Gurkha does it again, and this time they're going Rogue.
Take a peek at the third release under Gurkha's East India Trading line and behold a solid offering worthy of the mighty Gurkha name. This gem starts with a velvety smooth golden Ecuadorian Habano wrapper draped over a rare Ecuadorian binder and 3-year-aged blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican ligero long-filler leaves. The result?
A full-flavored, medium to full-bodied profile that means business. Complexity? Check. Top-notch construction? Check. Unique un-finished foot? Check. Lively notes of spice, tobacco, and roasted chestnuts gradually build in intensity for a grand crescendo. Prepare thyself for a tasty ride that lives up to expectations, all at a CI price that’s just as scrumptious.Gurkha Rogue received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "A very dark squarish cigar with an uncut foot. It's toasty and spicy, with a sweet nutty character that becomes toasted by the finish."
Smoking my 3rd rascal in 3 days and I'm really impressed. Lots of smoke with a loose draw packs a medium punch with cocoa and cherry flavors to it. Have to say I'll be back for more. This cigar has legs, and I will be buying a few more for my humi.
This is a well made cigar with a good burn and remains even. It is not as strong as I would have liked, but would be a great addition for those who prefer a mild to medium smoke. The only bad thing I will say about it is the fact it is box pressed. This probably doesn't bother most of you but I like my cigars round. Other than that, I don't feel a 5 pack of these would be a waste of money.
Armageddon starts out very strong but then mellows nicely into deep and rich flavors that would go very well with a nice beer on a sunny day. The draw is incredibly smooth and yields huge clouds that linger almost as long as the wonderful flavor. This is a very thick cigar and demands special attention so probably not a golf type smoke. Nice tight white ash just the way I like. Highly recommended.
Gurka Rogue Tyrant, a re review after some humi time. Medium to full. Flavors of earth, dark chocolate, molasses, cocoa, espresso, and hints of dark fruit. Totally a 180 from when I first lit her up. Draw lil snugger with good smoke output. Long sweet earth nutt finish. Even burn. No construction issues this time. Id rate a 92 this time around.
Gurkha Rogue Tyrant is a mild to medium bodied cigar. Dominant flavors are of dark cocoa earth , espresso, and a hint of nut. Very loose draw, almost airy as if the cigar was lightly packed however did produce plenty of smoke. Finish was short with bitter cocoa and but coating the pallette. No construction issues. My particular cigar was smoked after only a couple of days of humi rest. I being a gurkha fan, almost hoarding all the blends they have this cigar in terms of flavor was very one dimensional and mild to medium. Was really looking forward to it from all the reviews I've read. Maybe the lack of jumi time or the small vitola. I will have to rate this cigar a 85, 85 for the lack of flavor and strength and even the firm draws I like from the many Gurkha's I'm accustomed too. Gurkha being my favorite brand I will stay a loyal fan and give the remaining of my box some sleeping time and review again after :-\ :-\
I am a big time Gurkha fan and saw this at my local humidor. Tried it out (the tyrant) and it was awesome. I went back and bought a box of them. Good smoke all the way through.
