Rogue Rascal

This dark scoundrel from the makers of Gurkha is an imposing looking beast with a skulled double white band. First light brings a plethora of flavors dominated by heavy teak wood. This initial flavor never ceases, but does give ground to coffee, spice and nut flavors. The draw is fairly loose with a corresponding uneven burn. The body, meanwhile, meanders along in the medium range for most of the smoke until it kicks in for a rich, full-bodied finish. The 5 ½” x 46 Rogue Rascal is an interesting smoke with some unique flavor combinations, but just cannot shake construction issues. Ultimately the Rogue is decent, but a bit underwhelming.
