Press Release: Bombay Tobak releases Gaaja

Bombay Tobak, the makers of MBombay cigars, officially released their new brand, Gaaja (pronounced: Gaa-ya), on July 1, 2016.  In Sanskrit language “Gaja” (pronounced: Guj) means elephant.

The blend will incorporate tobaccos from Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, and the Dominican Republic.  Gaaja will only be available in one size (6 x 54 box-press Toro).

Per Bombay Tobak: “We had been working on the blend of Gaaja for more than 4 years.  The process involved in logistics and long fermentation of tobacco from countries like Peru and Paraguay really tested our patience.  We had to wait for 3 vintages of the Hybrid Connecticut wrapper leaf for the protection we wanted.  As the elders say, “patience pays off”; hence Gaaja.
