The Rouxgaroux! The Cajun Werewolf. It prowls the sugar cane fields outside New Orleans looking for it's next victim.

Watch City's "Rouxgaroux" is based upon a bed of our "Simply Red" and a matured red Virginia. Rouxgaroux is an indulgent melange of flavors of stewed fig and plum. spiced with a generous amount of perique along with some stoved Virginia and a bit of bright Virginia for a unique floral note that drifts in and out through the bowl.

Notes: Co-created by Ernie Q and JimInks. Blended at Watch City by Ernie.

First time I've been the first to review a new blend in this forum, so here goes. This is a joint venture between Ernie at Watch City and JimInks. Ernie says it's his "Simply Red" with additional Red Virginia, Perique, and some "pixie dust". I would have said "brownie sprinkles", but why quibble. The bulk weed is beautiful: ribbon cut, lots of dark red Virginia, some mottled bright Virginia color, and about 25% black flakes. These are evidently a combination of stoved Virginia and for sure a lot of perique. It is smokable right out of the bag, no drying time needed. In the bag, it smells like raisins, red wine, a little hay, and vinegar. Lighting up, you can taste the vinegar, the perique is very noticeable and on the peppery side of the spectrum. There is a little citrus and a little grass, some plum. About 1/2 way through the bowl it gets sweeter-beautiful powdery fruit sweetness-really nice; less sweet then, say, Dorchester or Marlin Flake, more subtle, more smooth. I like it, but then again I like "Simply Red". Highly recommended, try it, but please leave a little for me.
