Gurkha- Centurian










Wrapper: Connecticut wrapper                                                                                                          Binder/Filler: Dominican                                                                                                                         Size: 6 x 60                                                                                                                                                 Age: Few months                                                                                                                               Smoking Location- Ghetto Smoke Shack                                                                                                  Cut Method- Dual Blade

Pre-Smoke & Construction:  Bumpy, rough, lots of veins. Smells of Earth, slight chocolate and bits of coffee

Pre Draw: Slight spice, with hints of chocolate

Method- 3 flame torch

Very rich first pull, with an almost mossy type taste (or what I would imagine moss tasting like) with a hint of spice.  The draw is horrid the first 1/3 (poker after every 3rd draw).  The earthy flavored continued on through the middle half of the stick, then turned to a woody/coffee like flavor with great rich smoke.

The draw has not gotten better.  Last half, continued the woody flavor but more coffee with hints of chocolate. I wanted to toss this to the side after the frustrating draw, but finished it and was glad I did for the flavor profile. The last section was very rich and creamy. I think the draw is due to the shape of the stick.

Ash length- 1.5

Flavor- 7

Draw- 4

Construction- 5

Appearance- 8.0

Box Worthy?  No, but I would not hesitate to pick up a single stick here and there.
