If you’ve never smoked a Gurkha, chances are, you don’t even know what they are. These fancy cigars are purchased by the wealthy and elite of this nation, and former president Bill Clinton is one who enjoys them.

Kaizad Hansotia, the chief executive officer of Gurkha, told Bloomberg News that one box of “His Majesty’s Reserve” fetches $25,000 and that is expected to rise to about $30,000 next year.

“We hunt for the most exotic tobaccos around the world,” Hansotia said. The company comes out with about 20,000 boxes per year, and has a three-year waiting list.

Clients include the fanciest of business leaders, dignitaries and royal families. Celebrities like Matthew McConaughey and apparently Bill Clinton, are among those who enjoy them.
