Gurkha Special Ops Sniper Cigars

May 24, 2016

Category: Vices

Part of being on a sniper stakeout means waiting patiently for your target to present themselves and get confirmation before taking the shot. It’s a procedure that can take hours, even days, to complete and therefore requires a whole lot of patience. Well, what better way to pass the time with your spotter than with a set of Sniper Cigars from Gurkha?

The cigar outfit is offering 100 of these special ops tribute cigar sets to elite troops serving overseas in honor of Memorial Day. And in addition to the 20 limited edition Sniper cigars, officers will receive a combat knife and a challenge coin in their Pelican-style waterproof cigar case. It’s all part of the Gurkha “Smoke ‘Em After You Smoke ‘Em” campaign in conjunction with TacticalShit, a special forces website. Each cigar is medium to full-bodied with a Dominican wrapper, Indonesian binder, and Dominican/Nicaraguan filler. Fortunate civilians will also be able to buy a box of 20 for $250. [H/T: Maxim]
