Sailing from the nautical halls of history into the modern day is the resurgence of the East India Trading Company. The Beach Cigar Group, best known for producing Gurkha, has revived the East India Trading Company name for their latest creation. The following is a press release from the Beach Cigar Group detailing the launch of their new line the Wicked Indie:

(Miami, FL) – November 2nd, 2011: Be on the lookout for the Goblin as the Beach Cigar Group, makers of the super premium cigar brand Gurkha, proudly announces the release of the much anticipated ‘Wicked Indie,’ that arrives at cigar stores nationwide this November.

The Wicked Indie is the first cigar release under the East India Trading Company, a subsidiary of the Beach Cigar Group/Gurkha, and also known as one of the oldest registered trademarks in the world. Housed in rustic and authentic 50-count wooden boxes, the Wicked Indie is a medium to full-bodied all Nicaraguan Puro that provides an exceptional combination of flavor and strength that is a must try for any cigar enthusiast.

“We are very excited about the new Wicked Indie, which is a fantastic blend at a great price point,” said Gary Hyams, President and CEO of Beach Cigar Group. “We are proud that this is the first cigar release under the East India Trading Company.”

The Wicked Indie blend is comprised of an oily Habano, Nicaraguan wrapper, a carefully selected Nicaraguan binder that is combined with rare, 3-year aged Nicaraguan fillers and will be available in 4 sizes: a 5 x 52 Robusto, 6 x 54 Toro, 7 x 50 Churchill and a 6 x 60 XO, with an MSRP ranging from $4.79-5.90. This cigar encompasses a rich and complex taste profile, full of sweet spice and nuttiness that evolves to a long and cool finish.

    These cigars look like they have a wicked presentation. I’ll be excited to try one out and see if they measure up!

      Yeah, they look interesting and so far most of the releases this year from Gurkha haven’t been too bad. I’ll be curious to see if they maintain consistency over the long haul.

    Did they send you some to try? Gurkha is taking care of bloggers this year, there’ll probably be a wave of Gurkha reviews in December from what I can gather 🙂

      They sent out a package and some cigars laying out all of their brands for the year thus far, and some info on each. With Oliver at the helm of media they will definitely be a lot more aggressive online. He’s a great guy and really understands the power of the online media niche.
