fillers infused with bourbon. You’ll be greeted with notes of warm aged Kentucky bourbon , cocoa and nuts. These unique cigars are something to enjoy with your favorite bourbon, neat or on the rocks. You will savor the sophistication of this combination as the flavors pique your palate. The obvious choice, of course, is Hartfield Bourbon Whiskey.
Founded in 2014, Hartfield & Company is the first distillery to open in Bourbon County, Kentucky, since 1919. Hartfield Bourbon Whiskey brings together the flavors of Kentucky- sourced corn and rye, with malted barley that creates earthy, well balanced bourbon. Notes of caramel, vanilla and oak are present alongside those of smoke, tobacco and leather, inherently from the barley. There is also a pepper from the rye, and a sweetness from the corn. Hartfield & Co. Bourbon Whiskey and Gurkha Bourbon Maduro is a match made in heaven for any cigar smoking, whiskey drinking, red- blooded American.
